The noise other people hear when I am talking to them from my Iphone 4 in my car is my only major issue. No difference than before the update. I told my service dept. to get back on the phone with the ford engineers, to see what the next step is....

A link to the whole thing is already up here somewhere but two of my favorite parts from the communication brief about the upgrade Ford sent dealers back in November:

Will the system still have black screens or reboots while driving? No, we do not expect customers will experience these issues anymore.

How do you know that these issues won’t happen again? We are confident in our testing process.

Less than four days and I got my first black screen, reboot while driving, scheduled maintenance. Oh well, at least they are confident. That is reassuring.

Sometimes i have to. Sometimes I don't. Depends on the mood of the system.
It's pretty annoying when it happens because the voice kicks in help telling me I need to say "navigation, bluetooth, etc..."

I THINK that it happens 100% if I'm tuned to Sirius, and happens no matter what screen I'm on, even if in NAV already.

Has anyone received their packet in the mail, or have all updates to this point been performed at the dealership?

I was wondering the same thing. Dealership is a big pain because they are open while I'm at work, I don't want to take leave just for this.

P.S. I know you can download the update at syncmyride.com, but I need the NAV SD card as well

Only to make use of the Nav features. The rest will install and run fine.

I mean, aside from the glitches.

1st off... This is what I was greeted with when I started my car this morning. It stayed like this until I went into 'Entertainment' and selected Sirius. And I don't know why it just doesn't turn on to Sirius automatically when that was the last audio source selected when I last drove.



2nd off... I found it hilarious that the MFT app in the App Store has an update for 'bug fixes'. I'm sure it's unrelated... but found it hilarious.

LOL. That's what scares me... they're actually confident in the testing process that left many major bugs in the system. They're mailing 300k copies of this buggy software to users... they should have been 1000% confident in their software before taking that major step.

Thanks for the clarification. That is very aggravating... That functionality ALWAYS worked in v2.

This question is only for those with Navigation and those that have updated to the new software release.

Hi all.....since I have yet to receive the "updated" Navigation SD card or the performance update (I'm in Canada) I was just wondering if anyone that has updated to the new Nav SD, how is the performance/reliability compared to the old system? In my Focus, the Navigation system has "never" worked properly since I took possession of the car in June of 2011. It was basically a wasted $800.00 option that I paid for and have been unable to use for all of the known bugs listed on this forum including but not limited to the outdated maps, slow response time, GPS malfunctions, SD card error alerts, voice commands not recognized and not being able to input destinations. Any feedback would be very much appreciated. I thank you in advance.

And yes, we do have questions concerning lost fuctionality, glitches, and connectivity issues with the new update. Please see the last 10-20 pages of this thread.

One of the great things about Sirius radio is being able to see the song and artist, why not have that on the home screen display?

In general I like the look of the update, but it is not what I was hoping for.
Of course I'm available to assist with troubleshooting, but if you'd like to provide feedback regarding the upgrade contact the In-Vehicle Technology Team at: 800-392-FORD (prompts 1 & 3).

My statement isn't a criticism of Jaclyn in any way but a criticism of Ford's refusal to communicate with us in any meaningful way regarding the issues present in MyFord Touch.
Thank you for clarifying, Doug. I understand the various levels of frustration at this point and I really am trying to help!

It has been quite frustrating to say the least, but thanks for being there for us. You've been taking the hits like a champ and we really do appreciate you talking to us.

--------

On a personal note I hope by the end of the year mft is totally, 100% fixed. Im moving to florida then and id hate to endure 900 miles of fuse pulls, restarts and other general automotive insanity.
