Sync / Bluetooth phone ringer volume is way too loud

It scares the cr@p out of me every time.

When I got the car, I ws toldthere is no way to adjust. Is there still no way to lower it?

When the Sync lady is talking, turn the knob down. It only works when shes talking though.

Same for phone. Turn the knob down when your phone is activated on a call.

At least thats how it works in a car with navi.

when its ringing, simply turn the volume knob to adjust it up or down

If the voice prompts and ringtones are too loud, use the SYNC Volume Control to adjust the volume to a more comfortable level.

It can be downloaded from SyncMyRide using a USB drive and then installing it in your vehicle.

Use the link below and scroll to SYNC Tools & Applications:

Support

There is a file available for both PC and Mac users.

Let me know if you have questions.

I tried several times with IE8 and Firefox 9 to download the version checker from syncmyride. Every time, I got a "Download failed " message. I even tried reformatting my USB drive

Im confused, why take these extra steps when you can simply use that big ole volume knob Ford placed on the control panel? LOL

I'm not sure if you saw my reply in your other post, but if you receive a message that your attempt to upload a confirmation file failed, the message may be due to a network failure. In this case, please try to upload the same confirmation file again, later.

If you receive the message again, the file you are attempting to upload may be incomplete. In this case, please download the SYNC Status Checker and plug your USB drive into your vehicle's USB port. Be sure your vehicle is running and SYNC is ON. Wait a few minutes while SYNC automatically records your present version to the USB drive. Then remove the USB drive and attempt to report the successful install by uploading the confirmation file again.

If you do not see the updated file you attempted to install, the file installation may have not completed. In this case, download the file to your USB drive and upload the file to SYNC. Be sure your vehicle is running and SYNC is ON. Wait until SYNC displays: Installation Complete or INSTALL DONE. Then remove the USB drive and attempt to report the successful install by uploading the confirmation file again.

Otherwise, feel free to PM me your VIN and I'll check it out for you.

While that is an option, some customers prefer to download this so when a call or prompt initially comes through, it's at an appropriate tone for them.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. Although you can access SYNC Owner with most browsers, in order to have full functionality of the site, such as personalizing your SYNC Owner account and downloading and reporting SYNC installation updates, you 'll need to enable cookies and use one of the following browsers:
  • Google Chrome™ (versions 6–13) for Mac® and Windows®
  • Internet Explorer® (versions 7–9) for Windows
  • Mozilla Firefox® (versions 3–6) for Windows

You may need to install Java™ for Chrome and Firefox and enable ActiveX® for IE.

Let me know if you're using a compatible browser.

Yes I am using IE 8 and also tried Firefox 9. I am able to use the Syncmyride site for most anything without issue, but the status checker will not download without error
