From what I recall it used to be that way. Then people complained and and the default state was changed to something static. My 2012 defaults to AUX IN every time.

FordIVTteam Thanks for testing that! It sounds as though your system is working as intended. If the radio is not on when you enter the car, it's not going to search for the media portion of you phone, thus causing you to have to request Bluetooth audio every time. You can use the voice command BLUETOOTH AUDIO instead of using the touchscreen or paddles.

I set it to FM and now it goes to FM when I get in. I did some additional testing, and here's what I found:

If I leave the audio system on when I shut off the car, it will go back to bluetooth audio and start playing.

If I turn off the audio system (using the power button) before I shut off the car, it will go to AM (now FM).

I suppose I can just leave it on when I shut the car off, but I would prefer to be able to turn it off. Since I don't always want to listen to the audio system when I get in the car.

Is there still no way to fix this? Can I do things a bit differently (leave audio on, use voice commands, etc.) to make this less annoying? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I guess. According to the Ford site, I have "Gen2 - V3.6.2" and it says "Your SYNC is up-to-date!"

mp223 Let's be pragmatic here, everybody. Ford ain't gonna update anything to do with Sync. If it doesn't come with the car, you're not getting it. All the Ford reps are doing is just blowing hot air.

Edit: I find it kinda amusing that Ford even has reps on this site, it's like an acknowledgment that most deanships are awful and to get any semblance of reasonable support you have to go to a 3rd party forum, contacting a Ford rep, to ask for help. "Escalating" an issue for a simple warranty fix? Sad.
