  1. Hi all Just had my 2015 Mondeo Titanium X in for a service yesterday and Ford said there was a safety recall for it on the desulphurisation thingy, but when I checked it on my ETIS login there was no recall listed. Also there was a number of software updates on numerous modules so Ford updated them, but on my ETIS there was more than what Ford dealer had. Can anyone shed any light on this, why is there two different ETIS information reading for the same car? I can see in the Summary tab of the Software page in ETIS what was updated by Ford.
  2. Hiya, turns out that this version of Ford Focus Sync 3 doesn't (happy to be corrected) have a GPS in it, so the Sat Nav option isn't available.
  3. Hi all, I am hoping someone can help m. I have a 65 plate Ford Mondeo Titanium X and it has BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) I was led to believe that Ford cars with BLIS in them has the Cross traffic Alert system, but I do not see any option to enable/disable it in my instrument cluster. My other half has a 2017 Ford Focus and there is an option to enable/disable Cross Traffic Alerts, but I don't see it in my car. I know I saw Cross-Traffic Alerts pop up once when I bought the car, but after that I never seen it since, mainly because I reverse into parking spots, but now with an infant on board, I drive into parking spots so having Cross-Traffic alerts would be useful when reversing out but I never seem to be able to get them to work. The orange lights pop up when i am driving in my wing mirrors so I know BLIS is working. Has anyone else seen anything like this? Was Cross-Traffic Alerts always part of BLIS or was it added in at a late point? Is there a software update that an be applied to my Instrument Cluster? Yours hoping!
  4. Thanks guys for helping me, learn something new everyday!!!
  5. Did some digging, thank you to Avi... seems like there was an option with and without navigation on the Focus. Looks like Android Auto is included so thats fine. Admin can you mark this as closed?
  6. Hi Avi. I dont have the VIN but i checked anoter Focus that was on Autotrader and it doesnt have sat nav as part of the Sync 3. I remember reading last year that some Focus cars didnt have a sat nav option as part of Sync 3 (which is stupid). Screenshot below of the Sync 3 of the car on Autotrader.
  7. Hi Gilly, Yes i meant to add in that it will be using Android Auto and using Waze (preferred) or Google Maps. Cheers, hopefully someone will know for definite and let me know! 🙂
  8. Hi all, My other half is looking at getting a 2017 Ford Focus Titanium x with Sync 3. We have it reserved in the garage but it is well over 2hrs drive away from us. The car doesn't have the sat nav option, but she does want to use Waze on her phone instead and connect it to Sync 3. My question is can you use Waze on a Ford Focus Sync 3 (once it is updated to version 3.0) if it doesnt have a sat nav/GPS? I have a Mondeo with Sync 3 and mainly use Waze cos its great. Thanks all! 🙂
  9. Hi all. I got the Alexa APK on my Android phone from the USA and installed Alexa on my Sync 3 in my 65 plate Mondeo. So far so good, but cannot be used with Android Auto. Not sure if I can post the link here... But here goes. Ford+Alexa.
  10. I used a Verbatim USB stick. It was the only one that worked for me. Having said that, I have not updated the maps yet, but my Sync version is 3.0 build:18025
  11. Hi Dee Yes it really sucked, had to get both of them replaced... I do a lot of miles for work and didn't want to be stranded one day.
  12. I haven't tried CarPlay yet, might do that on the way home.
  13. One thing I have noticed on Sync 3 version 3 with Waze and google maps is that the turn directions do not show up on the mini display between the speedo and rev counter. It only shows the compass. When using the native Sat Nav the directions show up, was kinda hoping that Waze/Google Maps would do the same.
  14. Have you noticed roads around you that weren't on it, look to be on it now? @gillyallan did you update the maps to F7?
  15. @avi did you use the update from the other thread to update the Sync 3 to F7?
