    Hi Ajmal. Then my only thought would be to ensure any setting that offers an automatic time/date update is enabled. Otherwise, unless another member has some insight into this issue, you will probably need a Ford Dealer to adjust this for you, or diagnose any problem causing the incorrect date to display. Let us know how you make out and good luck. .

    Hi Ajmal. Yes, you mentioned in your first post that it is an Explorer XLT. But again, you still have not stated what model year, and settings/procedures can sometimes vary from one model year to the next. Unless someone else here can jump in with the correct procedure, it would be quicker for you to find the answer in the SYNC section of your Owners Manual. Or if you do not have your hard copy, you can download the PDF version from the website I previously linked to and research it there. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Hi , When looking at the calender page , it reads 2010 as the present year.Pushing the forward or back arrows only changes the Month. I can't figure a way to change the year that shows on the calender screen. Thanks My car Ford Explorer with Syn with My Ford Touch Display

    Hi Ajmal and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. I am not sure what you are referring to by the "wrong date". Also, you do not mention which model year your vehicle is. If whatever you need to adjust is owner adjustable, it will be covered in the Owners Manual. If you do not have your hard copy, you can download the PDF version here: https://www.fleet.ford.com/parts-service/resources/owner-manuals/ Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  7. Hello Every one, i recently bought ford explorer xlt version. The sync with ford touch version is in wrong date. How can i change it.
  8. Earlier
  9. my mkz updated to 22200 & maps 2.21 by wi-fi, so I guess it did so in the correct manner
  10. my mkz just updated to 22200 and 2.21 maps via wi-fi guess it will update to this verson as well
  11. New Sync 3 version available (3.4.22251) is now available for download from Ford. No visible changes from what I can see. USB update on my 2020 Ranger took about 10 minutes and the confirmation file uploaded without issue. Some users have had this version for a while from Cyan Labs. This is NOT for Sync 3.0 vehicles. The latest for my 2018 Fusion is still v3.0.20204.
  12. Things you need to do, regardless delete the phone entry on the car and on the phone. as if you were starting fresh. Also, a master reset will just delete settings, I understand it might also delete some things you don't want it to. But if it is important to get the phone working, then you need to do that. If all that does not work, maybe a trip to the dealer is needed.... Also make sure you are up to date on the updates for each, car and phone(s)
  13. Hi I have a ford S-MAX from 2019, that have a issue with the bluetooth to any cellphones (have try 4). The issues are: That the phone and car won't connect. But sometimes it work. If i try to delete my cellphone, on the radio it won't delete it. But after i try to delete it 3-4 times, it will end up with just deleting the name of the phone. But there are still a connection. If i do a master reset, it will only delete my favorit in GPS, not the bluetooth or my favorit radio stations. So it look like it not reseting it total. But if i have manual deleted the phone, and have an empty name entry in the phone list, and do a master reset two or three times, it will final remove the phone. I have try to have the minus disconnected from the car, but that dosn't fixed it either. Do anyone knows of a other way to do a full reset of the radio?
  14. Hello all, I recently purchased a 2010 F-150 Platinum with the Sony voice navigation radio. I updated the navigation software and installed the latest (and evidently last) map update. along with the Gracenote package. I currently have the V3 update installed in the radio (AR3T-14D544-AC). I have been trying to update to V4.4 with little success. I have tried DR3T-14D544- AE and AF. I also tried AG, which I think is V4.6. My understanding is that I do not want 4.6 as it removes Siri. The list from the Sync website says that there is actually a V4.8 that is available for my system, but I have not found anyone mentioning it any forums. When attempting the update, the system starts It says that it is loading the files and to ignore the first "Installation Complete" announcement. It then says it should take up to 10 minutes for the process to complete and the system will restart several times. It seems to hang at this point. The USB light remains on solid and does not flicker as though any files are being transferred. The system does write back an XML file to shoe that the system has been updated, but the version number remains the same when checked. What upgrades came with the versions later than V3.0? Will later updates allow the text function to work with an iPhone? Are there any enhancements to the sound? What am I missing with V3.0? If I am missing functions or enhancements that are worthwhile, has anyone experienced the same issue and how did you resolve them? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Happy New Year!

    Wishing everyone a healthy, safe, prosperous and Happy New Year! Good luck.
  16. Hi bnewt. Lincoln/Ford always recommend fully updating SYNC first, then performing the NAV maps update. And in some cases, it is absolutely mandatory to update SYNC first. So that is what I would recommend. 😉 Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    New maps coming Sep 2022

    I would do the 3.4 update first, then the maps... just in case the maps want something from the newer version of 3.4 Otherwise it should not matter.
  18. I did the update for 3.4, and then updated the maps.... so yes
  19. Yes it would be free but I ordered the usb I also have an update to sync 3.4 Does it matter which I do first
  20. Did you upgrade your sync 3.4 version prior to installing the 2.21 maps or does it matter which is done first

    Sync 3 Backup Camera White Guide Lines

    Neither, it is done through the APIM I think, and it would depend oh what one you go.... so not software to update (that I'm aware of ) and no camera to update
  22. I upgraded the sync 2.0 in my wife's 2011 Edge to sync 3 hardware with 3.4 software and everything is working except the backup camera white guide lines. It didn't have them with sync 2.0, but I know sync 3.4 has them in my 2017 F150. Has anyone done this upgrade and managed to get the white guide lines (pictured in the attachment) working? Does anyone know if I need to upgrade the camera or is it just a software mod in Forscan?
  23. Well it can't control EVERYTHING. Transmission and engine are controlled by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) Turn signals and wiper speed are controlled by the BCM (Body Control Module) Brakes are controlled by the ABS (Antilock Brake System) module. I'm deleting almost the entire factory audio system. What's there left for it to control?
  24. Multitask

    What does the APIM do?

    In a short answer, the APIM is what controls just about everything. so yes it would be good to leave it in there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Sync#System_hardware

    Might want to explain your post.... if there is a question...etc... have you taken your vehicle to the dealer for them to 'look' at it?
  26. I have a 2012 Expedition EL Limited (with factory sync, nav, and a factory subwoofer) and am gutting the factory stereo. I'm stuck at Sync 1 V 4.0.2. Bluetooth connectivity is unstable with my phone and does not support metadata (Song title, etc.) or switching between Hands free phone and media smoothly. I cannot update the Sync system via USB because Ford will not supply the software to me. Question: Do I need to retain the APIM (Accessory Protocol Interface Module) that lives in the center console for ANY reason? Does the APIM deal with the HVAC system? Does the APIM deal with the gauge cluster? Does it do any translation between MS-CAN and HS-CAN networks? Does the APIM do ANYTHING other than deal with the stereo system? Lots of crap I can delete with this stock Sync stereo system: ACM (Audio Control Module - Head unit in the dashboard) SDARS (Satellite Digital Audio Receiver System - Sync module in the center console) GPSM (GPS module) RCU (Audio Rear Control Unit) Headrest DVD players (Kiddos have tablets, phones, and other portable electronics to entertain themselves on road trips.) Deleting all this frees up space to hide crossovers, amplifiers, Digital Signal Processor equipment, etc. It frees up spare wires in the wiring harness if needed as well as empty fuse slots in the main fuse panel. Going to be putting in a complete aftermarket system: Kenwood DMX-7704S head unit (With Android Auto) iDataLink Maestro RR2 vehicle interface (For steering wheel controls, OBD2 data, etc.) JBL speakers in all doors (862CF component fronts and 862F coaxial rears) Two 12 inch Image Dynamics (ID12D2 v.4) subwoofers Zapco ST-4X amplifier (for front and rear stage) Zapco ST-1000 XMII (for subwoofers)
