I have noticed that typing into the screen for navigation is a little flaky. I couldn't get it to find some stores inside the mall.

I don't like that the navigation shuts off as soon as you "arrive" to the destination. I'd prefer to exit myself. I'll continue to investigate and see what happens and if performance improves.
Hi Jade

MFT seems to run slowly when the car is new since it's getting all of the databases loaded and stable, things like music databases and phonebook contacts. After all the databases are loaded stable, it should be more responsive.

Once your phonebook has downloaded to MFT, turn off the Auto Phonebook feature, otherwise the system checks your phonebook each time you start the car to see if any new contacts were added, which slows things down after first starting the car.

For the Nav finding stores inside the mall, it depends on what's in the database. In Jan/Feb you'll get a SD card in the mail with the latest map database for free.
