That doesn't really help people with MFT now, it's talking about the future replacement. Which, if anything, should make people more frustrated since it makes it more likely they will just drop support and focus on the replacement. Of course that depends on when that actually comes out.

Oh, I know that. This gives all who love their Focus', but hate MFT some hope and justification for trading in their cars.

Personally there's enough justification looking at the current model without looking at possible future versions.

I would hope the current cars could upgrade... Win8 doesn't seem to take much more to run than Win7, atleast the preview builds I've used. And our car IS running Win7 Auto, so I don't see a reason that the entire system couldn't undergo an upgrade. Even if it cost something for current gen Focus owners to upgrade to a Win8 powered system (the upgrade would likely be an all day affair, and change everything) it would definitely be worth it to me and a step in the right direction.

The only issue I can see as far as that goes is the Metro UI will most likely be more beneficial using a capacitive touch-screen rather than the resistive screens we have in the current MFT models.

Here's to hoping though!

Thanks! I tried to hold out as long as I could. I was going to quietly live with the bugs of MFT2, until it gave up almost completely.

Another thing I noticed, MFT3 looks extremely gray... like there are no colours on the screen in the corners. They used to be really vibrant, but now it almost looks monochrome. Is that normal?

My lady is holding out with MFT2 still... we'll see how long it goes!

Got the USB in the mail earlier this week in Montreal, Canada. did the upgrade myself last nite, took about 40 minutes or so. Everthing went well. I am really sad that they took away the wallpaper fonction. It was a nice way to personalize your car and express your moods. Not a big fan of the 4 quadrants...I'd like to have clean looking like before, with my wallpaper. What's the use to have a wallpaper if its to be cluthered with stuff. Screen is more rapid tho, less lag for sure. I hope it stays that way.

I think they are referring to the previously available function to have the MFT screen only display the wall paper instead of the four quadrants all at once over the top of the wall paper, but that might just be my interpretation of what they meant, not that you couldn't install a wall paper, but they said what was the point if its going to be covered up by the controls.

Exaclty what I meant: The wallpaper fonction that allows you to ''only display'' the image of your choice is gone. You can always have a wallpaper image, but its under the 4 quadrants and slightly greyedout. That's what I meant. Not a big thing but it was cool to personalize your display in this matter.
