Once you have your directions on google maps, click the small 'link' button in the upper right corner of the panel. Then click Send. Options will then come up, one of which will be "car". You then enter your model of car and cell number.

When you get in your car, click the Command button on the wheel and say 'Services'. It will dial in and tell you have directions waiting and ask if you want to download them. Works pretty good and is a lot better than using the touchscreen to enter the destination address.

I am assuming you have to have a phone paired with your car for this? Is this part of the Sync services? We are still waiting on our car so we are not knowledgeable in this area. We ordered Nav, are you saying this is better?

I'd suggest trying the delayedreboot.cab to reboot your MFT. To me it's simpler than pulling fuse.

When did you get your car Gary? If it was in Feb / March of this year you may not get the update and would have to arrange it with your dealer. I suggest you call Sync Support and ask them your status.

Send to SYNC is a feature of the SYNC Services. With Send to SYNC you can select a destination online from your favorite mapping website and simply click the Send to SYNC link or Send to Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicle link. No printing of maps or directions is required.

When you're in your vehicle and your previously paired mobile phone is connected to SYNC, simply press the VOICE button and request, "Services." You'll be asked if you'd like directions to the destination you selected online. After you confirm this request, SYNC Services calculates the optimal route based on current traffic conditions and sends it to your vehicle. Once the route download is complete, SYNC will speak turn-by-turn directions to the destination selected online.

If your vehicle is equipped with a navigation System and has an active SYNC Services subscription, Send to SYNC will calculate a route based on your in-vehicle navigation preferences.

Are you still experiencing this issue? Have you performed a Master Reset since the installation of the new software?

If anyone has additional questions, give me a shout.

Been having some odd issues lately that just cropped up a week or two ago... I always give the system a minute to boot up and make sure all my devices are detected before going and hitting buttons but I've noticed recently that when listening to my iPod through USB or my iPhone through Bluetooth, sometimes hitting the power button to shut off the entertainment portion of the system doesn't work, it'll bring me back to the home screen but the music will stop and then start again and the power button logo doesn't show up, just shows the song info.

In order for this NOT to happen I have to manually pause the song first and then press the power button.

I always shut off the radio before leaving the car so I can avoid any of the small glitches that occur when turning the car on after leaving the radio on (i.e. FM/AM default, overlaid graphic issues, multiple highlighted inputs, etc.)

Any comment on this?

I was getting this as well. Didn't really start for me until about three weeks after the update but then it began, albeit inconsistently and certainly not every time I tried to power down entertainment. I got in the habit of shutting down entertainment as well due to both the instability of 2.11 (didn't want to unnecessarily tax an already unstable system) and the increased use of my remote start in the winter months (no purpose for music to be playing when I wasn't in the car). Hasn't happened since the master reset I did about a week and half ago (this was only one in a list of issues cropping up that finally forced me to that) but then again it didn't occur in the first week and a half after the update either so I am keeping an eye on it.

This happened for me AFTER I did a master reset on the new system to fix the clock constantly failing to update and displaying the time it was when I got out of the car previously... not a big deal hitting pause first but just another step that shouldn't be necessary. I don't mind shutting down entertainment first I do that anyway but having to pause first is annoying.

I just got mine about a week ago so I would maybe give it a bit yet. I have not caught up on the thread totally yet so I don't know if you have tried the down load.

I did the download as soon as it was available on mysync. You HAVE to have an 8gb stick I think it was. I tried to use a smaller stick that had room on it but it wouldn't work.
