    Hey Guys, I have the following problem. If I plug my iPhone 6 via USB it tells me "no tracks found". I'd like to play my music from Spotify.
    I have a Ford Focus Turnier from January 2012.
    Will that update fix the issue? Will I be able to use spotify with the USB port?

    Thanks for the help!

    I find with Spotify on my Focus is that I have to open Spotify on my phone and get a song playing before I plug my phone in, and then when I plug my phone in afterwards it works.

    Hi, i have BT Nokia on my car and a sony player , some how player(firmware) isnt compatible with BT, because i see on the phone like Ford Audio but when i try to put the code or pin (1234 & 0000) doesnt work. On phone display appear like " the pin or password isnt corectly", some one sais me, to by a new generation (3rd) of sony. But how can i recognise a 3rd sony generation about firmware??? Somebody knows what firmware have 3rd generation of sony???
    My car is Cmax from 12.2008. And the BT module doesnt have a usually usb connection just for dealer upgrade.....and is installed from factory default.(voice in france).
    Firmware of actually sony is 4.05.00.

    Hi Guys, i've registered to the forum after making the update like explained. I have a 2010 ford smax which is listed amoing the cars supported by this software. I've successfully made the update, got the message saying that it was complete, no problem. But when i restart the audio system nothing has changed, i still can't broadcast my audio from iphone to the autoradtio by bluetooth. I check the CD/AUX menu and still can't see Bluetooth in the list. My autoradio looks exactly like the one on the picture in the beginning of this topic. It has bluetooth activated, my iphone is paired, calls are working but not btaudio...

    Hi
    Thanks for the info above. in Australia with a 2011 mondeo titanium diesel and their was a read error.. could not read names in phone book on sony original bluetooth radio. Followed above and had issues reading the 8GB capacity USB and just said initialising on the radio screen.. so tried a 4GB capacity USB.. and it started updating.. then I inadvertently started the engine. The screen read updating for 30 minutes... so I stopped the engine and the radio and removed the 4GB USB. Then started the process again and followed the directions more closely and after 20 minutes or so the screen changed from updating screen to successful update and the radio came on. I now have access to the phonebook... :) but still trying to operate the voice commands.. Maybe it is me aussie accent. :) Anyway, thanks for the tips and if you get a read error.. try another USB. cheers Aussiemondy

    I too just wanted to say thank you for this fix. I've searched a lot for a solution to what seems a common problem and have been extremely frustrated by the lack of clear answers. This has worked 100% for me and I can now hear the songs (as well as see the track listed) through my Mondeo Mk4 Sony DAB. Howard you're a hero!
