So my 2013 Edge was at the dealer for the 3rd time because the Bluetooth stopped working. According to the dealer, this is an issue because I use Apple products (iPhone 4 and have an iPod plugged into my USB port) and they cause difficulties with the Microsoft computers in the Ford. Does this sound right to you?
The rest of the car works fine, but I’m supposed to believe that I’m going to have to deal with my BlueTooth failing to link after a couple of weeks of use, which can only be cured by either a) disconnecting my battery or b) returning the entire sync system back to its factory defaults? I’m having real trouble believing that Ford didn’t bother to make sure the sync system didn’t work with the most popular smartphone manufacturer before they released it. Any ideas about what I should do, or should I just suck it up and reset the system very frequently?

I have had problems myself but didn’t realize it was because of a Microsoft/apple software issue. I know Ford is constantly working on software so I wouldn’t surprised to see an update in the next couple of months. I’m sending this chat to Ford to ask them. I will also be in Dearborn with Ford next week and will find out. email me at lou at carlist.com and I will let you know what I find out. put washingtonpost.com in the subject line. Email me and I will send your info to Ford.
