Hopefully (fingers crossed) the next update fixes all the issues and brings back some if not all of the functionality and user appeal that was taken away with the v3 "performance update(my ass!)" that Ford put out.
If it ain't broke ...don't fix it, especially when the fix is way worse then the original. IMO of course so check into it and you be the judge. Good luck!
I don't have all the details yet, noahsfocus, but I do know the Outside Air Temperature Display is coming back with the next update!

Don't get me wrong, I do love my car, and MFT is great, for the most part. Everyone who gets into my car comments on how cool it is...there's just a few things that get on my nerves. For example, Bluetooth Audio no longer locks onto my phone unless I've selected another option before going to BT Audio. I'd reset the system, but it's not enough of a hassle for me to wait for the system.
I didn't take it that way, wantz12, but I appreciate the clarification. Are you using an iPhone by chance?

It's a nice feeling.
No problem, slow3v, that's exactly why I'm here.

Hey, 2012sel -

I haven't heard anything yet, but I'll be sure to post once I do. Announcements will also be made here:

I admit I mostly love my Focus, but I can't help but note when I've had a different experience. Since my update to v3.02 in April, I've had probably 8-10 reboots. I know for certain I had 3 in under a week when we took a 2,000 mile road trip last month. So it's not all roses and sunshine for those of us with MFT.

I will agree with your statement that I have had less reboots since the update but this actually turned out to be more of a curse than a blessing. There were times when it was acting up that I wish it would have rebooted on its own to get it more stable, at least for a little while. It forced me into way more master resets than I ever had to do w/the previous version and I got so sick of re-pairing my phone, re-entering/saving stations, and so on that I actually sucked it up and finally downloaded (and use semi-regularly) the delayed reboot app, something I never had to do w/2.11 (nor a fuse pull nor or battery disconnect, both of which I have still never done w/the new version either in fairness).
Hey, TiPilot & copernicium112 -

The system maintenance screen occurs when the SYNC module determines the current amount of data usage is degrading its performance, and a reboot will re-optimize the system. Some users may experience the reboot every day, whereas, others may never see it. It also depends on several factors, such as:

If you have the Navigation option and how much you use it.
How many devices you plug in on a daily basis (i.e. iPod, MP3 player, cell phone, etc.).
Which cell phone/carrier you have and how many applications you have running in the background.

Hi, DrRay -

We're looking into expanding Turn-by-Turn Directions and the Vehicle Health Report feature, I can't speculate on availability, but 911 Assist is currently available in Canada. Hopefully you never have to use it, but it's great to have. In the event of an accident in which the airbag deploys or the fuel pump shutoff is activated, 911 Assist uses your paired and connected phone to call a 911 operator.

If anyone has additional questions, feel free to PM me. :)
