This is how you enter the MFT diagnostic mode in order to calibrate the touch screen. Before this my touches were too high and I was always missing buttons. There is quite a lot of other information there too. Haven't had time to play with it much. Have fun. Be careful...

To enter MFT diagnostic mode:
- Take out any CD's
- Set to AM/FM mode
- Press and hold CD eject button
- A second or two later press the right button on the center console (ie next song)
- Hold both until diagnostic screen comes up

To calibrate the screen:
- Click/touch/poke APIM. This should be the topmost button
- Screen calibration button is on the right
- You will be asked to touch a series of points
- After this it will tell you to press Enter or Esc to accept or reject. Ignore that and poke the screen to go back
- There is another button for testing the screen calibration. This is a grid which will highlight the grid cells that you touch
- You'll probably have to do this again after a system update

Thanks for this posting saved me a trip to the dealer updated sync to latest firmware and it threw the touch screen out of wack. Everything was reversed this forum is great

But how do you do this when the touchscreen calibration is way off? Any manual controls?
Thanks!
