    TPMS Sensors not detected

    depends if you have TPMS which actually tells you the value of the pressure (in which case you have special type valves) Not that i can tell the difference, or the more simple TPMS which just shows a light and uses ABS to measure rotational difference of all 3 tyres. So either your missing the tyre valves OR something much more sinister. Either way if there was anything to detect if should have done within 12 miles. Either it's specific button in the car you hold down to reset the warning OR its under Driver Assistance in your Trip Computer EDIT: Just grabbed this from the Fiesta Owners Manual: Note: Each road wheel and tire is fitted with a tire pressure sensor located inside the wheel and tire assembly cavity. The pressure sensor attaches to the valve stem. The tire covers the pressure sensor and it is not visible unless the tire is removed. Take care when changing the tire to avoid damaging the sensor Looks like the sensor could be damaged or missing

    Sync 3 and Andriod Auto

    Thanks for the reply Gillyallan
  3. Use of Google Assistant (Hey Google) comprises of me having to select the Bluetooth as a audio source to hear prompts and replies. Which kinda shuts up the radio portion. I expected it to use the phone Bluetooth connection cutting the audio and resuming once finished Has anyone managed to get it set up so it cuts in as and when it should (like a phone call) while still using the radio

    Weird Vent Smell

    Have you tried running the vents on highest heat. May kill bacteria or whatever is causing the smell
  5. All those who use Android Auto with Sync 3 can you get Google Assistant to read out your SMS messages??? . All I get in response is "There are no new messages I can read" They come through on the Sync 3 just fine with the SMS popping up on screen. Cortana on Windows phone can manage this for goodness sake

  7. Apologies 19.99 was the 3 device 1 year offer which isn't available now. Your looking at approx £40 for a 2yr 3 device license
  8. Use the same as you brought a 2yr license 19.99 was the top AV product for a good few years Bitdefender is top this year (PC Pro Magazine) due its new autopilot mode

    Ford GPS V Tom Tom GPS

    My Sync 3 tends to route you through housing estates rather than sticking to the main roads. Just one example i can recall below (not a housing estate but point still stands) See example The Orange route is the route the Sat Nav wanted you to take (through a 20Mph road) were as i stuck to the A road (in green) on this occasion (as any sensible person and indeed my TomTom did)

    Maps update

    Traffic works on its own for me. Picks up from the Radio Traffic Announcements. Not prefect. Have had Nav tell me its re-routing due to traffic
  14. Waze is a very good navigation app it seems (can't use it myself) So news that Waze can be used using AppLink on Sync 3 will be welcome rather than the odd routing of Ford Nav https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/26/ford-adds-waze-to-its-sync-3-applink-for-ios-users/
