Is that code for "We (FORD) haven't the foggiest idea on how to fix this mess" so we'll just leak it that a fix will not be coming until oh, lets say 6-10 months from now? BTW, where did you hear this from?I hope this isn't true...I was really hoping by November. [bigcry] My ride is currently in the shop getting its MFT worked on, amongst other things.
Yes...this is the kind of thing anyone would make up? Really? In case it is difficult for you to infer; my car is in the shop getting the MFT serviced, and someone at the dealership MIGHT call Ford in the process and ask. That person may call me and tell me.he lists no sources or where he heard this information and everyone believes him? lol
What's with all this might stuff? Either they told you or they didn't?Yes...this is the kind of thing anyone would make up? Really?

I'm trying to be a little vague because who knows if this is information people were supposed to release. I don't like getting people in trouble who are working hard to fix my car. But yes....it was heard from someone talking to Ford.What's with all this might stuff? Either they told you or they didn't?
Instead your trying to spread an unconfirmed rumor without a legitimate source. As many people can attest to on this forum using your dealership for information on any sort of update that may or may not be coming from Ford is not the best source.
Also, has your MFT had the 2.11 update installed on it?
Whoa there guys. Bring it back a bit. He never says what information he had was factual. In fact, he even hints that it's a rumour and "hopes this isn't true". That statement tells you that he is only hearing a rumour and passing on the information he heard.
Isn't that what we all on here want. Some type of information about something, anything to do with MFT.
Of course it should be all taken with a grain of salt, and until someone can confirm it 100%, then take it as you will.
Don't jump all over the guy when he didn't say "I heard 100% that the release will be a guaranteed release for Jan 13, 2012".
It's a piece of information that we can now try to look at and see if someone can verify if such is reality of just some telephone game type of rumour.
To do the update, the USB cable connecting the APIM to the media hub must be disconnected (a USB connection from the APIM to the tech's laptop is made).My car has 2.11; and since the update the car's ability has to use a USB drive has stopped.
I completely agree with you. There is no way they can expect to charge for us. The MFT system as it exists right now is very flawed, and needs a lot of work.if ford in any way tries to charge us for updates to get MFT working with basic functionality without locking up, crashing, black screening, etc. i will personally lead the charge for a class action lawsuit. ford loudly touts this technology as best in class, fully functional, capable, and without serious errors or issues. this could not be farther from the truth. i've been in IT over 30 years, at best v2.11 should be called a beta release.
it's one thing to charge for new functionality (providing navigation to units purchased without navigation). it's another for correcting issues that never should have made it off of the assembly line.
Question for you... do you know if the 2.11 update is even listed on SyncMyRide website yet? Or is it only for people that have to ask for it?Any updates that Ford comes out with will be available to anyone with MFT as long as your car is still under warranty free of charge.
