As I mentioned in my original post, no phone issues. Everything is working good except for the entertainment part which is really frustrating since I had none of those issues with the older version.

Go figure!?!

bassmobile, sorry to hear and unfortunately for all of us there is no going back. We are stuck with a bland, feature/function reduced system not even close to what we paid for. I really, really, really wish Ford would just release a statement along with every new upgrade/update just to let us know in advance yet what else is going to be taken away so we could make an informed decision as to whether or not it is worth it.
Ain't that the truth. It sounds simple, but the fact that I can't program a favorites button to Play/Pause on BT anymore (which is my audio source a solid 75% of the time - I listen to a lot of podcasts) is a royal pain. Now, my only option is to switch to the Entertainment screen and hit the button on-screen (which obviously takes a lot longer) or hit the system power button. The latter is fastest, but it's still a lot more distracting than the wheel button!

I installed 3.5.1. Mostly it seems pretty good and stable. However, I can't connect to wifi because the keyboard is greyed out. Probably not that important of a feature.

I also noticed that it no longer accepts voice navigation audio over bluetooth from my Android phone, which it did with the previous version. I have not yet tried playing music over bluetooth as I use a 128 GB flash drive instead.
