I'm trying to download the Gen 1 v3.2.2 update to flash drive via the website, but no matter which of the 3 flash drives I use, it fails every time, reminding me that I need to have 2gb free (i do) and the drive can't be passworded (it isn't). Ideas?

I think I got the same message. Even though it doesn't tell you this you may have to format your drive. I had to format the drive to FAT32 and then it downloaded. Hope that helps.

Thanks.
You're not able to reply with a personal message. However, there are canned messages stored within the system that can be used:

Can’t talk right now
Call me
Where are you?
I need more directions
Thanks
I’m stuck in traffic
Can’t wait to see you
B there in 10 minutes
B there in 20 minutes
I love you
Too funny
Yes
Call U later
No
Why?

*Note: This is a speed dependent feature. The vehicle must be moving less than 3 mph (4.82 km/h) to use this feature.

Let me know if you need addition help with this :)

SYNC AppLink is not available on the Focus at this time. However, you can still listen to Pandora, iHeartRadio, or NPR news. You're just not able to give voice commands for it at this time.

I can help with pairing your phone. Is your Focus equipped with MyFord Touch?

Updates vary between model years as well as build dates. To see if there's an update available specific to your vehicle, check out:

Otherwise, PM me your VIN and I'll check it out for you. :)

My sync does not understand me neither. I find it very funny because my accent is from Detroit. Born and raised.

My question isn't as complex as the other ones, thank God. First, nice to have read all the helpful posts that most of you are sharing here on the forums. It's nice to have that bank of questions and answers. I picked up my 2012 Focus SE 203A five speed two weeks ago, and I absolutely love driving this thing. Two weeks, little over 500 miles due to just random driving. It's a blast to drive.

My question is simple. I have a Droid Bionic through Verizon, and I'm trying to get the Google Maps to read the bluetooth navigation through the speakers. When the phone is not paired through Sync, the navigation will verbally tell me where to go. When is it paired through Sync, there's no verbal read out. Any way to get Google Maps to read the directions through bluetooth?

If there's no solution to this, I can live with it. Just curious if anyone else has had the same problems. Also, How does the Sync Navigation work? Does it take long for the bluetooth to download the directions? Is the call constantly on? The last thing I want to do is run up my minutes because Sync has to stay connected to a phone call.

^ When your Android phone is paired with a Bluetooth audio device, all audio is sent over Bluetooth. What this means is your nav instructions are sent over Bluetooth instead of playing through the internal speaker. So, if you use Bluetooth audio to listen to music on your phone, you will get the prompts.

That's how my HTC Sensation 4G works, anyway.. I presume all devices should work that way.

Congrats on the new ride, btw. I broke 200 miles since Thursday earlier. :)
