It's also on support.ford.com for everyone in the US. Currently downloading (very slow). Hoping to heck it fixes the random lag (music skips, seems like it is buffering every few seconds) the system develops about a minute or two after starting that last for a minute or two.

Got it installed a little earlier. It did indeed take about 30 min and restarted maybe 6 times or so. It adds individual sensor squares on the backup camera (or maybe they were there before but weren't turned on). They show each region and whether you're in the yellow or red zone for stuff not necessarily directly behind you. With crappy parking at home like I have, its actually pretty nice.

If you had a wallpaper, you'll lose it. You'll also have to re-pair your phone. Didn't play with it much otherwise, but it didn't make the audio skip about 2 min after being on like before so hopefully that was fixed. Responsiveness seems a bit better and the touch areas are larger.

Downloaded, haven't installed it yet but I can tell you that the squares were there before, but they kept resetting to be off, because MFT...

installed this last night, did take around 30 min but installed with no issue.
i've noticed this:
1. reverse assist with lines now stick
2. map has zoom settings .25 mile . 50. auto (i think this is new?)
3. over all smoother and more responsive
4. text to speech ringer for both phone and messaging work


over all i like it !

Look like the same squares to me. But they may have a subtle difference in how they function. I'm not sure but I don't think with 3.5 they disappeared as you reached the closer blocks.

Everything is way quicker and more stable to me. I think most changes are under the hood programming. Fine with me.

Definitely more responsive.

Another change seems to be the volume control.

It takes more bars for the same loudness now.

BUT, each click is a finer adjustment.

The old problem where I couldn't set the volume exactly where I wanted to is solved.

does it tell how much longer is left before a track ends? The current counter is stupid as there is no way to tell when the song is over
