    • first, there is no DE   second I'd say buy the right harness...
    • I have a 2013 fusion de. Did not come with a camera. It had the 4.2 screen, a fuse in #23 slot and I bought the appropriate harness. My question is, how do I plug the camera into the new harness? Is there another pigtail that I need. The camera connector is not the same as the harness connector and I wonder if I’m missing something?? thanks 
    • Ok, looking at that, the auto instal and do not index are inside sync folder. I will try to move them outside and see if it works 
    • Sync and the Maps are different installs, and different files.   Sync will have 2 files and a folder with multiple files in it Sort of like this below , if you download the file and do not get the SyncMyRide folder, then create one, and move the tar.gz files in it.  make sure you rename them without the SyncMyRide as part of the same .  They used to come that way, but the last time they did not for me, they came correct.  Could be the version of the OS I'm useing , or Ford fixed the issue.  😎   
    • The map files vary somewhat depending on your Sync version. 2.20 maps files: For my 2018 Fusion with Sync 3.0, it is 12.9GB.  There are 7 files in the SyncMyRide folder and 2 files in the root folder (autoinstall.lst and DONTINDX.MSA). For my 2020 Ranger with Sync 3.4, it is 12.3 GB.  There are 14 files in the SyncMyRide folder and 2 in the root folder (autoinstall.lst and DONTINDX.MSA). Then you need to download the License file and place it in the SyncMyRide folder.
      Sync update files also vary depending on what Ford thinks your existing version is and what you are updating to. The Sync 3.4 update for my 2020 Ranger is 1.8 GB with 7 files in the SyncMyRide folder and the same 2 files as above in the root.  This was going from 3.4.20282 to 3.4.21194. The Sync update for my 2018 Fusion was only 417MB with 4 files in the SyncMyRide folder and the same 2 files as anove in the root.  This was going from 3.0.19205 to 3.0.20204.   While many users have successfully done this on a mac, you may consider using a windows pc to build your USB if you continue to have issues.
    • I am doing this off a Mac and I did get those direction and followed them for the set up.  I am going to try it again, but this time I am going to put each file on the drive individually and not in a file folder containing the 9 files but 9 individual files.    EDIT;  the update is only 1.88 GB and has 7 zipped files.  Does that sound correct?     Will try that and then report back
