Service Car That Services!

Due to upkeep and maintenance cost along with a devastating life altering illness I found my self in a position of no longer being able to afford my 2000 Chevrolet lifted ZR2 S-10. I, with a bit of sadness sold my ride. In need of something dependable, long lasting, comfortable, and affordable I began my search for an ex-service Ford Crown Victoria. I found one 5 years newer than my truck. 50,000 less miles than my truck, for a low price of 30% less than I sold my truck for. An Air conditioning that works, a smoother and quieter ride, and very clean for an ex service car. My illness makes me noise sensitive , light sensitive, vibrations irritate me. I needed a ride that would be worry free for an extraordinary low price. Ford delivered on all my needs. There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for my Crown Victoria and Ford. I feel blessed to have things work out for me and to actually improve on all things where my ride was concerned. I really need to double my MPG, and Ford has those available, yet not really in my budget. So we’ll worry about that another day.
I am hooked on Ford now, and if I can’t drive a Ford because of either not having one, or not having Gas for one, then I only pray for good enough health to ride my bicycle.

We recently purchased a C-Max SE with Equipment Package 201A, so just the basic Sync services. (No Sony, MyFordTouch, or navigation) I was originally dismayed that no prepaid phone carriers appeared in the list of Sync wireless providers and devices. We seldom make or receive calls while in the car anyway, so it wasn't a deal-breaker if our phones didn't work. (We're retired, and don't have the budget for iPhones, 2-year-contracts, and pricey monthly service.) I'm a computer geek at heart, and love to tinker, so undaunted, I plunged ahead and simply tried to pair our two TracFones (an LG420G flip phone and an LG840G semi-smartphone) via Bluetooth. Both phones connected, loaded the phone books, and dialed out without any issues. I haven't done extensive testing, but once connected via Bluetooth, the 'Sync Lady' works just fine, including voice dialing from the entries uploaded from the phone address book. (When I learn the permitted commands, Sync Lady will be much happier!) So, there needs to be an Unofficial database of User-tested devices, somewhere online in Sync forum (probably the best location), where it would be convenient to go to One discussion area and see all the user reports of user-tested devices that do work, even though they're not "officially" tested and supported by Ford.
Create a SYNC database of compatible devices tested by users
