    I have the droid with sync in a Lincoln MKX, it works perfectly but it hijacks all of the sounds. Was using turn by turn navigation but when I started the car no sound. Had to turn on the media select bluetooth and the directions came through the cars system. Any one else find this ?

    This is great! This was my only issue with buying one. Now that I know it will work with Sync, I'm getting one! The only question I have is whether or not you can leave it in your pocket or do you have to take it out so it can pair? My Blackberry connects as soon as the radio powers up, no matter where I have the phone.

    Have a Lincoln MKX. My Droid syncs as soon as I turn on the key. Normally the Droid is in a hip clip or my jacket pocket. If I am travelling I plug it into the USB slot to charge it.

    Works for me, I did have a problem with the entry screen closing, but on the third attempt I typed faster and was able to beat the close. I am still disappointed that the phone does not support bluetooth text messaging (even after 2.0.1). For those that don't know, Ford Sync can read text message to you while driving, but unfortunately very few phones actually support it. Last I looked, the iPhone still did not support it.

    Sounds like a ford problem more than a BT issue...

    If you want the employee discount, go work in a Ford dealer. We have to get something back for working in the auto industry in this economy.

    If the phone doesn't support the protocol and the car does, then it is a Droid problem, not a Ford Sync problem. Currently there are very few auxiliary devices (possible none) other than Ford Sync that are capable of doing text messages over bluetooth. But now that Ford several million cars with Sync on the road, the manufactures should step up and support the protocol. I have had Sync for almost 2 years now, it is standard equipment on every well equipped Ford car and available for about $200 on lower end models.

    I believe that this an optional implementation in the Bluetooth specification, but few manufactures have thus far have implemented it.
