Apple and Microsoft don't mix and since our cars have Microsoft they need rebooted monthly.

How long can any Microsoft product go without needing fixes and rebooted?



PS, I have my Bluetooth turned off as I want to drive and enjoy.

Hi again,

Unfortunately, I am only able to submit feedback on my end if it is associated with a specific owner.

This website was under maintenance when I posted my original comment, but it's back up now. Feel free to post your suggestion here: social.ford.com/your-ideas/‎ This option does not require you to provide any personal information other than your name and email address. This will give Ford's Product Development Team a chance to see it. They look through these ideas for insights and inspiration.

Although SYNC Services are not available in Canada, you do still have the text message option available. To see a list of Canadian carriers, click the link in the upper right hand corner of this chart: SYNC and Phone Compatibility | SYNC Support | SYNC & SYNC with MyFord | Ford.com To see which phones support text messaging, click SMS TEXT MESSAGING on the left.

Wait...We can edit the preset text message replies? Obviously not while driving but if i'm parked, how do i change the preset messages? I'd like to put "OK" on the list.

Hi JCTurbo,

You can only do this if you have a MyFord/Lincoln Touch system in your vehicle. A phone must be connected and the car must be in park. Press PHONE > MESSAGING > SEND TEXT > Dial the phone number you wish to send a text to and touch OK. You'll see a list of preset messages listed, click one that you don't use very often, then press EDIT TEXT and use the keyboard to change the message. In the future, you'll see that message saved in your preset list.

That is correct, JCTurbo. I still wanted to share the information in case anyone had a second vehicle with MyFord Touch. I apologize if I created any confusion.

Kim,

Will there be any software updates for the existing mustangs with sync and nav?

Being able to change the preset text messages would be a nice feature and should be easy to do. I know many users are eager to hear about updates.

Yes this would be pretty huge but I'm not really expecting any more feature updates on our systems.

Hi JCTurbo and Elite_Deforce,

I am unable to provide information about future updates. My best recommendation is to check your account periodically for software updates at: SYNC Technology | SYNC Support | Ford.com

My experiences with Sync has been so bad there aren't enough adjectives to describe it. It's left such a bad taste I'll NEVER buy another Ford product. How FMC ever approved it to begin with is amazing. To procure competitive products is the only answer.
