    Sync 3 display mirrored

    Anyone know why my screen is split and mirroring? Basically if you split the screen down the middle the left side is mirroring the right side. This thing is not letting me post a photo or I would. Thanks!
  3. Even 20 years ago that would have been a great buy. I would have jumped on that in a heart beat. But I get it that sometimes it's more important to put food on the table and keep the lights on.

  5. When it comes to the gas car Mustang, they have screwed up the looks a few times.... I almost got a '65 2+2 in baby blue for $1200, a few decades ago... wish I had the $$ then...
  6. Personally I think they destroyed the look. I just saw a new 2021 Mustang Mach 1 in my dealer's showroom. Now that is a sweet looking ride. And only priced at $60K.
  7. Sorry, I don't know the Lincoln system. 🤔 google says: - https://owner.lincoln.com/support/how-tos/sync/sync/downloads-and-updates/how-to-install-sync-updates.html#/install-in-vehicle - https://owner.lincoln.com/support/how-tos/sync/sync/downloads-and-updates/how-to-report-sync-software-updates-to-lincoln-owner-account.html
  8. I like the looks, they just needed to call it something else.... But even if they gave me one, I wouldn't have anyway to charge it at home, no hook ups where I am. and work probably charge (no pun) too much

    Sync 3.4.21194 Now Available from Ford

    When I did mine Lincoln, it did not generate a .xml file... so it looks like they don't... can't say for Ford. 😎
  10. Gotta get me one of those Musktangs!!! 🤣
  11. Only Europe for information. Sync 3.4.21194 available today (file date 30/08) Details uploading: A - Sync 3 = 948.4 Mo. B - Data Maps =? only after updating Sync and returning the xml. I do not know yet if I amdoing this update by OTA wifi or by USB key.

    Sign recognition and maps

    yea, being it's new, it should still be under a warranty.... that model is not a US one (yea I know duh)
  13. Hi Graham. Assuming all necessary settings are enabled in your Drivers Information Center, your best course of action is to set up a service appointment so the issue can be properly diagnosed and corrected. There are no other owner configurable or adjustable settings. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Temperature control broken?

    Hi dd. This is the SYNC 3 section, and your Taurus has SYNC 1, SYNC 2 or MyFordTouch. While this thread may be seen by those familiar with SYNC1/SYNC 2/MyFordTouch, it may be better if you post it lower down in the appropriate SYNC 1/SYNC 2/MyFordTouch sub-forum. Good luck.
  15. Hi I have recently bought a nearly new Fiesta Vignale (2020 model), and it has speed sign recognition via a camera. Mine is working only intermittently, goes for 10mins or so then it seems to stick for half hour or more then sometimes suddenly comes back to life. Think I may have to book the car into garage under warranty. Anyone else had problems with it? Ford seem to think it should be reliable and the SYNC 3 maps on the Vignale do not show the speed limit and there is no user way of turning them on – so if the sign recognition does not work its easy to be unsure of the speed limit one is in. Any ideas? Could it be the camera at fault? Have made sure windscreen is clean. Is it possible to increase the sensitivity of the camera? This is not a user function but maybe one Ford can do. Anyone know about this? Really appreciate any help or ideas.
  16. Directly after upgrading my SYNC version in my 2013 Taurus, changing the temperature has ZERO effect on the A/C or heat and the heated and A/C seats no longer function…. Coincidence?? can I downgrade to the original version the 2013 Taurus shipped with? cheers!
  17. Yea, because the OP did not specify what they had, we all assume that they have something that is not standard, i.e. a 2016 Edge that came with Sync3, I think only that model/year did it... kinda like the Musktang is the only one with Sync 4 (or it was the first to have it) an assumption was made here... I also said 'typically' knowing that some early vehicles had it.... 😎
  18. Hi alcohenusa. I thought I was on the Ford Fusion Forum when I answered this question. One of the drawbacks of being involved in so many forums and brain clouds. 😉 That was why I stated SYNC 3 was not available on the Fusion until the 2017 model year. And I was specifically referring only to the Fusion. This is also a good example of why it always helps when a member posts their vehicle model/model year when asking questions. But you are correct that SYNC 3 was available in the 2016 model year on some Ford/Lincoln models. Thanks for catching that and good luck.
  19. Actually, 2016s did come with Sync 3. I know my friend’s 2016 Edge has it. It may not have been available in all models though, but not sure about that. I also did not see where the OP said he has a Fusion but maybe so. Anyway, here is an article (there are others) talking about the update that came out to allow CarPlay and Android Auto to be used on 2016 Sync 3. The 2016s did not originally allow CarPlay and AA. They also needed a new USB hub to support CarPlay. https://9to5mac.com/2017/05/19/ford-carplay-models/
  20. Hi nrupert. Multitask hit the nail on the head. The 2016 Fusion was not equipped with SYNC 3 from the factory. The 2016 models were equipped with either SYNC w/MyFord (base models), or SYNC w/MyFord Touch (higher end models). SYNC 3 was not available in the Fusion until the 2017 model year. So if your Fusion has SYNC 3 now, it means a previous owner installed it. Therefore, it is not eligible to download updates from the SYNC 3 update website. You will need someone to supply files to you (as you are trying for), or find another aftermarket solution. Good luck.
  21. Typically a 2016 would not have come with Sync 3, Sync 2 yes.... so at a guess this is an upgraded unit. One thing to try is look for a wrecked vehicle... get the VIN from it, and see if you can get 2.3 also, you should be able to go from 1.x to 3.0 the APIM does not care that much...
  22. I am looking for a download file of Sync3 v2.2 (v2.3 might work) for an APIM with Navigation. I'm suffering from one of those common issues where a 2016 with early Sync 3 will not update correctly from version 1 straight to version 3. A file of v2.2 would help me out, unless someone has found a better solution. As it currently sits, my unit says it is in v3.0, but voice recognition is "not ready" and I cant use Andriod Auto or update maps due to a faulty update. Please help.

  24. Is there anyway to sort favourites alphabetically. My old 2015 fiesta sat nav was able to do this, but I cannot see how to do this in Sync 3. Would appreciate any comments or help. Thanks.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    Yah, I figured they had a way to prevent that from working. Sucks I never got a complimentary update for my Fusion.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    Hi Muzicman. No. As BL stated, there is a license file tied to the individual vehicle VIN, which is necessary for the installation. You would not have that license file for your 2017 Fusion, so the installation would fail. Good luck.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    Updates are VIN specific. The other vehicle would kick it back because of the incorrect license file.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    So would it be possible to take the complimentary (free) update for my wife's 2020 Edge ST and install it on my 2017 Fusion Energi? My guess would be not but am hopeful.
