Loving My New Fiesta!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

Just bought a year-old Fiesta Zetec 1.25 in "Lime Squeeze" and love it already! It's taking me a bit of time getting used to all the features available - will be playing with it at the weekend no doubt. Am I right in assuming that once I plug my iPhone into BOTH the sockets (usb and audio line) I will be able to see the music tracks playing on the radio screen? I connected it via the USB a couple of days ago (after a lesson from the salesman) and it showed a WiFi symbol but no song info... he said that was all it did, but I'm going to dig deeper to find out... Also, has anyone experienced the miles per gallon info jumping about from 22-50-99-23-57-43 mpg? Mine was changing every second which was a bit strange and the average speed said I was doing 24mph (I was doing between 50-60mph on the motorway - in heavy traffic) and the average fuel consumption was 40.2. Can I reset these? Anyone out there know?

Thanks a million folks.

Nice colour!

yes, you are right in that you plug both your iPhone in both the sockets to see it on the radio screen! i think some people on here have downloaded a software update for the stereo so that it only uses the USB but, to some, it appears to be more hassle than its worth at the moment :rolleyes:

the wi-fi symbol you saw is for streaming music via bluetooth - ie from your phone to your stereo. ive never done it though, so im not sure how to do that! just keep pressing the 'aux' button to scroll through which output you want to use :)

that mpg info on your trip computer is like a real time readout. some people dont see the point in it, but its usually what i leave mine on (probably due to my short attnention span :huh: )

you can reset the figures by pressing and holding the button that you use to scroll through the trip computer until the numbers clear from left --> right.

Hope you're enjoying new car syndrome!
