What neat tricks and tips have you've found since owning?
 
Just wondering what features, tips and tricks people have found since owning?

For me I found the hidden menu to be neat. Holding trip/reset down while starting car shows the menu. Holding again for 5 seconds returns you to normal operation.

Salesman didn't know that the SE has a line in for mp3 players. Inside glovebox on top.

When going from Sport mode (S) to drive (D), you don't have to pull the trigger and move the shifter. You can simply move it up into D and it'll lock into place. Love that!

I found out about the glovebox mounted mp3 line on here after salesman told me it didnt have one. #FAIL

I found a key in the IA remote. My salesperson never told me anything about a key. I found this out just by going thru the Owner's Guide...

I found that every window, when controlled from the driver's side, has one-touch up and down.

1. The rear wiper wipes once if the wipers are on and the car is put into reverse.
Of course I then found the button to turn the rear on at the tip of the wiper joystick on a later day when it wasn't raining.
2. I recommend plugging in or out USBs SDs and Aux when the car is off. Hot swaps make the MFT freak out (still on 2.10)
3. Again for raining days (every evening in FL in the summer) If the IA doesn't unlock right away. Wipe off some of the wetness and hold your hand slightly longer inside the handle.

Sync commands:

"Climate Control, 'I am hot'" The Air conditioner goes on and 'I am cold' the heat goes on.

"Navigation, 'I am hungry'" It lists the restaurants in your current area on the map.

Just be sure to pronounce "hungry" very well. If it sounds anything like "horny", you and your Focus will never have the same relationship again.
