MFT 3.5.1 bugs
 
I thought I could start a thread specific for MFT 3.5.1 so anyone could report any bugs or glitches they find. Then ford could use the information to improve MFT on the next update.

Please try to keep it clean and no ranting or raving (you catch more flies with honey than vinegar) and keep it 3.5.1. specific, if you want to get 351 there is another thread for that.


I'll start, dealer installed 3.5.1 on 11-20-12 and so far all is well.

I installed this update myself (via the PDF) and I can safely say my concerns have been all fixed now!

Climate was "broken" from the previous update (3.2.2 I believe) and has come back to life now and work perfect.

All bluetooth calling was very messed up previously, with any version. After I installed this one I can perfectly hear and speak via the car now and it makes me happy.

I have yet to find any problems now with the MFT not working and I hope it stays that way! Just thought I would post something positive because I know the MFT gets a bad rap most of the time :)

Good luck with this new version!

Mine works pretty well except when I start the car. MFT wants to start at the first track on my usb no matter what I was previously listening to.

Mine did this for a week or so after my involuntary "upgrade" to 3.0.2 last spring. I tried everything I could imagine to resolve it (master resets, fuse pulls, etc.) with no success, then one day it spontaneously rebooted itself for no apparent reason and the problem went away.

Is this update on the Syncmyride site?

Was getting some weird results today on my long drives trying to play songs by voice. Figured since I had some driving time I would initiate a reindex. iPod w/about 6200 tracks, exact same song setup I had pre-3.5.1. Indexing took 1 hour and 15 minutes. Building voice commands took 1 hour 20 minutes. over 2 1/2 hours all in. Used to take about 25 minutes all in (20 minutes indexing, 5 minutes building voice commands). I think I had a similar issue post-3.0.2 and I had to restore and reload the iPod. Gonna try that tomorrow and see. Hope it is not 2 1/2 hours always because I have to do so many reboots just to get Sirius traffic/travel link back that I don't want to have to log 2 1/2 hours of driving time before I can use voice commands for music again each time.

Sirius traffic/travel link-MFT integration still seems messed up and unreliable.

That is all I have noticed so far. The other bug fixes, voice command fixes, and things like BT call quality fix have been terrific though.

No it is dealer-only right now. If you don't have Nav there is a link in the pdf up in the first post of the thread in the TSB section related to this update. You can get it from there and install it yourself. If you have nav you have to go to the dealer because you need a new nav card (A4). Totally worth it though IMO. Lots of fixes in this one!

Glad to hear all is well, I Bleed Ford Blue! I'll definitely be checking this thread periodically.

Hi, SaToX -

Due to the need for vehicles that have the navigation option to receive a new SD card, the software is currently only available through the dealership. In the meantime, we do not recommend installing the software from any source except for a certified Ford or Lincoln dealer.

Hi Jaclyn, just to let you know I was at my dealer this past Monday to have this done and they told me it didn't apply to my vehicle and that they couldn't figure out what was broken with MFT 3.2.2 when I described the climate control issues I was having.

I decided to do the update myself and went to the dealer this morning to get the new V4 card. They at that point told me, they would like to do the update...... I said too late you had your chance on Monday, I already did it, now all I need is the card for my Nav. Needless to say I got the nav card.

This is nothing against my service adviser, as he has been fairly good so far, but he becomes the face for the techs that apparently cant look up a TSB, or figure out the clearly broken MFT.


END OF RANT. [rolleyes]

Thanks for the follow-up, SaToX. In the future, give me a shout and I'll contact the dealership to explain further. If you'll like to file a complaint, shoot me your full name, VIN, and the name of the dealership. I'll get you in contact with my partner who handles these issues.
