Ford Sync and Android with external SD Card

I was so dissapointed when I found out that Ford Sync only read the internal memory of my Galaxy Note II. I have an 32G MicroSD Card that I put all my music on and Ford Sync can't see any of it. I do not want to put my music on the internal storage.

This is a sad that I have to use BT audio streaming lose most voice command. I hope Ford would issue a patch to use MTP protocol instead of USB Mass Storage or enable BT MAP support.

Transfer all your music on the MicroSD to USB and you're golden. If you're using the port in the center console there is another one just inside the glove box.

Well . . ... it's not quite that easy. You have to drop down the glove box face and look up and backwards. Do a search someone wrote up procedures on how to find it. I have an extension cable running from the port to the glove box.

Hi, fogboundturtle -

Using a thumb drive is great, you can buy one for a couple bucks and leave it in your car permanently! Just be sure it's formatted to FAT 32 and not password-protected.

Hi Jaclyn,

While you're answering questions, I thought I would ask one. Many times when I start my car, even after having just turned it off to run into a store, SYNC suddenly doesnt recognize my Ipod that's plugged in, even though it might have been just working. I try to unlug everything and re-connect, and sometimes it works, but mostly it doesn't. Is this a known issue? Do I need an update?

Hi, DerekStangGT -

When this happens, have you tried giving the voice command USB? I'll be happy to check for an available update, please PM me your VIN.
