IOS 9.2 and SYNC not working

The latest IOS 9.2 doesn't play well with SYNC. Trying to use USB or Mobile apps to play music will lock up the phone/Ipad. I have reached out to Ford and I am waiting to hear back.

I thought it may need a sync update but appears I am current. On with Ford now.

IOS 9.2 and SYNC not working

It's because Apple has never played well with Microsoft. They refuse to play nice. I used to get so upset with my sync because I'd always have to choose the input every time I'd get in the car. Don't miss that junk one bit

Apparently they are aware of the issue and it's being addressed. Maybe they should have obtained a beta and tested this prior to the release lol

IOS 9.x is terrible anyway. All kinds of compatibility issues with apps on it. I do support for iPads for a large cargo company, and they are telling their pilots not to update to iOS 9 because too many programs break with it. Apple has what they call VPP (Volume Purchase Plan), which is an Apple program for large companies to make custom software for internal use, and their VPP program is partially broken right now too. They expect fixes in 9.3. Anyway, the point is I would not blame Sync for this one. Apple broke lots of things with 9.x

GM is experiencing issues too. Problem is the car companies OR Microsoft need to obtain the beta's and test with the current SYNC systems.

Do you use Pandora? I have to keep setting it back to it. It won't just start up using it, and almost half the time it tells me it can't find Pandora.

I did an update that was supposed to fix that, and it seems it only made it worse.
Before the patch, it would just go back to my USB drive. Now it only does that maybe 70% of the time. The other 30% it goes to Line in which has nothing connected to it.

Its been hit or miss with Pandora thru mobile apps. It worked this AM for a brief period of time and then I received a USB disconnect message. Then when you go to disconnect the phone it's locked up and eventually goes to the white boot screen with the apple logo.

I just use the USB. I used Pandora a couple times, but not enough to notice anything.

I like using Pandora through Sync because you can easily change the stations and rate the songs w/o taking your eyes off the road. I'm a tech head.

Pandora doesn't really work for my commute anyway as there are a few dead zones along the way. No problems with iOS 9.2 on my iPhone 6 that weren't already there before I upgraded the iOS.

Had some connectivity issues with my iPhone but after updating sync it all went away. Even my iPod connects perfectly. No more full indexes for me. Lol

Worked with ford support more yesterday afternoon and they asked that I continue to connect via BT until the next sync update is released in the very near future. I have a friend with a Cadillac who is also experiencing problems after 9.2

I use BT and Google Play Music, when I tire of Sirius, I have had no issues. I pay for the Google service and it is great. I have about 20,000 songs in my library.

Sync works excellent in my wife's 14 Fusion, and zero issues with android.
I'm sure it will just be an update to resolve the apple issue.

When you are connected via mobile apps just press the voice command on the steering wheel and say "station" and the station you want.

I have to be assumed the earliest version of sync on my 2011 3.7 which was purchased in June of 2010 and have never updated anything on the car and have never had an issue with sync on my iPhone's. I'm now using an iPhone 6 with the update 9.2.

I went out and tried that. I have the Galaxy S5. The only app mobile apps can find on my phone is amazon music. I have to manually turn pandora on then it will blue tooth through my system. But SYNC doesn't recognize commands for it.

Thankyou for your reply though.

Pandora mobil apps needs the phone to be BT connected and USB connected with the app running to connect, at least that's how it works with my iPhone 5. I do this since my phone is primary and always connects BT, I hit the voice command after connecting the USB and say "USB", then while running pandora I use voice command "Mobil apps" then "Pandora", this sounds complicated but isn't that bad. Also you can't lock your phone or you'll eventually loose contact and switch to BT only. #applesucks


You know that warm and fuzzy feeling? That means something bad is about to happen...

Android works the same way. Say Mobile apps, and then Pandora, but no USB. Strictly Bluetooth.

From day one my sync has hated my iPod. 80gb of 160gb full, so sync would always tell me on start up that voice command is disable. Now she says nothing and all I can do now is play all. She's been in a pissy mood that last couple of months lol

I always get the warning that voice commands can't be used due to the large amount of music I have.
