Picked Up New Zetec - Voice Control Sounds Weird?!?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Picked up new frozen white Zetec yesterday complete with bluetooth...

All working fine including wireless streaming however I have one grumble about the women voice on the Ford Voice Commands.

On my previous Style + the womans voice was fairly upbeat, crisp and clear.

On the new Zetec Ive found her voice to be sluggish, as if shes under water or been on the pop!?

Im presuming my stereo already has the latest firmware applied and have even tried updating but everytime I do it says no files found or something similar.

Have tried 3 different USB devices, all extracted to the root of the device and ensured that they are all FAT32 formatted.

I have also ensured that I do

1. Switch Stereo on

2. Insert USB

3. Switch Ignition to II

Nada, nowt, nothing........

So, question is, is my woman retarded or should I get this booked in with Ford?

By 'new' ZS mate I presume you mean brand new, so you'll have the latest firmware so I'm guessing thats why it won't update....

Chances are shes just retarded lol!

I don't use mine so can't recall her accent, she struggles to understand my Dundonian tone :P

USB works fine on my car matey, it's just the woman's voice that sounds strange.

I got my car late last year and the woman sounds fine to me, maybe theyve changed something i don't know but i would go check it out if i was you.

Is it effecting anything or just sound funny??
