@ lewisra-

It is funny, when I try to post the above link for people over at SMR the mod won't put it up and keeps switching it. Go figure.
Yeah, when you(they) posted that link on SMR I tried to go to it and it took me to a Ford sponsored link that was useless. I'll start refering people to outofmytouch.com, if I can remember it.

Thx for your feedback, folks. I did a Master Reset and it worked. But a pita it is. Thx for the link to the delayed reboot app. Nice!

Yup, doing a master reset is a real PITA and unfortunately only a short-term fix, the problem will return it's just a matter of time.

Ran into a new one (for me) yesterday...

Was driving down the interstate, listening to BT Audio or iPod - forget which one. System kind of froze up so I was expecting to see the infamous Sync screen, except it started working like normal again after a minute or so. Until, about 30 seconds later...

"The application has encountered a serious error. The system is now shutting down."

(paraphrasing - but it was close to that)

A genuine, old-school Windows error box popped up on-screen! With the X in the corner and everything!

Unfortunately it was only on there for about 5 seconds - I tried to snap a photo but the screen had already gone blank by the time my camera app launched.

Anyway, yeah, the supreme quality of MFT continues to impress...

Yup - seen it. It's because the system runs on Windows CE for Automotive.

Oh I know why it did it... just hadn't had the (mis)fortune of seeing a classic error box actually appear on the MFT screen!

Had that happen to me a few times too. On one occasion it popped up, then mft rebooted itself, then it told me my backup camera had an error (i don't have one) and then it rebooted itself again and was fine later. My current problem is that it no longer reads my zunehd, but has no problem reading my slower zune 120.

I'm really sick of this garbage. It's literally shocking Ford put out a telematics product this bad, and its even more shocking it gets hardly any coverage in the press.

On the weekend my MFT froze on my media/ipod screen...even after shutting off and restarting a couple times. It eventually fixed itself Sunday, then later in the day decided it didn't want to play my ipod anymore, it still said the song was playing the time counter kept going up, but it was playing the radio, I tried unplugging the ipod and plugging it back in (even when unplugged it still showed as plugged in) and restarting to no avail, will a master reset correct this?

Personally, the Reboot app has solved more problems than a master reset ever has.

Probably (or run a delayed reboot if you don't want to wipe out all of your saved settings). If it doesn't, try resetting the iPod.
