SYNC3 is great, but so many levels deep you have to push the arrow (back) button several times to get back to "home"

am I missing something? or can Forscan fix this?

Isn't there a home button in the top left corner?

yes, at times... if you go into apps, you lose it - you have to hit a 'back' button to get back to a 'home' button

Toadster I'm glad you brought this up, it drives me friggin crazy! I like the Apple CarPlay, but I cannot figure out how to get back to the "Home" screen to save my life. I've tried everything! I always end up having to press the media button, then quickly press the "AM" button at the top left of the screen. Then I'm having to cycle through AM 1,AM 2, FM1, etc. It pisses me off. Am I missing something?

If you want to get to the main sync screen from car play you press the car play home button then the sync icon on the home page

Still too many pushes - looking for a one button push or double push

^^^ That's the only way I've found to get back once you're in car play. It's like you're in the Car Play app, then have to hit the Ford Sync app button to get back to Sync...can't really go back directly to Sync cause you're no longer in that application when you're in the Apple Car Play mode....

Thanks Dude. I'm an idiot, I don't know why I never tried that. I always assumed that was a different app. Thanks again
