Everyday I hope when I get home that my update will be in the mail but so far it hasn't shown up.
I finally got around to recording a few messages at various speeds, here are my results:
35-40mph: Recorded a 30 second message with me speaking and taking brief pauses. The turn signal "clicks" were very noticeable, but I could hear no road or engine noise, regardless if I was speaking or silent.
55mph: Recorded a 30 second message with the same pattern of speaking/pausing. While I am speaking, there is no background noise. During pauses, I definitely heard wind/road noise.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to perform this same test before upgrading MFT, so I really don't know if there was any improvement. Subjectively, it is much
easier to hold a conversation while driving at highway speeds after the update.
I Hope this helps!

I'm interested if changing the microphone/wiring will have any effect on the background noise...
