That is the same wording the dealer got from Ford Tech Support but they didn't include the Q1 fix to eliminate the feature if it is not wanted. I haven't experimented with it much, but it reverts back to the gear it wants to be in after a few seconds. That may be throttle position dependent but I didn't have time to play with it in traffic.
They also updated the MyTouch/Sync software and added a new screen which is a composite of the four individual screens in the DIC.
I don't recall if the outside temperature was up where the time is shown on the center display but it is now plus on the DIC.
The tech that did the update didn't know what was changed so we just have to find it ourselves I suppose. Release notes would be nice if the dealer can't bother to let owners know what is changed.
How did you find that Oasis document?

One of the returns on a Google search of: 2012 escape, "live in drive" came up with "broadcast messages" as the topic.
When I had asked my dealer about this capability before finding this thread, the change was news to him, and other folks at the dealership. He was able to get the info for me the next day, including the promised ability to undo it, Then I found the document using the search.
Not a fan of the change as I found it by accidentally shifting while in drive by pressing the buttons. I had a similar feature, and liked it, in my Chrysler 300M and like the Escape, you needed to move to a different shift position to use it.
Completely agree, release/change notes from Ford should be required to the dealer and owners.

1250 RPM after a cold start.
900 RPM during warm up.
750 RPM when engine is at full temp.
In gear or neutral seems to make no difference.

My wife downloaded the software upgrade onto a memory stick and requested her new NAV card on Saturday afternoon. It looks like the SD card got here today, which is pretty quick.

having the same issues and it's on it's 3rd time back in. They say it is normal, it is the computer talking. I am afraid of getting into an accident. They want to put a black box on it. Now the sensors are going off when I am driving, like I am going to hit someone, and there is nothing around me. I think it is the computer, because it doesn't happen every time??? anyone else had this happen?

My sensors go off when it is snowing. I am guessing the sensors are picking up the snow flakes. It is very irritating!
