It's nothing to do with my iPod or iTunes settings, my iPod was plugged in to the car for about a month straight and was working until recently. I haven't bothered syncing it t my computer or changing playlists. Also when I unplugged the iPod and tested with my iPhone (which only has a few albums on it) the same thing happened.

My force-play workaround didn't fix the "building voice commands" problem - I'm going to have to just pull those fuses (now that I know where the fuse box is thanks to the other thread).

I really don't want to have to pul out fuses every 2 months, I hope a Sync update will fix this - appears to be some kind of memory leak type problem in Sync.

So I went to sync for directions the other day and it wouldnt work saying I need to activate my sync services. I had already done this but since MFT had to be reset at the dealership maybe I needed to activate it again. But when I go online to activate it says I need to purchase the sync services :(

SIAP but I have a frequent problem where the car doesn't recognize my commands. I often have to shout at the top of my lungs before the recorded lady comes back with "Okay, traffic to home. Let me get that for you.". Seriously, I find myself getting pretty angry with her most of the time I try to use the system.

Anybody else?

I noticed the calmer and more natural you talk the better the system works. When I use to try to pronounce each word perfectly is when I had my most trouble. My suggestion is speak in a normal tone of voice and do not try to speak to her as if you were speaking to some one that is new to the English language.

Is your thumb drive in fat32?

Thanks, that was the same excellent advice I received a few years ago about talking to my wife. Should be easy to apply to the car as well.

Let's face facts... MFT and the whole system is a JOKE.. It works SOME of the time only.. It's the quirkiest system in ANY car built today.. Frustrating as all hell. I'd NEVER buy a Ford again unless they FIX this and fix it right. It works 50 per cent of the time AT BEST!
It's 2012 FORD! Get it right! AND.. where's the so called promised fix for this crap????

so my sync locked up the other day when i tried to change radio stations (common). i drove for 30 minutes stuck on one station with a frozen, non-responsive display. i'm used to it. at least the volume dial still works, the control on the steering wheel didn't.

i shut off the car, got out, and watched for 5 minutes as it sat there before it finally went dark.

since then all my my pre-set buttons in the radio tuning are blank. even setting a new pre-set doesn't bring back any display.

i'm hoping to get that usb drive update before i get tired of this and have to pull the plug, again.

Had I done more research, I'de done without the MFT. I really wanted it cause I'm a real techy kind of guy. Really regret paying the extra $$ now. The touch-screen system in my last Chrysler worked perfectly.

This has happend to me a couple of times. The first time, I took in the shop. They had it for a whole day. Thought it was fixed.

APPARENTLY NOT

It's done it again since. Makes me want to bust a cap thru the screen. don't think the warrenty would cover that tho.

Really want to drive up to the Ford home office and "discuss" my dissatisfaction with the Engineering team.
