MyFord Touch Perfomance Update: Temperature and Phone Contact Issue
Updated successfully with MFT Update Performance files, but now when starting car 1.A/C comes on and fogs windows. 2. Phone doesn't download phone contacts. 3. When calling using sync, it will connect with other party but when disconnecting it won't connect with sync, tried disconnecting with voice recognition, clicking on button on touch screen where says disconnect, it says it's disconnecting, but continues to stay on, no matter how many times I click on it, but finally after getting home and staying connected for 30+ minutes, when I shut car off and shut door, it disconnected, so I used up precious minutes on void.
Did another Master Reset, pulled the fuse and now it corrected the 2 of the 3 issues I was currently having after the update of Gen2 V3.0.
1. It corrected by not putting the A/C on and now the temperature shows and is functioning after I turn the key on.
2. Phone disconnects when I end or disconnect where before it would continue to stay on until I turned the key off and open and shut the door.
MyFord Touch Sync Update Gen2 V3.0
Downloaded the update from syncmyride.com had just a little trouble downloading, but got it on my 4GB card then placed it in my usb reader. With all the the little blurps that occurred, it took about 2 hours from start to finish. I did do a master reset before installing, plus I had to pull out the fuse # 67 from underneath the right side of the passenger glove box. I used a fuse puller that I had from my Ford Ranger fuse box. My car is a Focus SEL 2012. Also, recorded using Canon PowerShot SD880 IS camera.......

2013 Ford Escape MyFord Touch Performance Upgrade faster, Simpler, Better: MyFord Touch Upgrade Provides New and Existing Customers Enhancements and New Features
•Ford will launch performance upgrades and new features for MyFord Touch® beginning with 2013 models -- no-charge upgrade will be available to existing owners
•Simpler graphics, faster touch-screen response and easier-to-use controls are among the many enhancements to the voice-activated in-car connectivity system
DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 7, 2011 -- Ford customers said MyFord Touch® could be faster and feature simpler graphics that are easier to use and that's exactly what Ford plans to deliver with a broad set of performance upgrades to the system -- launching first on the new 2013 Ford Escape, Flex and Taurus.
Available early next year -- and offered at no charge to existing MyFord Touch owners -- the software upgrade enhances the ownership experience as it was developed by listening and responding to customer feedback.
"SYNC® has clearly been a game-changing technology and now we're changing the game again, showing how quickly we can deliver more of what customers really want," said Graydon Reitz, director, Ford Global Electronics and Electrical Systems Engineering. "Our strategy to create the SYNC software platform and add the customizable screens of MyFord Touch gives us a level of flexibility and speed to respond to customer input like never before seen in the auto industry."
The new touch-screen interface features simpler graphics and controls that are easier to use. Customers will also experience significantly faster touch-screen response times, one of the top requests from owners.
New features include support for tablet devices and Audible.com audiobooks, improved navigation maps and enhanced voice recognition interaction.
Listening to customers
Since MyFord launched last fall, Ford has held four customer clinics in which hundreds of owners talked directly to Ford engineers about their experiences with the new technology. Owner feedback was clear and consistent, revealing that MyFord Touch was a key purchase reason.
A survey of 2011 Ford Edge owners shows that four of the top seven purchase reasons were elements of the MyFord Touch system: the touch screen, steering wheel controls, voice recognition and dashboard styling.
While owners reported that they love the system, there were distinct areas where they wanted improvements. Earlier this year, Ford started delivering on their requests, beginning with more instructions and information on how to best utilize the capabilities of the system.
Ford launched two programs modeled after what consumers experience when purchasing a new electronic device. First, the company added a new MyFord Touch owner support website featuring how-to videos at www.syncmyride.com. Second, free "SYNC My Ride" personalized training sessions for new owners are now offered through Ford dealers -- scheduled at customers' convenience.
"The keys to continuous improvement are simple: Listen, learn and respond. That's how we're going to keep our customers happy," said Gary Jablonski, manager, SYNC Platform Development. "Evolving the software with meaningful enhanced features was part of our plan from the very beginning. It's no different than the experience with our smartphones and laptop computers -- except now, it's your car that gets better."
Upgrade your ride
All of the new improvements will be offered to existing owners of MyFord Touch-equipped vehicles, including the 2011 and 2012 models of Ford Explorer and Edge and the 2012 Focus. Owners of 2011 and 2012 Lincoln MKX crossovers will also receive the upgrade for their MyLincoln Touch™ systems.
"We're seizing the opportunity to continuously improve the Ford ownership experience, and revolutionize what it means to own a car," said Reitz. "Introducing new technology is only one step in our journey to become known as a technology company. Consistently improving it based on what our customers are telling us marks another milestone in that journey."
Early next year, owners located in the U.S. will be mailed a USB flash drive with the software upgrade for installation that they can do at their own convenience. If they prefer, owners may also visit their local Ford or Lincoln dealer for the software installation. The upgrade mailing will include instructions informing owners how to simply plug the USB flash drive into the MyFord Touch Media Hub's USB port in order for installation to automatically begin.

•2012 Focus hatchback and sedan models are on sale now -- in S, SE, SEL and Titanium trim series levels -- at Ford dealerships across North America
The all-new Ford Focus sets a new standard in the small car segment in North America, offering more technologies and features than many expensive European cars, while delivering up to 40 mpg on the highway.
"Focus brings a desirable combination of dynamic design, outstanding driver engagement, unmatched levels of technology and impressive fuel economy," said Mark Fields, president of The Americas. "The new model should expand Focus appeal to a whole new generation of customers."
Focus is Ford's most significant global nameplate. With more than 10 million units sold since launching in 1998, Focus has become a sales leader with consumers worldwide for its blend of outstanding value, comfort, safety, technology and driving dynamics.
All-new for 2012
Following an unprecedented global development program under the company's One Ford strategy, the all-new 2012 Focus is set to continue this successful tradition. The new Focus demonstrates how Ford can scale to meet the universal needs of worldwide customers, while fine-tuning to suit regional preferences.

In addition, Focus offers high standards of quality and craftsmanship and class-leading fuel economy, while taking driving dynamics to a new level.
Focus four-door sedan and five-door hatchback models share a sporty character, marking the next evolution of Ford's acclaimed kinetic design form language. With a striking front end, sleek profile, dramatic rising beltline and athletic stance, the new Focus signals the rewarding experience awaiting a driver.
The dynamic quality of the Focus exterior is reinforced by the distinctive design inside, featuring a modern, cockpit-style interior with stylish center console.
This space combines functionality with outstanding craftsmanship. Bold and contemporary graphics, the sculptured shape of the soft-touch instrument panel, and superior trim materials unite to give occupants a premium-class experience.

Ford Focus 2012 SEL MyFord Touch Audio/Video Recording
I really haven't had too many problems with MFT, but like everyone else, I'm still waiting for Ford to send the usb update (hopefully before April 2012) and see what changes if any that could improve this baby. In this video all I wanted to do was get a simple recording and a playback on MFT screen. I was setup using my guitar (1980 Lotus) going through wireless transmitter (AKG PT 40 Pro) and a small battery amp (Roland Mobile Cube) that was sitting on top of the car hood. The wireless transmitter was connected with a 80 watt inverter (Chicago Electric) then connected to the Focus 12 volt input. I was surprised there was no electrical interference with these devices. It did start making the crackling sound once I started playing higher notes, but that was because of the volume. Overall, the Ford Focus is sound, I love the car. Oh and I recorded using a JVC Everio (GZ-MG77U). Wish I had a better recording device.

2012 Ford Focus MyFord Touch FAIL!
The problems continue with the MyFord Touch sync system in my 10 month old 2012 Ford Focus Titanium. I'm just sick and tired and fed up already. Ford just gives me excuses and wants me to keep sending my car to the shop. Haven't heard back from them since my last email to them a few weeks ago and I'm not surprised.
Keep going Ford. When my lease is up you'll have one less customer here. That you can count on!
