  1. That's the Ford/Denso satnav that came with the pre-Facelift S-Maxes. The handsfree was a stand-alone option, and very basic (with phone specific cradles that are no longer available for current phones). There are no more map updates (but then I think Croatia was never covered anyway), and if things go wrong they go expensive quickly (as in similar to what you paid for the car) again. A/C controls are integrated, so to replace this you have to change the centrestack bezel and get the standalone A/C control. I would try to find a facelift S-Max, or one without the touchscreen system, where it is easier to replace with an aftermarket radio / satnav if necessary.
  2. Well it does say PLEASE NOTE:Please turn off the "hold" key at the back of the CD before powering it on. The Bluetooth function of the Bluetooth CD player only supports most Bluetooth headsets and Bluetooth speakers, but does not support connecting to your smartphone or Car Bluetooth. in the description, and does not list the supported Bluetooth profiles. My guess is audio works, and controls don't.
  3. (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.
  4. The APIM hardware is different, no sure about the displays, I thought Ford also switched to capacitive (vs. resistive) touchscreens with Sync 3.
  5. 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).
  6. 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).
  7. 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.
  8. Do you have a voice / bluetooth module in the car that's not responding?
  9. Did you try different leads?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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).
  13. That your column stalk does not have the voice button is a good indication does your car does not have the bluetooth module fitted.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
