Ford Sync Update: About time...

So you know when you get in your car and sync will default to Sync Line-In when you were connected to your Bluetooth/iPhone listening to Pandora or music last? Then you need to tell Sync Bluetooth or or select the option manually every time you get in your car.

Well Ford finally released an update that will default to Bluetooth and start playing whatever you had set last.

I have a 2014 GT/CS and this was such a pain in the butt. I've been checking every couple of months for Sync updates and Ford finally released an update a few weeks ago because all I found were forums complaining about this.

Just thought I should let everyone know.

I updated my Sync yesterday and it is SOO much better.
It also displays song/artist titles on the display now. Mine previously did not do that (I think mine was dated version).

Yeaaaaaahhhhh... about that.....

That functionality doesn't work for me.

I updated my Sync about a month ago and all went well. I could now see the song artist and name when streaming blue tooth.

However, that really wasn't a plus for me because I always used the "Mobile Apps" functionality which would show you all that information and then some.

However, something changed... I'm assuming on my phone.. and now my mobile apps functionality no longer works.

So... I stared using the bluetooth stream and it no longer display the artist name or song... AND I have to switch it from "line in" to bluetooth every time I get in the car.

Any one have any suggestions/advice?

I've poked around on my phone (Samsung S5) and can't find any settings to correct the situation... my only guess is my phone downloaded an update to some service which broke everything.

Bluetooth now defaults and it displays the artist name/song.
Update your Sync and you should be good. They released a new version at the end of May.

I'm on v4.4 with my Mustang and F-150 and it often randomly goes to line in, when I previously was listening to my USB flash drive. Though the update did allow me to view, listen or reply to text messages from my phone via Sync.

What kind of phone do you have? Ford told me I could listen to but not reply or send new voice messages with my iphone.

Samsung Alpha

Samsung Galaxy Alpha cell phone from AT&T

Very similar to an iPhone 6, but with my preferred phone OS and in my preferred size (not too big).

you'll need the ADS MUS1 dash kit, Maestro RR, and a compatible headunit (most Kenwood units are compatible) visit the ADS site to verify. I absolutely love the system

I finally got my "mobile apps" functionality working again. The fix is to pull fuse number 3. I posted instructions on my blog.

Well, that only lasted for two days... now it's back to not working again. I guess I'll have to pull the fuse again.
