    For those who care. Apple will release iOS 8.1 Monday October 20th. The Bluetooth issues should be fixed with this release. (Fingers Crossed).

    Phone won't connect

    Happy Hump Day All. So here is some information for peeps still fighting the MFT/Apple iOS8 wars. With some testing I have been able to repeat breaking and repairing the MFT connection with both iPhone 5s and 6 Plus. All the reported issues seem to arise when the phone is logged into iCloud...

    New iphone update iOS 8.0

    The fix may come very soon. I say this for 2 reasons. First, Apple is making their announcement of the new iPads tomorrow. I received a call from my Apple Business manager this morning about the announcements. Apple Pay is part of the hype if you will and is going to require iOS 8.1. Second...

    New iphone update iOS 8.0

    Consider yourself lucky and do not be disappointed if it suddenly rolls over and plays dead. I did notice that iCloud has something to do with it. Mine worked fine until I turned on iCloud to get some pictures off my phone I needed for work and then it died BT wise. Reports seem to be all...

    New iphone update iOS 8.0

    As mentioned in an earlier post there is a similar thread on the issue. Again keeping short this is an Apple issue having to do with iOS8 and more prevalent with the iPhone 6 series. 8.0.2 did not fix the issue. It looks like 8.1 which is reported to be the solution is being confirmed by...

    Phone won't connect

    Yes, it is a control issue. Another example is trying to use Sync Services to download a route. It will access the phone, and dial SS but then report connection lost even though the call is physically active. I do have an iPhone 5s with iOS 7 and everything works fine. I have clients that...

    Phone won't connect

    Well again FWIW Using an Apple iPhone, especially with iOS 8 and/or the iPhone 6 series running iOS 8 is not a valid check of MFT functionality. I have both a 5s and a 6 Plus running iOS 8.0.2 and both have every issue that has been mentioned in threads on this site. And the issues are the...

    Police Explorer with no license plate in Cali

    Actually, that dealer issued plates is already in effect for larger dealers. The plates for my new 2015 Explorer were delivered by the dealer. They actually have staff. The inventory manager said it is still an optional program and most high volume dealers are moving to it. Willy in Cali

    New iphone update iOS 8.0

    iOS 8.0.2 was released this afternoon. Based upon information I got from one of my Apple corporate clients, this release should fix a multitude of sins including bluetooth connectivity to devices such as wireless headsets and devices such as MFT. As stated in a earlier post 8.0.1 was pulled...

    New iphone update iOS 8.0

    I have an iPhone 5s running iOS8 as well as the new 6plus. Both are functioning fine on my '15 Explorer with MFT. Try clearing all Bluetooth connections from your phone shut down and restart your iPhone and then re-pair to your Explorer.

    Great Ford Dealerships

    The Ford Store Morgan Hill. I own a Franchise based business and ordered a new 2015 Explorer through our Franchise coordinated leasing company. The Ford Store agreed to accept and deliver my new vehicle and has treated me the same as if I had purchased it through them. I am in Calif and this...

    Remote start smart phone app ?

    Installing or Programming Daytime Running lights (DRL)

    It is an option that can be turned on OR off in the IDS software. For some silly reason in the US when the order is placed in order to select the option a fleet number has to be entered for it to be accepted. I have been looking at maybe adding LED DRL's so asked the service guy when I...

    Installing or Programming Daytime Running lights (DRL)

    So I promised when my 2015 Explorer XLT came in I would post how the DRL's were programmed. Most thought they would come as the amber Parking/Turn lamps. Well I am very happy to report they came as reduced power projector. In the US to order the Explorer with DRL you have to have a Fleet...

    Ford Explorer: Are Your Rear Brakes Dragging... Most Likely Yes!

    There was a recent notice Ford was giving Free brake pads but you pay the labor. Wonder if this is part of the reason???

    Remote start smart phone app ?

    That looks like a kit someone put together for the remote start. From your picture it looks like you got the VSS, the extended antenna which from what I have been told you only need if you have the 2 way remote fobs. It also looks like you may have a hood switch kit as well. On my VSS the...

    So does anyone know if the brackets that attach to the shock towers for the 70 MPH crash rating are available and maybe a part number?

    Remote start smart phone app ?

    So based on your info do you think we will see QNX in 2015 or will it roll out with the 2016? I have always thought it would be ideal if a system such as MFT was developed in a manner that made it just an extension of what ever device the owner used be it IOS, Android, Windows, etc. MFT...

    2015 Sport didn't make it off the dealer's lot without issue - do I have a lemon?

    I know it is very disturbing anytime someone purchases anything and it has a defect out of the shoot. That goes even more for a $50K vehicle. That being said, the fact is you have purchased a vehicle with a great number of electronics and sophistic systems in it and there is a potential for...

    Wiring?

    Personally I agree with Cstoliker solder and heat shrink of course that is making the assumption the person knows how to properly solder without having cold solder joints. Nice work BTW

    Hey Sgt1411. Since you were there in Thursday you may have seen my Exp as it was built that day. Nice to hear the plant is at capacity. Having worked in law enforcement years ago I bet the TDM facility was fascinating. Have friends that own a body shop that does repairs on our Highway...
