MyFord Touch Opinions

Hello all,

I'm looking at a couple of sporty compact car options right now, mostly a Dodge Dart GT. It's not as sporty as an ST, but one of the things I love is Chrysler's Uconnect system and touch screen. It's awesome, and the integrated garmin navigation is awesome too.

Can anyone give me a rundown of their experience with the MyFord Touch with Nav? Ups and Downs?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for all of the opinions guys!! Giving me the good negatives while being constructive and the positives. I am a car enthusiast and that's why i'm giving the FiST a look. The FoST is a bit above my price range optioned the way I want, and I honestly don't mind the small size of the FiST. I think the styling on the Dart GT is awesome, but I find myself worried that without a ton of aftermarket help, which there isn't much for it yet, i'll be bummed with the performance. I have a friend at our local Ford dealer that is going to set me up with a test drive, and i'm looking forward to it. As much as technology shouldn't be the main focus in a car, if it has it, I want it to work well or it's just annoying. Thanks again for the opinions!
The bummer there is for 2014 they only put the 1.4t in the Aero model which is fairly stripped down. You can't get it in the higher models anymore like you could last year, and i'm looking for new not used.
And I did test drive one, to get a feel for the manual transmission in the Dart. I wasn't really a fan of the power delivery, obviously that would be better with tuning, but again I don't like being forced to buy a lower model to get that engine.
Hey JBD319,

If you've never used a MyFord Touch system before, this app will give you an understanding of how it works. It's worth taking a look at: I also recommend bringing your phone on a test drive and hooking it up to see exactly how your device will work with MyFord Touch. :)

I downloaded the app, pretty awesome!! Really nice tool thanks for letting me know. I'll be honest, I think I still prefer the Uconnect but I like the MFT as well. Uconnect works so much more like a tablet it's awesome. I don't see peoples complaints about MFT though, I guess the caveat is that i'm using it on my ultra sensitive smart phone so I guess a test drive will be more informative.
