SYNC System Thread

This is a sticky thread for the Ford SYNC system. I've read some threads that people were having separate issues with SYNC from the MFT System. This thread is designed for people to discuss the SYNC Sytem and discuss issues and solutions with the SYNC System. Let's keep this clean.

For you information:

Enjoy.

Go online and setup your SYNC system . I've set mine up for home, work, friends addresses, etc.. the SYNC navigation works much better. I also have the iPhone application for on the fly inputs.

I have Sync. The 203a package with the SE.
I cannot get the device to understand my voice. It responds with other 'ideas.. (I didn't try too hard though, once or twice with a few commands..)
So I just gave up. I do not even own a cellphone anyway.
(sooner or later i will have to get one,...)
So my not getting along with Sync does not bother me, though i guess it would be better to have it work.
I am a Luddite I guess...

That's strange. My SYNC system works great, phone or USB, recognizing my instructions flawlessly, even with hard to pronounce names on the cell. No MFT for me though.

I have the sync without mft and it is very retarted. It knows my voice and sometimes it does'nt. It will continuously ask over and over and over well u get the jest the same question CALL SALLY CALL SALLY CALL SALLY. CALL SALLYS CELL CALL SALLYS CELL. One time it actually called Sally now it just sucks air.

Start simple, say something like " I'm hungry " to see what it does.

Also, it really wants things in a specific format, so make sure you're following that. At first make sure you have it set for default so she prompts you for the next step, then you can start with "Destination", then she'll ask follow-up multiple choice questions for next steps.

It is a learned system so over time it will pick up on your specific voice patterns so then both you and SYNC will be more compatible.

My sync does not understand me neither. I find it very funny because my accent is from Detroit. Born and raised.
