Updating cell phone tower service
Tracing the location of your Android phone really couldn’t get any easier.So long as you have location services on your Android turned on, you can visit Google’s Android Device Manager’s Find My Device page to get the location of your phone.Be sure to register an account on Ford’s Sync My Ride website.This site is a resource for all Sync users and has a wealth of resource information and videos. If you want to upgrade, use a clean USB jump drive and follow instructions to download the update from the website.Then go to your phone, to the Settings, Bluetooth Settings, and push Add Device.
For those of you with the LED screen on your center console, turn the tuning knob until it says Special PIN, hit OK, and it usually comes up with “0000” (or the alternate”1234”).
The Ford Microsoft Sync system works well with most phones.
However, if some phones, like the Android-based Samsung, HTC or even the Blackberry phones, need to be “paired” correctly.
Select your phone, and then push the OK button on steering wheel or dash to delete it. Then turn the vehicle off, and open the door to make sure everything is powered down. Some people have been trying to pull the Sync fuse from their vehicle’s fuse box, this process accomplishes the same effect, and its easier.
Then go to the phone, to its Settings folder, Bluetooth Settings, Connected Devices, and then “delete” the phone. This procedure signals your vehicle to “reboot” from factory specs and it refreshes the system.
