Bluetooth media default

I just got my Focus and really like it. Not sure if this is a bug with SYNC or not, but whenever I push Media, it always defaults to line in it seems. Not only that, bluetooth isn't a choice. I can say "bluetooth audio" and it then works, I can listen to my music from the phone, etc.

Next, if I turn off the car, then come back and start it, the screen still says "bluetooth audio" and my phone shows connected, but no sound comes out when I play music. Only when I say "bluetooth audio" again does the music magically appear.

Annoying. Is this the norm?

Had mine updated to the latest Sync version 13-09-22 and it still defaults to line-in nearly half the time. Quite annoying

This unfortunately is how the system works--very frustrating. When using BlueTooth audio or USB input, after restarting the car, it defaults to line-in half the time.

I'd suggest you (and everybody else who sees this a a system defect) contact SYNC support and log a complaint. The more that do, the better chance they'll prioritize fixing this bug.

Not sure and could be just coincidence but if I turn the HU off before shutting off car it has stayed on USB input so far.
