One of the strangest quirks of the 3.02 update was that you could only adjust the volume of the navigation prompts while the voice was speaking,
and it carried over to 3.5. It's not very intuitive.

I suspect the navigation voice on your system got turned all the way down.

Try this:

When you hear the dip in music volume, and suspect that you should be hearing navigation prompts, turn up the volume using the center console volume control (you have to do it ONLY when the voice would be speaking). Hopefully you'll hear the prompts again.

I tried this but it doesnt work. The volume of the music only dips for a second (not like its trying to give a prompt, more like tries, fails and then just continues playing music)

The update went smoothly. The only problem I had was with reporting the install from the USB drive, a vehicle health report should fix that.

I really like the flattened voice command structure. The ability to switch to a channel or song between different sources with one command is awesome, except that I noticed you can't specify a satellite bank and preset until that device is active first. I'll have to mess around with a bit more during the work commute next week. Sitting in the car for over an hour updating and reprogramming was enough for me today.

A little tip for those with satellite. Create a list of the channel numbers and the presets they're stored in. Put that list on your phone, tablet, or in the cloud such as Google Drive so it can be accessed from a portable device. When it comes time to reprogram, just use your voice to bring up the channel then enter it as a preset. It goes a lot faster this way.

It works!

To receive texts on an iPhone with iOS6 try this (note I did a master reset the night before but don't know that it is necessary):

1) Delete your phone from the car. Delete Sync from your phone.

2) Turn the phone off and on again (just off/on, Turn the car off and on again.

** Don't know if the above two are necessary either but I figured why not start "clean".

3) Pair your phone fresh w/MFT. Let it do its thing (phonebook loading, voicemail #, 911 assist, etc.)

4) On your phone, turn BT off. Turn it on again.

5) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen to reconnect BT.

6) Go into the settings screen for Sync (little arrow to the right of Sync).

7) Set Notifications to "On".

8) Back up a screen and turn BT off again. Turn it back on.

9) Hit "connect" on the MFT screen again to reconnect to BT.
What version of mft is this with? I'm not finding a sync settings anywhere on mft.

Here's one that I'm wondering if anyone else has seen.

Every now and then when I attempt to lower the radio volume via the steering wheel it increases. The only way to turn it down is with the knob on the dash.

I've had it for a while and was hoping that this update would solve it. I guess that means its more likely a hardware issue that soft?

Very random but once it occurs it won't go away until the ignition is cycled (and then off for a period of time, how much exactly I do not know).

I believe there is indeed a fix for this. The problem is with the controller in the steering wheel, but I'm pretty sure there is a firmware fix. Anyone feel free to chime in if you know the exact number.

You have to have 3.5.1 for it to work.
