swap sync for standard radio

Hello all,
Sorry if this has been mentioned but I'm interested in replacing my standard radio in my '12 se with the sync version. I talked to a ford parts guy and got some parts numbers but he couldn't tell me if it would work for sure or not. Here are the parts numbers:
CM5T18K811LA
CP9Z14D202A
DB5Z14D212AA
CM5Z18C869HA
CM5T-18B955-GA, GB and GC or CM5T-18B955-GA thru GF

I'm planning on buying these parts secondhand and bringing them to ford to have them installed. I just don't want to buy them all and find out it isn't possible to do this.
Lil' help???

Hello Focus Fanatics!

Really new to SYNC and all, hoping maybe someone can help me with a question I have.

I use Bluetooth audio to play music off Spotify via my GS4. I've noticed that in order to do so, you always have to go to sync settings and select "Bluetooth media" in order to play, everytime you start the car. Is there always for it to go to that mode automatically instead of "line in"? Kinda of annoying having to go into settings every time. Thanks!

Hi Armenian22,

SYNC is no longer setup to default to Bluetooth Audio, but instead of going into the settings, you can just use the voice command: Bluetooth Audio. :)

Broke my heart when my car stopped defaulting to bluetooth once I updated Sync versions. So much so that noe I just plug my phone in via USB... this way I get Song/Artist info in my dash display AND my car will default to it. No more Blue tooth for me... I feel the audio quality is better when its hard wired anyway.

:( I know it did, ThaKillerKlown; I'm glad you found a different way to listen to your music though.

MFT and Sync have been operating great ... up until today. It appears the Navigation is not getting a GPS signal. No matter where I go, the car thinks I am at my house. I have done two master resets, but that did not help. Does anyone have any ideas?

Galaxy S4 and text?

Hey everyone, I just purchased a 2012 Ford Focuse SEL hatchback and absolutely love it. A huge upgrade from my 97 Toyota Camry! I'm just wondering if anyone has solved the riddle of getting SYNC to read text messages via the sync system? I have MyFord SYNC not MyFord Touch. From what I've read says it is compatible. I've tried the master reset and that has not seemed to work. Anyone have any luck?
