  1. I was have a bit of a search to see if there was any good apps that work with Sync3. On the For US site the is an Amazon Alexa App called Ford+Alexa. Unfortunately this is not available in the UK I did however find the APK file and installed this on my phone. To my surprise it worked. I know have Alexa in my car. I can play Amazon music with voice control, Ask the weather and it if you ask her for a destination it links straight to the Sat Nav. I haven't tried controlling anything of my smart devices yet. Very Surprised it worked.
  2. Have you seen the spec and pricing of the new ones!!!! Titanium is now only front wheel drive and 150bhp. To get AWD you have to go with a sport coming in at 42K before you add any option. This also pushes it into the stupid road tax bracket.
  3. I had no problem upgrading to version 3, but I had exactly the same issue with the map update. To get around it I downloaded the files from this forum. The maps are now F7 and have and I have seen a couple of new local roads appear.
  4. Contact ford regarding the download hanging and timing out. It now appears to have been fixed. It might just be a coincidence but I have been able to download the updated
  5. Just tried mine. Titanium with sync3. Relocked at exactly 45 seconds.
  6. This happened to me this morning. Checked at lunch time and it fixed itself. On a slightly different note is the clock meant update for Best

    VIN Number

    Thanks Jim, Your a star. At least I know the car is real. It just the waiting game now. It's only been a couple of weeks for me, God knows how you feel after month's. Thanks again JP
  8. Hi, I wonder if any of you guys can help. I ordered a couple of day after xmas and was told the car was in the uk. The dealer gave the date W/E 14/1. When I rang on Saturday I was told that this has been pushed back to W/E 21/1. After pushing them they eventually gave me the VIN. When I check this appears to be only the last 11 digits, so I cannot track myself. I was wondering are the first 6 digits common and if so would someone be kind enough to share this missing numbers with me. Thanks JP
  9. Well order my new edge today. Titanium in magnetic. It's in UK stock so should get it early new year. I did panic a bit after reading on the forum that some are fitted with Sync 2 or Sync 3. The ford website also makes it very confusing. Check with the garage and they confirmed it was Sync 3
