Updating S Model Audio System??

Hi guys,

I own a 2012 Focus S model. I have problems with my radio when connected to iPhone lately. One of the members from fordownersclub pointed me out to a new update:
http://www.ford-mobile-connectivity....wnloadsUpdates

I've downloaded the files and put them in the top level and followed the instructions. However, it gives me "No Files in USB" when I plug the USB in.

here's the video which shows my problem:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=TDsiV4oWvFU
Any idea why?

I'm assuming you are following the instructions here:

http://www.ford-mobile-connectivity....structions.pdf

??? Also - the instructions don't say so, but you should be using a USB drive formatted as FAT32, the update file needs to be extracted (not a .zip file) to the highest level of the drive - and it's probably best if no other files are on the drive.

Maybe - The S doesn't have SYNC. I wasn't sure if it had USB or Bluetooth, but I guess you confirmed it does.

Bluetooth? I don't really know if the car has it. However, it does has a USB Port.

Okay - the description on the Ford audio software site specifically mention updating the radio to work with the latest phones and Bluetooth, so I think that update is just for the SYNC and up stereo's.

I thought you were streaming audio from the iPhone to the stereo.

If you are just using it as a USB Mass Storage Device, I'm not sure why the USB port would stop working.

I'm not sure I understand this part "I thought you were streaming audio from the iPhone to the stereo."

Anyways, have you checked the youtube link in the original post?

I really appreciate your help!

Where the hell is the USB port for the S model's audio system? Only thing I've been able to find is the Aux Audio port in the glovebox... Unless the European S is different from the USA's S...

Quite different. I had an S model for a rental car in Stuttgart a few weeks ago and it had a lot of the same features as our SE w/203A. More like the SEL in some ways.

That said, I'm not sure that anyone here's going to be able to help out the OP on this one although we do have some European members that might be able to relate.
