MFT 3.5.1 is working perfectly with my Galaxy Nexus Phone with Jelly Bean 4.2.1

I have compared MFT with two vehicles that I have personally tested. The first vehicle was a 2011 Land Rover LR4 fully loaded, the system on there was so bad, that it didn't have any voice commands, the display looked pixelated and the touch interface outdated. He had to pay around $100 for a cable to connect his iPod, it does not support USB for that device, though it has a usb connection.

2010 Porsche 911, its screen again is outdated, not easy to navigate and though it connects through bluetooth it is very limited to what it can do, again no voice commands.

I updated yesterday, all seems to be fine. Not any dramatic changes, Shuffle is still not working like it should.

I'm still on 2.11 and still lovin' it! I heard the key issues were result of interference from the Sirius weather app, so never renewed Sirius and issues gone. Of course I still get the occasional reboot too, but that's Sync for ya.

Still have my album art and wallpaper too!

No issues with my previous version of MFT, now I've got issues with satellite radio and my iPhone 5 required a master reset to pair bluetooth.

What kind of issues with satellite radio, not sure I've heard of any.

3.5.1 introduced problems with text messaging for me. I'll receive a text and active MFT and it'll say, "Text messaging is not supported by this device," after I've received the text!!! If I press 'listen' on the screen, I can hear the text but options to reply no longer work; they did before 3.5.1. This is the case with both my Galaxy S3 (running Jelly Bean) and my new BB Z10. Grrrr!

The problem isn't development...it's quality assurance. They should have had more people testing to verify and reproduce bugs...and then the balls to actually spend the time to fix those bugs.

I don't have experience with any versions but 3.5.1 because it was installed prior to purchase, but I'd be happy if the reverse camera guide was stable and the keyboard would work (It's grayed out). Also, every phone with MAP should work. Period. These things should have been tested before releasing 3.5.1 Take care

You shouldn't assume that all phones implement the MAP protocol in a correct and/or consistent manner.

mine works good with my iphone 4s. my only problem is I can not connect to my wifi due to greyed out keyboard. I have seen a few cars with worse systems also a friend has a bmw the screen is out of date and has no voice command and no music thru bluetooth and you have to pay for a cord to connect ipod/iphone. another friend has a toyota camry that seems to allways have problems with his freezing up.
