    Has anyone tried the I'm hot or I'm cold command yet? I wonder if they actually added it in.

    There was always a 'zoom' button. Are you saying that they have changed the name of it.

    I wish the update was there for me to download so I can actually see what everyone is referring to. I'll check the site again tomorrow.

    That has been an option since they brought the temp display back in 3.5.1

    As mentioned, the options screen around backup camera changed a little bit.
    The temp shows up for both driver and passenger in bottom right (even if not in dual mode)
    I hadn't noticed this before, but might not be different but when you pull up climate screen, in the bottom right next to "rear" button, it'll tell you if the Rear climate is on without clicking on it.
    When you connect phone for the first time, it'll ask about 911 assist and about phonebook download on one screen that I'm pretty sure I haven't seen before.

    The curved lines were part of the Park Assist system. I don't know why they would remove them I found them very useful even for manual parking.

    Hmmm... If the magnifying glass was always there, it wasn't turned on by default on my 2014 Limited. I don't remember seeing any options for the zoom in the setting either before the update.

    This one is very helpful. When connecting my phones for the first time it seemed like it just kept asking question after question. Now it asks all the questions on one screen.

    Just got the update installed in my '13 Limited.

    Sorry for the not so great pictures, as I took them at midnight with my iPad.

    A couple of surprises right off.
    On the home screen, the artist and title show up, instead of the station name

    And the backup camera now has "zones" with colors for danger.

    The screen transitions are much faster this time around. Finally some efficient programming! I notice faster responses for every button. No more laggy delay. Maybe this is because the car was really warm due to the long idle and no phone was Synced to it after the update. I'll have to test it out tomorrow with a phone paired and my iPod connected for how responsive it'll be.

    I installed on both my Explorer and Fusion with one download of the Gen 3.6.2. Pretty easy. Took me like 10 - 20 minutes each update. Navigation seems to be more responsive. However, my Sirius Travel Link for fuel information and stuff has not been working lately and the update did not fix that for my Fusion.

    No I'm hot or I'm cold command though. I was pretty disappointed. However, I discovered hotter or colder worked after saying climate. I'm going to see if it'll work without saying climate.

    All in all, I see nothing new except slight changes but at least the screens transition a LOT smoother. So far at least. Props to Ford and the IVT team.

    I dont see much of a change in the User Interface.

    Im hoping the changes are in the operating system.

    Lets hope we have better Bluetooth connectivity with iOS7 devices.

    Was there ever any release notes posted?

    My Travel Link isnt working either, fuel prices has been spinning for months.

    They didn't remove them, just the option to remove them is gone. Before the options were "active + fixed" or "fixed". Now there is an Enhanced Park Aids option with only on and off which does nothing to the curved lines.

    The curved lines also appear on vehicles with BLIS, not just Active Park Assist.

    Can someone snap a picture of the curved lines? my 2013 with BLIS but not active park assist has always only shown straight lines. I just want to see what I'm looking for and maybe I'm misunderstanding something.

    Thanks for the info Riley. I guess I misread your post. It was after all past my bedtime. I read that the default for the lines is now 'ON'.
    I tried again this morning to get the new update but I'm still being told that my 3.5.1 is the latest and greatest available.

    Are you using the correct username, AZwoodman? If you'd like, I can check to see what's going on. Send me your VIN and username in a private message.

    Yes, snowbird, your dealership can perform the update for you. :)

    I responded to your PM, Peter. I'll let you know what I find out.

    Since installing 3.6 the navigation by voice commands is quicker and the cursor on the screen is dead accurate. I love it!

    I'll be interested to see if this fixes my NAV. My build date was later than 1-31-13 from that TSB that came out. And my vehicle never tracks correctly on maps, if I didn't have a windshield to look out of, I'd swear I am always driving in corn fields and lakes!

    I don't know if it is just a coincidence, but my backup camera no longer works following the update. Just goes to a black screen with the message "Backup camera not working. Please contact your dealer."
