You mean logging in?
Yes, it appears that it is down.
Funny thing is, it is rejecting "valid" credentials.

"Our system has experienced an error. Please try again."


Ford Owner Site is down too.
Maybe Michigan, now as a "Right To Work State", is striking on all fronts...
Or maybe 'Anonymous' is anti-Union and DDOSing the Ford websites.

The climate control will not come off of "Auto" (temp) and the power windows will not Auto-Up/Down, Interior light dimming when entering/exiting the vehicle even seems like it fades out at a different rate than before. What the heck happened?
Auto climate control seems to be working OK for me; I cycled through all the modes without a hitch. Can't comment on the interior light dimming - seems normal enough to me.
I can however confirm that the "auto" window control has moved from the front to the rear door windows. WTF is up with that?

-Hold button down until window is all the way down and keep holding the button down for 3 seconds then immediately continue with next step
-Hold button up until window is closed and continue holding button up for 3 seconds
- Problem should be solved.

Update notes for 3.5

Today, we are proud to announce the release of a new software update, available immediately for many SYNC® with MyFord Touch®/MyLincoln Touch (TM) systems. This new software will provide the following enhancements to your current system:

• Return of the outside air temperature to the 8 inch display
• Updated phone pairing process
• Enhanced voice and screen destination entry for SD Card Navigation (if equipped)
• Simplified voice commands for music
• Enhancements to voice recognition
• Updated SYNC/device compatibility

Please note that the update is not yet available for MyFord Touch/MyLincoln Touch vehicles equipped with Navigation. For these vehicles, the software update requires a complimentary replacement SD card. We plan to have your replacement SD cards, as well as the new software update, ready for you in January. We will make an announcement in the forums when you are able to request your replacement SD card. Please be aware that if you perform the update without the replacement SD card in a Navigation-equipped vehicle, your Navigation system will be inoperable.

If your vehicle is not equipped with SD Card Navigation, you can log in and check for updates now.

We look forward to sharing an enhanced MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch experience with all of you.


I've gotta say, I'm currently running 3.2.2 and thus far since I've had my car, I haven't had any issues with anything MFT related. So, I believe I'm going to leave well enough alone and just wait until (hopefully) Ford releases AppLink for it. Then I'll update, unless something cosmic comes out in a new release before then.

Peace, Defender
Smart move; 3.5.1 has issues.

I had 3.5.1 installed prior to delivery about 1 month ago, so I have no experience with prior versions. However, everything seems to work well. I'm still learning how to make the functionality benefit me; yesterday found the short method of making calls and changing radio stations, thanks to the posters here for that. Going through the 3 step process (i.e., radio, sirius, watecolours) was a pain.

They ALL have issues. 3.5.1 definitely seems to have remedied a lot of them. Sure issues are still present but the system seems (I'll venture to say unanimously here) more responsive and more stable overall compared to the last two releases.

Anyone know what this means? Found it on the FordEtis website when I put in my VIN. Does that just mean 3.5.1? Cause I already have that installed.

Yes, that's the official 3.5.1 upgrade all dealers shall perform when they have it in for other service.

I think that one's just AT&T though.
I'm with T-Mo and they offer the Lumia 810 and this htc device. I went with the htc as it was a bit smaller, ulitilzed the space for the screen better and a lot thinner. The Nokia looked like a small tablet to me (okay if that's what you're looking for).
