In Topic: Sync/txt

21 April 2014 - 10:31 PM

I've got a Windows Phone 8 as well, and it doesn't support reading texts either.


As far as I know the text support isn't available in any Windows phones currently on the market, so I think you'll just have to wait and hope for an update to the phone (that's what I'm doing anyway)

My Nokia 920 works well with Sync, but it's actually the phone that does the work, as it also works with my wife's Qashqai and my Bluetooth headset. I can listen to, and reply to texts using speech only, even on my bike!


Go to Settings/Speech and set Read Incoming Texts Aloud to Bluetooth and Headsets. I also have the Use Speech when the phone is locked, and Enable Speech Recognition Service option ticked in the same menu.

Frustratingly, customers can't yet download a Sync update, it has to be done by the dealer, and some dealers try to charge. I think you can reset the bluetooth module by removing the appropriate fuse, but i'm  someone better qualified will advise.

In Topic: Problems New Fiesta

Just phoned our dealer and our Fiesta does not have a Dpf.

I would be very surprised if that was the case. 


This is a quote from the AA


The exhaust emissions standards for new cars have effectively required fitment of a DPF in the exhaust of diesel cars since 2009 when the 'Euro 5' standard came into force. In fact, many cars registered before 2009 will have had one fitted too in anticipation of the change in standards.

In Topic: Benefits Of Age

25 August 2013 - 10:39 AM

Just got my insurance renewal for my ecoboost £120 quid fully comp and they will give me a new one if mine gets written off (2 yrs or 12000 miles) as I am 1st regisrered, keeper so don't need gap insurance

I must be a similar age as I had a very similar quote from Saga - but my second lowest was £135 from my bank. They also had a £50 off deal running at the time - so it worked out at £85 for the year. Lowest insurance I've ever had.

In Topic: Mk7.5 2013 Fiesta Usb Music Question.

25 August 2013 - 10:36 AM

Don't know about playlists, but if you copy the album folders directly to the root of the drive you should be fine. You don't need to complicate things by creating Folders for Artists etc, as this should already be encoded in the track information. Shuffle play is absolutely fine. One tip - don't use a mac for copying music, otherwise you will be left with a number of tiny additional files that confuse the system, something to do with searchlight on OSX.
