I have a 2013 Focus and if I don't have the BT button selected on my sync Waze doesn't play through my car speakers. If I'm listening to Pandora it works fine, but that's because I have the BT button selected. Seems like you have to literally select the BT button for anything BT to work. Tried a few different things like another USB BT device, different BT apps, but never got it to work. Seems like the car won't play anything from you phone through BT unless you have the BT button selected. But the weird part is txt msgs and phone calls work.

ChestRockwell Anyone having issues with sirius sat reception in certain areas after performing update?. I drive the same route twice a day for 45 min and in the same spot everyday the reception goes out. It never used to before the update.

sanford12 I had my window switches glitch out. Unhooked the battery for 5-10 minutes and that cured it. Sometimes a hard reboot will do the trick.

Hi stang7043,

Usually issues with the backup camera aren't directly related to MyFord Touch. Have you tried contacting the FordService team about this? If not, I suggest shooting them a private message with your VIN, mileage, best contact phone number, and the details. Here's the link to their profile:

drag-t Performed an update last night. So far things seem to be working fine. Phone connects quicker via the bluetooth and my Ipod is recognized by SYNC. Voice commands appear to be working as well...

Although the update seemed to work ok, knowing when the update is complete is a little vague. I did notice that the screen would change from "Install Complete" to "Phone" and then to "Sync Media" and then finally the last "Install Complete" message. It would have been nice to see just one "Install Complete" message at the end of the update.

I know many people here still have issues even after the update. Just wondering if they are not waiting long enough for the entire update to complete ?

Anyway... we'll see how it holds up.
