2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: SYNC + USB
June 23, 2011
I know I'm in the minority when I say that I'm not completely smitten with Ford's SYNC, but I'm willing to play along. This morning, I tried out the USB port with a flash-memory stick and got mixed results. I tried to use the voice-activated menu to access the "SYNC USB"audio input, but it said that it was not available. Not one to give up, I started pushing buttons (Menu), turning knobs (Tuning/OK), and voila, I was able to find the USB source and play my music. Pressing the "TEXT"button also allowed me to read the Album, Genre, and Track Numbers among other things. I have to admit, however, that navigating folders, albums, and specific tracks was pretty clunky compared to other systems with larger displays and more intuitive navigation.
