2013 Ford Focus ST: Gotta Keep 'em Separated
May 28, 2013
I know we've have a couple of issues with the MyFord Touch during our 2013 Focus ST's tour of duty. However, when I've had the car the system was thankfully glitch-free. I had it multi-tasking to the max here with the phone paired, the iPod providing tunes and the navi doing its thing, and there were no hiccups. More to the point, I'd like to give props to Ford for its well-designed "Home" screen.
As you can see here, it displays the four functions (phone, navigation, climate and entertainment) of the infotainment system in a clear fashion. Each one occupies a separate quadrant of the screen and there are no cute, gimmicky graphics to hurt "at a glance" readability. To quickly access any of those functions to make adjustments, you just touch the respective word in one of the four corners.
