My experience with my dealer is that none of them have a clue when it comes to mft. It's pretty sad actually. It's only going to get worse for them here as cars get more technical too. Ford would be wise to hire experts who deal only with electronics. That's how all the best customization shops are organized.

Unless Ford releases some new groundbreaking gotta have it feature I am sticking with v3.5.1 for as long as I have the car. It has it's share of problems but they're manageable.

Hi all, just got some alone time in the new buggy this afternoon and I was wondering if anyone has heard of this issue. While listening to Sirius I noticed that the volume muted slightly and then returned to set volume, i was stopped at one point and the volume did not fully cut out, just seemed to go down and then come back up. Seemed random but I did not time it and it happened about five times in the 1+ hours that I was driving. I did not check any other settings like FM or such.

I went to set the Wi-Fi to connect to the house when the car is home; the security key won't accept anything but numbers.

Same here but I read some reply that said that Wi-Fi had no use in our cars yet?

The car has a feature to adjust volume based on speed. Basically, when you slow down/stop it lowers the volume. I think it is supposed to make it sound more even when the road/engine noise cuts out.
I have no idea where this setting would be in the MFT menus because I have the regular radio.

I have the feature but it is set to off right now.

It has no real practical use. It does work technically. When the car came out there were like 2 models of usb cellular data sticks you could plug into the usb ports to get in car Wi-Fi. Also, the idea was to originally have a web browser, apps and updates come from local Wi-Fi at home, but that was abandoned because the basics of the system was bad joke that's still being patched 2 years later.

I know we think our cars infotainment is the worst sometimes ... well I was driving in my buddies new Mercedes ... the display went black. it did some sort of reboot and came back. I asked if that happened before and he said yes and Mercedes said they can't fix it unless they see it happen. He is also having trouble with the car working with his iPod. Sounds similar to some of the problems we are having ... Does this help us? No ... but misery loves company!!!

And our cars cost a fraction of the cost of a Mercedes equipped as such, I'm sure. It took BMW a decade to get iDrive right, too.

So yeah, our system isn't great, but it's not the only one. 3.5.1 has been enjoyable for me.
