Got in to leave about 7 hours later and didn't see the "scheduled maintenance" screen but it had obviously rebooted (first indication no street location under the compass on the home screen which always happens after a crash/reboot or master reset). Ran through indexing again and gave me all the safety "use voice while driving" talk, etc. etc.

So if you wait long enough it just does it all while the car is down? I've just seen others say they come back and see the reboot screen which is why I am wondering.

Oh yeah, and the reboot brought all my Travel Link/Traffic back to both subscribed and displaying on the map (meaning this is definitely an MFT glitch and not a problem with Sirius).
I've seen that if you wait too long you won't get the maintenance screen, not sure how long that is. I just assumed it didn't run the "scheduled maintenance", I've always reinstalled without checking. I'll try it next time if I can remember. And thinking about it I've not heard the "use voice while driving" speech in several months. hmmmm.

Give it a try if you get some free time and see if you can determine if it did run or not after waiting for a decent chunk of time. Like I said, definitely seemed to have done its thing for me as evidenced by the return of Travel Link/Traffic, rescan of the index, street location missing from the home screen, and so forth. If it does continue to function this way it could be awfully convenient as when it acts up I can just start it when I pull into work and run it and hopefully upon leaving work all is well again (at least until I have to do it again but with the number of master resets I was up to, way more than w/V2.11, it is nice not to have to re-pair phones, re-set things like DST, re-set radio presets over and over).

Tried it when I went to lunch today. At the beginning of my 5 minute drive to lunch I loaded the app. Was at lunch for about 50 minutes. When I restarted my car the MFT took a bit longer to come up, did some weird things on the display, but no scheduled maintenance screen. It did fix the not receiving text messages problem I was having on drive to work. Though I've had this issue fix itself after shutting it off and let it sit for a while. It seems the way it acted upon start up that it did do the reboot. I'll try it again when I get problems that usually don't fix themselves.

I've been using my USB drive to carry my music. I copy my itunes music folder directly into the root of my USB. itunes is saying I should have a bit over 1000 songs. MFT is showing only about 700.
Im assuming there not showing up because of DRM. Is there a program out there that will crack or convert all those pesky DRM files for me?

My POS crashed 3 times yesterday alone and wiped out another USB stick. Reset the clock three times. Sync'd my phone three times. Everything is as it should be according to the "techs" though.

Have you ever done a master reset, or pulled fuses, or used the delayedreboot.cab? If not, i'd try those in reverse order.

I thought it was Friday the 13th, not Groundhog Day.
