MFT 3.5.1 bugs

I thought I could start a thread specific for MFT 3.5.1 so anyone could report any bugs or glitches they find. Then ford could use the information to improve MFT on the next update.

Please try to keep it clean and no ranting or raving (you catch more flies with honey than vinegar) and keep it 3.5.1. specific, if you want to get 351 there is another thread for that.


I'll start, dealer installed 3.5.1 on 11-20-12 and so far all is well.

I installed this update myself (via the PDF) and I can safely say my concerns have been all fixed now!

Climate was "broken" from the previous update (3.2.2 I believe) and has come back to life now and work perfect.

All bluetooth calling was very messed up previously, with any version. After I installed this one I can perfectly hear and speak via the car now and it makes me happy.

I have yet to find any problems now with the MFT not working and I hope it stays that way! Just thought I would post something positive because I know the MFT gets a bad rap most of the time :)

Good luck with this new version!

Mine works pretty well except when I start the car. MFT wants to start at the first track on my usb no matter what I was previously listening to.

Mine did this for a week or so after my involuntary "upgrade" to 3.0.2 last spring. I tried everything I could imagine to resolve it (master resets, fuse pulls, etc.) with no success, then one day it spontaneously rebooted itself for no apparent reason and the problem went away.

Mine has done this randomly, even before 3.5.1. I was hoping TSB 12-10-15 would fix it, but it didn't. Though it did fix the random FM channel I'd get when switch back to FM from a different source.

That's been my experience with 3.0.2 also.

Mine does this also, but randomly. I talked to the salesman who is the sync guru at the dealer and he said that entertainment portion of MFT is supposed to default to the usb on startup. I asked if that was true then why is it random? His response was the usb stick might be loose or something in the console could be bumping the stick and dislodging it causing it to not be recognized.

On the bright side if this happening mostly on 3.5.1 then that means ford is getting closer to getting the MFT to operate as intended, because mine never did this until 351.

On a side note if it is true that mft defaults to the usb on startup, then I would request that on the next update, that this be changed to default to the last selection. I mean who wants to (or can remember) to unplug the usb stick every day then plug it back in when you want to listen to it.

I'd find a new guru.
