Hi Garnett,

Ford and Spotify are compatible via bluetooth, we are talking about a Ford specific system which allowed you to control Spotify via the voice controls in the car. This is called "app link" and it does work on SYNC gen 1 but it would appear it does not work with SYNC gen 2.

As for your question, I would imagine any car with bluetooth streaming should be ok :-)

Yes, this information is correct. SYNC2 (MyFordTouch in the US) does not support AppLink and we have no information from Ford about plans for SYNC2 to support AppLink in the future. SYNC1 with AppLink and all SYNC3 systems (just announced in the US) support the additional Spotify functionality that AppLink provides. For SYNC2, we recommend using the standard Bluetooth source to listen to Spotify.

Hi,

Spotify woks only with Ford Sync 1.1 + Applink devices.

I can confirm this because my old car (Ford B-MAX) had the Sync 1.1 with Applink and spotify worked always well.

Now I have a new C-MAX with Sync2 (no applink features are available), and I can use Spotify only with the standard BT streaming.

Note that with the Sync 1.1 with applink yor car will display all the Spotify functions (Playlist, Album, Radio...), with Sync2  you will not have this features.

 

Cheers,

Felice

Hi,

 

For SYNC 2 system, an interface are added to the factory fitted unit, to support "Mirror link" via it's HDMI provided input & then you can have SPOTIFY on the 8"inch screen system on your Ford.

The HDMI interface on Ford Sync2 is available only for the American Market.

For example in Europe (Italy in my specific case), this interace is non available.
