This happened to me on 2.11 a few times. If you have a favorite set with the voice name tag enabled and then do a master reset (or in this case the upgrade) it will delete the favorite, but keep the name tag stored in some inaccessible place. For me I knew it was doing this because when I asked it to go to one of my old favorites it acknowledged the command and then never did anything. So It knew the name, but there was no place associated with it.

The solution I found was to go into favorites and save your point under the same name as your old favorite. So if you had set the old one as "Work" then go back in and recreate that favorite using the same name. At this point if you try to enable the voice tag it will error and say that another place already exists with this name. This is a good sign. Now force the system to reboot, I use the reboot file that someone had posted on here a while ago which tricks the system into rebooting itself, I'm sure a fuse pull would work too.

When the system boots back up it should re associate the stuck voice tag with the favorite you just created, solving your problem. You can check this by going into the favorite and the voice tag should display as enabled. The system must do some sort of check when it boots and verify the favorites and voice tags.

Like I said I have had to do this at least twice. I hope this works for you. In the future what I have found is go in and disable the voice tags on all your favorites before doing any upgrades or resets.
thanks for one solution.

i still want to try my battery disconnect as i have about 20 favorites saved. don't feel like force rebooting mft 20 times or so to fix everything, rather just recreate it all with no associations.

one thing i noticed with mft v3 is that it didn't allow me to put spaces in between the words when i tried to name my favorites. it would force me to name places:

"movietheater" as opposed to "movie theater" (thus not allowing me to name some places the same name i had them in v 2.11). as another poster put it, just recreating my favorites on v3 turned into frustration.
