Seriously, it's not perfect but I feel it works great. It ties into my faithful i-phone 4 and functions fine. The NAV seems fine, the weather and other Sirius stuff works great too. The little compass is cool.

I just posted this so anyone reading here could see some of us think it's all it should be.

Cheers,
Greg

I feel the same. This is my 3rd car with Sync and it works great with my iPhone(s).
The version in the ST is the best yet.

Since you mention it....

I would really like the steering wheel << and >> buttons to mimic what they do on the radio panel (during FM function at least). Currently they only go between presets when pressed short or do some sort of seek that doesn't work right if I hold them down. Is there any way this could be set in a menu option setting?
What is it actually supposed to do when held? If I let go sometime it goes back to the station I was on.

Hi F1ST,

When the SEEK button on the steering wheel is pressed, the radio will tune to the next saved preset for that category (AM, FM, SiriusXM). If you hold down that same button, it will go through all of the channels until the button is released. There is also an option to SCAN through the stations if you'd like to hear a preview of each one. This is in the ENTERTAINMENT section of your MyFord Touch system. Press this button and it will stay illuminated while the SCAN feature is activated. When you hear a song you like, press the button again to stay on that channel.

You'll find more information on page 64 and 316 of your owner's manual (3rd printing): http://www.fordservicecontent.com/F...ner's-Manual-Third-Print_om_en-us_10_2013.pdf

I agree, after reading reviews i wasn't expecting much but now that i have had the car for a couple months i'm surprised at how many people rip on the MFT system in the FiST. Its small but i've never found it too small and its connected to my HTC One before the rpms even come back down after ignition. I also like how minimal it allows the rest of the center console to be.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked when all I used with it was my iPhone. The good ol days .

It seems much improved over previous versions I've used. But obviously not equally compatible with all devices. Great to hear some positive stories though for a change. Forums tend to dwell more on issues than what's working well.

Awesome to hear it, folks! I've already spoken to most of you, but I'll be here if you have questions about your system. :)

I have a question I can't find an answer to in the manual:

If I leave an iPod plugged in to the USB port, will it cause a parasitic drain to the car's battery when the car is shut off?

I can tell you from my personal experience that the USB charging power shuts off when the ignition is off. I had hoped to use the usb to charge my phone while the car is parked, but alas, no power when switch is off.:(

it took a while but, I've gotten used to Synch. While not as smooth and easy a time as I have had with Googles Seach (voice) it works well enough.

I can tell you that if you have a USB charger to plug into the cigarette lighter, that WILL charge your phone while the car is off.

That is true, but I wanted to hide the cord and not use the 12v outlet.

Hey Ronbo,

Looks like Firesail beat me to it! You can leave the iPod plugged in while the vehicle is turned off. It will not drain the battery.
