    Setting button no menu

    Yes, and possibly no... it will depend on which one you buy and how it gets programed. I did the Sync 2 to Sync 3 on a 2013 and 2018 Fusions, and all the buttons still worked... but I did not program it. Dan did (person who does the programing) If you are on the F150 forums, you can ask and get a response from someone there that has done it.

    On another note, if all that is not it and you have to replace a LOT of things, Card is over 100, APIM is 100-200. Might want to look into moving it to Sync 3 http://www.2gfusions.net/thread-3881.html This will guild you , yes it's for the fusions, but it's the same hardware. car-part.com to find used Sync 3 parts

    There are a few things that it could be Nav card has gone defective... see if you can borrow one to test (dealers should be able to assist) Card slot could be defective master reset can also be done by holding the power and seek forward buttons while the sound is on. Then go through the menus (you will hear the test at the start and can stop it right away) If it does not allow for that, then the ACIM might have gone bad.
  4. So 3 foot works, but something longer does not... so yes, I think it's a limitation of sync3
  5. Then I would think it's a limitation of Sync 3.0
  6. One way to know , is one of the phones that works fine in the other vehicle, try it with the longer cord... if it does not work, then you would know.
  7. If you have tried many 'good' cables and they do not work, then I would think that there is a limit on length.
  8. The factory reset just gets rid of the settings, does not affect the version. Usually it is found in the 'about' area, and would be called Factory Reset (or something really close)

    SYNC 1 - Nothing...

    A 2015 with the 4" screen was Sync 2 but as the title Sync The APIM is the unit that is the main brains of this whole thing.... Best to get it tested.... car-part.com if you want to see how much a unit would be from a 'wrecked' car.

    Indexing USB then nothing.

    Ok, then where did you get the file from? If not owner.ford.com then I'm sure it's either the wrong one, or just does not work.

    Latest Sync 3 Map Update Issues

    Make sure the flash drive is formatted for Fat32, or Exfat, and MBR also, follow the instructions 100% , i.e. there should be 2 files in the root, and the other files in a seperate folder. (it has been a while, I'd have to look at home what the files would be)

    USB Drive Song Metadata

    If you are putting in the center consol, I would assume it should be.... but then maybe your 1T takes a lot more than what is there...

    USB Drive Song Metadata

    Kewl... for me it was the MBR that was keeping the system from seeing my USB3 drives...

    Indexing USB then nothing.

    Sync and the Maps are different installs, and different files. Sync will have 2 files and a folder with multiple files in it Sort of like this below , if you download the file and do not get the SyncMyRide folder, then create one, and move the tar.gz files in it. make sure you rename them without the SyncMyRide as part of the same . They used to come that way, but the last time they did not for me, they came correct. Could be the version of the OS I'm useing , or Ford fixed the issue. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Indexing USB then nothing.

    It does not matter these days, I do it on my Mac all the time. there is a file that NEEDS to be there... (in the root, it comes with every download) even though it is a 0k file. NONOTINDX.MSA Then the vehicle will not try to index it... if it's there, and it is still indexing... then something did not happen right.
  19. I was thinking about this topic and something came up that was almost like this... I have a 2020 MKZ-Hybrid, and using 3.4, and a 7th gen ipod touch... it's on IOS 15.x the other day it just stopped putting out sound, and I think I know why... once I updated to 15.1 (yes the beta) it was playing sound again.... So I think it is because apple has a limit on when the 'beta's' stop working right.... had I been on 14, it might not have happened... Something to chew on.
  20. Sync 3 did not come with the ability to do that... only Sync 2 There might be hacks, but why?

    Sign recognition and maps

    BEcause we do not have that in the US, how does that work? Do it just beep when you are going to fast?
  22. Plug it in, your phone should do the BT for voice... ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  23. Probably a flag is set when you open it on the ipod, and then sync sees it.... no flag , then it is not seen. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  24. I have Sync 3.4, and the 7th gen touch, and it works just fine.... although it is still (less than before) skipping about 1/4 second of time with in some songs that I know are ok otherwise. But so far it likes it just fine. My ipod touch was setup using a Mac, not sure how it does with ones setup with Windows...
