Just a quick update..I got the mft update on Wednesday and it seemed to have resolved all of the wind noise issues with the Bluetooth!! I was using it all day yesterday and everybody said that I sound great. Hope this helps.

I just upgraded MFT and called a co-worker going 50mph, no complaints at all.

Next time I'm out, I'll try the voicemail trick and let you know how it sounds.

Wow if thats the case that would be freakin Awesome!.

THis is why I wish Ford would release a Change Log so we can see what the new version of MFT actually fixed or improved, etc.

Oh by the way Robbiew. Before the upgrade did you ever have anyone complain of the road noise?

Handsfree was absolutely unusable above 25mph.

My conversations consisted of me talking and the other party saying:
What..? WHAT...? WHERE ARE YOU??

After about 3 calls I stopped using the handsfree altogether.

Today, I talked to my manager while driving on the highway and never once did he pause and ask me to repeat.

I have the MFT update and my complainer said it still sounds the same. Which is road noise at highway speeds. I seriously doubt a software update would change the way a mic sounds with road noise.

On the bright side I am still testing using foam on the cabin side of the mic and my complainer said it sounds much better at highway speed.

Yeah I have my doubts too that the MFT upgrade would even address the BT handsfree because the MFT update was not vehicle specific. For all we know the Taurus, Fusion, Edge, etc all have great sound quality on the highway and no customer complaints.

Robbie - If you get a chance to dial into your VM or something where you can play back your own msg from the car. Please let me know what your thoughts are. I know your only going based on what you've experienced and I would really like to think that the MFT had something to do with the improvement.

This is listed in the MFT Performance Upgrade Changes:

- Improved phone call quality and voice recognition using enhanced noise and echo cancellation technology

I plan to do a voicemail test at various speeds and post my results.
