  1. (the phone doesn't have a headphone jack so I will have to use bluetooth) or use an adaptor, one of which possibly came with the phone.

    Ford Mustang Sync 3 Upgrade

    The APIM hardware is different, no sure about the displays, I thought Ford also switched to capacitive (vs. resistive) touchscreens with Sync 3.

    Stereo upgrade help!

    The satnav (incl. the TMC receiver) is in the display, so you'll need to route the antenna signal through the display to the radio (or forgo TMC).

    Upgrading the centre console

    That link is for adding EU navigation for an existing Sync 3 system (targetted at imports), nothing with DAB for a 2010 S-Max at all. 2010 (which one exactly) is the old (first) S-Max, and could be either pre or post facelift (which happened mid 2010). If you want to stay OEM, it has to be one of the Ford system of a similar year, which leaves the Sony DAB unit, or the external DAB box for the Touchscreen satnav (if that's what you currently have).

    help required sat nav unit

    Can you post the part number of your old screen? Part numbers are different for a reason, and there is a system to them. The last digit of the suffix describes the version, so you should be OK with a newer (higher - e.g. -AD ilo. -AC), and you could be OK with an older one, potentially requiring a software update.

    Phone and Aux Connections

    Do you have a voice / bluetooth module in the car that's not responding?

    SYNC 3 and CarPlay

    Did you try different leads?

    ford gps aerial

    It goes to the GPS, which is mounted on top of the glovebox. You can drop it down by releasing the trapdoor on the "ceiling" of the glovebox. That's what you'd need to do also to replace the map DVD.
  9. The buttons and their functions are controlled by the the display (which also contains the satnav), updating Sync won't make a difference. This is based on the Sync 1.1 part, which came with the 5" non-touch display for navigation.

    Upgrade standard 2008 Mondeo Mk4 radio/cd unit

    You'd also need the A/C ECU (which is mounted below the satnav. But looking at how old the satnav (and its maps) are I'd rather look for something aftermarket (with integrated Bluetooth, USB ...). If the bottom picture is parts you already have, just also post the sideview. You'd also need to a GPS antenna, a micro (the satnav has integrated voice control), and reprogram the cluster display (if you have the one with the TFT).

    No Bluetooth on 2010 focus DAB radio 😢

    That your column stalk does not have the voice button is a good indication does your car does not have the bluetooth module fitted.

    SYNC 3 and CarPlay

    As Carplay is running on the phone, are you sure the headphone is locking up, and not the phone? If you disconnect the phone, does Sync work normally? Then the issue is with the phone. With carplay Sync (resp. any Carplay enabled headunit) everything runs on the iPhone, the headunit only receives a video stream, and transmits the touchscreen pperation.

    Newbie asking for advice re AUX input

    Have you tried swapping the lead? If you connect your current lead when it's not connected to the vehicle, does the sound change (no output on the device)? If you can get to the socket yourself (I don't know how it is installed in your year of Fiesta, from the front with clips that can be released, or on a panel that can be removed to get to the socket from behind) you can check if the connector from vehicle wiring to socket is properly engaged. Anything else I'd take to a shop.

    Newbie asking for advice re AUX input

    If the sound is still coming from your device the device does not recognize the connector, which is either an issue with your device or the lead. Do headphones work when connected to that device (which would point to a lead issue. If everything (incl. this lead) work connected to something else, something is wrong with the wiring between socket and radio (a short somewhere I'd say).

    Help/advice needed

    You should have an AUX socket in your glovebox to connect from the headphone output on your phone (3.5mm plug on both ends of the lead). Google "2009 focus aux input location" for pictures if you can't find yours.
