    hey guys in case you hadnt heard, yes the rumors on a MFT rebuild are true.

    Please read this PDF for very detailed information regarding Ford's timeline and direct approach to serve their customers and current owners of MFT.

    i think you guys will find page 3-4 of the pdf most helpful.

    This page details the new features of the rebuild and how ford approached the corrections.

    FANTASTIC! It looks like this is everything we'd hoped for.

    Highlights:

    "Will the system still have black screens or reboots while driving? No, we do not expect customers will experience these issues anymore."

    "When will you offer the Performance Upgrade to existing owners? Concurrent with the 2013MY
    vehicle launches early next year, we’re planning to mail a USB flash drive with the software to owners of
    2011 Explorer, Edge, 2012 Focus and 2011 Lincoln MKX for self- installation. Owners will also be able to
    visit their local dealer and have the software Performance Upgrade installed."

    "How much will the Performance Upgrade cost current owners? The Performance Upgrade will be performed at no charge to existing owners."

    “The response time of the touchscreen and voice button is at least twice as fast as the current system. As well, the transition time between screens is significantly improved.”

    Also, looks like a new SD card with updated map info!

    Ford must be watching these boards!

    GREAT INFO. If you could get pics jcerrion that would be fantastic!

    great news....BUT, they don't mention 2012 explorers.....

    "When will you offer the Performance Upgrade to existing owners?

    2012 owners didn't complain enough so they figured you were fine! ;)

    Nah, all;

    "Early next year, Ford is sending flash drives with a software upgrade to approximately 250,000 U.S. customers with MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch, the equivalent system in Ford's luxury Lincoln brand."

    The implication is ALL.

    Sounds good. Now all we have to do is perfect our waiting skills (Christmas will be a nice warm-up).

    Rebecca linked to another press release earlier....This is directly from it:

    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.

    Some have concluded from reading the press releases that the update would include a new SD nav card for free.

    Edit:


    New nav SD card confirmed:
