  4. I know this was about Android, but if you have an iPhone, you can use the Siri shortcuts hack that essentially eliminates the need to use the app. It’s faster and much more reliable as long as Ford’s servers are functional. Check it out here: https://www.reddit.com/r/shortcuts/comments/hmgxn5/fordpass_shortcuts/
  5. So the car runs fine, but you will not buy it because the app does not work? ugh....
  6. This is certainly on the list of reasons to avoid a Ford product in the future. They must have hamsters running the technology side and simply don't give a sh*t.
  7. Oil life and odometer are still there, at least in ios (app version 3.19.1). Though the entire vehicle page has gotten very erratic in the last few updates.
  8. Oil life would be nice... but the O, I can look at my car for that. 😎 The Lincoln App for me wasn't working for a while... crash, or it kept thinking I was in Detroit... took them 4 months to get it so it was working again... So maybe in a few months it will for you.
  9. Agree with Multitask... useless since it no longer reports the odometer reading and oil life.
  10. not a big loss... I never used it anyway.....
  11. More updates. I went out to the driveway and first did a Sync3 System Reset (good news is that I got Voice Recognition back that had disappeared). Then I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Then I cleared both the app cache and app data. End result is that it still says "Unfortunately FordPass has stopped", so I'm inclined to think that my system requirements info is the correct one. Found a reasonably priced new phone with Android 10.0 but it's out of stock (chip shortage probably) and won't let me even backorder it (half the price of the one at Amazon). So, no FordPass for me. For a while.
  12. Conflicting info. That never happens......
  13. Probably still using Windows XP, or System 9
  14. I Googled "Phone Requirements for FordPass" and came to a link that had the info I posted. I'll try and update this post with that. Interesting that your info is dated later than mine, BUT that doesn't explain why the app hasn't worked on my phone since late January, even with the constant app updates. Edit: I typed in "Android Requirements" in the FAQ section of FordPass in the FordPass section of the Ford Owner site and this is what it shows (I did see a date yesterday of sometime in Feb. '21). This morning, I found a slew of postings about the inop app over the past 3 years and they all say that I need to perform a Sync3 Master Reset. Which makes no sense because the app doesn't work when I'm nowhere near the car.: Question: android requirements Answer: FordPass Phone Compatibility Android Software requirements: Software version 8.0 and up iOS Software requirements: Software 13.0 or later Apple Watch 6.0 or later Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
  15. Do you have a link to the February 2021 Ford post? According to the listing of Ford pass, it requires 5.0 and up.

  16. Since my Samsung Galaxy S6 stopped communicating with FordPass after January 2021, I finally dug a little deeper, and the subject is what I've discovered. I need to upgrade to at least an S8. Since my phone meets my needs for now, bye, bye, FordPass. This was posted by Ford in February 2021.

    Hi jj. As Multitask asked, what do you have, what are you attempting to do? More information will certainly be helpful. What vehicle and model year do you have? What version of SYNC and version number (found in SYNC settings)? What are you attempting to do? What have you attempted to do? From where did you download any SYNC files you are trying to install? What instructions did you follow...etc. etc. The more information you provide, the better the chance someone may be able to assist you. Get back to us and good luck.

    doubt you'll get a response from Ford on this.... What do you have, what are you attempting to do?

    Updating to 4.6

    it might be 3... it's been a few years since I've done that... like I said, make sure it's USB 2, not 3.... I've tried a few USB3s that I have, and none work... so I always use a USB 2.... slower but it works. Sync 2 can be very picky....

    Updating to 4.6

    I will have to check if it’s two or three I’m not sure about that. But yes there’s nothing else on the drive and it’s formatted as fat32

    Updating to 4.6

    Make sure you are putting the files and folders on a USB 2 flash drive, not a USB 3 drive... there can be issues there. there are 2 files, and one folder also , make sure there is nothing else on it... and it's formatted as fat32 or exFAT

    Updating to 4.6

    Are you sure you have the USB properly set up? I would check the setup and try again. One thing to note if you have an iPhone. Updating to 4.6 will break the ability to use Siri. I don’t know if Android phones have a similar problem with their digital assistant. I had to roll back 2 vehicles to 4.4 to get back the old functionality.
  23. I was informed that I have a new update. But when I follow the directions and plug it into my radio, I get "File not Found". It seems from all the info on the web this problem has been around for years. I cant beleive Ford hasnt fixed it yet. Is there any fix? By the way I have a 2012 F2 50 with sync with voice activated navigation

    I see this problem has been around for quite a while. Here it is 2021 and I am having the same problem. Did Ford ever find a fix?

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Hi NCE. It all gets very confusing...and the deeper we look the more confusing it gets. lol However...for the 2017 model year Fusion, the "Drivers Assist Package" (90A), officially named the "SE Luxury Drivers Assist Package", actually required the "Technology Package", not the "Luxury Package". So you could have ordered it with your "Technology Package" equipped 2017 SE. I know...Oy vey. Good luck.

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Deleting the app, doing a reset of the Sync 3, and reinstalling it might work https://www.ranger5g.com/forum/threads/how-to-master-reset-sync-3-to-setup-activate-ford-pass-app.1859/ From a truck forum, but the same principle applies

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Yes, I did see the Drivers Assist Package as well. BUT, it required the Luxury Package, that I didn't want, so I skipped the whole thing. BTW, I just saw in the Owners Manual how easy it is to do a reset, so I'll do it next time I'm out and about.

    voice recognition not ready 2016 ford sync 3

    Hi NCE. Yes, you are correct and thanks for adding that information. Just checked the Dealers Order Guide again, and now realize I did not read far enough down the options list to see that SYNC 3 was also included in the 2017 Fusion "Technology Package". I also just noticed that "SYNC Connect" is included when the "Drivers Assist Package" (90A) is ordered. To avoid any future confusion for others who may read this thread, I will edit my previous post to add that information. Good luck.
