- iPod acted as if it was playing but no sound was coming out of speakers; prior to this, it would play but wouldn't allow me to use the >> button to change songs
- BT Audio usually works, but it continually dropped the BT connection as soon as I switched to that audio source

- I did everything Ford suggests, and beyond:
- Master Reset
- Rebooted iPod multiple times
- Rebooted my phone multiple times
- Soft reset the iPod

None of this resolved the issues. I literally spent my entire 25-minute drive home from work on Tuesday trying to get the damn system to either play a song on my iPod or stream a podcast from my phone. In the end, it was nothing but a distracting, quiet commute home.

Finally, I gave up and I pulled the fuses last night.

The system's working fine now. Well, these problems are resolved - for now... all the other quirks/bugs are still there...

Again, this is ridiculous. I didn't buy a $28K car to have to deal with these kind of issues on a daily basis. Might as well have saved myself thousands and bought an SE.

And yes, I've taken it to the dealer. Numerous times. And talked with the IVT team. And worked with my CSM. I just want the damn thing to work like it's supposed to already!

Got confirmation of a patch in 2 weeks and then a 4th quarter update to address anything found after the patch.

Anyone experiencing the missing NAV card issue should get the USB hub replaced.
If it happens to me again, I'm going to do just that.

My service rep who is kind enough to hear my complaints and get me back to loving my ride.
Emphasis was put on 2 weeks and Q4.
I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh, just checking. I was in VanBortel last Saturday (inspection) and they were asking how MFT was behaving (to which I replied in a brutally honest, but polite, fashion). They asked because they spent a lot of time working on mine. One of them told me about the update coming (which we all already knew sort of) but didn't commit to an actual time frame other than "should be soon from what we are being told".

Well that just eliminates the fuse-pull problem... the rest still applies!

Here's to hoping the patch/update rumors are true.

From Bsquare's 2nd quarter SEC filings:

"Microsoft Corporation ("Microsoft") became our largest engineering services customer during the first quarter of this year, replacing Ford Motor Company ("Ford"), as Microsoft replaced Ford as the invoiced customer on the MyFord Touch program. We continue to work on the MyFord Touch, a project we began with Ford during the second quarter of 2008, however we now conduct these services through an agreement with Microsoft. During the initial project with Ford, we provided hardware design and implementation, platform level software development, application level software development, quality assurance services and systems integration services. The project has transitioned since the initial project such that we are now primarily focused on developing and integrating new user applications for the MyFord Touch, enhancing existing applications and customizing the MyFord Touch platform for additional vehicle models. Service revenue from the MyFord Touch program declined $690,000 to $1.7 million, or 26% of total service revenue, for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $2.4 million, or 38% of total service revenue, in the year-ago period. Service revenue from the MyFord Touch program declined $1.2 million to $3.5 million, or 25% of total service revenue, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $4.7 million, or 35% of total service revenue, in the year-ago period. The number of engineers working on the MyFord Touch project has declined in the current year under the new agreement with Microsoft."

It was the corporate rep i have been dealing with over the phone. I actually took my car into Cortese dealership yesterday and got confirmation SEPT 1 for the patch. They were notified because they have a few customers repeatedly bring in their cars for MFT problems. He said I could pull in any time after Sept 1 and he would apply the patch for me. The service guy there did not know about a Q4 update.

OMFGWTF. That explains everything. I knew there was no way 3.0 was a complete re-write. Ford is out of their minds.
