Miles/charge screen is new. That is not on the 2013-2016 Fusion Energi AFAIK. Your C-Max is 2017, right?

Is the Go Times something simple like a time zone issue in MFM or your car? We've had some issues when doing road trips in our Energi & crossing time zones. There is a time zone setting in MFM for the car. I believe all the cars default to Pacific Time when you first add them to MFM. If the car wants to precondition at 8:00 am Pacific Time it won't precondition at 8:00 Eastern Time. It appears that the command to begin preconditioning comes from MFM server & not from the car. We had times on road trips where we had changed the car time to the local time, but since our MFM time zone still showed Central Time the car did not begin preconditioning for us. Once I adjusted the MFM time zone to the local time zone our issues were solved.

C-Max is a 2016--they aren't selling 17's yet.

Display is Sync 3, not My Ford Touch--I think that is the issue: They haven't worked the bugs out of the system. It properly highlights the next go time, just doesn't do anything (then properly highlights the next one, etc.). Go times worked once... I have some time to fiddle with it :)
