Sync Update

Anyone update Sync via USB, a new version came out, couldn't get it to load on the van. Called Ford, they stated some known issues with the update and would call me back within 48 hours.

Do you have a 2015? I just checked and the dashboard on my owner.ford website shows that there is no update for the Sync3 system on my 2016. Which is a bummer I have been looking forward to the Apple CarPlay compatibility they announced in Jan.

I was told by our sales person when we picked up the van that Car Play is coming to Sync 3 in June. I won't be holding my breath that he is correct, but I'm also looking forward to it! I've already got it hooked to my home internet when it parks in the driveway, so hopefully it will get the update when it comes out. Be sure to post something if you find out differently! I don't exactly live under a rock when it comes to technology, but I'm by no means an innovator.

Yeah Matthew, I will believe that when I see it.

I am not sure of the first 2017 build date but my guess is we will get the update on that date or slightly later. My understanding is that the SYNC3 hardware is the same in the 2017 but since we know those will have Carplay I'm assuming they aren't going to be concerned about pushing it out until they have to with the 2017 builds.

Which is too bad, I'd be happy to beta test it.

I have an android phone which the USB does not seem to support. I guess I'll have to try the laptop when the update comes out.

The SYNC3 update is supposed to support Android Auto as well if you have a reasonably new Android device.
