Ford F150
so you can blast your tunes the whole ride.
Before you can play your music through Bluetooth, you’ll need to connect your mobile device to the vehicle. Ensure Bluetooth is activated on your phone so that you can pair your phone to the system.
Once activated, select Phone, then Add Phone on the F150’s SYNC multimedia screen. You may need to enter the unique PIN on the touchscreen into your mobile device to initiate the pairing.
Next, select the Ford SYNC system on your phone’s Bluetooth screen. Your mobile device will confirm the pairing with the Bluetooth system once completed.
Now that your device is connected, you can stream music from Apps like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music throughout your journey.
The bonus? You can change songs and volume level through buttons on the steering wheel or screen of your Ford to keep distracted driving to a minimum!
