Not laughing at you Paul, but, I can relate to this comment.. it made me chuckle... thanks.

Can't wait to see if someone gets this to work. I'm hoping if it has an APIM update my ZuneHD will start working again.

Well, ESP paperwork completed. Now I wait the possible 2 hours for them to do the 20 min task...if they do it

Fwiw-I can relate to the fob deal. I love standing next to may car waiting to see if will unlock while people watch to see if I'm trying to break into it

I hate my Service Dept. I'm walking across the street to cancel my ESP right now.
How do they determine "problems", or something wrong? It claims to address concerns with voice recognition and fortunately my concerns with that are documented at the dealership after the 3.0.2 update. They better not give me hassle.

The .3 hours is probably pretty accurate for the actual labor. The other 1.7 hours they are talking about is probably the amount of time your car will just be sitting there, running and wasting gas, after they start the install.

Installed. That was easy. Works SOOOO much better. I dont have A4 for navigation, but as the navigation was worthless before the update I don't feel much loss until it is installed. Everything now appears to work quickly, smoothly, and correctly.

My one complaint is why the car cant send data to ford when you come home, put in park, and it connects to yoru WiFi. Seems like that would be a good time to upload and car health data.

Idk, though they came and told me a few minutes ago that they are going ahead with the install and that it will be two hours from that time now. So maybe I'm late for work despite showing up so early...

How long did it take you, and are they still providing the nav card (maybe they just don't have them yet)? I don't really need the nav, but I want it working seems how I paid for the added cost on my car...

Is this update showing up in anyone's Syncmyride account or on the ETIS website for anyone? I want to just email my dealership about it and get the nav card in (I got the car back in June, sounds like all will need the updated nav card?) before I go ahead with the update and I am just looking for something official I can send over for them to see before scheduling...

kingray (and anyone else who may have it installed), please check to see if using a USB device for music works. I just got off of the phone with my father and he had a pre-release version installed in his Lincoln MKX a couple weeks ago (he works for Ford with a company vehicle) and he said he could no longer play MP3s off of USB after the update. I'm not sure if this is the same version or not, I could not get him to confirm the version.
