Does this mean a new MFT version for 2012?

I still haven't received my upgrade so I'm behind the curve either way.

I may or may not have downloaded it from dropbox when the first guy on this site that got it in USB form uploaded it for us.

If you havnt updated yet you are one of the lucky ones that probably has a good working MFT v2 sys ...don't do the update without doing some research or at least check it out (v3 sys) first. When did you get your car? You probably already have the latest v3 release.

I have the v2 by choice because the v3 is total crap ...It's a stripped down, full of bugs, POS! If by chance you do still have the v2 you should leave it alone at least until the next release and only after seeing it in person and reading reviews here to see if it even works and what issues people are having with it. Hopefully (fingers crossed) the next update fixes all the issues and brings back some if not all of the functionality and user appeal that was taken away with the v3 "performance update(my ass!)" that Ford put out.

If it ain't broke ...don't fix it, especially when the fix is way worse then the original. IMO of course so check into it and you be the judge. Good luck!

Maybe I'm the only owner who thought v2 was horribly broken and v3 is at least slightly less horribly (terribly?) broken. Still broken, no doubt. In our experience v3 does "what's it doing NOW?" things less often than v2.

To the basic premise of the thread--a great new MFT that fixes all past sin is coming Real Soon Now--we've heard all this before. Before the release of v3.

We are generally pleased with most things about our FoFo. (After serveral shop visits for TSB and FSA actions.) But MFT would be THE reason, at this point, we would not consider another Ford. The FoFo was our first Big Three car in almost 30 years and the first "American" brand car since I bought my '78 Fiesta. When I get in the FoFo and it randomly picks what to play or see Sirius Weather show nothing or... I ask myself "what was I thinking?"

If your ver2 MFT is working good then imo I would leave it the way it is until the next update is released ... I still have my ver2 and it works great and prefere it to the stripped down, full of annoying bugs v3 MFT.

Hoping Ford gets it right on the next software release so I can upgrade and use the new nav system but in the mean time the ver2 sys is great and I personally prefere it. Once you upgrade there is no going back so at least look into it before doing so. I went and did a demo at the dealership in another focus with the v3 system and was appalled with what I saw so thankful I did that before I made my decision. I would suggest doing the same.

Probably. I mean, even the 2011 Fiesta has Applink. But to be honest, I seriously doubt I'll use any Applink features at all.
