I've used it for some exceedingly stupid projects, mostly SYNC 2-3 upgrades on my Fusion/Explorer, and playing around with "hidden" IPC features. And that one time I half-assed an MKZ cluster swap into my Fusion because I was bored, saw a cluster for sale, and had no impulse control.

Last I heard when I left the 2G Fusions group, they were getting close to working out an adaptive cruise retrofit. There's also the above cluster swap (done properly), OEM heated wheel/seat installs, EU lamp assembly swaps, and a bunch of other configuration-based goodness, so it's got potential for sure.

Fun fact: You can pull the as-built for the preproduction Mavericks from the Motorcraft website. I pulled a few to try and compare trims and engines.

On some other Ford models its possible to disable in Forscan until someone takes delivery we wont know for sure if the Maverick will have the option.
It works turning it off on the Bronco Sport.

Looking forward to you wizard pioneers to explore this and tell me what cool stuff I can do without bricking my truck like my Nexus 6 phone. RIP.

But...bricking is half the fun!

Actually, not really. Usually it just throws configuration errors and reverts to a default program.

I will definitely be checking out Forscan when I get my Mav.. I heard rumors about being able to add/replace drive modes, hopefully I can put Eco and Sport on my FX4. Haven't looked into it much yet tho.

Same here. I have no real desire for Eco, but I would like to swap out the Tow/Haul Mode for Sport Mode. But I'm okay using the Tow/Haul Mode as a pseudo-Sport Mode too if not. That's what I do in my Silverado. 😁

I don’t like it, but I’m guessing it’sa nerdy play on the FORTRAN programming language.

ironically it needs the ‘D’... to make all the difference. lol
I feel pretty stupid...it took me reading that three times to get it..haha..
