Thank you for the quick reply. I do have the latest MFT software (3.6.2) but the chart at the link you provided is not up to date. The good news is that the suggestion that IraF provided did work and now the MFT system will notify and read text messages after I deleted my phone and repaired it. All is good with my MFT system now. :-)
I'm glad everything is working correctly now, Boat Racer. Thanks for keeping us in the loop!
Kim has been working on trying to find out why my Sync info on the website is wrong and I can't download any updates from that website.
This is what she has found out so far and has reported it to the appropriate department.
I quote Kim here: "The problem with this account specifically is that: www.Support.Ford.com pulls information from a different website called PTS, which is showing that the latest update for your vehicle is V3.5.1 instead of V3.6.2. The SYNC website recognizes that you're at the latest software, but is showing the most current update available on PTS instead of what has actually been installed."
You were the first one to bring the concern to my attention on this forum, GrySql. Thanks for working with me to help pinpoint the issue.
If anyone reads this and notices that: www.Support.Ford.com is showing that an incorrect version is installed on their MyFord Touch system. PM me your name, VIN, mileage, and phone number. Although we've verified that there is an issue with the website, I'd still like to continue reporting each case of this happening.
I wish that when the FFH gives an electronic sensor warning, that the reason for the warning noise and message that pops up on the left display would latch in until acknowledged by the OK button. A warning from the front sensors for example ( I think )will give a single "ping" and flash the message about the problem, but it appears and disappears so quick that I'm not sure what the warning is about If the warning is worth issuing at all, it should be "UP" long enough to be understood. I believe that the different systems e.g. front sensors, back sensors, lane departure etc. use different tones, but when you're moving it's hard to filter the difference quick enough to take the proper action. If you need to alert the driver to a problem, please make sure the message is received by the driver.
Thanks for taking in our issues,
Unfortunately, this is a little out of my scope. I suggest reaching out to Ashley here: http://fordfusionhyb...ce-rep/?p=71669 or you can send FordService
a private message.
Hello Kim. Welcome to the group. I have a couple of MyFordTouch (MFT) comments and questions.
My main concern is that most of the time, the SiriusXM Traffic is very hard to read. The freeway lines on the map are quite wide and the colored traffic lines are quite narrow. Especially when you have a route programmed, the green line for the route makes the colored traffic line practically unreadable.
I find the map much easier to read (especially the traffic colors) when it is in "nighttime" mode. I have tried to put my map in night mode during the day but have been unsuccessful. Is there a way to manually change it from day to night that I am missing? I've tried doing it in settings but I think all that did was change the brightness . . .
One last thing, is there a way to use the steering wheel controls to go through all SiriusXM stations and not just the six in the current preset box? I would love to be able to just go through the stations one at a time and not have to change between preset 1, 2, and 3.
Thanks again for joining this group and hopefully answering our questions!
I was out of the office on Christmas, that's why it's taking me a little while to get back to you. I noticed your post on the other thread. Here was my response in case you missed it.
The best website to suggest these changes to the MyFord Touch map display is here: http://social.ford.com/your-ideas/ Ford's product development team periodically looks through these ideas for insights and inspiration from owners. I encourage you to post! If you prefer that I document your feedback on your own account, I'll just need your VIN, mileage, full name, and phone number. Send me a PM with this information if you're interested.
Make sure you've done the following steps: Press the 2 gears > DISPLAY > switch AUTO DIM to OFF > set the MODE to NIGHT > press + or – to adjust the brightness.
These are the only settings that you are able to adjust for night mode within the MyFord Touch system.
As far as skimming through your SiriusXM stations goes, pressing the SEEK button on the steering wheel will allow you to go through one set of presets at a time. Holding the same SEEK button down should allow you to scan through SirusXM channels."
