    New maps coming Sep 2022

    moving the files to a flash drive now... says it'll take about 2 hours.... might update them tomorrow... I also use the Google Maps for most things... maps built in for when I'm not in a place to get a data signal for google maps...

    New maps coming Sep 2022

    I have mine.... will update them soon...
  3. The radio is not in the APIM, so you would keep what you have. car-parts.com is a good place to start for replacements. Also, what is the reason you want to replace it.... details....

    It will also depend what Apple Product you are using, and what Version of the iOS it is possible that the part you got is not for Sync 3 but just a replacement for Sync 1-2

    Sync 3 DAB Station List

    Then time to take to dealer if it is under warranty

    Sync 3 DAB Station List

    Dirty screen... it is possibly picking up some static from the screen....
  7. Known issue... you might have to revert to the earlier version, or take it in to get the APIM worked on....
  8. Me too... although if it's free, I will update it... otherwise AA and Google Maps are fine.... and before anyone asks, you have to have Sync 3.xxx (maybe Sync 2) before you can use Android Auto, or Car play.....
  9. Sorry, I mistyped, yes it is 2020 maps.... and if I remember right, the sync 1 boxes were updated with a CD rom.... either way... better to replace the whole unit with a 3rd party unit (Pioneer, Kenwood...)
  10. And being that it is an 11 year old vehicle, it will NOT be the most recent, nor even close to that, of the maps. I have a 2020 Lincoln, and 2018 is the latest maps that are available from the web site..
  11. Cheeper and better to just do it with a 3rd party unit.... crutchfield.com is a good place to start

    Sync 2 upgrade

    the vid will show that it is not just swap, but a LOT more... worth it in the long run, just not easy.
  13. Might have to create the correct ones, then it might allow you to then delete the old ones..... I never used 3.3 much.... 3.0 and 3.4 mostly....

    Change home address

    Try adding a new fav... once you know it is right, then delete the old one.... see if that works.

    Change home address

    do a google search for ford sync change home address there are several options there , one should work....
  16. Sync does not exist for something 1997, so it is really hard to say... could be a lot of things... does any other phone(s) work with it? From the Sync wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Sync Initial release September 2007
  17. Has the dealer looked at your issue? After 2 failed cards... would make me think it is a defective reader or something along that line...

    Ford Pass

    If it happens all the time, take it to the dealer, have them hear it... maybe they know what it is...

    Ford Pass

    Here are the questions... do you hear the sound from the phone or the Edge? Does anything not work? Either on the phone of the Edge ? Do you have notifications sound to be the mechanical sound ?
  20. Yes, there might be updates at all ends, Samsung, Android Auto, and of course Sync People are not perfect, so anything they make is not perfect. Sometimes it takes a while for everything to 'line up' and work. My 2020 car has been telling me the phone is not compatible, but then after clicking 'OK' it works just fine, but only on thie revision of the Sync software. Maybe (when it comes out) that will get fixed in the next revision.... Hoping that someday it all works out for ya...

    SYNC3 and APIM reprogramming

    The time is probably what they are charging.... being that you already did work as a service writer, you should have known this.... When they talk about 'net speed', I'm sure they need to download it themselves... so it depends on how fast their network is... 😎 yes the USB part is fast, but it takes time to get the file(s)

    No AM stations on HD Radio

    Oh, and as far as I know, AM does not do HD, only FM

    No AM stations on HD Radio

    go to a dealer and see what they fine... You can also do the 'factory reset' (only purges settings, not files)

    QWERTY keyboard?

    no nuts, allergies , they would kill me

    Nah, they should just skip the brownie mix.... 😎
