2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost: Beating a Dead Horse Edition (Part ??)

July 30, 2012


Do you ever get the feeling that somethings will never "fix?" Apparently, our MyFord Touch has been updated to the latest, greatest version. Yet, after an entire weekend of unremarkable Bluetooth connectivity, several trips, using both the phone and Bluetooth audio without a hitch, our Explorer and my iPhone inexplicably wouldn't talk to one another this morning.
More after the jump...

First I tried to do in from the touchscreen in the Explorer,


but the system timed out before it paired to my phone. Then I tried to connect to SYNC from my phone, and finally, I tried to synchronize the connection process between the two at roughly the same time. Nada.
