    Hi people, Any ideas if thier is a replacement for this crappy thing? Maybe a pioneer unit or somthing??
  2. In Car Entertainment (ICE) and Security
    Does anyone else have this issue. Sync 3 navigation sometimes looses my position. Seems completely random but is happening pretty often. It just goes off the road as if i am driving a few meters off the road but it then stops the nav until it snaps back to the road. Very annoying, especially...

    Can anyone tell me please if sync 1 on a pfl ST2 with the Sony kit has any voice commands for selecting DAB radio and a subsequent station ? I can't find reference to it anywhere, only AM and FM station selection My misses uses the radio a lot when out on her own, but frankly, selecting DAB...

    Hi All, I have a 62 plate MK3 ST-3 and was wondering if someone could confirm if the below is just Ford Sync 1 ? Also are there any upgrades that people have done on these ? I would however like to keep the reversing camera and sat nav, I just find the screen a little too small :( Cheers !

    Hi, anyone that know which parts needed for upgrading to a touch stereo (OEM)? I have a Sony with BT (OEM) ST2/ST3. 8 speakers, no sub. I want the 8" touch screen with or w/o nav. It doesnt matter really. Just need the parts number for all parts needed.
  9. Focus ST Mk3 Non Technical Discussion

  10. Focus ST Mk3 Non Technical Discussion
    Hey guys, So I've had my 2013 Focus ST estate for over a year now and this has bugged me the entire time (it's my only gripe with the car). I have read online that with an iPhone it only shows when connected via the USB slot, however when I connect it that way it appears saying that SYNC does...

    Hey folks, Has anyone upgraded/retrofitted the larger 8" screen/system and fascia to an ST fitted with the old 4"? Desperate to get Android Auto and a touchscreen on my car, but all I've seen are some third party options, which I'm not so sure about, would like to go "legit" if possible. Open...
  12. Mk3 Lighting & Electrical
    Hi folks, I'm new to this forum I've currently got a fiesta mk7 but will soon be getting a new st focus, the only thing that's holding me back is I've heard that sync 3 is coming soon but don't know when anyone heard anything? I've heard it's available on the s max but that's about it

    Saw this whilst perusing - it looks like a left-hooker ST based on gauges on dash and layout, but could be wrong. I was under the impression the Focus ST wasn't getting SYNC3...? it could also just be a big photoshop, but seems fairly legit. Best part is being able to see the mid-dial screen...
  14. Mk3 Miscellaneous

    Hi, my friend, she has a ST1 mk3 facelift with the smaller stereo. She doesnt have bluetooth in this unit but wants it. If you get an upgraded stereo, like Sony Sync, is it just plug and play or do you need to activate it in some electronics module? An aftermarket stereo is NOT an option

    change of topic title as the one posted earlier today disappeared............ Was just to say that pulling Fuse 67 to reset Sync is becoming a monthly occurrence, just doesn't seem to like my iPod, hangs when indexing. Anyone else having fun with it?
  19. In Car Entertainment (ICE) and Security
    Now I have had my ST for a few weeks and have been experimenting with Ford Sync quite a bit I have a couple of issues that I am wondering if anyone else is having. First off I have an iphone 5 that I am connecting over Bluetooth. I can get the audio working fine and it sounds good but it...
