Pair your phone with Microsoft Sync

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hey folks Brian Cooley. On a 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid, I'm going to show you how to pair a Bluetooth phone to this system. This applies to a lot of Ford and Mercury vehicles that have this Sync-based navigation head unit. Now you start off with the hard button here. This is easiest for me instead of using voice commands just press phone, and you see it says no phone connected so you have settings available to you--press that. Now here's the add button, hit that to add a phone obviously. Here's the pass key we're going to use; the card gives us a prompt there, now I go to my phone and it will be different than every phone of course, and make sure your Bluetooth is on and then start your pairing process on the phone. So I'll start searching now with my phone and it should find this pretty quickly here and there it is. It says Sync so I'll go with that and here comes my code; and I okay it one more time on the phone and notice that I have more than just hands free calling there. I've also got an AV or stereo audio connection so this is going to be able to send high fidelity streaming to the car because it's a sync system and not just handle that kind of low fidelity hands free calling--that's nice. Next, it will ask if you want to download your Phone Book and Call History which will vary somewhat phone by phone. You'll want to make sure you've got a phone that's fully compatible if you expect all that to go well. You can hit that and if you have a lot of contacts, allow a lot of time. This doesn't go all that quickly. Now once you've got your phone screen up and you see your new phone is paired, you've got a few toys here under the Advance button you can play with. Here's where you connect your phone to be a part of the advance features of the sync system like 911 Assist or the Vehicle Health Report. You can set Automatic Download of new contacts right here on or off. I would do off personally and here's a cool thing about Sync. Of course it will give you text messages from text to speech in the car and here's where you can come in and tweak that. Now as you notice, my phone is not supported so it's always important to go to the service counter before you bank on your phone working with a particular car whether it's new or one you're buying used. One last thing, notice under the Quick Dial settings here in the Phone Menu you have the option when you go there, to save from Phone Book or Call History or you can populate those manually. And of course lastly, how do you get a phone out of there especially when you load it up with all the phones it will take--I think 12 is the max on this. All you've got to do is find a phone you don't want in there any more, same place where you paired it and just hit Delete and that will take away the phone as well as all of the associated data that went with it. So that's how you pair, unpair and manage a Bluetooth phone on a 2010 Milan Hybrid or similar Ford products that have sync and the advanced LCD nav unit. I'm Brian Cooley.
