    Ford Smartlink 2010-2016 vehicles

    I't looks like Verizon will be providing the the network and data subscription. But at $17 a month (and a two year commitment) plus additional data charge if you use the WI-FI feature is a non-starter. Smartlink is DOA.

    Power outlet on back of center console coming loose

    I knocked mine apart by hitting it (with an adapter in it) when I retracted the back seat. That being said you can pop it on and off also. I believe you can disconnect it from the wire harness. No need to go into the console.
