The following guide and downloadable file will help you to update the Bluetooth, Voice Control and USB module in the following Ford vehicles. The release date was Novemberand was the third publicly released firmware update.
According to the Ford documentation the update is valid for the following vehicles and build dates:. The website was taken down some time in aboutpresumably for one of two reasons. Either people were messing up their radios and requiring dealership service, or they realised that they were missing out on a source of service revenue by giving away the updates.
Please note that if your car does not have a USB port you will not be able to do the update, and the only way to get it is via a visit to the dealership. There are several improvements to be gained from updating your Bluetooth firmware. The level will depend on the age of your vehicle, as models later in the run will have been shipped with more up to date versions. The major differences are:. Whilst updating my Mondeo the car gave a Low Battery warning, and the radio shut off.
I started the engine, and was amazed to see that the radio came back to life with the update still running. It had carried on even with the radio off the bluetooth module is a separate box behind the glovebox area.
Here is a very useful summary video. Video produced by iNath, over at Ford Owners Club. If this info has been of use to you please consider making a small contribution to help cover the costs of running this site. The button below will bill you one pound and reward you with my gratitude and maybe some extra technical help.
USB might be near the handbrake, in the front armrest, or in the glove box. Or you might not have one. Will it work? No idea. Depends if you have a suitable stereo with bluetooth and USB. If you have, it should do. Mine comes up with no files found, I press the start button and wait for the clutch message to go then comes up update failed straight away!
What am I doing wrong? Read through the existing comments, there are many possible reasons, eg Faulty USB drive Wrong file system Incompatible USB Wrong folder Software already same version or newer Need to delete unnecessary language files. Any further updates your a where of I have a Ford smax. I used this your page when I updated the car three years ago. Worked on the second attempt once I realised I had done something wrong.
Heart Christmas was one from last year and capital dance which just started this week.
Any help much appreciated and thank you for this original post. Hi Martin. Do you know what it could be? Thanks mate. I have galaxy with battery drain issue.
According to your text this update is for galaxy. However my radio panel looks exactly like in the top pic. Can I still try this fix or will I mess everything up? If your car is a unless possibly very early in the model year then it will probably have this firmware or newer already.Ford Sync stylized Ford SYNC is a factory-installed, integrated in-vehicle communications and entertainment system that allows users to make hands-free telephone calls, control music and perform other functions with the use of voice commands.
The Ford SYNC technology was promoted as a new product that provided drivers with the ability to operate Bluetooth -enabled mobile phones and digital media players in their vehicles using voice commandsthe vehicle's steering wheeland radio controls. SYNC's text message function also has the ability to interpret approximately one hundred shorthand messages, such as " LOL ", and will read "swear words", but does not decipher acronyms that have been considered by the designers to be "obscene".
Certain voice commands, such as "Turn-by-turn directions", "Vehicle Health Report", "Weather" and climate control commands are not available in some countries such as Canada due to compatibility issues. For example, many commands are not available because there is no French equivalent for a command in English. Ford Canada expects to address these issues in upcoming versions of the software after the issues are worked out in detail, but there does not appear to be a firm release date.
SYNC has various mobile-integration capabilities, including "Push to Talk" on the steering wheelwireless transfer of contacts between a mobile phone and the on-board phone book, as well as various advanced calling features, such as caller IDcall waitingconference callinga caller log, a list of contacts, a signal strength icon, and a phone battery charge icon.
Personal ring tones can also be assigned to identify specific callers. SYNC can convert a user's SMS messages to audio and read them out loud to the user through the vehicle's speaker system. This feature is carrier dependent as well as dependent on the device of the user.
The feature is supported by several phone operating systems, including the iPhonemost Android models, and Windows Mobile. This feature is also dependent on the phone support Bluetooth Message Access Profile. Users can browse through music collections by genre, album, artist, and song title using voice commands. With certain devices, SYNC is also capable of playing protected content for example Zune Pass downloadsprovided that usage rights on the device are current.
The Assist application places a direct call to a local emergency operator in the event of a serious accident with an airbag deployment. Before initiating the emergency call, SYNC will provide a second window to allow the driver or passenger to decide whether to cancel the call. If not manually cancelled within the second window, SYNC will place the emergency call.
A pre-recorded message will play when the call is answered, and occupants in the vehicle will then be able to communicate directly with the operator. In Europe this feature is called Emergency Assistance. It will call in over 40 countries. AppLink allows iPhone and Android -based cellular devices to run approved applications using the car's buttons or voice commands.Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard used for exchanging data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances using UHF radio waves in the industrial, scientific and medical radio bandsfrom 2.
It was originally conceived as a wireless alternative to RS data cables. Bluetooth is managed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group SIGwhich has more than 35, member companies in the areas of telecommunication, computing, networking, and consumer electronics. The Bluetooth SIG oversees development of the specification, manages the qualification program, and protects the trademarks. It was the epithet of King Harald Bluetooth who united dissonant Danish tribes into a single kingdom.
The implication being that Bluetooth unites communication protocols. Both were working for Ericsson in Lund. The two assigned engineers from Ericsson and IBM to study the idea. The conclusion was that power consumption on cellphone technology at that time was too high to allow viable integration into a notebook and still achieve adequate battery life.
Instead, the two companies agreed to integrate Ericsson's short-link technology on both a ThinkPad notebook and an Ericsson phone to accomplish the goal. Since neither IBM ThinkPad notebooks nor Ericsson phones were the market share leaders in their respective markets at that time, Adalio Sanchez and Nils Rydbeck agreed to make the short-link technology an open industry standard to permit each player maximum market access.
Ericsson contributed the short-link radio technology, and IBM contributed patents around the logical layer. The first consumer Bluetooth device was launched in The first Bluetooth mobile phone was the Ericsson T36 but the revised T39 model actually made it to store shelves in Bluetooth operates at frequencies between 2. Bluetooth uses a radio technology called frequency-hopping spread spectrum.
Bluetooth divides transmitted data into packets, and transmits each packet on one of 79 designated Bluetooth channels. Originally, Gaussian frequency-shift keying GFSK modulation was the only modulation scheme available. Since the introduction of Bluetooth 2. One master may communicate with up to seven slaves in a piconet. All devices within a given piconet use the master's clock as the base for packet exchange.
The master clock ticks with a period of In the simple case of single-slot packets, the master transmits in even slots and receives in odd slots. The slave, conversely, receives in even slots and transmits in odd slots. Packets maybe 1, 3, or 5 slots long, but in all cases, the master's transmission begins in even slots and the slave's in odd slots. The above excludes Bluetooth Low Energy, introduced in the 4.
The devices can switch roles, by agreement, and the slave can become the master for example, a headset initiating a connection to a phone necessarily begins as master—as an initiator of the connection—but may subsequently operate as the slave. The Bluetooth Core Specification provides for the connection of two or more piconets to form a scatternetin which certain devices simultaneously play the master role in one piconet and the slave role in another.
At any given time, data can be transferred between the master and one other device except for the little-used broadcast mode.
The master chooses which slave device to address; typically, it switches rapidly from one device to another in a round-robin fashion. Since the master chooses which slave to address, whereas a slave is in theory supposed to listen in each receive slot, being a master is a lighter burden than being a slave. Being a master of seven slaves is possible; being a slave of more than one master is possible.
The specification is vague as to required behavior in scatternets. Bluetooth is a standard wire-replacement communications protocol primarily designed for low power consumption, with a short range based on low-cost transceiver microchips in each device.
See the table "Ranges of Bluetooth devices by class". The effective range varies depending on propagation conditions, material coverage, production sample variations, antenna configurations and battery conditions. Most Bluetooth applications are for indoor conditions, where attenuation of walls and signal fading due to signal reflections make the range far lower than specified line-of-sight ranges of the Bluetooth products. Manufacturers' implementations can be tuned to provide the range needed for each case.
To use Bluetooth wireless technology, a device must be able to interpret certain Bluetooth profiles, which are definitions of possible applications and specify general behaviors that Bluetooth-enabled devices use to communicate with other Bluetooth devices. These profiles include settings to parameterize and to control the communication from the start.By chw1September 2, in Ford Focus Club. Hi AllNeed help!!!!!! I have just put a bluetooth module in my car mk2 07 plate the guy I got it from said it came from a 13 plate focus and it will fit,, Well just put in into the car and now my locks don't work!!!!!
Whats going on!!!!! Would a bluetooth voice module affect my locks if its the wrong one or am I pluging it in the wrong place,, help Probably because it's a much newer module it is crossing conections that are feeding back to the GEM. Hi Clive Yes I think your right i'm taking it out nowit did not work still audio mute on my stereo do you know what module I need. Hi Clive yes I think your right going to remove it now do you know which module I need This system did only support bluetooth and Voicecontrol.
The software of this system can not be updated. This system has a fixed language that can not be changed. After about during production of the Focus MK2. This system did support bluetooth and Voicecontrol. The software of this system can be updated. This system is also used on the very first Focus MK3. During production of the Focus MK3 a new type of module was introduced. The modules of this system are backwards compatible with the 2nd generation modules.
The language of this type of module can be changed Most European languages are supported. All part need to be of the same system. I have a Sony stereo gen 2 the one with a green button and a red button, so if I get a module from a focus mk2 up to then it should all workbut do I have to have a voice button on the steering control or just use the one that is there now no voice button or will a module from a mk2.
A Focus is an MK2. This type of radio is used on the late MK2 and early MK2. This type of radio is used on the MK2. Very few people did order this expensive option. This also means that used parts of this system are also rare and relative expensive.Andrea and Vic, Italy Iceland Complete, August 2009 The trip was great.

A status code that reflects the status of the centroid creation. Example: 1 description optional A description of the anomaly score up to 8192 characters long. This will be 201 upon successful creation of the anomaly score and 200 afterwards. Make sure that you check the code that comes with the status attribute to make sure that the anomaly score creation has been completed without errors. This is the date and time in which the anomaly score was created with microsecond precision.
True when the anomaly score has been created in the development mode.
A dictionary keyed by field id that reports the relative contribution of each field to the anomaly score. The dictionary of input fields' ids or fields' names and values used as input for the anomaly score.
In a future version, you will be able to share anomaly scores with other co-workers or, if desired, make them publicly available. The closer to 1, the more anomalous the input data is. This is the date and time in which the anomaly score was updated with microsecond precision.
That is, if you submit a value that is wrong, an anomaly score is created anyway ignoring the input field with the wrong value. A status code that reflects the status of the anomaly score creation. Example: 1 description optional A description of the association set up to 8192 characters long. Each Consequent with a similarity-weighted score greater than 0 may be included in the prediction as long as it is not already contained within the input data. Example: 50 name optional String,default is Association Set for association's name The name you want to give to the new association set.
Example: "coverage" tags optional A list of strings that help classify and index your association set. All the information that you need to recreate the association set. See the Association Set Object definition below.
