Well, then SOMEONE is lying. (Whether that be the software coders saying they fixed it, the beta testers saying they tested it, etc...)

That or the person that set up the thumb drives accidentally grabbed the beta file and not the official version that was then copied to every single thumb drive. If that's the case... someone is probably going to get fired.

I am not sure if that is the case, as per this document
http://syncsupport.ford.com/media/d/...structions.pdf
the software version should be

CCPU S/W Version: 4.26.12023_PRODUCT

I verified and have the above version in my car.

I just wanted to inject some positive into this thread...

Although we have these bugs that are quite annoying and they make the system feel unpolished in some ways AND we lost some good functionality with the layout changes, overall it IS faster. They are definitely headed in the right direction.. They really just needed another 1-2 months left and it would have been much better.

I think this update was rushed by someone high up. I'm not trying to knock the team that put this together.. I'm sure they really did do the best they could with what they resources/time they had.

Perhaps none of these issues occur in a "clean install" of version 3.0 - which is what was beta tested as opposed to our updated version? This is just speculation, of course.
interesting...I like this theory....mmm.... how to do a clean install?

I'm confused...

The Focus has 2 sets of "hard" controls for volume and tuning (multi-function) already.
