    Auto Start/Stop on 2018 SEL 2.0 AWD

    Ah got it. Poorly worded by Ford IMHO, but that must be it.

    Auto Start/Stop on 2018 SEL 2.0 AWD

    Exactly my thoughts. Why put a menu option for something that is non-functional, and why I started scratching my head....

    Auto Start/Stop on 2018 SEL 2.0 AWD

    Looking at the brochure for the MY 18, it looks like it was not installed on SEL AWD models. Only SE FWD.... https://www.ford.com/services/assets/Brochure?make=Ford&model=Edge&year=2018&postalCode=25508

    Auto Start/Stop on 2018 SEL 2.0 AWD

    No 'A' button anywhere on the dash. Was it an option? TIA - Tim
  5. I have a menu in the vehicle settings for auto start stop, which is checked, but the car never auto starts/stops when at a light etc. I am not too bothered if I don't have the feature (IO it is a PIA) but curious whether it should be working. Comments appreciated. TIA - Tim

    Carplay and Waze now supported

    I noticed my first issue today with Waze. I entered and address, and no matter how many times I clicked on the Go! or start navigation buttons, Waze completely ignored me! Even after re-starting the app and re connecting the phone, it still had the same behavior. Resotred to using Google maps, which worked flawlessly. Looks like Waze still has some 'features' in it....

    Carplay and Waze now supported

    Indeed. Happy camper here finally. I now have two viable alternatives to Apple Maps - Google maps and Waze. Whilst Waze is my normal go-to, I really like the satellite view that you can enable in Google Maps, that is silky smooth and looks amazing. Now if Google Maps added speed limits then I'd be done with Waze....
  8. Yay, Finally something that actually works! I find Apple maps to be particularly useless and I was very also unhappy with the buggy Waze support when meant completely disabling Apple Carplay to get something slow and not very useful. I upgraded to IOS 12 and have the latest Sync 3 s/w (IMHO Ford versioning is particularly obtuse but I loaded it as a latest version in the second week of Sept). I now have a new app called Google maps in Apple Carplay and boy does it work well. Fast, simple and accurate mapping, accurate address searching (Apple maps take note) and to cap it all the Satellite view is simply breathtaking on the Sync 3 screen. I hope at some point that Waze is truly integrated, but for now Google maps will work just fine and as I said, the satellite view is amazing. I'll post some pictures in a while.....
  9. There is a switched fuse in the fuse box under the drivers side knee cover. It is extremely hard to get to and Ford used some small-ass fuses that are very fiddly. I ran the wire up the inside of the door seal and under the headlining, as I don't like any visible wires.... I used an Autozone save-a-fuse that gives you a second tap and it worked great from my windshield mounted Dashcam. I used fuse 23 (delayed accessory power) as it is switched but stays on for 5 or so minutes after shutdown, which is perfect for my dashcam as it has a parking record mode. Details of the fuses are here http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/Catalog/owner_information/2018-Ford-Edge-Owners-Manual-version-1_om_EN-US_EN-CA_08_2017.pdf - Tim

    Sync 3 Nav upgrade - quick question

    Hmm. I got ForScan, licensed and a USB ELM Config from ohp with the switch. I can see the IPC module but my default config for the 720-05-01 is D028 0000 00B0 which does not match the details given in the linked modsheet which should be D8B8 xxxx xxxx (no Nav). I'm sure it is something simple but darned if I can see it. --> Does anyone have a 2017/18 with nav and who would be willing to read the 720-05-01 block in their IPC and report back? I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks@

    Sync 3 Nav upgrade - quick question

    Thank you. Now I need to get to grips with Forscan
  14. I recently installed a NAV-enabled APIM in my 2018 2.0T SEL. The APIM was programmed with the correct VIN and the center 8" screen works fine.I can't recall completely, but my memory of rental Edges' is that the Nav menu also shows up in the right hand display in the main instrument cluster. Can anyone confirm whether that is true or not? Further if it is correct, does anyone know how to enable it, I presume a visit to the dealer.... TIA - Tim
  15. Quick question, does anyone know how easy/feasible it would be to add the original factory sub to the original 9-speaker system on the SE (with option 201A). I'm no audiophile but the system is really lacking in bass, but at the same time I don't want to mess around with custom boxes, amplifiers etc. I just want an easy way to add a bit of bass. The 9 speaker system on the 2018 is woefully under-documented IMHO. Thanks - Tim
