In Topic: Bluetooth Music Streaming On Factory Satnav (09 S-Max)

Sorry Supertomy - I saw your PM, but didn't get back. Can't seem to use this from my phone...

 

Anyway, I did not ever get an answer, but to clarify, I have a standard USB socket in my glove box, no jacks, mini usb or anything. I'd love to find out if there's an answer.

 

I also tried hooking up my old iPod, but it doesn't work. Only seems to work with never iPods and iPhones (tried with my Brother-in-Laws iPhone, and my wife's Ipod Nano (1st gen) which work, but my old clock wheel iPod doesn't.)

can anyone tell me if the current behaviour is normal? My wife is complaining about it - I've sort of got used to it.

 

Best I can describe it, if you hit a bump in the road that would deflect the steering, it's effectively amplified by the power steering. Not so much that it would be dangerous, but it's a bit unnatural.

 

certainly my old focus didn't feel like this, but I'm sure something I have driven before has felt like this.

just like the one you can see in the vid here:

when I press cd/aux, i get a "line in" screen, and I can select devices, but bluetooth is not listed.

thanks jeebowhite - sounds a bit involved for me! I'll see if I get used to it first before I start mucking about with stuff like that.

 

Interesting in the diesel v. petrol on here. My old car was a 1.8 petrol, but I just assumed that I'd seen the setting when test driving a diesel and forgotten about it. I think I set it when I first got the car (about 4 years ago), and forgot all about it until i got the new s-max.

 

Old car was written off, so no way to check it now.

ok, thanks! That will stop me cycling through every setting again
