2016 Ford Focus ST3
Seems like the screen at times has some flicker - like sub 60hz flutter - anyone else notice this?
Happens more often when in "home" mode and the map has a lot of stuff on it - like the screen can't refresh fast enough
Toadster and Skywalker15,I notice a flicker in the nav portion of the home screen. Like Toadster said, it's like it can't redraw fast enough.
Glad to see I'm not the only one.
I also see a flicker in the backup display. I attribute that to it trying to adjust exposure/brightness as I back out of the garage.

Thanks Cara!Toadster and Skywalker15,
Try performing a reset on the module to fix the flickering. To do so: Select radio > Hold the power button + the right-seek button at the same time for up to 5 seconds.
Keep me in the loop!
I get this in my 2017 FoST mainly occurs when at night with the dim when it's not full like half. But yeah I heard it's an issueBeing that you don't have a CRT, it's not a screen refresh issue, however, if it's primarily noticeable when dim, it may be a matter of LED dimming by way of PWM (basically the LEDs are turned on and off very rapidly in order to make them appear dimmer), though that's usually what gives you flickering LEDs on camera and rarely noticeable by eye. If that is the case though, your only real solution would be to turn the brightness up a little higher.
Unless of course it's just a software screen redraw. Does it happen specifically in any one mode (by that I mean SYNC, Android Auto, Apple Car Play) or all modes? I've never noticed it myself. I'm almost always in AA mode. Of course, if I look at my screen now and see a flicker I'm going to be pissed at you guys for making me see it!
Update: I did see the auto dimming flicker last night. A little annoying, but worth it for the feature because the auto day/night is worse when it goes back and forth, so I need brightness adjustment on the night theme. Still no map flicker in AA so I'm guessing it's just bad software refresh in the base Sync software.
