Any '08 Focus owners with SYNC...You like?

Just curious...Iabsolutly LOVE sync. I have my phone programed in and have a bunch of songs on my memory stick. I don't have an iPod yet, but I'm getting one! What surprises me is how easy to use the technology really is!
Other opinions???

Checked out Sync a couple weeks ago. It was a nice system to use. Hands free phone and music too. I might get an 08 just for the Sync.

I just picked up my 08 Focus SES last night. It's a beautiful car. What I hate though, is that the steering wheel appears to block the upper portion of the instrument cluster and it's hard to see the turn signal indicators. I adjusted the steering wheel and it seems to clear the obstruction, but barely. I'm not that tall...I'm about 5' 9".

As for sync...have not had a chance to program it yet. I do love the stock radio, though. No need for sirius...the stock radio is crystal clear and there's the artist information and song name that is displayed in the lcd. You can also select various types of music genres just like the sirius satellite system. The only thing you don't get is the zillion amount of radio stations...but who cares nowadays when u have ipod, etc.

oh yea, I love the usb port in the car! Now we can charge our phones, ipods, GPS, etc. Very convenient and efficient item!

Btw, i seem to get a very low hum when the car is idling. Do you get this too? That doesn't bother me, but my F150 never had this.

A pic of my car...sorry the front is dark cuz of the shadow:

If you can post it on another site, you can always attach it with Vb code. IE, copy the web address and;

[img]web address[/img]

the image will pop right up in the field.

I don't have sync in mine but it seems like a pretty cool system. I don't really use the sirius radio at all (I think the version in the car is just a sample)
Also I don't hear a humming in mine when it idols mines a 5 speed don't know if that would make a difference or not.

No humming noise in my 5spd either. Sync is real nice, I don't know all the commands so I start yelling everything I can think of at it to change it. Where is the Mic for the input anyhow? I was looking and can't find it.
