Bluetooth Audio 2009 Titanium

7 posts in this topic

Hi all, I'm new here so forgive me if this is somewhere on the forum already!

Basically I'm wondering how I get bluetooth audio to work, I use bt for my phone and that works fine but I've never worked out how to use it to play music.

I can select audio output on my phone and select ford audio, and under the audio options on the ford menu there's a section for Bluetooth, but I can't work out how to do playback?

I only have a line in for aux no USB, so its an audio cable only for me at the moment which is less than ideal. Any help would be great

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately if you don't have USB you also don't have Bluetooth streaming audio, it can only be used for calls.

Really? That sucks, what does a USB port have to do with Bluetooth audio, surely its all in the ford software?

Good job ford :/ would have thought the titanium would definitely have it

It's the way Ford programmed it I'm afraid. If you had your heart set on it you'd need to swap out the module (£75-£100 used on eBay) and get the car reprogrammed to 'see' it.

Hi, I dont know if this will work with yours but I have a 12 plate Zetec and when the phone is connected to the car via the bluetooth if I push the AUX button it starts to play the music from my phone. I have no other connection from phone to car only the bluetooth. Worth a try anyway, hope this works for you.

This will only work if you have USB (even though the phone isn't physically plugged in on the USB port at the time)

There is a cheap and nasty way of playing songs over Bluetooth without USB; I can't remember the exact voice commands but it's something along the lines of "Bluetooth" > "play" (if it's not Bluetooth it's "external device")

The music should then play but it'll be telephone quality and you can't skip tracks from the steering wheel or stereo.

Hrm so it must be software/firmware then, I find it really odd! Shame ford haven't done an update for it
