Android device I assume? MFT (and most car head units) only see the first drive presented to it. At least that is the case for my old phone as well (Galaxy S Captivate) This is more of an issue with the phone to be honest. If your phone is rooted there are programs in the store that let you change the order of your SD cards. Othewise you could also buy a cheap USB microsd card reader.

Easily create Music playlists on USB drives for use with the basic "MyFord and Sync" system. Should work for MFT too.

could someone explain how the 2013 has applink and the 2012 does not I already got penalized for buying a manual with the 6 speaker system and just my ford which doesn't even do the voice commands for radio and sirius like the dealer said it would do. what is so different that they couldn't update the 2012s that is a major also to the face

Yeah so the question I have now is when will the sync with myford models from 2012 be able to use this newer software with applink compatibility?

Never seems to be the answer I've seen from IVT so far (well no answer is as good as a never so far).

There has yet to be one update pushed to SMR for my car even though there was at least two newer revisions of sync g1 from 3.1.1 to 3.1.4c last year and 4.0.x with applink this my.

Correct. It's only non-MFT 2013 model year Focuses so far.

EDIT: Suss, is it on the 2013 S models? <- US S, not Euro Zetec S - obviously. lol

Yeah, I notice the complete lack of input/information from Jaclyn on this one!
