I'm thinking about doing the install simply because I never use the climate quadrant on the screen anyway. As long as the controls work, I'll be just fine.

But seriously, go to syncmyride.com and set up an account if you don't already have one. You'll need an empty/formatted 2GB flash drive (though, I believe SD cards also work). Also, I think MFT prefers FAT32 over NTFS. Anyway, log in, click on updates, it'll be at the top. follow the on-screen instructions. Once it's done, start your car, pop it in. If doesn't start installing automatically, go into the settings / APPs (I think?) section and it should start from there. Keep your car running while it installs (you'll not want to do this in a closed garage and but you will want at least 2 gallons of gas and some free time). You can also do the install while driving the car.

Have fun.
Thanks Bro!! And yes, i am very pretty, my mom told me so! Lol!

I like how on the instruction page it refers you to a dead link
http://support.ford.com/sync-technol...c-myford-touch

Besides messing up the Climate Display did it fix anything?

I should have been more specific.

Yes, the software engineer at your local dealer will diagnose the problem and create new firmware.

At least one high level person at Ford (the VP in charge of telematics) really needs to find another job.
The level of incompetency is astounding.

Alan Mulally, are you listening?

I'm sure it does but...

either there was a mistake and the wrong firmware was posted -or- it wasn't tested properly.
