At least CNN is covering the story now.

Users: Apple iOS 6 maps are a mess

"Apple made this maps change despite its shortcomings because they put their own priorities for corporate strategy ahead of user experience,"

Just heard a story on BBC World about the issues people are having in the UK with Apple's maps. It's pretty ridiculous there.

Matt, he (and I) never drank the Kool-aid. That's all he's saying.

I thought and continue to think it was pretty funny

As you are now well aware, those who are Appletonians will only like iOS and the hardware its tied to. I get it all the time here at work.

I've been in high tech now since the mid 70's and it’s always been this way. They all think like the old Superbowl commercial where the audience is mesmerized and staring at the face on the screen. Funny thing now is that THEY are the audience.

I like Apple products, very elegant and usually smooth operating. But me and my Galaxy S ii will still run circles around the 4 (too soon to comment on the 5 though).

Now, back to our show (wasn't this thread about MFT???).

Is there any way to have the Navigation on MFT to show driving speed?

For those running iOS 6 -- until Google releases a stand-alone app in the App Store (which will happen ala the YouTube app) -- open Safari, go to maps.google.com, click the action button and tap "Add to Homescreen". It's not a perfect solution, but better than wasting a lot of time angry and over-using the machine gun emoticon. ;-)

Hi! New Focus owner with a MFT question. :)

I don't have Nav, am trying to use the turn by turn directions. It is failing miserably - I've seen it on other threads so I know it is a common problem. Disconnects during download and directions aren't complete. When I got the car I had an iPhone 4s with iOS 5, tried all the master rest, reset phone, reverse pair suggestions. Still failed. Now I've actually gotten rid of the iPhone and purchased a Galaxy S2 Skyrocket with ICS - my husband had android since his Galaxy S, I've been Apple since my 3GS. I finally got tired of all the Apple issues and made the leap away. Still having the MFT directions problem, and had some glitches pairing phone with ICS OS. I did another master reset, reset the S2, reverse paired, phone book wouldn't download but I think I can get that today.

Long story for two questions really -
1) any additiolanl suggestions for making downloading directions work? Pull the battery or use google maps through the car speakers maybe if the directions aren't likely to ever work?
2) since the reset I can't get my temp display back to Fahrenheit, the button flashes when I touch it but it doesn't change. Also the clock jumps back an hour and I have to manually reset it. Is the clock set on its own from the GPS or is it always manual?

Thanks!

The official Sync v3.2.2 update is now available for the Focus. I am downloading now but won't get a chance to install it till this evening.

Fingers crossed.
