I wasn't able to test out my USB source and the ability to say just say "Play <name>" without saying "album" or "song" or whatever yet because I had to do a reboot last night (to get my Sirius traffic back) and my player was still indexing this morning so no voice commands. I'll test when indexing/BVC are complete.
Since 3.5.1 is still on TSB and no "official" announcement has been made by Ford over at SMR, or anywhere else I can see, I can't help wonder if this is really what they are talking about, or at least forms the base for what they are talking about.
^ This! Exactly my thinking as well, I have tested most of the new aspects of 3.5.1 and it does everything mentioned in the article (for the most part anyway... it does have a tendancy to "hang" once and a while). I agree though, this is most likely just the "official" announcement of 3.5.1 (or maybe a "refined" version of it anyway).
