Isn't the outside temp displayed on the driver's display? No real need for it to be duplicated when you only really need to check it once.

Thats great! Glad your up and running. I'll do mine when I get home tonight. Ironically, I dont have my Focus with me today, I drove the Fusion. Glad I have the webspace and bandwidth to host the file for you guys.

Thanks again for hosting the files for us!

I am downloading the zip now and will give it a try on my system with NAV to check it out. As long as everything else works I couldn't care less about NAV and will gladly wait until Ford sends me my updated SD if everything else with MFT actually works -- specifically bluetooth audio. I will report back later...

Thank you!!

Just for the driver but what about the passengers in the car!?
Like in cartoons “"What's up (temp), Doc (Driver)?".
They moved the Menu down so is enough space for temp info and is logical too, with one glimpse to MFT you have both (time /temp).
Maybe a new update!

Several of us already have, looks like I'm the only one who ran into any troubles with the installation, but I was able to solve the issue with a fuse pull and then reinstalled the update, worked like a charm the second time and the new system is fantastic!

Good to hear! Sorry you had to be the troubleshoot guinea pig.

After spending more time with it, I'm changing my tune.

The interface is growing on me. Clean, well laid-out, intuitive. I love the contrast on the faux-LED indicators.

It just works. Toggling back and forth between Sirius and USB stick, the audio plays instantly, no lag. Slight delay while the screen fades in and out, not crazy about the delay to accomodate a little eye-candy, but nowhere near as annoying as it just sitting there and doing nothing while it delayed on the last version. SYNC was nailing my album voice commands, 400+ albums on my USB stick and it didn't flinch. Bluetooth phone sounds waayyyy better, I actually kinda like the homescreen, track and artist info in the box with the little USB dongle icon, very cool. Very pleased.....thanks again seseattle!!!!

Go for it! Just do your due diligence and download an MD5 checksum verifier and make sure you got a clean download.
