Just observed the bubble for this frist time this week. Never saw it before but I figured it was because I do not have many of the assistive technologies (no 360 camera, no copilot).

Any way to ask Ford ?
I asked Ford and the dealer. Dealer shrugged their shoulders and Ford said to ask the dealer. I said I did. They said submit it in for diagnostics I said the service department already messed my truck up enough. If it breaks it breaks. All the while the dealer and Ford have a picture of the dot in question and apparently refuse to ask someone without me giving up the truck. Ford service sucks.

I have had my Platinum for about 6 weeks without seeing it. Then I got a notice about enabling the Truck Hotspot with with like a 30 day trail. I did not subscribe and I think I pushed off the answer.. A few day after that I started to notice the bubble. I wonder if it displays until it syncs with the hotspot of my phone or if its indicating the the trucks hotspot isn't available.

Just something to think about.

I get the same bubble every time I start up. Not a Powerboost though, just the eco.

My truck put a 25 warning in that bubble today. It flickered off and came back on briefly. I tried to get a picture but my phone was in my pocket. I started up the truck and started driving immediately on a main rural road with a 25mph speed limit. I’ll see if I can reproduce it tomorrow and have my phone ready to grab a pic. It seems buggy.

I know. I had to go into the office for a change and was wearing jeans, since our new relaxed dress code doesn't allow shorts like I normally wear. Those jeans are a little tight after WFH for a year. LOL. I was spurting profanities trying to get my phone out of my pocket and by the time I did, the damn bubble went away. LOL. But at least I saw the speed warning for a second time. In my 2018, my phone was always connected by a cable, so I had to pull it out, but the wireless carplay in this truck has spoiled me.

The bubble icon represents the Death Star.

The truck is performing a routine Death Star scan, to see if any Death Stars in your local solar system are powering up their main weapon systems. If none are detected, the icon goes out.

Ford notes that, if the icon stays illuminated, your warranty is voided in anticipation...
