What operating system will work with Sync?

Recommended Posts

I had an Iphone and just lived with the fact that I had to plug it in via USB in order to use voice control for music and directions, I recently got a Pixel 4 that is powered by Android and am still unable to use voice controls for changing music or getting directions.  Seeing as it doesn't work with either of the operating systems I've ever heard of what type of phone does it work with, Huawei?

Hi Wissman. More information is needed to even begin to try and help you. Vehicle model, model year, SYNC version etc.

 

Also, what instructions did you follow to connect? Have you checked your Owners Manual and followed the instructions to connect to SYNC with Android? Have you gone to the Lincoln Owners website and followed the instructions in the How-to videos?

 

Get back to us and good luck.

I have the Pixel 4 Plus, and for navigation it works just fine with Google Maps or Waze.

 

If you are trying to control the Sync system, it will not do that as Android Auto takes over the system.  So controlling the Sync system will not happen.

 

You can though, have it control what ever system you have installed on the phone... like the various streaming apps... (provided they work in AA)

You can turn off AA in the settings, but then you would just be using it to charge, and you would get just the Sync system to control.  Can't have it both ways.

 

I've read that Sync 4 will (or should) work both ways... but only for newer vehicles.... and it's a ways away....
