It had a voice interface that understood only about 50% of what I told it, which is about on par with the focus Nav, but the Garmin would routinely lock up or go into thier equivalent of a BSOD and that required pulling the battery to reset. In my case the Focus electonics are an improvement.

This is to say that Ford aren't the only ones with poor exception handling, and inadequate testing.
