  1. Focus Sync 2 APIM connector

    Hi all, just got my wife a mk3 focus with sync2 installed. Got everything she wanted except the reverse camera. I know hot to retro fit a camera as I did the install on my 2017 Kuga, but what I not sure is if and where I can get any mating connectors to fit into the APIM connection block. Anyone able to help?

  2. Sync3 sat nav with carplay

    From what I've found yes, but you can still have your iPhone connected via Bluetooth for calls etc... The other annoying thing with it all, and a few friends with Sync 3 also find this on their iPhones is the ringer volume always goes to high every time you connect via Bluetooth Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Reverse Camera

    Not sure on the front camera this method, but there are 3rd party units for multiple feeds Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sync3 sat nav with carplay

    Yep, CarPlay does overright the Sync3 functions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Reverse Camera

    The Sync 2 and 3 are the same pin outs, so most of the Sync 2 details online work. I have made an extension loom from a plug from a smashed up focus st with sync2 and a loom I brought from the US to allow after market installs. Family member picked it up for $15. From pins 14 & 15 I have broken out to a RCA connector for use with a camera. The loom has been installed and a RCA extension has been ran to rear of the Kuga. I need to get my laptop out to enable reverse camera and pick a camera to install Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 2017 Ford Kuga

    Having enquired about remaps for the Kuga 1.5 tdci, it would appear no one has done any work on them yet, but managed to get a discounted rate on a bluefin unit to test the Focus 1.5 tdci mapping works on mine. Received it during the week and installed it yesterday, and it decently makes a different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Towbar electrics

    Hi all, looking at fitting a towbar to my Kuga, but just need some confirmation for parts. I know i need wiring kit 2014049 And I guess the tow module 2033503, but is it needed just for a simple 12N connected trailer still? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. 2017 Ford Kuga

    First job was to keep the floor clean so along with the included floor mats I also managed to get the dealership to include a boot liner saving me another £50 Next was to make better use of the SYNC 3 stereo and CarPlay. Having got fed up with my iPhone rolling around I managed to get hold of a Brodit active holder cheap off eBay and a Cmax vehicle bracket (same as the Kuga) Then ran a lighting cable under the console trim back to the 2 USB ports in the armrest Got a little tidy up job but will sort out after I get the shutter covering the cup holders replacement Monday as it has a couple of issues rolling back.

  11. Reverse Camera

    Hi all, got my new Kuga, but as I wanted quick, I took advantage of a pre build car which a local dealership had within group. With this there was 1 option I couldn't get, which was reverse camera (ideal when reversing up to my scout groups trailer) so looking into a retro fit. As I want to make it at least look at stock as possible, could I ask anyone who has a Mk2 (or even a Mk2.5) to do me a pic of the camera location on the tailgate. I have managed to get a harness to make up a loom which I can solder to (make from a car stereo loom & after market to ISO loom) from a focus at the scrappy (after it was wrapped round a lamp post) Will update my progress but would like all the pieces first.
