Ford Sync Update (Usb)

06 November 2013 - 07:49 PM

I called Ford customer service today to ask about Sync updates.


In the US, you can download them and install them yourself.  The UK site just says "soon you will be able to....".


My father-in-law has a 63 plate and this version is two later than my 13 plate.  Has anyone request an update via their dealer.  I read somewhere that they will charge £80 for it - which I can't believe.. It should be free.  Has anyone had any experience of requesting it?


I complained to them that there is no Europe equivalent of a customer support forum, so there is no way for the masses to complain about the horrendous design.  I asked why there are two info buttons for example.  I also asked for someone to define the word 'soon'.  As to me, 7 month is not 'soon' in my book.


Rant over....


btw, I did find a great site called syncsucks.com.  It seems the US don't like some bits either.

Urgent - Cannot Close Door

06 November 2013 - 07:38 PM

I have an urgent problem in that I am unable to close my Focus door.  The door mechanism is in the closed position so it just knocks on the latch on the frame.  Is there anything I can do to free it to enable me close the door?

Mk3 Setting Cruise Display To Kmph - Possible?

03 September 2013 - 06:19 PM

I got back from a holiday in France recently and had some grief trying to get the cruise control to display in kmph.

If I set the units to l/km, I get the odometer in km, but the cruise still displays in m.p.h. which seems pretty daft.

It's it just me?

How Do You Enter Diags On Mk2.5 Focus With Start Button

26 March 2013 - 11:12 AM

Hi folks,


My father-in-laws mk2.5 titanium gave an enginine failure error which has now cleared.  Can you still access that data on the dash display.  I know on the mk2, you could get it by switching to position 3 and holding trip reset.  Is that facility available on his?


Cheers, Rob

Where's The Best Place To Put A Satnav On Mk3 Focus?

06 March 2013 - 08:52 PM

I'm trying to figure where to mount a tomtom (or device you need to see the screen of)


I bought one of these:




but the socket on my new focus is not particularly robust or tight, so it wobbles.  Also, I don't like looking down at the screen.  The other option was something like this:








Where have others put theirs?
