I may have uncovered a little more information. As per this FAQ on syncmyride (you might have to log in):

http://www.syncmyride.com/Own/Module....aspx?faqId=27

It shows that they don't implement MAP in "older" versions of Sync, and I found this press release:

http://corporate.ford.com/news-cente...ate-adds-35451

That shows V3.2.2 (not available to us) is the first version to implement MAP (and probably the AVRCP protocol I'm more interested in). So the real question is... why do we not get 3.2.2 and 2011 MY cars (like Fiesta) get it?

My Galaxy Nexus streaming over BT to MFT (both V2 and V3) has always showed "Galaxy Nexus - Unknown Artist - Unknown Track" on the music screen.

I'm no better off than you are.

When I do bluetooth audio with my iPhone 4 on 5.1.1 , I get Artist and Track info. Sometimes it shows the wrong Artist for 10 seconds.

aHanDLe - mine pauses the phone when I shut down and continues automatically when I return to and start the car again (iPhone4, not 4S and MFT but don't know why either of those should make a difference).

Ditto (same phone and version of iOS) but it can be spotty for me. Sometimes it goes with unknown for both song title and artist, sometimes it shows the first song played and doesn't update after that one regardless of how many songs play, and sometimes it works flawlessly - updating with each song. No discernable pattern that I've been able to find. Just does its (sometimes good sometimes bad) thing.

New update from me for all this... my car randomly decided to start telling me about text messages. Not sure what exactly changed (I didn't change anything on my phone, didn't repair the phone, etc). So that means 3.1.1 supports MAP just like 3.2.2.
It spoke the text message to me, then displayed the sender on the screen. Ironically, you'd think you should be able to hit the "call/answer" button and it would call the person for you, but it doesn't. Yet the "hang up" button sent it back to radio.

Now the real question is, does sync without MFT support AVRCP 1.3/1.4 or just 1.0? Looks like a couple users above confirmed that MFT supports at least 1.3.

Copernicium, mine does not. It pauses the track, but when I return it just reads, "LineIn" or something like that. I have to then go through allll the prompts either manually, or say bluetooth audio for it to continue playing... sucks

Hmmm, maybe there is a difference DaeHan. See post #3 here:

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1270177

Seems to be your exact problem. BTW, I'm assuming you have BT autoplay set to on? Also, know anyone with an iPhone4 that you could pair to your car to see if that one resumes play after restarting? Would be interesting to try.....

Not trying to threat jack, but this got me thinking about other things I've always wondered. I have the same SE setup as the OP.
-Does anyone know how to switch it, so that the device controls the track, not the HU when attached via USB?
-Do you have to say/start bluetooth audio every single time you get in your car? Or is there a way the system can just pick up where you left off by default?

Oh man, if we could get it to default to the last audio source when you restart the car, I'd be so thrilled. It is so frustrating to have to do EVERY TIME when I get in the car. I listen to Pandora almost exclusively in my car, and I do it over bluetooth almost all the time. Only when I need a little juice in the battery will I do the USB option.

But yes, please FORD allow us to default to the last source option. I have to activate the voice control and say "bluetooth audio" every damn time.

I have an iPhone 4S running 5.1.1 on non-MFT SYNC. This is a SYNC thing, not a device thing, IMO.
