    Any way for CarPlay to work on stock 2013 Limited Sony system?

    I'm new to Explorers. In fact I haven't purchased one yet but I plan to in the coming months.

    Sync Features Not Available in Motion??

    Hello, As you all know, the standard setup for the navigation and phone are set to be not available when the vehicle is in motion.

    Controls in motion and IOS in the car

    First - Will Ford ever do an update that gives drivers the option to have full control of the Sync/MyFord Touch system while in motion? Since the Sync system is still glitchy and slow to respond, I find it easier and faster to type what i need rather than talking into it. I'll end up using my...
