Hi - just bought a 2016 Zetec B Max - so far very pleased - it replaced my old, but much loved Zafira.



My newbie issue is with Sync. I've paired my phone OK and get audio from the speakers when using Google Maps. But - when I put the phone on charge via the USB it stops the sound from Google maps (via bluetooth). So I cannot charge and use Google maps at the same time?? Seems weird to me and it's highly likely I've configured something wrongly.


Advice will be much appreciated


Many thanks

Hi Kevin
Here's the order that works for me:
On car screen - Turn on radio; then press phone; then devices

Make sure you're connected to the correct mobile phone
On mobile phone, start Gmaps, enter destination, then start
The car speakers should then say the first instruction
'Turn left in 300ft ' or whatever
The car screen will show it as a phone call to your mobile and then a disconnect message will show when the message has ended
Hope this helps

I suspect the car is seeing the phone as a usb memory device.

I would get a usb charger adaptor (plug into 12v accessory socket /cigar lighter) from poundland or similar, and use that.
also this would charge the phone at a much higher rates than the fitted usb socket


why did you start 2 threads with the same problem???

Hi Gremlin
Apologies for the delay in replying- been testing the car on a trip to Cornwall! All worked well including your idea on using the cigar lighter to charge - thanks for that. Two posts? Brain fart I'm afraid :)
