Just saw an advert on the TV for the Ford SYNC with Txt Reader

Is that standard with any spec Fiesta which has SYNC ?

Quite sure it is. If I'm not mistaken it has some compatibility issues with iPhones, though.

Sync does have it, but only certain phone compatibility, ford.co.uk provides a list of comparable phones

For such a 'wonderful' (b****y expensive) phone it does seem to have a lot of compatibility problems with other tech.
It doesn't even work well with iTunes FFS!
Give me Android any day.

Clive you are absolutely right, but once you get an iPhone Apple seem to have you by the short and curlys I never thought I would succumb but I've been suckered in.

I have an iPod touch 4 that now lives in the car permanently purely for internet radio, all removable apps stripped out.
Being basically tied to iTunes for music transfer was a pita plus iTunes doesn't seem to understand the principle of compilation albums and throws all my music into seperate folders.
With my S3 I just drag and drop music to it with no problems and it's much faster.

easyphonesync on android drags tunes off itunes and bungs them onto android. Great app for anyone that does not feel the love for itunes anymore!

That could be quite embarrassing if a text lands that you don't really want passengers to hear

It only reads them if you choose listen though ? On my iphone 5s that's what it does anyway. I have to press read or listen etc when it comes up.
