    I've got everything except text messaging working. 2012 Focus Titanium with MFT. Artist & Track information works over bluetooth. USB works with some cables but not others but will not play xbox music tracks, things from itunes, other sources will play. Nokia Drive audio does play over bluetooth for me.


    On a side note- If you have added any emoticons into contact names and they call your phone it crashes the MFT system until you pull the fuse :( Found that out while I was trying to get around boston today. Thankfully the phone gps got me the rest of the way lol

    I have a 2010 fusion and my phone locks every time it connects unless I make sure a music app is running. Any special settings in sync?

    Prior to the 920 I had a lumia 800 and an HTC trophy paired with sync.

    After using it for about a month now I can say there are definitely serious issues with the 920 or wp8 in general. I have noticed the skipping of audio when first getting into the car. This goes away after a bit, maybe it's an address book sync issue. Old phones did not do this.

    BT audio has crashed out of playing music. When it happens, the sync states the 920 lost connection, but the other bt functions seem to work although I didn't confirm.

    BT audio has failed to show up as available on many occasions. This happened on the other phones from time to time. The only consistent fix has been to disconnect the device in sync and reconnect. Power cycling the phone doesn't fix it for me.

    BT audio shows up, I can play songs, switch songs, but no audio comes out.

    I'm more annoyed with sync now more than ever. This vehicle has been a very expensive mistake. I just hope they fix it.

    I have a 2010 Fusion, only issues I am having is I cannot reply to texts. It will read them out loud, then the only options are to "call" or "im done". With ph7.5 I was able to "call", "reply" or "I'm done". any ideas?

    I can reply just fine on my 2010 fusion.
    Check on the phone settings under Speech if you have the "Enable Speech Recognition Service" checked off as well as "Use Speech when the phone is locked"

    Mikes, I have Hyundai's BlueLink in a Veloster and the 920 is full of issues my Gen1 Dell Venue Pro didn't have. I wouldn't blame it on your car, I'd blame it on the 920. The experience for me is flaky at best.

    My workmate has a 2012 Ford F150 with SYNC. The bluetooth works for playing music, but he can't get the song name/artist to show on the screen. He had the same problem with iPhone. Any ideas here?

    I also had this problem with my Lumia 920. This is definitely tied to the address book sync. That I can tell, Sync is downloading the whole friggin address book every time it connects. So music and the address book sync are fighting for bluetooth bandwidth. To get around the problem, I disabled the address book sync. This was an acceptable solution for me because the contacts I call rarely ever change.

    My problem is that if I try to go forward or back to a different song, my phone drops connection as somebody mentioned above and I have to un-pair and re-pair the phone back to MFT/Sync.

    I'd also like to see track information show up. I could have sworn my Android phone did this, but I might have been connected via USB.

    I have a 2013 Ford Explorer with MFT (sync)...

    I previously had a Samsung Focus linked by bluetooth.
    Now with the 920 I've noticed that on occasion when I turn off the Explorer and leave it the vehicle, the phone will not turn on...it might have to do with when I try to turn the phone on...it actually is still working as if I go back in the vehicle it will pair up with the Explorer again but there is no screen and the buttons don't seem to do anything...
    I then have to do a Power/VOL Down reset...then all is normal...

    I also noticed that Sync won't let me have my zuneHD plugged in and play music from the 920 through bluetooth...the Zune HD has to be unplugged

    Just an update: Since updating the My Ford Touch software on my Ford I haven't had any issues. My assumption was that Ford would continue to send me updates in the mail but this seems to not have been the case.
