This morning I discovered my voice command stopped working. This is the sequence of events (I tried at least 3-4 times) -> Pushed the button on the steering wheel -> radio station on the screen started flashing -> no voice prompt asking me to say a command -> screen flash stopped and everything seemed fine.

Everything else seems to work fine as long as I don't use voice command. I tried turning off the engine and back on, it didn't fix it. I tried adjusting the voice command volume, it didn't fix it. What else am I missing? Plz help.

Not that we are aware of, why would you want to use the analog jack?

I use the delayed reboot when this happens.

I finally gave in and did a master reset. Although I had to re-program everything, at least I got my voice command back.

Hey gang,

This whole Sync thing is driving me nuts. It's never worked properly for me and now it's refusing to work at all.

Here's what's going on: Whenever I connect my iPhone, iPod, or Flash drive to the USB port and then select "USB" from the Source menu, the screen displays "Initializing" for two or three minutes before reporting "Unsupported device." This only started a couple of days ago; before that, it would display "Indexing" for literally hours. I had to use the "start playing before you connect" workaround to get any music at all. Now, that doesn't work either.

In addition, Bluetooth doesn't work correctly. Although Sync connects to my phone and I can make and receive calls via Bluetooth, whenever I try to play music, I get "Connecting..." for five minutes before "No Bluetooth Device".

I've reset to Factory Defaults and performed a Master Reset with no joy. The phone connects to the phone system but I am utterly unable to get it to work via USB or Bluetooth.

My particulars: 2012 Ford Focus SEL with Sync but not MyFord Touch; iPhone 4S with iOS 5, iPhone 3GS with iOS 5, iPhone Classic (60 Gb), 16 Gb Flash drive with FAT32 formatting, flat directory structure and MP3s vetted by the syncmyride program.

Any ideas? I'm pulling my hair out at this point.

Has anybody seen this happen in their car yet? I went out to the garage (car had been parked for a couple hours) and turned it on (didn't crank it). The screen remained black for about 45 seconds, so I turned the car off. It flashed grey, then attempted to start playing music. Then that stopped, so I turned the car on again, and this popped up: It's been fine ever since, but sure did freak me out for a minute.

That is ok. It will do that from time to time. Much less now that the update is installed.
