Me too - my subscription ends in a few days. I got it because it was nice for playing music offline when T-mobile drops my reception to 2G for about 10 minutes every morning (Racine, WI) and I only have 3G about 80% of the time - if I can get ANY data.

But since I'm switching to Verizon as soon as the new phones come out, I shouldn't have to worry about that nearly as often. I'll probably just use TinyShark.

Did the update from Syncmyride.com... downloaded but it took a GREAT deal of time once it hit 99% for the download.. Anyway.. ordered the new navi card from the site on a Saturday.. got it on Tuesday .. not bad.. All seems to work well.. and now they put the temp back on the touchscreen too. so I don't have to squint to see what the outside temp is any more.. SO far it's not giving me any problems..but.. I kind of learned to live with all the other crap that went wrong with the last version.. We shall see.. We seem to always be Ford (and Microsoft's) Beta Testers don't we... They should pay us all for doing it... hahaha

Kind of a weird issue after installing the update, and searching hasn't yielded any results.

After the update, I plugged the ipod back in and everything seemed normal. After a long period of indexing and building voice commands, I tried using Sync. The problem is, Sync now gets every request to "Play track X" wrong. Every single time. I was having about 95% success rate prior to this. Sync will recognize the command, but it will just play the wrong song. AND it will play a different wrong song every time.

To get even weirder, "Play artists X" works just fine like it always had. I had no issues at all before the update. Any ideas on things to try?

EDIT: I've tried removing my ipod, changing the songs around and having it re-index, but issue as persisted for two weeks now.

Okay, I just spent some time in the car trying to diagnose this further. First up, I did a master reset. This didn't change the issue.

After the reset, Sync was set to 'Novice' mode. Sync would verbally confirm back to me the correct track name, and then play some random track. Weird.

Well, that got me thinking. I checked my ipod, which was set to shuffle songs, and turned that off. Success, awesome! It now worked great. HOWEVER, as soon as I set shuffle back to on through MFT, it's right back to how it was.

Which really sucks. I like having my ipod going through shuffle, and if I hear a song I want to listen to, then I simply tell Sync to play it. Now it seems like the only way to continue to use it like that is to add the extra steps of telling Sync to turn shuffle off before requesting a track, and back on when I'm done. Such a dumb way to operate - I can't believe they'd take the time to update how their shuffle functionality works with this update. Right? There has to be something I'm missing here.

I just downloaded the file from the URL in the PDF file from the first post in this thread. It downloaded an exe file from a Dropbox account. I am a Mac user so I just dragged the exe file onto my USB stick and thought this would perform the update. I followed the instructions on the PDF, doing the master reset and then inserting the USB stick but nothing happens. Am I supposed to execute the file and then place whatever files it produces onto the root of the USB drive?? I got in my A4 card I ordered at syncmyride so I'm ready to do this update. Someone please let me know how to get the correct files onto the stick/what the name of the files are.
Thanks!
Derek

Yes, you must extract the .zip to the thumb drive.

It has been a while, it may have been a self extracting exe. I definitely remeber extracting files to the thumb drive.

On a Mac you must reformat the drive before installing the MFT software on in every time. If you open Disk Utility you can do a quick format. You must choose FAT32. After that go to syncmyride.com and download the software directly to the thumb drive.

For some reason, if you don't reformat the drive, even it it was previously used or an update, MFT will not recognize it.
