spiderpig The 3.5.1 was actually pretty decent in the updates. Felt much better and it's cool to have the temperature on the main window. The only oddity is that when I'm at home and I try to connect to the WIFI in my house, it won't allow to put anything but numbers for the password. So I can't connect it to the WIFI.

gsxrboy I did the update this past Friday from 3.0.2 (no issues with that version) to 3.5.1, so far so good, no issues reported. I am listening to RDIO over bluetooth and it is working just the same as before, no issues seen so far. I will know more this week once I have more time to play with it during my commute.

Merrigan I'm getting my update done on Thursday. Hopefully it's worth it. I haven't had nearly as many issues though as everyone else though.

Sent from your mom's house.

Edit: Ok so I did a master reset and tried again and it worked. One thing I have a question about: I saw somewhere it showed if the seat heaters were on in the climate quadrant. Mine doesn't seem to do that and I looked thru all the menus. Anyone know about this? It's not a huge deal but cool to have nonetheless.

Seat warmer indicator is not for the Focus. I believe that is only on the Edge. It's because you don't control the seats with the center screen.

TehMark get ready for your bluetooth audio to break

peridigm It fixed all of my issues with unlabeled buttons, slow boot, and random update messages. However, the BT audio still sucks and I think voice recognition is worse than it was prior to the update. Fortunately I don't play BT audio much and I rarely use voice commands.

erogers10287 Thanks guys...I'll post after I get it done and voice my opinion lol.

e30og 3.5.1 is pretty clean, you should see big improvement.

Really hope Ford doesn't stop there though

feta_mgp Probably going to go from v3.0.2 or 3.2.2 to 3.5.1. If your center display doesn't show the outside temp next to the clock, then you're on 3.0.2 and can expect to get the temperature display there. Outwardly that's the first thing that you'll notice. Other than that, voice commands are reportedly (though not for everyone) MUCH better. I can attest to this; my voice commands haven't ever been bad but they're much better with the latest update. They're also simplified, not needing you to specify input or type, i.e. if you want to play an artist on your iPod, just say Play (artist) or Play (song), keep in mind that if the artist has a self titled album, it's going to beep at you and it wants you to specify though it doesn't pop up on screen with any prompt.

Just play with it once it's updated and learn some of the new stuff, it's pretty neat. Every update gets closer to where it should be.
