    Mine arrived today in Central NJ....

    ...will be installing this evening....you know....once my wife brings home "my" Explorer from work.

    We haven't experienced the magnitude of issues which many here have endured--other than the radio controls being "grayed out" a couple times and most recently--not being able to play my iPod after having streamed music via bluetooth from my phone. Both were rectified by disconnecting the car battery for 10 seconds.

    Definitely interested to see what the changes and new functionality are both like.

    Will report back!

    Tim

    Got mine and I am in Baltimore. The install went smoothly and so far it seems to be a major improvement. I will say that I do miss the temperature on the big screen.

    Well I took my Explorer out for a quick drive, I tried clicking on the nav and everything locked up. The iPod kept playing and I could seek the next song on the steering wheel but it was stuck on the locked up media screen. Several minutes later the nav screen came up and was updating properly, but the red media quadrant completely disappeared. I restarted the car when I got home and it went into system maintenance.

    Do a fuse pull. Mine acted buggy at first but after fuse pull, no problems since.


    I received upgrade in mail today.(I did upgrade last week via syncmyride, just had to wait or A3 card) 5/11 build. Never received an email or letter about it. Just showed upon mail today. I heard about it fom this forum, not Ford

    I talked to a Ford rep at the Columbus auto show and he told me they were sending the updates out in order of when the vehicle was purchased. He said since I bought mine in January I wasn't 1st on the list and should receive within a month. I'm sure this was a load of BS and I'm seriously getting sick of waiting for my car to function properly.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday (2011 Explorer/ took delivery May 2011 from factory order). The Stock 2011 Explorer Forum has a thread similar to this one and it looks like people in California have either gotten them over the weekend or are getting them now. I was surprised since I have a pre May 2011 build, I assumed I would be getting a letter saying go to the dealer to install, but I got the USB and nav card in the shiny blue package.

    Since the packages have reached both coasts, I assume everyone will have them soon. Couldn't install last night b/c I was stuck till midnight doing homework/study duty for my kids (HS these days is much worse load wise than I remember). I will install tonight and see if the update fixes my Bluetooth Audio/ USB Audio/ Nav bugs.

    Good luck.

    I agree, as I am too sick of waiting for my vehicle to function properly. My 2011 Ex was a 12/10 build date, so if they were sending them out in order of build date, I'd have mine. Again, FORD is 100% incapable of being honest or transparent about the issue... But, I guess we should just be patient and understanding??? I am so sick of this S**T!!!!! SHAME ON YOU FORD!

    You do realize that you don't have to wait right? You can go to the dealer and have them do it?

    That's how I had mine done. I didn't want to wait so I had them do it.

    Why not do it yourself? Saves a trip to the dealer and would take less time, especially if you plan to go to KG in BP

    Once you get it started, you can drive the vehicle, just plan to do it when you have an hour or so drive ahead of you.
