Gracenote is a pain.
It kills all your album art with genre images.
Switch Gracenote off and remove all track titles with mp3tag.
If you just save the files using their file names alone (plus correct track number) they play in the right order.

F6 is good, I think a good test of it was round 3 big cities in Europe and mostly worked fine the whole time.

Sync 3 doesn't use SD cards for maps.

I believe Sync3 updates via USB or wi-fi.

I'm hanging off from doing that till I find out if they are changing the actual cars maps over to waze, or if that is only going to be an applink feature.

I think Waze will work through the appoint feature at some point this month.

See, what confuses me from applink side is......
"Other SYNC 3-enabled Ford vehicles can receive an over-the-air update or an update via USB to enable Waze functionality"

On my current here maps on sync 3 I think they shouldve made an on screen shortcut to the traffic option as currently you have to show controls then the 3 lines to get into it. I know not everything can be on the screen but feel it quite important to check in on that option.
