Noticed that Will had put that by using the Ford "Y" cable you can get album artwork on the screen ? Has anyone else done this as I have tried and all I get is track name / artist ?

Have something to contribute?

Chaps don't waste your time getting your album artwork onto your new focus system as it don't have the software till next year - USA have it which is MyFord Touch but not UK so don't waste time like I have !

I was on the understanding that you could, but due to the y cable switching the Bluetooth off your phone buying a 20pound lead and picking up 3 points on you licence with a fine everytime you want to use you phone (for a crazy thing like a phone call, who would of thought of that) sounds like only an idiot would bother in my personal opinion.

Does not switch Bluetooth off ? With "Y" cable in calls can be made and received as I did try it . So I am not an idiot thanks.

Hi, I don't think it will be possible even with updated software as the MyFord touch is a completely different thing http://en.wikipedia....ki/MyFord_Touch

Totally agree mate from what I have read up on - just never understand why people say it can be done when clearly it can't ? I would only post facts not guess and lead people down the wrong path. Cheers anyway will check that site out.

It don't switch off Bluetooth - you can't have album art ? So I take it your discussion did not involve the new Sony fitted in the new focus or is it the new one youhave ?
