I was one that mentioned this. I think I might have also figured out a way to avoid this bug. I used to immediately shift my car once I push the start button. When doing that it seemed like 50/50 chance my overlays would be gone. If, however, I wait until the boot animation completes on the MFT to then shift the vehicle into reverse then I have yet to have them disappear. It's almost like if you kick the camera on before the preferences have been re-loaded then they default to off.

I am experiencing this as well.

Thanks. I will check that out.

Repeatable issue:

While listening to USB music source: Press Entertainment on MFT screen, press FM, and no sound will be heard from selected radio station. User must select a different radio station to get sound back.

Just got back from vacation and overall 3.5.1 is much better than previous versions but there are still some bugs. This first one on my list is especially annoying.

1. The fixed and active line settings for the rear view camera keeps resetting to off. I have had to reset it back to fixed and active at least five times in the past week.

2. I set my navigation destination to my home (about 250 miles away), went to a gas station to fill up, turned my car off, and when I was done filling up and started my car back up, the navigation showed my destination as Main Street, 3.5 miles away.

3. I have a thumb drive with all of my music. I selected an artist to play and selected all albums. I then selected the first song on the list (alphabetic listing). I then selected shuffle all songs. It played 8 songs out of 74 and was done. When I repeated the same thing, I looked at the display and the first song showed it was playing song 66 of 74, not 1 of 74.

Big indexed libraries of songs on thumb-drives trip up MFT bad.
Pretty pathetic in this day & age, when you stop and really think about it.

It's not just MFT it's sync in general. My fusion with standard sync did this also when I plugged in my ipod with ~6K songs. I eventually got rid of the entire factory system and now have a kenwood HU that works flawlessly with the ipod.

My clock stopped working yesterday. It was 6:43 for the entire 35 minute drive to work this morning. If I hit the clock setup menu, it will update, but then when back to the home screen it freezes after a minute or two.

I do not believe it has anything to do with big indexes, mine only has 214 songs The way I've found it shuffles is that it shuffles before it plays and then starts playing the first song in the alpha/numeric list by tag. After my USB has been indexed, it will always start on a song that has the tag(not the file name) of #4 Detroit Rock City(first in alpha/numeric order). Then shows it as song 23 of 214 for example, it's not always 23. I recently changed the tag on this song and now it starts with another song, but never 1 of 214.

*Just* got it back from the dealer with 3.5.1 installed.

Entering WiFi keys that are not completely numeric is now BROKEN.

It still has the three buttons to select Alpha, Numeric, or Symbol entry. Only if you change away from the default Numeric keypad to the others, the keyboard displays all disabled. You can shift, caps lock, whatever. You can see (dark grey, disabled) the keypad. You just can't enter any data. Change to any of the others, including the numeric one which was working, and same thing.

Just spoke with Ford MFT Support. Agent said it was "a known problem" with no fix at this time. He said dealers were aware of it and they'd let us know when there was a fix. I'll take that bet.

Mind numbing. This was worked in every other version over the last year. The "best" version yet and this is all of a sudden broken.
