why is the MFT screen on that page funky looking with nav? I don't have nav so i don't know but should the clock be floating mid screen like that?

Feta, no... the pic in the lower right looks very messed up. The upper bar is all screwy, and the clock/compass are in the middle for some reason...

Yeah that's what I'm referring to... haha, wow... that's just... something else, way to go Ford.

Also, if you check out the more info about "four ways to experience SYNC" the voice-activated Nav (2nd picture on the screen that comes up) literally has a system almost IDENTICAL to mft save for a few select differences you can see as you scroll down and it lists the differences.

You have bluetooth, radio, services/nav, and climate (it doesn't say climate on the list below but I think that's referring to voice commands, because my buddy's GT500 nav system can definitely control his climate)

The system isn't laid out as easily as MFT is, but everything is there, and everything works, well.

Why not just recycle that code and use a new GUI? Sigh....

That's not MFT, that looks almost identical to the factory Sync/NAV setup in our F150, which is not MFT, just a large NAV screen with Sync services built in..... (most of which, do not work in Canada)..
