You sound like a diligent worker! To connect to Bluetooth on a Ford Transit from 2014, you’ll need to use your Ford’s SYNC multimedia system. Before getting started, ensure Bluetooth is activated on your device, then follow these steps:
- On the vehicle’s Sync menu, tap “Connections” and “Phone.”
- On your device’s Bluetooth menu, scan for your Ford’s SYNC system and then tap to connect.
- Your phone will ask you for a six-digit code that will match the display on the SYNC screen.
- Tap YES to confirm and begin the pairing process.
- Once confirmed, your mobile device and Ford SYNC are connected via Bluetooth.
Setting up Bluetooth on your Transit is a great way to keep your eyes on the road and avoid any distracted driving. Regardless of where you live, distracted driving tickets are no joke, and they come with steep penalties. While there are no state-wide bans on cellphone usage while driving, most states do ban texting and driving, and if you’re caught doing so, you could end up with a hefty fine and potentially a license suspension. On top of that, you’re also subject to higher car insurance premiums with a distracted driving ticket on your record.
So the best thing to do is get your phone connected to your Transit’s Bluetooth and take advantage of its hands-free features!
