    • As far as the version, you should be able to navigate to the 'about' area, and see if you see 'about sync' to get a version #   I seem to remember that 4.4 is about the latest you want to do or get, like Alcoa said 4.6 put in settings that they did not want.  and were at the time able to roll back.  
    • If you can set up a place where I can drop the zip file, let me know.  It's about 97MB.   I really don't think there should be any problem using this, but you never know.  Of course, the worst that could happen is that the system ends up bricked and neither one of us wants that to happen.   I'm not sure what the Ford site look likes for the older vehicles at this point. They stopped providing updates several years ago.    
    • Would be interested in trying that.  I'm wondering if through online updates ford thinks it is up to date but maybe somewhere along the line, it got rolled back. I wish I could tell what version ford thinks my escape has.  Thanks!
    • Hi Python63.   In my 2011 Mariner (same as the Escape), the latest available was 4.6. Unfortunately, in 4.6 they implemented some ‘safety’ features and took away functionality so I rolled back to 4.4 which was the version where they implemented the song metadata over bluetooth.   I no longer have the Mariner, but I still have the 4.4 files.  You are welcome to try to install that update on your vehicle and see if it works.  Of course, this would be at your own risk and results could be unpredictable (or worse).
    • Hi Python. If the Ford SYNC website shows you are up to date, then your current version is the latest version compatible with your vehicle.   Good luck.
    • Just because Ford shows ver 4 is available, does not mean your vehicle can use/take it. Have you tried a factory reset?  all that does is remove all the setting back to factory, NOT take you back to the factory version.
