How to Play Music Through the Ford Audio System

You can connect a number of different mobile music sources to your Ford audio system and enjoy every track in high quality stereo sound.

Depending on the audio system, you can choose from the following music sources:

USB Storage Media

Just insert a USB stick in the USB port (for example) and choose it as playback source on your audio system’s menu. You will see the file structure of your USB stick on the display. Supported audio formats: MP3, WMA (DRM-protected WMA files will not play) and WAV.

Apple iPod/iPhone

You can operate your iPod or iPhone easily and just like you usually do using the Ford audio system. For the best operating comfort and optimal sound quality, we advise using the original Apple USB cable. 

Bluetooth® Music Source

Via the Bluetooth connection, you can stream music tracks wirelessly from your mobile phone.

How to Activate Your Preferred Music Source 

Connect the music player you want to use to your Ford audio system.

Select the desired source (USB, iPod or Bluetooth) by pressing the ‘AUX’ button repeatedly until you see it displayed, or use voice command and the device you selected will automatically begin playback.

Tip: You can also use the USB port to charge your mobile device.

Mobile music functions are only available with the ‘USB/iPod’ equipment package. In this case, your car will be equipped with a USB port, which is located, depending on car model: either in the glove compartment, the centre console or the armrest compartment. uses cookies and similar technologies on this website to improve your online experience and to show tailored advertising to you.
