My IT / Programming experience suggested to me that I do that, so I did. Turns out later the Ford rep in this forum actually said it was indeed recommended. Perhaps you dealer did it, but if it were me, I'd have done it myself to be sure.

Mine is still working quite well by the way. Perfect, always? No, but very rare issues, and very minor.
Nah, I didn't. I assumed (and I know assuming is wrong) it wouldn't be necessary. One would think with a new APIM and a fresh MFT install it indeed would not be necessary. I did several after the update install but to no avail. I'm still going to maintain that the programming is crap, nothing more, nothing less. A master reset does not fix the disappearing street location, a master reset does not fix the garbage voice commands, and so on and so.

Agreed. The magical answer to everything (but in reality nothing). That was the first question they asked when I brought it up. "Did you do a Master Reset?" Yes, more than one I explained. Hence the reinstall attempts and new APIM the dealer tried, again, which do nothing.
