Hi guys,

I have my iPhone linked up to the car via USB for my
music, and Bluetooth for calls. However if I recieve a call when listenening to a track off the iPod, I can take the call as normal but when the calls ended the music doesn't resume playing. I have to press the ok button twice to resume. It's not a great hardship but I'd rather it just
resume playing.

Does everyone elses do this or just mine? Lol

I cant even get my 3GS to play as an iPod. I could get my 3G to and can get my mates 3Gs to but not my 3GS... really odd.

Having troubles with mine too :( It seems the car/phone get confused between the speaker modes.....I've had the following
1. Works fine....occasionally
2. iPod track details displayed fine, but no sound in ipod mode
either => 2.a. press aux again and sound on 'line-in'
or => 2.b. press aux and get sound on 'bluetooth' mode

Is this the iphone or the car causing the problems?

I thought I'd ask a question around this topic hope somebody has the answer...

You lot seem to be using the same device (iPhone) for calls and music...handy and fair enough...

I really hope my car (when it arrives) isn't going to get confused with the following - I'll be keeping my phone (iPhone 3G) in a "mount" attached to the dash somewhere and ONLY using it for calls; but for music it'll be iPod Nano (generation before the current one) via USB.

Anyone foresee any problems with this setup??? Like when a call comes through, the music should cut out and call come through right?

Thanks in advance.

Peter.

If your iphone is just set to bluetooth and the nano is playing through AUX, then I don't think you should have any problems.

Nope, no problems what so ever, cause that's the EXACT same thing that I have done. Works fine, also my iPhone works as an iPod fine but I can't change tracks etc with the stereo. No biggy as I use my Nano, the stereo is also very fast changing tracks with the Nano too. Oh I have the fatboy Nano, I think it's the third gen one?

Cheers for the replies guys. I'll probably be using Y-Cable for Nano and yeah iPhone will be in pocket or a mount if I can find a decent one.

Thanks again this helps.

I've just bought a Focus 1.6 Titanium with the Communications Pack. When i plug my Ipod Touch in through the USB, i'm able to navigate thorugh my music no problem but when i play anything there is no sound.

I've made sure the volume is up on the Ipod but there is a 'mute' symbol that appears on the radio screen.

Can anyone help with this?

You need a Y cable from Ford or I think they can be had from E Bay for 15 to 20. It utilises the USB for the info from the iPod and the 2.5mm jack plug for the sound. I think that's correct,but I've never used the iPod, prefer a USB stick.

Alternatively, you can get a USB stick and plug it in the USB slot which does everything the iPod does.

The advantage of the USB stick is that you can leave it in the car at all times negating the need to plug the iPod in and remembering to take it out. Of course, you can use a USB extension etc and hide the ipod away, but it's a lot of hassle. Plus, you have the added bopnus of using iTunes less often. ;)

See here for more info on the Y cable
