Bumping this since I haven't seen any responses...

It's still doing this a week after it first started happening - I can't get any audio directions out of Nav! Haven't pulled the fuses yet but that's my next step.

EDIT - Finally managed to fix it:

You'll probably have to push the icon a few times to keep her talking while quickly twisting the knob to set the volume where you want it. Alternatively, you can put the system into Demo mode - longer readouts give you a better opportunity to adjust the volume.

Only one I'm aware of is "Show Map" to bring up the Nav page. I don't think there's a way to do the same for Phone, Entertainment, or Climate.

Since the upgrade....I can hear an incoming phone call ring over the speakers, but I don't get the caller ID notification on the My Touch. So I have to answer the phone on the handset. Any ideas???

Also, if I am listening to AM radio before making a phone call, the radio will switch to FM once I hang up a call. ?????????

The only thing I can really think of is perhaps making sure your phone book is downloaded to MFT... you can do this in Phone Settings. There may even be a caller ID function in there, I haven't had to look thus far.

You should be able to still take calls by pressing the accept call button on the steering wheel, or I think you can press it on the screen too.

I have these same issues. Most of the time the incoming calls show up on the MFT screen but sometimes I have to answer the call on the cell phone itself because there is no visible indication of the incoming call on the MFT screen but the phone rings over the car audio system.

I've also tried to make calls using the MFT screen such that the outgoing calls are displayed on the MFT screen but there is no sound over the audio system. After several attempts, I end up using my cell phone itself & the person I'm trying to call says their phone had rung each time I called but there was no one on the line.

I listen to a local AM sports station sometimes & my radio will always switch to an FM station (one that is preset on my favorites list) when a call ends.

You guys with problems that have shown up out of no where like the buttons without labels, incoming call issues, text notification stops working, many nav issues etc. Need to get the delayedreboot.cab(google it) this fixes most of the issues when they arise. It's not a perfect solution but it works for me and takes only a minute to do it.

I told him he was mistaken, but he assured me that my system was working correctly without the information being displayed under the compass.
Well, that is completely ridiculous. Maybe the MFT specialists are as broken as MFT! Did you get his/her name? If you manage to get the street location back under the compass you could take a picture and call the same person and complain that it is broken because, according to them, the street location is never supposed to be there and now it is there. Ask that person how to fix this problem and why the street location is there when it is not (again according to them) supposed to be. Could be fun!

Anyhow, the issue is back for me and I no longer have street location under my compass again. As I don't particularly need it right now I've decided to not use my usual set route/cancel route fix and see if at any time in the near future it decides to fix itself. I have had three shutdown/starts since it disappeared again and still it has not come back.

I get this problem intermittently. I can sometime get it to come back by changing to other screens and coming back, but usually not. It typically comes back the next time I start the car after it has been off. There are other graphics bug for me like disappearing preset labels on FM and Sirius. I REALLY hope Ford is working on an update.

When this flakiness is on the rise, I do are hard reboot which improve things for a while. To hard reboot MFT, turn off the car, pull fuses 67 AND 79 from the panel underneath the glove box. Leave them out for at least a min or two until the capacitors discharge to make sure the power-down is complete. When you replace the fuses and start the car again, you will have a black screen for a min or two (seem like forever) followed by the "performing system maintenance" screen, then it should start and behave itself very well, ...for a while.

I have also download a routine to a USB stick that is supposed to initiate a reboot but I am not recommending it up here until I have tried it myself (haven't yet)

My preset numbers and radio station haven't shown up since the day after I got the upgrade.

I would pull the fuses, but I want Ford to be aware of MFT issues, so I'm bringing it in. Ford has no way of knowing that people are pulling fuses, using software from the internet to perform delayed reboots, servicing the car themselves... etc. and we shouldn't have to. What if I was some technologically declined person who had no idea how to do any of this? It's not exactly normal maintenance...

Ford is posting a poll on facebook:

For those who have installed the recent MyFord Touch Performance Upgrade, how satisfied have you been with the improvement?
