I had also gotten in the habit of turning off music before turning off the car (for two reasons, first I figured the less it was initially trying to load all at once on the old version the better and second as it is remote start weather I didn't see the point of having my car sitting there playing music while it was warming up). Pulled into work today (I was on the Entertainment screen) and hit the power off using the physical button, as I always had. When I hit the power off button, it kept playing music but just switched the view to my home screen. Hit power off button again and it shut the music off and immediately turned it back on, hit power off again and it shut the music off and immediately turned it back on again, fourth time was a charm apparently as the music went off and stayed off.
Ugh! (My new overused word in this thread.) Album art was my favorite feature on the iPod screen and I can't believe they downsized that to accommodate the 3% Mr Magoo crowd. I'm gonna say it again, hey Ford designers, just about every other device and OS out there has multiple modes for those that want rich content and those that are visually impaired. It's not helpful to listen to the 10% complaining loudly only to make hard changes (not options) that disappoints an even larger group.



Got home late again last night and was going to begin the download from syncmyride.com in preparation for my weekend upgrade but the site was apparently swamped...took 3 attempts to even login and the download would not start. Gonna try again tonight or fall back to the posted "copy." I need to get it installed before I read any more reports and change my mind. Trying to stay on old software versions is a futile proposition...
