This is actually the predecessor of MFT, this is the original SYNC w/ Nav system found in the Gen1 SYNC vehicles like the Mustang. The one I used this past weekend was in my buddies GT500, and it worked great, Nav was smooth (resolution wasn't great though, lots of jagged edges on the map) the media player was great, the EQ bars are really cool and are actually functioning real time, not just an idle animation while music plays. You can control your phone, climate, the Nav of course (and SYNC services I'd imagine) and as the picture shows your media as well.

Why they didn't just re-use code that worked is beyond me, but this system is older and works better.
