What problems are you referring to?

If you run MyFord Touch 3.5 and use an iphone streaming app like Spotify or Rdio premium the tracks will skip because MyFord Touch sends skip commands to the device somehow. This is a problem that didn't exist in 3.0.2. Speculation is that incorrect track times being displayed are tied to the problem somehow. This does not occur when plugged in with the USB.

I will try to let you know how that works tomorrow after I get back from the dealer.
Hi, bvrplzr -

Did you end up visiting your dealership today? In the future, shoot me a PM anytime you have SYNC or MyFord Touch-related questions. I may be able to save you a trip.

Thanks for the info, TehMark. I've alerted our engineering team of this concern.

I ordered my new Nav card and it arrived the next day! I then downloaded the new software from syncmyride with no problems. The update begin instantly once I inserted the USB drive in the car. It took 43 minutes. It rebooted several times - everything went effortlessly.

Afterwards the voice activation button did nothing. I turned off the car, opened the door, then restarted the car - still no voice activation. I went thru the menu and did a master reset. (I hate to do thus because it erases everything). Now everything works well. I am not noticing any major - except that my climate control now works again from the screen and voice activation. There are some minor graphic updates. Still nothing major. I am also looking to see if the 2 shortcuts on the right side of the steering wheel would be programmable again. So far no luck. I will post more as I experiment with it.

How long does 3.5 take to do on your own?

with the help of FordIVTteam i did find that my system is up to date. I did not notice any changes. I still can not connect to my wifi. I do not know why I would need to but if it available on my car I would like it to work.

Hi, BlueIce -

Depending on which version you're currently running, the update should take about an hour.

Is your keyboard grayed out, bvrplzr? Please confirm.

I installed my update late last week. Overall, I've noticed some improvements (POIs actually show up on-screen when I'm asked to make a selection instead of nothing loading and Sync Lady yelling at me to choose, and the Shuffle LED finally works on my iPod!) and some issues.

Biggest problems...
- Nav route calculation is dreadfully slow at times. It took over 2 minutes to calculate/load a simple, 20-mile route on Saturday. And that was using a Favorite location.
- Nav in general is slower than before... takes longer to load map when you first switch to it, there's more lag when it's animated/moving while driving, etc.
- Voice commands are suddenly very laggy. Press the Sync button, and then it takes 3-5 seconds for the chime to play so I can say the command. Pre-v3.5.1 the chime happened nearly instantaneously.
- Candidate/selection lists still don't appear sometimes - if I say to play a song and it asks me to choose, no list pops up, but Sync Lady still asks me to pick one.
