    Just curious, how many of us having problems with MFT (other than the slow screen, etc.) are also connecting an Apple product of some sort either via USB or Bluetooth?

    Please indicate:
    1) Yes/No MFT Issues
    2) Type of device
    3) Type(s) of connections

    Me:
    1) Yes, BT and intermittent other problems
    2) iPhone 3G completely updated software on phone
    3) BT and USB

    I'm currently a med student and former software engineer with Cisco Systems (for nearly 10 years), so tech is pretty important to me. And my wife and I are total Apple whores. So, the questions:

    1) no issues other than it feels very sluggish and is the SINGLE MOST unintuitive piece of software I've ever used.

    2) We're connecting 2 iPhone 4's.

    3) BT

    4) Limited, no nav (have it on all our Land Rovers and miss it)

    A little bit of slowness. My 2008 Sync was much faster.
    - iPod Nano (4th gen) on USB.
    - iPhone 4 on Bluetooth.

    Me:
    1) Yes, no BT issues (but I only connect music via USB - it doesn't work via BT.
    2) iPhone 3GS completely updated software on phone
    3) BT for phone, and USB for music

    I'd suggest a question #4 - what model Explorer do you have, and do you have Factory Navigation.

    4) XLT - no factory nav.

    The only recent significant issue I have with the phone via BT is sluggish response. Don't even try voice dialing for a good 3 minutes after the Explorer is started.

    Minor problem is that in the last week voice dialing is taking much longer than it used to, like 20 or 30 seconds some times to find a name. I'm going to try reloading the address book to MFT and see if that helps.

    1. Yes, occasional BT Audio issues
    2. iPhone 4
    3. Only BT

    Basically, the phone always connects as a phone. But probably 50% of the time the BT Audio streaming doesn't work without fussing...needing to disconnect/reconnect, turning BT off and on, that sort of thing. I can always get it working but it can be frustrating, especially because the same solution doesn't work every time. And odd to because like I said, the phone is connected (and works) as a phone over BT the whole time. It's just the audio streaming that seems to disappear.

    1) None for my 2nd Gen iTouch
    2) 2nd Gen iTouch with the old 3.0 software (Jailbroken)
    3) USB

    The only problem I'm having is playing videos but that is with RCA cables from my camera too. Other than that, no issues.

    Hello all,

    I'm new here and a new Ford Limited Explorer owner... I am using an IPOD with no issues so far via USB. I am having trouble with getting video play back while in park though... I have purchased the cable from Apple that has USB/Coaxial combination. Any help would be great. When I try to view a music video I get an information pop on the IPOD that says please connect to a video source or something of that nature...

    Hope you all are having a great weekend.... Thanks again...

    Welcome to the forum WillClark! Congrats on the new Limited!!

    As to the above question;

    1) No serious MFT Issues - Let me say though it is slow and that makes it an issue to me sometimes! I hope they speed it up and make it cleaner.

    2) Type of device - Blackberry Storm2 - for the next few months anyway!

    3) Type(s) of connections - BT only for now

    4) Limited with Nav
