OH, SARCASM!

I'm glad you think you're accomplishing something. Never lose that hope, kenberry. Never.

As for the people that always talk about places to put their phones...where do you keep it when you're outside of your car? I'd assume your pocket. Now: Why do you take it *out* of your pocket? As far as phone calls go the MyFord Touch system handles them all perfectly. For anything else, you shouldn't be doing it while driving anyway. If I rode in your car when you started doing something with your phone I'd throw it out the window and possibly smack you across your face.
The fuse puller that comes with the focus is located in the cover of the main fuse box in the engine compartment. Here is a pic:

I only text at stop lights...?

It's annoying, though because I have to look up after I Swype every word for fear of a green light. Sometimes I get mad when I make lights because I want to reply to a text.

You're right, I should have taken the time to go line by line and point out all of the issues, such as the absurdity of leaving a phone in your pocket when it's plugged in to charge the battery, but that would have required more effort than it's worth.

I rode in the passenger seat for the first time since I got the car, and I am glad that there is an "Oh Shiit" handle for the passenger.

Funny enough, in the Toronto area this has become the murder method du jour - It's been done 3 times in the last year alone. If I recall, one was a husband who got sick of his wife and booted her out of the car in front of a big rig while going 80 mph, one was a mob hit and there was another that I don't exactly remember the details of.

I have found out that I can link my itouch to SYNC using bluetooth so I can just used the controls on my ipod. No cords at all. This kinda allows you to use your ipod as a remote for playing music if your tailgating or using your car stereo for any thype of gathering.

So much better than using SYNC's shitty layout. I hate that so much!! txting wont get ppl in accidents that stupid menu layout will. give me a freaking scroll feature with more than one song showing on the screen. should have had Mac program SYNC instead of Microsoft

hell.. the 401 can be dangerous on a good day, nevermind trying to drive downtown! then again it's harder to kill someone in stop-and-go traffic.
