In Topic: Ford Sync Update (Usb)

My dealer has said that there are no updates. That seems very very strange, since I have two identical cars with different versions.. I get the impression I'm being fobbed off. Time to call CS again.

pretty much its a shame ford didnt sort it out before release as its a good system but having so many involved in it and all debating whos fault it is something doesnt work is pretty silly on fords part i think they are looking at apples system and microsofts windows 8 as the next platfo...


I found a cost mentioned here (Although that's from 2011, so it may not he the same system)


I've tried saying "Radio" to mine and nothing happens. The manual also says nothing about the ability to control it.

the sync has been a bit of a fail for ford the updates should be free as its a update to fix software bugs microsoft designed it to fords specs and the system clearly wasnt tested as well as ford claim but a neighbour has the same issue and was told by the dealer thay dont know when the update will be available they would enquire and call her back they never did she really doesnt like the system and its glitches ive tried it myself and was unimpressed radio 1 was radio 4 etc etc


I think you need to get a new keyboard.  It's faulty.  Several keys aren't working.  Does Sync operate the radio?  It doesn't in mine.

In Topic: Urgent - Cannot Close Door

I've managed to close it after a bit of trial and error, but it doesn't actually lock shut... looks like a trip to the main dealer tomorrow as it's only 6 months old.  At least the alarm is on.

In Topic: Mk3 Setting Cruise Display To Kmph - Possible?

04 September 2013 - 11:49 AM

lol... that might work.. If I went from 0 to my desired speed in 0.01 seconds...


to make my initial post clearer, I'm talking about the display between the rev counter and speedo.  When you engage cruise, you get a popup that says "Set MPH" (or something close to that)... then when you set the speed, it displays on the top line as XX mph.  If the rest of the display is in KM, it still displays MPH.  imho, if you've set the display to metric, then the cruise display speed should be metric too.


I call my dealer.  Maybe they can find out.
