Hopefully the high commonality between 2016 Accord, Pilot, and Civic gets an apparently much needed set of updates out the door sooner.
With 2016 technology, there's really no excuse for this antiquated way of getting the updates in the car.
If they are going to put this much code, this buggy, in the car, they need to change that. Ford's SyncMyRide site makes MyFordTouch updates available for download and announces their availability. You have to put a blank USB stick in the car to get some keying/version data written to it, then you put that stick in the computer, they check for the data the car wrote, and DL the correct update. Stick goes back in the car and off it goes updating. (In the MFT case, this is engine running, an hour or more, every setting erased… That last part is the most painful of the whole MFT update process.)
This bit of having to know the magic phrases from the TSB and recite them to the dealer so they can get paid for doing the update is just silly and more painful and expensive for everybody. Of course, so is shipping this much code, this buggy.
