  1. There's a 2.8GB update available for download on the Ford site to my computer, transfer to USB drive and then into the car. The dealer can apply the same update to the Sync 3 software. I'm told this is a fix-all update which affects 140 different aspects of the software. You can tell if your car is eligible by entering your VIN on the Ford site. Mine is but I've a nagging reluctance to have it - will my car still go afterward? Has anyone any experience of this update? Many thanks.
  2. Hi Today my car got its first 12500 miles service. I asked them if they could do a software update as well and they said no problem. But when I collected my car they said there is no newer software available for my car. I have checked on Ford Etis website and there are few software upgrades available for my car. So, did I get a lazy mechanic to service my car or is Etis wrong ?? I have ROM version 1304 installed on my car at the moment. See attached screenshot.
  3. Hi All, I'm not entirely sure where to start with this - so I'll start at my problem. I've got a 2010 Mondeo with Voice control, BT and USB module installed (I'm not sure what software version - another issue again). iPod works well enough, as does USB - but A2DP BT Streaming seems glitchy at best. I stream from a phone and the audio seems very choppy, like an async sample converter is out. First question: Could there be a software update available for this or the radio unit? If so, can I be pointed in the place to start looking for them? (All the related software updates I see point to but it seems the software updates are no longer a supported item?) As it happens, I have a number of tools required to reverse engineer CAN busses, and some of the OBD2 lines (I know my Mondeo has at least a 500k CAN Bus over OBD2, and may have another on the proprietary pins). Second question: Does there exist a database which contains the decoded CAN ID's? At the same time, is there a pinout of the VC+BT+USB module? (If it's all the same, I'd like to save some time if possible And I can't find it for the life of me.) I can't see the factory module transmitting audio over CAN, so I'm assuming there's some audio lines, probably at least 4 combinations of +/- audio. All assumptions are that the infotainment system uses CAN to transmit data. This is all intended to be used in a personal project in my down time... And it would seem like a suitable challenge to develop a replacement module to fix the issues I'm currently having with it, and implement my own bonus features. :D
  4. I have the '61 plate Mk 3 Focus 1.6 Ecoboost 150PS (petrol) and I love it, but of course the mpg isn't exactly impressive as has been well documented. It's only got about 17K on it so hopefully it will improve, but I just wanted to let people know that it's just gained a couple of mpg apparently by updating the engine software. The Ford garage where I bought it recently offered me a free software upgrade (because they changed their name to Trust Ford), so I had it done with the result that my average mpg has risen from 34 to 36 (or from 36 to 38 if you believe the trip computer over maths). Not headline news but better than nothing! No idea what the update did, the bloke I dealt with didn't have a clue. That mpg is with mixed driving by the way, town & motorway, heavy & light-footed. Anyway just thought that might help some people.
  5. I followed the manual instructions exactly, and I read all the posts on troubleshooting the software update, with no success. I put only the two english files in the root directory of the USB device, but it keeps saying "no files on device", and when turning the key on nothing happens. Tried disconnecting and connecting again, nothing. Suggestions? I'm not sure I need the update but thought it might solve another problem I have with the "store name" command (I opened a different post) Thanks.
