I was driving along today in my 2013 FFE and had switched to the Navigation screen. Later, I wanted to switch back to the Entertainment screen, but the touch screen would not respond. The beepy feedback sound wasn't even being made when touching the screen.
Strangely, the map was still animating (with my changing location) but after 10 minutes I still could not switch away from the Navigation screen. I also attempted to use voice control, but it too was dead. I finally gave up and figured I would turn off the car for a while when I got home and then it would probably be fixed the next time I turned it on.
But, before I could get home, as I was still driving, the MFT screen suddenly went blank for 30 seconds, then "SYNC by Microsoft" appeared followed by a progress bar saying "Performing scheduled system maintenance" for about a minute. When the system was finally back up and running, all appeared normal. MFT had apparently decided to reboot when it damn well pleased.
Is this sort of thing supposed to happen while driving? Anyone else had this disconcerting experience?
