    Default Ford/Microsoft Sync question

    Just got a 2011 Ford F150 Supercrew with the sync system and I'm loving it.

    What I'd like to know is if there's a way to make my Droid X default to Slacker Radio rather than the stock audio player for Bluetooth Audio streaming? If I manually start Slacker before activating the Bluetooth audio streaming in the truck it's fine but if I enable bluetooth audio first my X just fires up the music player and starts playing the last mp3 I had played previously.

    Any ideas?

    I have no such system; so, can't help. I am curious how good the music sounds when played via Bluetooth to your sound system.

    Are you able to use the speakerphone and hear the caller through your car speakers?

    Thank you.

    Sounds great actually and yes the sync system auto lowers the music when an incoming call is received then resumes when you disconnect. I'm very surprised how well it works.

    Id love to have an answer for this one as well as I have a Motorola Roadster bluetooth carspeaker that I use to transmit my music via its FM transmitter to my car radio and a Sony Ericsson bluetooth headset that I have the same problem with. Both have built in audio controls that if I use them instead of the ones on my phone cause the default stock music player to start playing and thus overriding any player Im currently using be it Pandora, Google Music, Double-twist etc.

    And congrats on the new truck btw, Ive already got my F150 SuperCrew picked out for Christmas.

    Try "Media Button Router" in the market - it seems to partially work so far. It won't start slacker radio for me but at least it prevents the stock media player form auto launching. My Sync will even say "play with slacker" but I still have press the play button on my phone. It's a start at least...
