I just checked with SyncMyRide and they list me for the update. OK, so I download to a thumbdrive and then what? I have a 32GB thumbdrive with 16GB of music on it already -- can I just use that or does the drive have to be empty or newly formatted?

Once I have the download on the thumbdrive I presume I put it into the USB port then start the car -- is that all there is or do I have to answer some prompts?

Well that sucks.

Build 1/12
MFT with Navigation

No climate; it does what everyone has reported.

Figures.

Oh well, not like I ever used it anyways.

It's probably best to do it on a clean drive so that it doesn't get confused, but yeah, you just plug it in and it should start. You'll have to hit Okay a couple times through the process (do not just start it and leave when it starts. After it loads package 3 or so it will prompt you to say OK. If you don't, it will just sit there.) If it doesn't automatically run you can do the Install Applications option from the Vehicle menu and it should run then. Don't have any other USB devices in when you do it.

I'm pretty sure the drive needs to be empty, despite the free space available. I could be wrong.

Yes, there was a prompt or two. It loaded some files then presented a screen where you had to select OK. My first attempt it stopped reading the drive. I downloaded to another USB stick and reran it again. So, I would keep an eye on it every now and then.

Anyone have the link for the download? I have the Edge/Explorer version of 3.2.2 and I'm willing to try to install the "Focus" version if I can get a link. SMR shows I'm up to date since it's the same version number I'm guessing.

Doesn't sound like anything has changed but I'd like to give it a shot.

So far we are up to 12 pages of post and not one "chime in" from the Ford folks....

Not that it matters, but I sent an email to consumer reports product review department about this issue. They have been rather critical of MFT and it would be nice if they can get some answers. It has been at least two days now and so far no acknowledgement from Ford about this issue.

FYI my build date is 12/11

I was able to re-download this morning (in hopes of a slightly different version ... I couldn't tell a difference) without any trouble. Did you confirm the install?

It won't let you reinstall the same version of the software, I tried it and it says its already installed. I installed yesterday and then downloaded it again tonight and attempted to install again and it wouldn't let me.
