I'm not sure what you mean. I use Google Voice for voice mail and a second number. I use that with Sync, but I'm not sure how that relates to Sync Services.

I havent had my focus long, but every time i plug in my ipod (80gb classic) I have to wait several minutes while it 'builds voice commands'

I can play my tracks by navigating via the d-pad, but it kind of defeats the purpose of voice commands. Is this normal?

That is the nature of the system. When you unplug media from SYNC, then plug it back in, it assumes it is a new device. Rather than using a media player, I use a 2.5" USB hard drive formatted as FAT32 and leave it plugged in. SYNC builds voice commands once and keeps them as long as the hard drive is still present.

It should be noted that I am limited to about 10,000 songs on the hard drive. Once I exceed that number, SYNC disables voice commands for the drive.

I use a 120gb classic with over 6,000 songs. It takes about 20 minutes for mine to totally index and build voice commands. If I remove it and then plug it back in with no changes, it launches indexing/BVC again but once it realizes there is nothing different, the message disappears after only a couple of minutes. Any change to it though, even adding one song, and it repeats the entire 20 min process.

Well that blows because i mainly use my ipod for podcasts so i update it daily, but i keep a ton of other music on there as well in case i want to listen to something else so theres a lot to index. I guess i'll just be stuck navigating the the steering wheel controls.

One thing I discovered early on was that it took forever for my ipod to index if I had any movies on it. I deleted the movies and it indexes in less than a minute with about 8.5 gigs of music. Don't know if that helps but thought I would mention it.

I have no videos, just ~40gb of music. I'm thinking about just using my phone for daily podcasts and my ipod for everything else. I'm not sure yet...
