    Sirius xm missing channels in sync 3.0

    If everything is up to date, and no hardware was swapped out (that you know of), and XMSirius asked for the correct # and you gave the one you see. THen I would assume the ACM is defective. You can attempt a Factory Reset, and see if that helps... otherwise time for the dealer (and talk to the place that you bought it see if they will fix under the warranty.
  2. Could be... I have a Gen 7 touch, and I haven't seen that ti's having to 'charge', but then I keep it in the arm rest. I even set it to Airplane mode do it does not 'try' connect to anything... On Playlists, I don't use them... so I'm not going to comment
  3. Not sure about the power on the USB port , but the ipod is always on, and if it's not getting a charge from that port, then that would explain it.... It probably gets turned off when the vehicle is off....

    I've seen discussions about the 'hotspot' and why didn't F/L allow the updates that way... I'm sure they could have , but it's data intensive, and you would pay WAY more for the 'hotspot' than planned.... Cheeper to connect to WiFi and then it's as free as it can be. BUT, there are issues with doing it that way... not horrible ones, but they are there.... amount of time, good WiFi connections etc.... USB seems to be the most reliable, and fastest...

    That is odd... Sync 3.3, have you checked for 3.4 , or at least a later version of 3.3? also, what version of the Android OS ? Does it happen with listening to the radio, or USB device? Also, have you tested it with Google Maps?

    Updated Sync last night to 3.0??

    I don't agree with anything you have said, implied etc.... but then you said this was ended... but clearly you have not given it up.... so this one is on you.

    agree to disagree...
  8. I noticed this a few months ago... and it seems that Google is releasing a fix (soon I hope) where the phone rings when you are in AA, but it is silent.... just an FYI: 😎
  9. Yea, I know I don't post my own questions, but I saw something today that got me wondering.... When I am using AA, next to the time was what looked like a Crescent Moon icon , and I ws wondering if anyone else say it, and knows what it's there for?

    Android Auto icon

    Yup... I know now, it's the weather.... what I was was more than likely a crescent moon...

    I have stated my case... nuff said....

    Updated Sync last night to 3.0??

    And yet again, you have refused to list your proof.... so I guess is is no proof. Or at last none that you have been willing to post as you usually do when someone else asks Maybe you choose not to let me know, but I'm sure others would like to know. Otherwise they would not be here asking, or need here (or other web sites) I have only stated that upgrading to Sync 3.4 from 3.0 is possible, and I always say that it is not without issues... I have 'never' said that it's From Ford or From Lincoln, as I know that it is not. I have stated that I have personally done this and it Does work, but that you can brick your unit (same as you have stated) but wait... you also have stated that it just can't be done. Yes, I have answered a question with sarcasm, and did not add my 😎. And if that person (yes only one) took it wrong, I did then and I do now apologize. Was that underlined and bolded enough for you? and I'm glad you spend all your efforts in keeping track of what I say.... good on you. ================= Back to the question, Ford and Lincoln (I will say Ford from here because it's the same company) have so far chosen to update 3.0 to just 3.0 updates and 3.3 and 3.4 to just the respective updates. Ford could offer more and so far they do not, it is their company after all. 😎 I see other 'updates' out there, and I wait to see how many issues there are with them... so if your vehicle does no offer the latest update, be glad. Even the Factory Updates are buggy, so imaging the bugs you will find if you update to 'beta' or 'alpha' updates.

    Oh, what a great tactic, blame me for what you can not provide https://www.ford.com/technology/sync/sync-4/ Not mentioned there everything else is from 2019 almost 2 years ago... I guess you are less than a 12 year old, because you can not provide an answer. You are not a good representative of Ford or Lincoln.

    No no proof? I have googled it, and saw no proof of what you say. I have also entered that section, nothing there says what you said.

    1: I knew that already, nothing new here. 2: I'm looking for it, just where is this information? link please.

    3.0 is probably as far as you will go 'stock' from Ford Yes there is a way to force it to 3.4, the process has worked, but it has also bricked some users... so if you are a good technical person (and have a good backup unit) you should be able to do it. Do you gain much? well.. depends on what you are looking for... I got my 2020 MKZ in hopes that it might get 4.0, but I'm not sure now... only time will tell if Lincoln allows for this.... being they have not move the later cars from 3.0 to 3.4, I kinda doubt it.

    Does the Focus see your phone, and text messages are enabled on it? try pairing it again... remote the car from the phone, and remove the phone from the car.... it should ask you for permissions on both, possibly a couple times... also, makes sure you are updated on both.

    Updated Sync last night to 3.0??

    Ford/Lincoln set 3.0 to the pre 2018 (some 2017) 3.4 comes with the 2020, 3.3 was 2018 to 2019 and those can or will get 3.4 eventually. 4.0 as far as we know is 2021 and after.... not sure why your tack is off, I don't believe the update affects that. as was mentioned, might want to take it to the dealer if it's still under any warranty and see what they say.

    Map Update Error

    Yup, that could be too.... missing the voice file.... My maps took about an hour going from 1-18 to 1-19

    Map Update Error

    As I'm re reading this ... I posted something to your post about that problem.... could also be a missing file (voice) , maybe re-download the file and unpack it see if there is a missing file... you could try listing them here... I found that if I unpack each file they reveal what they are for.... (then I delete the new folder cuz it's not needed)
  21. What does it do/not do when attempting to use the Voice Commands? Did you look to see if there is an OS update? 3.0 or 3.4 ? did you get it from the Ford/Lincoln site? or 3rd party?
  22. Cool.... if it wasn't for the fire, I would have tested my 6th gen.... Good to know for future people.... 😎

    SYNC3 v3.4.20136 Usb Issue

    That is something that I would think only a Dealer can check for. Was the port replaced, or the APIM that they plug into? Intermittent in what way? Sometimes bluetooth reconnects intermittently... not the phone or the cars fault, because it happens with the last 3 vehicles - 3 phones I've had. Oh... and how did you get to 3.4 ?
  24. Not knowing what that is, I can only assume it's going to get a Modem replacement
  25. Could be... just not new enough.... I don't think there is a list of what 'works' with Sync 3 3.0 or 3.3/3.4
