It still doesn't even show up for Focus owners. This was a warning for people that had it show up on the update page, people with models the update was officially released for. They said don't install it.

Coincidentally, SMR is suddenly down until 1pm right now.

I made the mistake of plugging my iPhone AND my iPod nano into MFT at the same time.
I usually have of of those plugged in one at a time, and this would be the first time I tried connecting both. What a mistake. I lost all voice command functionality (prompts, feedback and listening) although the interface still showed it was listening. Media player stopped responding to touch input.

Delayedreboot did not help.
Had to do a master reset and lost all my favorites again (at this point entering favorites is just a big waste of time. They will never last).

The semi-unrelated crash seemingly due to an overload just makes me wonder if the problems are not all due to poor programming, but hardware limitations (not enough processing power or ram to store indexes).

Anyways.. it was mid-road trip and I was running late. Having to not only master reset after failing at the reboot, but losing my favorites which not only had my destinations and waypoints in, but my home location, I had to plug everything back in by address. It was g tedious and infuriating and my passengers (friends) were just laughing that I bought a Ford (I should have listened to their warnings). Of course I could of just as easily sent the destinations from google or mapquest on my laptop as I always have--- oh wait.. none of that works anymore!!!

Nav POI + Voice = Eternal Waiting

I've mentioned this on here before and have seen some other people complain about it - but I'm kind of curious if it's an isolated incident or more common...

When you use voice commands to search for a POI, does your system move so slow that the POIs never actually show up on screen?

Mine does this and basically times out before it ever offers any actual choices on the MFT display. Needless to say, it makes the whole POI feature kind of worthless - and defeats the entire point of integrated Nav since I then have to pull out my phone to search for the address. Safety first!

Or, as I posted on another thread last month, here's a rough play-by-play of how it works:

Quote:
If I may, I present to you, 'An Average Day with MFT:'

"Destination Point of Interest"

MFT "By Name or By Category"

"By Name"

MFT "Search Where?"

"Nearby"

MFT "POI Name?"

"BlarbyBlahBlah"

MFT "Please Choose"

[screen is blank]

"..."

MFT "Please Choose. Say Line 1 or Next Page..."

[screen is still blank]

"...?"

MFT "Please Choose a Line Number. You May Also Say..."

[screen is still blank]

"...?!?"

MFT [beep beep sound that it has failed, music comes back on]

I have never used point of interest. I will try it on my way home. I just started using the sync help to put in addresses. It dials a toll free number (TellMe) and you can search a business and it will deliver the address to your navigation. Anyone else try it this way?

Yeah... POI by voice does that pretty much every time it creates a large list. Like it runs out of memory. If you browse a large list either by voice or by touch, it'll do the same thing. More often than getting a blank screen, I'll get the first screen, then I'll say "next page" or hit the down button and it will make a page flip noise but not refresh.
POI navigation is complete garbage. The Nav feature is a complete waste of money.
I's so ticked off with the frustrations (I bought the focus for the nav system) that i was on Amazon researching buying a $300 gps that not only would give me way more features than the MFT, but works as it should. If i wasn't hard of hearing, and relying on car speakers to pump out the nav prompts, I would have done it in the first place. But this MFT Nav system is just a complete hazard to deal with... I have no other choice now.I will have a choice when my lease is up. Bye bye, Ford.

I will have to give it a try and see what inputs it will take. I usually navigate to intersections and long/lat coordinates for my nature photography, which is why the google maps link was so important for me (had all my points saved to a custom map).

"There is a technical issue with the software update download file on SMR, please do not install. We are working to resolve the issue."
Another quality Ford update for sure.

Most expensive radio i've ever bought... and I say radio because that is about all that works right... err nm it doesn't work right forgot it even resets presets.

BTW has anyone checked the value of the car lately? my car has already lost $10k already in just a little over a year.... Atleast Ford is first and fastest in one thing.

I'm waiting on two software updates that are supposed to happen this month - MFT V3.2 and ICS for my Motorola Atrix 4G. The anticipation is killing me right now.
