I'm thinking about doing the 3.5.1 update myself and living without Navigation for a month or two.

Our 2011 Edge is showing as having an update available, the 2012 Focus has nothing available.

The joys.

Are the 3.2.2 and 3.5.1 updates going to play nice with the current SD cards or am I SOL?

Sync My Ride has never liked my Focus, doesn't really care for my reported installs or anything.

3.5.1 is a hell of a lot better than 3.2.2 Marginally better than 3.0.2

I was lucky in that I failed to note that 3.2.2 was there, until it was gone. 3.0.2 has been pretty good - yes, the verbal commands stopped working once (master reset solved that), and it's done some funky things with my iPhone 3GS on USB for a time (it might have been drinking I think), but I'm overall happy. I will do 3.5.1 but not until Ford sends it to me - downloads are sometime kind of flaky. I'll take marginally better!

When I was in on Tuesday for an oil change, I asked my tech to update me to 3.5.1. After discussing it, we decided I would do the update (since I had my thumb drive at home) and he would supply an A4 nav card.

Anyway, got home, downloaded 3.5.1, updated, installed the new nav card, and everything has been great since.

Easy install.

3.2.2 was pulled off for your Focus, caused issue with climate control in some early build Focus's. I would not install 3.2.2 in your Edge. Wait for 3.5.1 for both vehicles.

You will need to get a new A4 nav card for 3.5.1.

If you run a Vehicle Health Report for your Focus, it will update your SMR with your installs.

3.5.1 has not "offically" been released so you won't see it on SMR.

Hi, everyone -

I just wanted to jump in and clarify some information. We will not be sending the update in the mail, but it will be available for download on SyncMyRide.com in mid-December (for non-nav vehicles). Vehicles with nav will be able to download the update and order a new SD card in early January. We'll be notifying owners by mail and SYNCMyRide, so make sure you start checking your SYNC Account in mid-December.

If anyone has any additional questions, shoot me a PM.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Jaclyn

Dealerships have the A4 SD cards for navigation now. I had them apply 3.5.1 and give me a new SD card the last time I brought it in for the DCT/strut brace clunk/rain sensing wiper dry swipe/RDID IA key issues.

3.5.1 works better, but still has many problems. At least it is usable this time.

My MFT recently has decided to no longer play nice with any device via Bluetooth, and I'm also getting a really annoying buzzing/vibrating sound from the speakerphone area on the overhead console. Should this be enough reason for the dealer to install the update? The small issues I'm having with this car after owning it for just 8 months are really starting to become frustrating...but I'm trying to stay positive and not become one of those whiners.

Also, random off topic question: Is a blown speaker covered in the warranty? I'm still well within factory warranty and even purchased the extended warranty, but this seems like something they may omit from that. Can't believe the Upgraded Sony system could have this issue already.

Thanks in advance!
