    Sync 3 and Andriod Auto

    I didn't use hey Google I just held the car voice button down. Note you do need to hold it down until you're finished talking unlike the sync commands where you press and let go. However the fundamental problem with AA for me was I was unable to answer a call or hang up without physically touching my phone which defeats the purpose and makes it illegal.

    SYNC 3 F7 Maps

    Don't like that site much. Log in with fb or YouTube to gain access. When u click yt it says it gives that site control over my yt account... Erm no thanks.

    Maps again - customer service

    Beginning to hate on Ford over this lack of official map updates on sync 3. You contact via email to Ford UK and they say best to ask your dealer. Ask your dealer and they just say they don't know. Why offer a service and not follow it up. I'm fairly certain it said yearly updates on maps but I could be wrong. My car is 1 year 3 months but never had a map update. Instead they advertise partnering with waze, which so far is ios only via applink.

    Ford pass 2?

    Wish traffic would stay enabled on my app. Keep having to go in and enabling it each time.

    Valet mode?

    You'd be surprised who is watching and if stolen there'll be no claim as fob left inside. I'll go with the unlock then open door and put back in house. Not sure why I didn't think of that before asking. Doh!

    Valet mode?

    Probably but I open doors to clean the sills and particularly the boot lower part. Usually have music on also...but yeah it is an option

    Valet mode?

    When I'm washing car myself I'm always a little concerned over leaving fob in the car. As otherwise my doors constantly lock and unlock as I brush against handles, the downside being someone nicking car if I happen to go get something etc. However I'm now wondering if there would be some safer option within valet mode. Is there something in there to majorly limit car? Ie. Not allowed to start.

    Car production

    Something I've often wondered. When you see cars being built in production plant and then rolling off the end. When do they do the time consuming things like bleed the brakes and coolant. Adjust handbrake and other little but important things like that?

    sd sat nav card

    Is v7 more up to date than the poor factory offering on sync 3? I think it's poor from such a large company.
