Hello All
I'm new to this forum so I'd like to say hello to everyone. I'm just about to buy my mates 2010 Mondeo Titanium 140. It has the Sony 6 CD DAB system in it. I've been having a mess about with the ipod & iPhone 5 connectivity. There is the AUX & the USB sockets in the glovebox. The ipod works fine with an after market Y lead but I'm having some problems with the iPhone 5. Streaming via bluetooth is fine but connecting via cable is problematic.
The phone can be seen as an ipod and you can select tracks, albums, artists & playlists but there is no audio coming through the speakers. This is connecting with the USB to Lightning cable. It's also the same with the Y cable

Having read various threads on the forum I understand there is probably a firmware update I can do using a USB stick (Nov 2012 update). How do I find out what firmware is already on my unit?

Can anyone confirm that an iPhone 5 works just using the USB to lightning lead please?

The way it is at the moment & I think this is since the last ios update on the phone but on the Alpine head unit in my other car, you can now control the music through the phone instead of it being locked to be only controled via the head unit. This is also the case in the Mondeo. If I hit the play button on the iPhone you get a split second of sound and then it pauses. I'm sure that this can work.

Any ideas please?

Thanks all

My wife has the Sony dab unit in her 2012 focus itanium and I use my iphone 5 by using the standard usb to lightning lead plugged into the in car usb port and it works faultlessly.

I would think that it should be the same on the Mondeo unless as you say, you need an update.

Hi RizlaSteve
Yes I'm chuffed now. It is right though that when the phone is connected through USB that BT streaming is greyed out? That makes sense I guess as it means you can have both an ipod and phone connected at the same time. ipod through USB and then phone to stream through bluetooth. Is that how it works in your wifes Focus?

The same device can't be connected to USB & BT stream, but I have an iPod connected to USB & my iPhone will BT stream music & also be used for phone calls.

Mine works through the usb lead for music and via bluetooth for handsfree calling.
