So I just saw that the 2013 F150 will have the myford touch and then kinda a updated interior. But then I just think that putting myford touch is a bad idea since these trucks are going for off road and also carrying heavy stuff and those type of owners always get their hands dirty. What do you guys think?
That’s a good point. I guess just follow my philosophy, ‘when in doubt, make it an option’. There’s a market for everything.
I just feel that it’s redundant that they put myford touch on a truck. Now they can put that on Expedition or Navigator since it’s not going for heavy working and most of the drivers who drives these half ton trucks they really care in technology wise (except for some kind of sync, intellilink, mylink, etc) but putting the buttonless interface on a truck’s dash I think it’s gonna make some customers go mad not unless they correct the problem with myford touch.
@LOUDR Luckily, the MyFord Touch system for the trucks was designed to be used with gloves. There are many redundant “hard” switches for controls — and, for the most part, owners of 2013 and 2014 F-150s with MFT seem to enjoy the system.
Okay but compare to say… the GM twins intellilink/mylink and chrysler’s uconnect which one is a better system… for a truck?
Well, the systems are all different from a user experience and interface perspective.
With the MyLink and IntelliLink twins, GM has done a great job creating a system that, for the most part, is quick and intuitive to use. I think the GM systems are very much in line with MFT, especially the version on the updated F-150s that was designed to be used with gloves or dirty hands. Personally, I would never use a system with dirty hands or gloves, but I know that doesn’t apply to the general market. I haven’t had intricate time with a vehicle that has uConnect yet, so I can’t comment on it with any kind of authority.
Is there a time that it kinda froze up on both of the systems?
Yes, there are times when the systems aren’t as responsive as usual… but this is very infrequent.
Luckily, there are redundant “hard” controls for all the functions that matter, so it’s not much a problem.
