I like the second USB port behind the dash. I can plug in my IPod and still have the one in the armrest to charge my phone.

If you can put up with this guy he has pretty much gone over everything in his US spec Focus Titanium in his videos, which has been very useful to me. OCD FTW!

This is the best way to get green lights. If you're in a hurry, you get red lights. I think it's the inverse law of traffic movement.

This is a corollary to the Fourth Fundamental Truth of Life "Never let a machine know you are in a hurry."

If you aren't in a hurry the machines will speed your progress.

That was the original reason for having a full size sunroof. So you could throw passengers out...

So much better than using SYNC's shitty layout. I hate that so much!! txting wont get ppl in accidents that stupid menu layout will. give me a freaking scroll feature with more than one song showing on the screen. should have had Mac program SYNC instead of Microsoft
iOS 5 will give you track info via bluetooth as well. should be pretty nice. My fav currently is using spotify over the bluetooth connection. Have fun!!

He said the key has to be turned to ACC. Actually the key needs to be turned to the ON position. The screen and warning lights don't come on in ACC mode. You also don't need to hold the button for 5 seconds before turning the key. You just have to be holding it.

My wife was driving in the rain. The car has the auto sensing wipers and MFT. She was playing around with the touch screen and MFT said it was limiting her options because of weather conditions.
