Since v3 was *reinstalled* in my vehicle, stability has improved. I also prefer it's interface over the prior version. It's far from perfect though, and I've noted (and reported) newly introduced glitches with this update.

Since we're pulling statistics out our collective pucker points, I'd say for every 10 bugs they fixed from 2.11, 3 new ones were introduced in the latest release. Progress, sorta.

If I knew then, what I know now - I'm fairly certain I would have skipped MFT and settled for the base stereo system and a Garmin GPS when I shopped for the car. I had been waiting for the Euro Focus to come to North America for years.
That said, I believe you would be part of the 5% who do have legitimate issues. However I strongly disagree with your conclusion that we now have 30% more new issues with MFT 3.0. (Not sure if I understood your statistic there). This is certainly not true my case.

And on a final note, my good sir, my pucker point has never been collectivized. [bootyshak
