    Thanks, I'll down load it and try. But, the MapQuest issue remains a puzzle.

    SYNC and MapQuest

    Lewisra: I doubt my 2011 has the App Link feature and I also have My Ford Touch, which I don't think is compatble.

    SYNC and MapQuest

    AZwoodman, to find your version, on the home screen press settings, then in the next screen the help button, the next screen shows your information and the 3rd line your software version (for my 2011 it is 3.08.15128-newer vehicles will probably be version 4. something). You can also call it up...

    Rearview Camera Problems

    back up camera Had mine go out, also, and dealer repaired it (didn't give details) and it took some time. When I got it back, I now have a 3-tone chime every time I use Reverse. Very annoying and dealer says "it's normal." With traffic sensor and reverse chime, wow what a concert, NOT!

    Travel Link Buffering icons

    Sorry, gotta disagree. I still get the buffering icons and dial up (voice command) to "Services" Then request "Sports" and let the "man" dictate my options, and bingo, the "Buffering" icon disappears. So it has to be something with a phone and satellite connection.

    Travel Link Buffering icons

    Appreciate your input, however, connecting to the dial up Services did remove the buffering icons when asking for Weather, Sports and Traffic, and the system works. I will check out the links you suggested, however.

    Travel Link Buffering icons

    This is a long story, but worth the read. TravelLink..How useful when working and how frustrating when the screen shows those “buffering” revolving icons in front of the of the menu choices. Calling Sirius for assistance is joke, no, not really a joke but a frustrating example of...

    Shift into REVERSE, is there a three-note warning?

    Yup, Gen2 3.2.2 Dealer says can't figure it out, seat belts secure at start and no change. I was hoping to disable the chime entirely. Thanx for your advice, however.

    US Vellular and Ford Sync

    No "Services" via voice control button

    OK, next oil change will do, But, please keep us posted as to your fix. Any news on the US Cellular and Vehicle Health Report?
  27. B

    No "Services" via voice control button

    No, I cannot. It says "do you want to download the destination" and I answer affirmative, next I hear an intermittent buzzing for about 2 minutes and the call ends with no destination saved. ???:confused:
  28. B

    No "Services" via voice control button

    When I select "connect to services" on the screen I get a response that says "call cannot be completed at this time." BUT if I ask the VOICE to CALL, the prompt asks "what name?", I say "Services" (because I saved the dialed number to my phone book), and PRESTO it connects. What the heck is...

    Voice commands just plain stopped working

    A Master Reset gave me the voice back and eliminated the "ear and listening" notations. But also deleted my wallpaper apps and all stored destinations.

    :( Thanx, You Know, Sirius and communications with dealers is non existent, This is another example to add to the Vehicle Health Report issues with US Cellular.......frustrating....so much potential, so little communication!

    Travel Link screen options?

    Is there some menu setting that allows different choices/options for "Ski Conditions?" I use the other services but have absolutely no use for "Ski Conditions." I'd like to see stock quotes instead. Is this possible? Thanx.

    Vehicle Health Report & US Cellular

    The upgrade eliminated all info on MFT. Had to re-enter Favorites in Nav as well as re-sinc my phone, so I don't think that's the [problem. Thanx for the info, however.

    Vehicle Health Report & US Cellular

    Anyone with US Cellular having difficulties running a Vehicle Health Report? I get a connection and the notification call ended then a report/voice saying "cannot run the report at this time, try again later." This happened after the upgrade.

    Shift into REVERSE, is there a three-note warning?

    OK, had some warranty work to replace back-up camera, Now I have a warning chime whenever I put Ex in Reverse. It's a three-tone chime similar to the tone when the vehicle is started. Dealer says this is normal and all new EX do this. VERY annoying, especially when combined with the "getting...

    Reverse warning chime?

    :eek: OK, took the Ex in to retrieve my Active & Fixed reverse indicators and when the dealer performed Sync update, I now have a warning chime, similar to the ignition chime, whenever I'm in reverse. I'm told this is now standard on all new Explorers. Question is, do you owners of 2012 and...
