    UBS Skipping & Bad Media

    Are the MP3 files tagged? If so, how did you tag them? How are the files named?

    Sync 1 can't connect phone

    10 year old technology will certainly face challenges with newer phones as Multitask mentioned. But your USB and Line In should work just fine. Agree, try a factory reset.
  3. I agree with bbf2530 but I wish Ford was offering a 5G replacement modem so we don't have to go through this again when 4G is discontinued. Although they claim 4G will be around for at least another decade. It may outlive me. 😉
  4. There is a lengthy discussion on this over in the Ford Fusion Energi forum. A lot of frustrated individuals, including myself. My VIN, like many others, is not in the CSP list. Ford says call your dealer and the dealers say call Ford. The CSP is supposed to cover vehicles from 2014 through 2020. However my 2017 for some reason, is not on the list. So to upgrade my modem to 4G, will cost me around $525 since I'm forced to pay for the installation. Installation is free if your vehicle is on the list. You can check your vehicle here: https://www.ford.com/support/recalls/
  5. As a new owner to a used vehicle, I always recommend resetting Sync to it's factory settings. Then if the problem continues, you may need to look more into the app. Possibly try searching in the Spotify forums. Personally I use a USB stick for my music to avoid any app issues. Just easier for me. Good luck!

    Hello from Ohio

    Congrats on the new vehicle and retirement... You'll enjoy both. I was retired until Covid hit and got "recalled" so to speak.

    Sync 3 apps

    My guess is YouTube would not be allowed for legal/safety issues.
  8. By chance have you enabled developer options on your phone? What is your default USB option? Check the USB settings on your S21.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    Had no idea that was even possible. I've had Sync updates over wifi but never maps. Interesting.

    USB Drive Song Metadata

    I have about 18,000 songs on a 256gb flash drive. They were all ripped to MP3 format at 320kbps. Can't say how many CDs that totals but just buy the biggest flash drive you can afford.

    Latest Sync 3 Map Update Issues

    For Sync3, it needs to be formatted exFat. FAT32 won't work supposedly for Sync3. I just upgraded my wife's Edge ST maps last night. I started the car, then once Sync was initialized and ready, I inserted the USB drive. Took about 20 seconds and then I saw the first message indicating it was updating. I think it went through 3 phases, Downloading, uncompressing, then installing. Took about 30 minutes.

    USB Drive Song Metadata

    The SSD should use only about 2.5W when reading. But a typical USB3 port only outputs about 900mW as far as I could quickly research. So that might indicate you are correct and the car cannot power the SSD.

    Latest Sync 3 Map Update Issues

    Do you have any other USB devices plugged in? You need to remove them first before inserting the USB drive with the update on it.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    Just curious, how large was the USB drive? I figure not much larger than whatever the size of the files are. Perhaps 16GB?
