MyLincoln Touch Hidden Menu

Found this on fordsyncforum.com

Hidden MyLincoln Touch menu:
1) Turn on the Car (accessory mode)
2) Select FM radio mode
3) Hold down the Right Seek & CD EJect touch buttons together (until the screen changes)

You will hear a test tone as the system tests each speaker individually. (14 speakers)

Then you get a Bezel Diagnostics Menu with 5 categories
I would attach a photo, but I don't think that works on this web site.

I know from this menu, its possible to calibrate the touch screen, but I would advise against it at this time.

Maybe someone else has some other hidden menus to add ?

I would like to see photo's, it's pretty easy to add them. You can either upload them to a photo sharing site and link us to it, or copy the JPG's and post it here after uploading.
Or even upload it as an attachment through this forum when making a post.

It appears this web site is still messed up.
I posted a jpg of a hidden menu in the photo-gallery

Thanks for showing us this menu. This might help us in the future with telling employee's what "tools" they can use to help us if they don't know already.

it plays a tone through each speaker, 1 at a time, and identifies which speaker it is on the screen as it goes.

Its hard to understand what this entire Bezel menu is for.
Some menus simply show you the hardware/software revision levels
Some are for "checkout", like the speakers, and the antenna signal strength of the radio.
I think the touch menu is the only menu to allow calibration.
It a very strange mix of menus.
I would think there must be another hidden menu to allow tweaking of settings. Like, a choice to display signal strength of the radio on the screen.
I am surprised there are not more items to calibrate or more items to view
