I tried to Bluetooth to my Bose headset.Nothing I tried made a difference in connecting.I am hearing deficient and when in the passenger seat would like to listen to the radio and music.I realize that this is a no no when driving,but when on a trip it would be nice.Any guide would be appreciated.

Hmmm.... I do not know this to be a fact, but in looking at the owners manual, it would appear that the BlueTooth is only active to connect phones to the car to use the car audio to play the phone. It doesn't look like it is meant to connect the car to bluetooth devices to use external audio.

Would it be possible to connect an external device to a phone, then connect the phone to the car's bluetooth? I don't think that would even be possible either simply because most phones don't have external jacks nowadays...seems it's all bluetooth connectivity .....if you have music on your phone, you can play that, or switch to radio....I think those are the only options, but I'm just guessing here.

I suspect the Sync Bluetooth system protocol is set as a receiver only to prevent exactly what you are trying to do as a safety (legal) measure. You are wise to only attempt usage as a passenger but if the system was capable I'm sure Lincoln's attorneys would be concerned about enabling drivers to do same.

You could test by checking if the Sync Bluetooth system recognizes your headset (leave your mobile phone out of range). if it recognizes perhaps it would connect but doubt do to previous comments.
Would be interesting test to connect your phone to Sync via the USB connection for vehicle system play and connect your headset to your phone via Bluetooth to see if phone drivers will actuate both at same time.

You can of course directly connect your phone to your headset to listen to whatever you have downloaded anywhere and forgo the Sync connection.

Thanks for all the info.It's all about trying to hear the radio over the MKC bluetooth to my headset.So far it sounds like it's not possible.
