I updated and wish the interface was different. I havent really look into it that much. My biggest complaint was everytime I left the USB-SD card it always went back to song 1. I have 1000 plus songs. It was annoying. I went to song 530 and shutdown and fired back up and 530 so thats cool.

Nexus 4 doesn't support the MAP Bluetooth profile so it just isn't possible at the moment. Hopefully it will when Android 5 comes out.

Just did the download and install., Helps that my thumb drive has a little LED that flashed periodically when it's working. All went well. Over the next little while I'll use it and see if anything has changed. Really hope the AC dual buttons now work together. Pain to change to the climate screen and tap the light off just to ensure AC isn't on!

Yes installed it, took just about 30 minutes. Messed around with it for a few minutes and noticed a couple of good things:

1. Song title and Artist displayed on home screen! This was already mentioned before with HD radio playing, and it also works with Sirius and Google Play! It's nice to be able to see that info without having to jump to the audio screen (and it didn't even work before with Play even on the audio screen) .

2. Backup camera guidelines don't disappear! At least for the few times I tried to get them to disappear, they didn't. It looks like Ford solved this by taking out the option to turn them off as now you can only turn on and off the colored zones, not the lines.

As far as responsiveness goes, it seemed a tad faster. So far so good, and I hope no crazy bugs show up!

It's not all sweetness and light at least for one ST owner (not me, mine went fine, but I've got other reasons for going back to the dealer now darn it), their screen got inverted, and they lost navigation as a part of the update.

As someone else pointed out, it wipes out all of your wallpapers but I don't think anyone has mentioned that it is MUCH easier to put the wallpapers in now! You just select your picture and it puts it in, you don't have to save it or whatever you had to do before. It makes saving a bunch of wallpapers much nicer and less time consuming.

Isnt that solved by going into diag mode and running the screen calibration?
