Oh cool.

HAH, here's dumb question. Is that what the green arrows on the highways are when I'm in navigation?

I probably should go read my manual LMAO.

Yes, on the old version you get 3 different colored arrows Green, Yellow, & Red. The new versioon hightlights the road with the colors.

I don't know what kind of deal Ford has with Sirius but they seriously need to pull their heads out with the inferior Sirius traffic/weather crap.

I believe that for regular Sync vehicles, when using navigation it is actually using Inrix as the traffic data source and Inrix is wayyy more accurate, up to date and informative than Sirius is ever going to be.

It blows my mind that the MFT version of the product is inferior in so many ways to the non MFT version.

I can't speek on a national basis, but in my area I find the traffic data to be quite accurate.

It appears both down in the Ent. screen red bar and on the full Ent. screen for song title when you launch that screen. When it goes to the next song the title updates and the question marks are gone. Strange looking for sure.
That's a standard character indicating you do not have the font required to display the characters being called for. Are there symbols or special letters in the song title?

No, and it was displaying fine before going into the Nav screen. Happened twice so far. Just three each time.

Already posted this in another thread but figured I needed to spread the joy:

Nasty new bug that I never saw with v2.11 but got today on the new v3. I selected FM radio and low and behold, the station frequency does not appear in the display. I chose a different preset, no go, direct tuned a station, no go. Went to the climate screen and back to Entertainment. Still no go. Turned car off and went into the store, came back out and it displayed until I chose a new preset and its gone again.

Not being able to see what station I am on is pretty bad state..

I had tried Services to give me direction to the store to see if this is working better in v3 which it seem to be. It was quicker and corrected when I went off-route which it never did in v2.11 So its a case of one step forward, once step back. Maybe using services was just TOO much for the system to handle to be able to display the radio station. I smell my first official fuse pull with v3 only a week and a half in. It was only a monthly event on v2.11 .

'mattphoto' confirmed in the other thread that he gets something similar.

3.0.2 Bug... If I place a cell phone call (from the Touch Screen or by Voice Command) with Entertainment input powered OFF, the FM Radio turns ON at the completion of the call.
