    I'll be picking up an EVO this weekend hopefully, has anyone paired theirs with the Sync system yet?

    I have a nagging issue when pairing with my current iPhone, the BT audio streaming just starts playing some random song as soon as they pair, really annoying as this kills the battery.

    the interwebs say that Apple didn't implement this BT profile properly, would be nice to know that Android handles this better.

    Thanks for the help!

    I work at Ford and paired with my F150 perfectly fine. My iphone streamed all the time too....

    If you have any questions about sync, go to www.syncmyride.com and you can live chat with a tech.

    Hello,
    I recently bought a HTC EVO 4g (upgraded from a Samsung Instinct :)

    I have a 2009 Fusion with the old style Navigation system and more importantly, SYNC.

    I can pair my EVO no probs, but I can't get SYNC to recognize my Contacts/Phonebook.

    What this means is that i can't use the SYNC voice activated dialing with commands like "Call Wife" because there are no entries according to SYNC. Does anyone know how to solve this? I THINK that I have to put contacts to "PHONE" instead of "GMAIL" (Or more likely 'in addition to') so that when SYNC looks at my PHONE CONTACTS it doesn't see the ZERO that is there. (Since all my contacts are in gmail...now)

    I don't know how to do this. I got the phone yesterday.

    Any suggestions on how to test my hypothesis, or even better, how to actually fix my problem? Thank you!

    I got my EVO paired with my 2010 Escape and was able to download the phonebook without any issues. I'm having the issue where the media begins streaming immediately and I have to stop the song on the EVO. The other issue I'm having is that it says that the text message option is not supported.

    Actually, this problem seems to have gone away. Now my phonebook is loaded to the SYNC system and I can make voice activated calls. I think the auto-download feature that keeps the phone book up to date must have fixed it over time. My advice for any future sync/evo users is just wait a week, it should load eventually. Thanks.

    I have a Pioneer Avic F700BT head Unit. It basically runs the same software as the Sync system. I put this in my Explorer! i:Di

    At first I could not seem to get it to pull in the phone book information either. I discovered a free utility that allows you to transfer the phone book from the Evo (Or any Android device). Worked for me, I hope this helps.

    It works fine with my 2010 GT500. I've only used it as a phone via Bluetooth. I have a Zune HD for the music end of things.

    I need someone without factory NAV but with sync.

    If you stream pandora (or other music), do the google (or sprint) nav prompts play over the car stereo?

    I just received my EVO 4G this weekend, and I haven't been able to successfully pair it with my 2009 F-350. I'm going to have to mess with it a bit more after work today, since you all are saying you've been able to pair it.

    Well, I don't have a Ford, but the Bluetooth in the EVO syncs up real nice with my 2010 VW Jetta. I realize that Ford has that MS Sync stuff in it, but simple bluetooth sync up should be possible (I'm guessing).

    Paired well with two different rentals I had. I don't remember what I did exactly, but I did have to go in and funk with BT settings in Sync.

    Your Sync system is set to start the media when selected. I just found this in my Flex today. It was starting WinAmp for me, when I wanted to play Pandora. I turned off the function in Sync and now it no longer starts anything playing on my EVO.

    Thanks, David. I got an immediate answer to my problem there. Great resource! BTW, I much prefer the navigation function on the EVO to the slow one in Ford Sync. Too much downloading. Can't make quick changes to the route. Now, thanks to your helpful suggestion, I know how to get the instructions to play over the car's audio.

    Using Dave's advice, I connected with "SyncMyRide" and they gave the answer. After you have started the navigation, tell Sync: "Bluetooth Audio" and it will play through the car speakers. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like it will work.

    According to htc/ford and chrysler, the evo is not yet compatible with ford sync or chrysler's u-connect. I have both and i'm waiting for the upgrade htc says is coming soon. You should not have to mess around with deleting contacts and linking and all that stuff. The system should connect reliably and download your phone book and not disconnet the bluetooth.

    I will rejoice when the upgrade finally arrives.

    Where do you turn off the "start when device selected"?

    I just bought a 2008 Lincoln MKZ with SYNC and I find it annoying that Sync starts playing something from the phone as soon as it pairs up. And, it does not have to be something that I was playing when it paired up, just the last thing that was played even if it was days ago.

    Thanks,
    Walter
