Using iPhone to stream music with Ford Sync

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have the new Ford Sync system and my iPhone is synced and the phone works well for calls. But, how do I stream the music? Can I? I have a first gen iPhone running 3.0. Do I need a 3G? This is going to be difficult to troubleshoot because of the third party hardware. In the Ford sync menu for bluetooth devices it says sync the device. But it is already synced since the phone works well. I realize I sound confused...because I am. Again, any help will be appreciated.

My iPhone 4 doesn't like to SYNC music to my Ford

I have a Ford Edge with the SYNC system. My old iPhone 3G worked great with it. My new iPhone 4 works fine for phone calls but wont play music from the phone even when hooked up with the USB cable. When Im doing it by Bluetooth, I can barely here something playing but mostly just low level static.
Anybody else having this prob and/or know what to do?

Iphone 4 os update using Microsoft sync Ford vehicles

I have a second generation Iphone 3G. I also have a Ford vehicle with Microsoft Sync. I up to a couple weeks ago had the option of saying phone, call so and so and after I recently upgraded to the os 4 update on it. I have gotten it to the phone option but it says no entries in phone book. But I do have it full of names and still can call if I say the number but there seems to be some bug that doesnt recognize it. I did call apple care I am only 1 year in to my two year contract and have tried everything in regards to it but apple said they have no knowledge of the problem and I updated my car computer through an update on sync my ride. com. I was wondering if anyone else knows of the problem and or a fix. Thanks for your time.

iPhone 5S and Ford Sync calls are not working correctly

I bought a 2013 Ford Focus with Ford Sync Touch.  It was working fine with my iPhone 5 on iOS 7.  I recently bought an iPhone 5S and everything seems to work fine until I make a phone call.  The call connects but I cannot hear anything but loud crackling.  I have the latest software updates on both the Ford Sync Gen2 3.6.2.  and the latest iOS 7.0.4.  I have reset both the Sync to factory settings and the iPhone to Factory settings.  Still the exact same problem.  Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue could be? 

iPhone 5 and Microsoft Sync Bluetooth in Ford Vehicle

I have an iPhone 5 that I am trying to pair and use with my Microsoft Sync Bluetooth that is built into my Ford vehicle. I am able to connect to my husbands Microsoft Sync (older version) in her Ford, but my iPhone wont work with my Bluetooth in my Ford. I am able to pair with my bluetooth (manually), but am unable to operate the iPhone (like play music) using the controls built into the steering wheel (like I am able to do when using my husbands bluetooth in her Ford). Also my iPhone does not connect automatically to the Bluetooth in the Ford when I get in the car everytime, on rare occassions it does, but for the vast majority of the time it does not, and I have to pair manually (again, my iPhone 5 does connect automatically to my husbands bluetooth when I get into his Ford). The only difference between the 2 Microsoft Sync Bluetooths built into the Fords, is mine is a newer version, while my husbands is a couple years older.


Any troubleshooting suggestions? My iOS software is up to date. Maybe the bluetooth needs an update, though I have not heard of one? I have called the manufacturer, who said it works how its going to work (ha!). Does the issue lie with the bluetooth device in my Ford or with the iPhone?


Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

iPhone 4s Ford Sync bluetooth audio streaming

I got my new iPhone 4s to sync to my Ford Escape and had no problems making calls. I did get it to play music from my iphone playlist through the bluetooth right after I got it all synced up and it all worked fine, until I shut my vehicle off. After that, I could still make calls, but when I gave the command bluetooth audio it would search and search for a device, and then tell me no device was detected. Is anyone else having problems? The only mp3 player I have in my car is my phone, and I didnt have it hooked up to my vehicle with the cord. Thanks!

Text Messaging - iPhone Integration with Ford Sync

It is unfortunate that a technology leader such as the iPhone is missing a significant feature that RIM and Android have, and likely losing market share accordingly.Through the Message Access Profile bluetooth profile, Ford Sync cars (1+ million sold to date) have the ability to read out your text messages via bluetooth, ensuring that the driver isnt distracted. With so many laws banning driver distractions (hand-free requirements, no text messaging initatives), this is a significant safety issue for todays iPhone owners.I have seen many posts for years from users wishing that Apple would get on board with this technology, but so far it hasnt been raised as a viable option to implement.Please reply to this thread if you are one of the 1+ million Ford Sync owners who also own an iPhone and wish this feature was implemented. I luckliy own both a BlackBerry and an iPhone, but not all people do.

New Ford focus and sync issues

I just bought a new ford focus and can play/call via Bluetooth. When i tell the sync system to switch to usb and play all it displays that music is playing but does not output audio. Do i need to connect the aux cable for that or should audio play through the usb connection?

Problems in Ford Vehicle with Sync System

I am curious to know if anyone has had problems with their iPhone 3G in regards to the Microsoft Sync system in their Ford vehicle since doing the 3.0 OS upgrade. I did not start having problems until I installed the upgrade on my phone. Now it automatically shuffles and starts to play the iPod function on the actual phone (not the stereo) every time that I turn on my vehicle. I have to go into the iPod function and pause it to stop but if I have to turn off my car and turn it back on for any reason it does the same thing again. Also now the text messages and emails have gone into silent mode so I no longer know when I receive them unless the inside of the vehicle is silent.
I know that Ford sent me a letter mentioning an upgrade that needs to be installed for the Sync system but this was a month or so before 3.0 OS came out. I have not been able to take my vehicle in to get it done yet but I was wondering if that would solve the problem.
Im just rather frustrated because it is a huge inconvenience. I do not use the bluetooth capability to listen to music because I already have a USB port in my vehicle that I use. Please help if you are familiar with this problem.

Why won't my Iphone 4 stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex Why won't my Iphone 4 stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex

I recently purchased an iphone 4 through Verizon and it will not stay synced with my 2009 Ford Flex.  Ive tried rebooting the sync system with Ford, and have reinstalled the phone numerous times with no luck.


I have to turn off the bluetooth setting on the iphone (everytime I get into the car) and turn it back on, in order for the sync to work.


Does anyone else have this type of problem and is there a solution out there for this?



iOS 5 Bluetooth ford problem

I have a 2011 (UK 11 reg) Ford Mondeo with built in Sony radio with sat nav, Bluetooth and CD.  It has been linking fine to my iPhone 4 via Bluetooth both for phone calls and audio as needed running iOS 4.  However since upgrading to iOS 5 it wont keeps saying it cant establish data connection, audio breaks up then the phone disconnects intermittently, and the radio no longer displays my phone signal strength which I relied up to know I had a signal. 


This is a major pain as I need it to be reliable as it was until recently for work support phone calls.  Can anyone please advise how to resolve this?  Please dont say take it to my Ford dealer, 1) they will likely have no clue 2) why the **** should I when its Apples upgrade which has caused the problem - it was fine before I installed iOS 5.

The error message in iTunes says:

Google iPhone Sync Microsoft Exchange - Sync only works in One Direction

I have setup my iPhone to sync with Google calendar using Microsoft Exchange, which supposes to work bidirectionally.
I found that it only works in one direction such that anything in my Google calendar (includes all the subscribed calendars in Google) got sync to my iPhone. After I add a new event in my Google calendar, it is pushed to my iPhone.
On the other hand, any new event I add to my iPhone calendar is not updated and shown in my Google calendar. This means the sync works only in one direction:
Google Calendar Event --- sync ---> iPhone (works perfectly and the event is pushed almost pushed instantly)
iPhone Calendar Event. --- sync ---> Google Calendar << FAILED >> (Event entered to my iPhone never shows in the Google Calendar)
Sync works unidirectionally but not bidirectionally
Anyone has encounter this problem and is there any solution?

Sync iphone to outlook calendar via PC sync contacts apps etc via Mac

Id like to be able to sync my iPhone to only my outlook calendar via my work PC but maintain my personal contact lists located on my personal use iMac, and remain synced to my yahoo email account (dont need work email access via outlook). Is there an easy way to do this without downloading random software? If I click the box for syncing Calendar in iTunes (via work PC), will it happen for me relatively smoothly ? Im hoping this is not too complicated!!!

new iPhone first sync on PC calender and notepad didn't sync

When I plugged in the iPhone my PC updated iTunes first. Then it performed a sync. I wasnt sure where to look for the calendar but I found programs called Windows Calendar, Contacts and Journal. I found that my iPhone Contacts did sync up but the other two did not. Am I looking in the right places for the data?
I gave up a Palm T/X for this so I am hoping the iPhone exceeds the Palm.
Is it possible to transfer or copy and paste my Palm data into the iPhone data on the PC? The same is true for my Journal and Calendar.

IPhone and iTunes Sync Issues - Song Does Not Sync

I have set up several playlists in iTunes that I have sync with my iPhone. Up until now I have had no issues with syncing. There is one song that I have tried to sync to my Running playlist that continuously has errors. The mp3 plays correctly in iTunes, and when I sync it with my iPhone it all of a sudden has gaps of silence throughout the song. I have tried to rip the song again, I have tried to download the song from the internet (tried several different versions of the same song). I am still having the same issue. I have approximately 1.5 GB of songs on my iPhone and no other song has this issue. Any help in determining what the issue is would be very much appreciated.

iPhone iTunes Sync without USB to Mac Sync

Hey guys,
Is there any way to get the music on my Mac that Ive recently bought on iTunes to my iPhone without syncing my iPhone via USB to my Mac?
Also, when are we gonna see bluetooth syncing? Walk in the room, your mac detects your iPhone via bluetooth and automatically syncs it without you knowing so when you get to work your music is already on there, ready to go, without you doing anything. Ahhh...that would be nice.

Contacts mobileme sync mac issue sync removed contact numbers

I have a iphone 3G and sync it with my mobileme account and back to my osx10.5.4 mac. Problem is that last night the Iphone mysteriously lost all fields of informations for all of my contacts leaving only behind obsecure fields and the notes fields on the iphone.
Upon investigation the mobileme account had all the contact details but somehow they have been removed from the phone... Is there a sync issue ?
I fixed by going into mobileme settings on the mac and resetting all data on the mobileme account. This then after a couple of mins updated the iphone with all the contact information again.
If it wasnt a mobileme issue then my iphone was hacked, anyone had any suspicions/experience with this?

2 macs 1 PC sync fine 3G won't sync and .me apps show nada

Hey folks,
any thoughts?
Two Macs are syncing all my contacts and calendar data between them, even a Vista machine running Outlook 2007 is syncing fine... The Macs have Entourage and even that calendar is being synced correctly...
my 3G? nothin... it just sits there waiting
the .me contacts and calendar webapps? they load, the pages show as completely loaded, only I get the spinning gear display and nothing happens further.
on the calendar .me app, I can adjust preferences but not create a new calendar or calendar group, or show calendar info...
ideas? (Ive done all the usual resets, wipes - thats how I got what is syncing to sync...)

Can iPhone 3G sync to PC using Active Sync alone

I currently have a Motorla Q with Windows Mobile. I sync it with Outlook on my work PC using the USB cable and active sync. I am considering buying an iPhone 3G, but cant seem to find out if I can do the same with it. Can I sync the iPhone 3G with Outlook using a USB connection and only Active Sync? I cannot install iTunes on my work PC.
