What? Based on Windows CE? The same OS that was on the HP Pocket PCs? Take a quick glance through these:

That explains why my wife's Kia sucks as much as the MFT

(For instance, since I put on 3.5.1, my GPS keeps randomly freezing, and will now take forever to acquire signal)
Oddly enough, I actually got a letter in the mail from some lawyer about that exact thing last week...

Am I missing something? Why isn't there a simulator for this? If you were going to create an app for android or iPhone, there is a simulator a developer can fire up.

So what was the gist of it? Performance issues? Feature removal? Safety/distraction issues due to bugs? A little bit of everything?

Just curious.

It's sitting in my file at home... I'll scan/post later!

If I recall, mainly MFT but might be bit of everything.

Should have named it My Ford Trash & Microsoft Stink

It shuts down unexpectedly. I counted 9 times in one day. Wont connect to my phone at times. Also connection problems on another 2013 Ford with MFT I have. Im taking it in for a second time next Friday. My other Ford has had a under tightened ac clamp blow out and discharge freon, this at only having 3000 miles. Come on Ford. Take care of the customers.

I've never had a shut down on mine. Did you buy yours with all the latest updates or were they done after you bought it? Reason asking, I've heard some updates weren't flashed properly and they have to redo it.

I've read that MFT automatically reboots every 24-hours for "maintenance", but if yours is shutting down that many times in a day then I'd say it has serious hardware problem.
