09 F150
Hi,
I’m coming from an 09 F150 with Gen 1 Sync. The new 12” screen looks amazing. Would anyone be able to post some screenshots? I’m interested in seeing:

How many presets are there on the radio in total? My 09 has 10 per source (Sat 1, Sat 2, FM1, FM2, etc.

What does the screen look like with Bluetooth Audio? My 09 only displays “Bluetooth Audio” on the 2 line screen.

What do the apps in CarPlay look like? Thinking specifically about Google Maps, Music App, Text Messages/Contacts.

Never having CarPlay, any idea if you can connect 2 phones at the same time? (ie Work iPhone and Personal iPhone)

Thanks!
Jim

I only have one photo for now. This is from an auto show I went to in December, they had a 2021 F-150 Limited to play around with.

The Apple phone was hooked up to the Sync4 via the regular USB under the center stack. This is what it should look like when playing music.

This photo is Bluetooth audio when connected to my iPhone:

This shows the number preset pages available. Look right above the “zone lighting” button and see the 6 dashes. 6 is the maximum number of that you can have and you can adjust that in the settings.

So you can only have six satellite radio and/or FM presets in total?

In my picture where satellite radio is active you can see there is a row at the bottom with 5 preset buttons. If you swipe that row to the left you’ll get a new row of 5 buttons, swipe again for another 5 and so on, for a grand total of 30 available presets. Pretty cool. ?

Sorry for not being more clear in the earlier post.

If 6 rows of 5 buttons is too many you can adjust that in the settings.

30 is adequate. I read someone posted (on the Facebook page, I think), that you could only have like eight or nine total presets shared between AM/FM and SiriusXM. That's absurd for a truck this advanced. I have about twenty plus presets on my external satellite radio receiver in my current car. Thank you for confirming this for me!

No problem at all. Glad to help. ??

You can have a mixture of different source channels on each 5-button preset page.
