    I've purchased a Ford F-150 which has the SYNC system in the vehicle. Following Ford's instructions to "Pair, Connect etc." do not seem to work with my Droid X phone.

    It seems that SYNC recognizes my Droid X but will not connect to it. That being the case, the SYNC system is of little value to me. Has anyone else had this problem? And if so, what (was / is) the resolution to it?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have a 2010 F-150 and the Sync was working great with the Droid X. All of the sudden it stopped working. Can't remember how I figured this out but; go to the Ford website. Log in to your account for your truck. Under "Vehicle Basics/SYNC and SYNC with MyFord Touch you will see "Check SYNC software updates". Toward the bottom of the page you will find "Udate and Customize"/Get Updates. Follow the instruction.

    Hope this helps,
    Jim

    After posting my question above I located a SYNC technician and had a "CHAT" with him. He was able to give me alternate instructions which seem to apply to Android type telephones. I followed the instructions below and was able to Pair and Connect my Droid X with my new SYNC radio system. A W E S O M E ! ! ! ! [​IMG]dancedroid

    On your SYNC radio in your vehicle you do the following:


    1. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Press the phone button to access the phone menu[/FONT]
    2. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Scroll to Add Device and press OK[/FONT]
    3. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]It will say "FIND SYNC" and begin giving instructions. Instead of following the instructions, scroll up or to the left one space[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]It should then say FIND DEVICES[/FONT]
    5. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Press OK with the phone in discoverable mode, and SYNC will find the phone[/FONT]
    6. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Select <your phone> from the list of nearby devices and press OK[/FONT]
    7. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]It will ask for a PIN[/FONT]
    8. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Say the PIN as if you were giving a command. It (SYNC) will repeat it back to you. I used 0000 (--- those are zeros)[/FONT]
    9. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Press OK[/FONT]
    10. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]Your phone will ask for a PIN number. Enter the same one as above[/FONT]
    11. [FONT=comic sans ms,sans-serif]After pressing OK or Enter on the phone, they will attempt to make the connection[/FONT]
