Changing iPhone or smartphone contacts can help you improve accessibility with the Ford Sync system.
When it comes to most smartphones, the first step is to enter the contact data correctly.
If you open a new contact list, enter your first name of your contact in the "First Name" field. And then click on the contact in the last name of the "Last Name" field. Sounds simple enough but here's the case … if you put the name John Smith completely on the "First Name" line and then, if your phone and Ford Sync system is set up to search for a last name, then guess what? That's right, you can say, "Call John Smith," and the Ford Sync system can not find anything in your phone book. So take time to change your contacts by name and how they are typed.
When it comes to iPhone 5, be sure to go to your Settings icon. Scroll to the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" field and drop it. Then scroll down to the "Contacts" section. Notice "Order Order", you may want to put it on "Last, First," then check "View Order" and you may want to do it "First, Last." Otherwise, you could press the voice button and say "Call John Smith" and the Sync system might say "No such contact found." But if you said, "Call Smith, John." I do not know about you, but that would make me crazy to say last name first and then first name last.
Notice what kind of phone number you are entering in the contact … enter their work number in the number "Work" and the mobile number in the "Mobile" numberbox. Then the right way to set up the call for long synchronization, "Call John Smith at work." Why? If you do not, just say: "Call John Smith," then the system will return and say "Numerous contacts found, say 1 for work and 2 for mobile." Again, take some time to change the phone book to do so so that you can call without notifying you of synchronization.
And you knew that when you first start calling your phone and allowing the system to download your phone contacts, what the system does is your index (contact). If you make additions or corrections to your phone during the vehicle, the Sync system will not be able to "see" the updates until you turn off the vehicle, completely disable your Sync system, and then restart (or restart) the Sync system. Then it will reinvest your contacts and "see" the updates.
For those with the MyFord Touch system, you may want to contact your network operator, tap the Settings tab, navigate to the Manage Directory tab, and then tap Reload Phone Book.
Watch when it comes to using contacts with all capital letters. The sync system needs to reconsider your contacts with the text you entered into the contact information line. "John" is viewed from the system and then it can listen and say "John." If a contact is entered as "JOHN", the system can only "find" the name if you say "Call JOHN." So please avoid entering your name in all capital letters.
It's wise to take time to change frequently called contacts and make the information so that the Sync system can easily understand it.
