The file they linked to is over 700 MB, so if it was just a few bug fixes I don't think they would require you to essentially reinstall the entire system software for this would they?

Doesn't apply

Touch / MyLincoln Touch technology. The MyFord Touch / MyLincoln Touch Software Release v3.2 will address the following conditions and provide all previous performance upgrade enhancements:
*Missing radio preset text
*Radio stays on key off after opening the door
*Voice recognition inoperative - pressing the push to talk button on the steering wheel does not initiate audio prompt "please say a command"; only Listening icon is displayed
*Sirius travel link fuel prices show as unsubscribed when it is subscribed"

The bad news is they say "NOTE: The 2012 Focus and 2013 Escape are not a part of this TSB notification. The new software is still
undergoing testing and available updates will be subject of a future announcement."

This is per TSB 12-9-1. So it should be available soon, I believe the software is already available to the dealers, but they aren't supposed to put it on a Focus or Escape yet, but if its the same software why the hell not?
Why a thread that doesn't apply to the 2012 focus ???

Because its the exact same software and if its being released perhaps a few brave people could attempt to install it before the general release for the Focus.

That and it was meant to let people know that it should be available fairly soon.

My guess as to why it hasn't been released for those two vehicles is they have a different level of MFT than the other vehicles. The Escape and the Focus have the reduced MFT implementation (no dual LCD screens in front of the driver), so presumably they need to make adjustments for that.

Since that's not what was said by IVT with version 3.0.2 I doubt that this is the issue. They said the software the same in all vehicles that ran MFT regardless of features or other content.

Wow, 2012silversel, a '12 Focus and a '13 Escape, I'm jealous! What's going on with your Escape? PM me some details and I'll look into it.

For those of you who haven't heard, our engineers are currently working on an update. I don't have an ETA for availability, but one thing I do know, the Outside Air Temperature Display is coming back! Future announcements will be made in our SYNC Owner forum, stay tuned:

I agree. Ford should not release a mft fix for the focus until ALL bugs and concerns are addressed and the mft works as advertised w/o any problems. I'd rather wait a bit more for a permanant fix

With all due respect, you obviously have no idea how updates for technology work.

Yeah, as much as we complain it's just impossible to be 100% perfect. There has never been anything, hardware or software, that was 100% perfect and there never will be -- we are not gods...

How about a "MyFord" update as well! That's even a little buggy!

The jump in decimal point is considerable... would I pin hope on it? Probably not, but it's a possibility...

Now there's proof. Windows 7, OS X, and other personal computer OSes have massive download sizes. For something as small as a self-contained touch unit, it's not going to be that big unless several functions were being upgraded...

Then again, if MFT is one program that branches off per car model, like a unified/universal driver, then one's hopes should go back down a notch...
