    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.
  4. 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.

    Sat nav help

    Did you try re-inserting the SD card?

    Fiesta titanium radio functions not working

    It's broken, disconnected, or in need of a reset. Does the radio still show any of the Bluetooth options?

    ford radio sat nav 2009 pinouts

    The pin out is generic, there is no sub-out on the Ford Blaupunkt (Travelpilot EX/FX/NX?)

    Ford Focus Cmax 5000c radio specifications

    I'm not aware of any car stereo with dedicated tweeter connections (s. bi-amping). Speaker sets (woofer/tweeter) come with a cross-over, which connects to one connection (+/-) on the radio. Alternatively, both speakers are connected in parallel, with their electrical and acoustical characteristics providing the cross-over functionality (albeit with less control / tuning possibilities). If I remember correctly, the 5000/6000s were rated at 15 or 20W per channel, and the Sony at 25W.

    Sync 3 v3.0 and Waze on iOS

    If you're talking Apple Carplay, the updates needs to be from Apple (to the Iphone).
