Mk3 Focus Iphone / Ipod Mount

28 November 2011 - 11:43 PM

Hi guys,

I'd like to fit a mount for my iPod Touch to the car, but can't see where to fit one that won't look too out of place.

Can't use the vents now, cause they point the wrong way and i'd rather not have something suctioned to the window, but it may end up that way.

I use my iPod as SatNav as well, so somewhere with easy eyeline when driving would be nice, but i'm open to any suggestions, as I would consider a sunction mount for SatNav use and somewhere else for daily use.

I have looked at various different mounts, but there is just no good surface I can see to stick something to



Transit Connect Headlights

Hi guys,

I know I could be onto plumbs here, but i'll try anyway before going forum hopping.

We have a 2009 Transit Connect MK1 which I think has an issue with full beam.

In my Focus, when I flash the lights, that puts the lights at their brightest, yes?

In the Connect, if I flash the lights, this is the same.

In my Focus, my full beam brightness is just as bright as the headlight flash, in the van, however, the light pattern does change and the lights appear to cover a wider angle, they just do not get any brighter. Having watched it against a wall,I can confirm the pattern does change, but it's harder to see exactly what the difference is.

In my head what is happening is that perhaps the headlights bulb is a double filament bulb and when I flash the lights, both filaments kick in, but when I select full beam, it switches between fillaments, rather than use both.
- I only had the van for a night and didn't have long enough to look into this in detail.

I hope I have made sense so far.

I need to know initially if this is normal on a Connect and if so, fair enough. On the other hand, has anyone come across this before and can perhaps suggest a solution?
- If it isn't right, i'm thinking maybe a relay?

Thankfully it's still under warranty should this need proper investigation.

Thanks in advance,

MK3 Focus TDCi with iPod controls

Assuming all cost to be equal and that the device was for no other purpose that for music in the car, are there any benifits to having an iPod over a flash drive?

Area Just For Key Code Requests

Can I suggest adding an area just for key code requests, as these are littering the Audio & Electronics area and hiding any useful information

Mk3 Focus Tdci

Hi guys,

Another question for anyone with a MK3 TDCi ... does your car have a glow plug light on the dash?

In my MK2 I was used to waiting until the glow plug light had gone out before attempting to start the car, however, I do not have a glow plug light on the dash of my MK3 ... is this just me?
