Default MyFord Touch - Focus Electric 2013 - Super SLOW - No Pandora

Is anyone else frustrated with the MyFord Touch in the Focus Electric? From my research, all of the MyFord Touch systems were updated due to performance issues. It seems the Focus Electric was updated as well, but it seems maybe it did not get as good of an update. I find the interface to be super slow, and I also see reference to features that do not work on MyFord Touch - on the Focus Electric. Thoughts? Feedback?

http://www.ford.com/technology/sync/...entertainment/ - see mention of Pandora integration, etc.

Pandora and all the "Sync Apps" don't currently work on ANY My Ford Touch vehicle.

From what I've heard they will be added at a later date (I'd guess that once Ford is satisfied that most of the bugs in MFT are fixed).

Note that there have now been 2 updates to MFT that increase the performance:
- The main "Performance Update" back in the spring of this year (which really did improve the performance by quite a bit on my Focus and my Wife's Edge)
- A 2nd update about a month ago (but, it appears, that this update is dealer only for Focuses due to an issue with the web update).

I'd guess that the Focus Electric got the first update, but not the 2nd.

Also from what I hear there will be another update sometime late this year (again, though, I do not know if the FFE will get it due to its different software)

Thanks for the detailed information on MyFord Touch. I guess I feel slightly better knowing that the Focus Electric is the same performance as other MyFord Touch users (still slow) - just waiting for a decent update.

Interesting I see the footnote:

*2013 MY Focus Electric screens shown; coming Fall 2012
But I don't see the items tagged with the asterisk (*)?

I believe they are referring to everything under that tab, "The Future All-Electric Dashboard".

Interesting thing is - I believe this youtube from Jan 2011 shows the screens as depicted in the URL above.

My Focus 2013 has none of this in the UI.


I've got Phone, Navi, Entertainment, and Climate.

These are just marketing stunts. I think we will have to wait for another 2-3 years.
