I recently had to replace my 2011 Edge Limited due to an unscheduled rapid disassembly incident. The replacement is a 2013 Edge Limited basically outfitted with the same options. My 2011 had the last known snyc2 update of v3.8. This version gave us the Siri Eyes function which was great. We could have MFT read the inbound texts to us over the sound system and send any text outbound via Siri. Very cool When I got my 2013 and started checking out all its bits, I noted that the sync2 version was at v3.6. No, no no, we just can't have that. Besides which there was no Siri Eyes with v3.6, but there is with v3.8. I checked around and also searched around here to see if there had been an updates that I was not aware of since 3.8 back in late 2015. There didn't appear to be. I made an appointment to get the 2013 updated to v3.8 (current). At this point, v3.6 still had the little envelope icon at the far left of the row of icons, followed by the 911 service, battery & signal strength. When an inbound text would arrive, MFT would "alert" me via a tone over the sound system and I had the choice to "listen" or ignore. Listen would cause MFT to read me the texts. However, a few days after the update to SYNC, presumably to v3.8, I noticed I was no longer getting Alerted nor did I get the "listen or ignore" prompt on the right hand small dash screen. When I had my APIM replaced on the 2011, the dealership neglected to active or install the 911 feature to which they happily corrected by "activating" that module or installing some additional software. I figured this would just be the same easy fix. So I picked up my Edge tonight only to be told that this version of sync no longer supports the reading of text to me! ???? Wait, on my 2011 with v3.8 and this iphone6 right here it did. On this 2013 Edge with v3.6 and this here iphone it did. How is a 2013 on v3.8 (or so I thought) not going to work on my iphone?? Answer, because its v3.10! When I checked my records on the 2011 for its sync update history and see Apr 19, 2011 v3.5, Oct 9, 2014, & Dec 11, 2015 for v3.8.When I checked the health report that I ran on the way home for the 2013, I see Oct 8, 2013 v3.6 and ... wait .. what?? March 1 (when I had it updated) SYNC2 - v3.10 Did anyone else know about v3.10? Can anyone with an iphone on iOS 10.2.1 or the recently released iOS 10.3 paired to the Edge Sync2 running v3.10 or v3.8 A ) does it have the Envelope icon above the Phone Connected and B ) does it read inbound texts to you over the sound system? I've hard rebooted the iphone, deleted the pairing on both the iPhone and my Edge. Even updated the iOS and checked any Siri or messaging settings. Nothing, still no go. This is frustrating - an update that removes or breaks a good function.
I am seriously considering the new Windows 8 phone when it arrives to replace my iphone. Just wondering if there may be more integration with Sync since they are both Microsoft products. Ford has apparently decided not to have integration with Siri directly through Sync. The new Win 8 phone will have an updated voice program that looks better than Siri in that it can open apps, but can also control the app once it is open, such as starting Pandora and commanding it to play an artist or song. It would be a huge safety feature (not to mention the coolness factor :shades:) to be able to press the voice button on the wheel and control it directly instead of having to use the phone.
I am having an issue when using Siri through bluetooth with MFT. The issue is a very long lag in "hanging up" after a command is executed. For example, if I tell Siri to send a message to my wife, after Siri confirms it is sending the message, there is a very long(over one minute) delay before the "call hangs up" and my music resumes playing. Is anyone else seeing this issue?
