Hi I have a samsung GT15500 phone and it would connect to the bluetooth in the focus I have when I first got the car but now it doesn't stay connected. I have heard there is a update which is done through the usb port in the car. Can anyone tell me where it is? I have looked in the glove box under the dash etc where you think it would be located and all I can find is the connector for the diagnostics.
Please help as I'm getting frustrated :angry:
Thank you

Hi, usually with the audio systems with a Ford the usb port is in the glove box, but with your car I don't know if it will even be there if it's a non-sony radio/cd. Once you find out you will need to go here http://www.ford-mobi...ownloadsUpdates

Hi Chris thanks for that. It is a Sony Stereo with the phone buttons I have looked in the glove box but can't see it will it be under a cover or something or should I take it to the dealers.
Thanks again
Lee

I am wondering why you suspect the radio rather than the phone? You said it used to work, but does not any longer. In the time between it working and not working what changes have you made to the radio? My guess would be none. What changes have you made to your android device? Installed any apps? Updated the OS?

I had a similar problem with my Galaxy Nexus and fixed it by removing all my car apps (was trying to decide on best one, always ended up going back to googles Car app), and rebooting. It's been working fine since.

RE: USB port location have you looked in the center console behind the flip door or near the handbrake?

Thanks I have factory reset my phone and it conects to the car looks at the cals in, calls out and phone book. I can feel my phone vibrate when it connects so I press the phone button on radio to make sure it has connected and it has but then it disconnects itself so when I press the phone button on the radio again it says phone unobtainable.
As for the usb port I have looked all around center cosole and hand brake but have not found it.
Thanks
