    Hello there,

    I managed to get my OP5 to sync with my Ford Focus yesterday, the car seems to be able to recognise my device, and my phone seems to recognise the car and pair seamlessly, however, whenever I try to play music from the Bluetooth audio in the car, from Spotify on my phone, no sound comes from either side. It registers that a song is playing, and allows me to use all functions, but no sound comes from the car speakers. Am I doing something wrong? Please help!

    I had the same problem, now I'm not even able to find Spotify's application via SYNC with Applink.
    SmartDevice Link doesn't turn on which makes it impossible for the car to find the device, problems started after the update to Oreo and now everything is dead.
    The OnePlus 5 connects normally with the car but SmartDeviceLink seems to not work.
    Tried with a Samsung S5 and everything was going good, so the problem is in the OnePlus.
    Plus, I tried formatting the car' SYNC system and made a reset of the OnePlus but still not working.
    This is so frustrating.

    Same here with 5T and oreo. I can't get Ford Sync 3 to find any apps in the phone, and it was working before the upgrade...

    Any ideas?

    Not sure about that as its stopped to work after phone software was updated, not car software.

    Same boat, on 2 Ford's, so for sure it the OP5. I have updated SYNC to the newest version of 3.0_18025 and still no apps other that the Lincoln Way app. This sucks because I used to use like 4-5 apps easy from the main screen.

    Any more progress with this? My OP6+ connects fine to my new Transit Custom with Sync3, everything is up-to-date. But I can't project maps onto the Sync3 screen. Phone calls work fine, as does streaming audio.
    Tried with Bluetooth & USB and both together.

    The Sync3 recognises the phone, and puts a "maps" button on the screen, the button does nothing. Other people have said launching Google Maps on my phone should automatically display over on the Sync3. It doesn't.

    Not tried with any other phones yet. I have an old LG & brother has OP3.

    Android Auto is installed & up to date.
    All settings on both devices are correct, as per other people who have it working with Samsung devices.
