I have an iPhone running OS3 with supports A2DP audio playback through bluethooth devices. I was told by the salesman when I purchased my Fiesta that the car would support audio playback. In the menu you can select bluetooth and then select the phone. The phone thinks it is playing the music through the phone but no music is played. Everything looks OK. Not sure what is going on here really.

does your car has bluetooth and usb?

if so connect it up as usual, select aux in, press it again and it should come up bt audio or something similar... it will then play any supported audio files...

as for using an iphone you may struggle as im sure they dont use mp3 they are aac which is only supported by apple devices!

are you a developer?

I think the 'new' software is support to support this (i mean in the car not 3.0)

If people order the USB from you on their Fiesta's do you throw in the USB cable or do you make them buy it?

I know most car salesmen are not that bad! This is just my first experience of buying a new car and every step has been far more complicated than it should have been.

Ah well, pretty much buggered now then. The audio works great though the aux input but channel switching is difficult (this is why I went for the aux rather than USB option, I didn't think 50 was worth it just to change track from the steering wheel). I suppose I will have to upgrade to the iPhone 3GS which has voice control. There is always a way.

Thanks for your help anyway. It will stop me getting too frustrated and breaking something.

So going to have to do that when I pick mine up too then as you're right, a 15 cable against a (after price rise) 16,700 car is a drop in the ocean

True - although whats the point paying 200 for the USB port and then refusing to pay 20 for the cable to make use of it?

And I bet they know that too!

Hi, i have the new '09 fiesta and i never read or heard it can play music via BT. The phone works fine though. only solution is to attach either usb or ipod 3.5mm jack (if you have that option!) and it will then read all phone contents. i use a 16GB usb key and it all works great.
Hope this is helpful, but later i will try my nokia and see. If not i would go back to the salesman and insist on a free upgrade to usb if he told you something untrue on which you agreed to buy the car.
