Here's the latest on MFT from BSquare

Quote:
Microsoft Corporation ("Microsoft") became our largest engineering services customer during the first quarter of 2012, replacing Ford Motor Company ("Ford"), as Microsoft replaced Ford as the invoiced customer on the MyFord Touch program. We continue to work on the MyFord Touch, a project we began with Ford during the second quarter of 2008; however, we now conduct these services through an agreement with Microsoft. During the initial project with Ford, we provided hardware design and implementation, platform level software development, application level software development, quality assurance services and systems integration services. The project has transitioned since the initial project such that we are now primarily focused on developing and integrating new user applications for the MyFord Touch, enhancing existing applications and customizing the MyFord Touch platform for additional vehicle models. Service revenue from the MyFord Touch program declined $479,000 to $1.3 million, or 29% of total service revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $1.8 million, or 24% of total service revenue, in the year-ago period. The decline is primarily attributable to a reduction in the number of engineers working on the MyFord Touch project.

Swell - less engineers working on MFT.

I read from this that M$ has taken a larger role and is reducing BSquared role. Don't know if I should be happy that M$ is taking over.

In regards to MFT and phone and voice commands to send text. Does anyone that has a android based phone able to use voice commands to reply to a text message?
I've got a Droid RazrHD and a Samsung S3. When I use voice command to reply to text message it skips right to number 15 of the 15 line options to use. So I will say "reply to text message" and it replies do you want to reply to xxx-xxx-xxxx (it skips) number 15? If I say no, it just repeats. Won't let me chose 1-14.
Anyone else?

Update: fixed.. took two master resets and got it working.

Text messaging broke with the v3.5.1 update. When a message comes in I get the notification, but can't read or reply. It worked on v3.02 as long as I left 911 assist disabled (SGS2).

No more master resets, if the car was out of warranty I'd rip the damn thing out completely and replace it with my own solution; which I will eventually do if I keep the car that long.

Actually, it still works under 3.5.1. Android updated their OS and changed the Bluetooth stack, that killed it for a lot of phones. Some phone carriers and phone version were also not working due to the phone maker.
If you know how to root and flash ROM's, then you can be notified/text and reply just fine.
Iphone folks use Siri to talk about the message.

I am running CM9.1 and messaging worked on v3.02, it quit working once MFT was updated to v3.5.1 so I am pretty sure it's not the phone.

Which phone you have? Cm10.0 works with it. Whereas, cm10.1 does not.
