The thing about forums is very few people are here to complain about how perfect their cars are. This place can be an echo chamber and it amplifies the problems well beyond proportion. That's not to say there aren't problems with PAAK, or Ford Pass, or <insert complaint du jour here>. There are. But they may not be quite as prevalent as us denizens of the mach-e Forum think.

For the record, I've had exactly 2 times where PAAK didn't work and only one of those was a disaster. The rest of the time it's worked exactly as advertised or so close it's not an issue. And I've had none of the other problems.
I'm with you on that. The 2021 MME is for the early adopters who can afford the risk and want to support Ford in making this and future EVs better. If you didn't go into this purchase with your eyes wide open and expected perfection, well here you go.

I'm thankful that I've not had some of the REAL issues that have been discussed is this forum and hope that I never do. If I do, I'll remember this post and have a nice bourbon to drown my sorrows.

My Fordpass experience has been MUCH better since going PAAK less!! The only problem I see is the home page not updating with the correct SOC and range.
Was going to edit but will double post. Seeing your charge/charging. Go to your vehicle page and pull down the page until you get a spinning wheel (refresh) may have to do it 2 3 times until it displays just updated. Once it does refresh go back to your home page. If it is not updated pull it down. Normally once does it. Being within bluetooth range seems to help? This car sleeps/hibernates a lot right now and I have not found any power savings options on this vehicle to date.

That’s a $50,000 to $60,000 cloud. it will be interesting to hear if the GT has the same or new problems or if they are fixed.
They won't be fixed.

You shouldn't buy a Mach-E in 2021, or probably 2022.

Yes it updates and shows the correct info on the vehicle page but NOT on the home page! No big deal, I will not lose any sleep over this! Lol

Not sure when this thread was highjacked. Just installed the latest version and did not find this in all the moaning... but then again did not go through all 11 pages. The secure alerts are now consolidated... Not earth shattering, but I'll take it.

I am at loss from what I am reading ... I never get any notifications that my FordPass was updated, and I never to go App store to fetch for new versions ... when I go to "Settings" I just see the latest version on my iPhone ... right now it shows FordPass version 3.29.0 USA (my phone is on iOS 14.7.1).

Your phone probably has automatic updates enabled.

I've spied on the APIs between FordPass and the cloud. It fetches info about the car to learn what features it has and/or are enabled. Remember this is the SAME FordPass that ICE cars use with completely different features. The app hides/reveals parts of the interface based on the car.

So right now it's hiding the frunk-button because the API is likely telling it that the frunk release is not enabled. Whenever Ford pushes the next Power-Up (OTA) update (rumored for this quarter to include the frunk release) it should magically appear (and would not necessarily require an app update).

To force new versions of iPhone app updates:
  1. Go into the App Store on your iPhone
  2. Tap your little icon at the top right.
  3. Pull down the screen with one finger to refresh.
  4. Slide down to "Upcoming Automatic Updates." At this point, you can update individual apps or just hit "Update All" and make magic happen.

To everyone wondering about the front trunk release, it only appears once your BCM (and maybe RFA) modules have a certain version of firmware. I had it appear for me in 3.28 once I updated both modules myself. And yes, I checked with 3.29 and it still doesn't work (it errors out with "front trunk failed to unlock").

Was wonder where you have been hope all is well. Us being behind frunk first is a far reach ;). Really not a big frunk guy anyway. What do you mean turn itself off it crashes? That is always a hard fix and yes sometimes an update helps.

You won’t get an “update” notification in the App Store for about 24hrs. If you want to update now, go to the Store and search for FordPass. It’ll say “Open” but don’t tap on that. Instead, tap on the pictures below FordPass. On the next screen it’ll say Update.

This is just how IOS works with updates. There is a delay in getting the notification but you can update now if you follow steps above.
I did what you said about update now, but I don't see Update.. please advise.. Thanks..
