Ford SYNC and Apple do not play well together.
YOU HAVE A FORD ???Does anyone have problems with the Uber Driver app and audio with Ford SYNC?
I use an iPhone 11 with Ford SYNC and keep running into a problem where after a while, notifications and turn-by-turn instructions come across the stereo as a phone call. This stops music from playing instead of ducking the music.
Earlier this year, I had an iPhone 6 that had this same reaction and I thought it was that phone's age, so I upgraded and still had the same problem.
I recently rented a fully loaded Ford Edge with a different version of SYNC than my Focus and still had the same problem on that vehicle as well while using the Uber Driver app.
So, that makes 2 different iPhones on 2 different versions of SYNC having the same problem. Makes no difference if I use Bluetooth or USB.
