  1. Me too and I'm not real comfortable doing so. Not sure if Site Admin is monitoring or not. May have to stay away until it get fixed.
  2. Question for the Administrator. The site has become unsecure due to the site certificate expiring. Any chance the site can be secured again. Thank you.

    Unofficial Update - v3.0.19119

    I found update 19119 and the main file is JR3T-14G381-AP.tar dated 5/17/19. I then found (both on Focus forum site) update 19205 with main file JR3T-14G381-AS.tar dated 8/3/19. I am assuming (hate to do that) you don't need to update to 19119 before 19205? Hopefully all goes well. Maybe it will fix the speed discrepancy on Waze.

    Thank you, yes, software. Not holding out hope for map updates though,

    SYNC 3 Updates

    Am curious if anyone in the "know" has heard if Ford is planning any updates to Sync 3? Thanks.
  6. Mine does this periodically also. It has done it on both versions.

    Ford owner website misbehaving?

    Something is wrong with the website. I just logged in and it's doing the same thing. Hopefully Ford will correct it soon.
  8. I think it's sad that you have to pay $150 for map upgrade (NA 1-16 to NA 1-17) which is probably already out of date. Ford needs to bite the bullet and offer it as an incentive. Also, am I to understand that the update is VIN specific? Thanks.
  9. So there is another new build out there? Wonder what's in that one. Anyone know?
  10. I have a 16 Fusion with MFT Sync 3.10 but with the A7 maps SD Card installed. Am looking at getting the A8 card off eBay. They are showing compatible only up to 2015. Can anyone confirm their A8 card # please? Latest Release A8 Map Database Ver. A8 Ford Dealer Stock GM5T-19H449-AB
  11. This past week I traded my 16 Edge for 18 Explorer with Sync 3. It has 3.0, v17276 installed. According to Ford Owner site, it was uploaded with this file JR3T-14G381-AJ Date Confirmed:Dec 19, 2017. Now the site is telling me there is an update JR3T-14G381-AL SYNC3 v3.0, which by the way, is trying to update via wifi on a daily basis, but errors out saying it can't download the file. I downloaded to PC and transferred to my trusty thumb drive. Take to SUV and it goes through the routine, but I get the "You already have the latest update" message. I'm perplexed. I suppose I should leave well enough alone? Thanks.
