Sync has probably the lowest BOM cost of all the bluetooth modules by the various manufacturers. It's around $20 in parts and it shows.
My streaming is instant, however, sometimes Sync does not like to connect to my Android 2.2 system. It is just unreliable enough to be annoying.

- Incompetence

Personally I suspect a bit of all three. SYNC and the radio controls have significant, glaring problems in my opinion. Also, I too miss having a pause button.
We don't have a pause button anymore, either...

Thanks for removing our programmable Favorites buttons, Ford!

I enjoy the pause option, but the fact that it is not a single button is annoying, not to metion, if I pause the radio to make a call, then when I end the call, I lose the "saved" portion of the song.

My Ford Upgrade Request

So, I have three small annoyances with my MyFord radio and I will explain them below:

First, why do we need to see the Sirius/FM logos all the time? All it does is take up valuable screen real estate. I am tired of having to scroll through the info button to find the name of a song. The display already says SAT>SAT1 at the top, that should be good enough.

Secondly, why does the 'OK" button just bring up the preset radio stations? I think it should be reprogrammed to bring up the info button, as why do we need 5 buttons to bring up the same menu on the steerig wheel, yet not a single steering wheel button to bring up the info screen.

Lastly, why is there no direct "Pause" button? Look at this photo below, there is always an unused button, I done know why they cant just add a pause short cut to the button mapping.



These seem like very simple programming changes, no physical button changes, not sure why it cant be part of a future update.
