  1. I do not believe it is easy to if not impossible.... no space and a LOT of wiring changes... I think you would be better off looking at crutchfield.com for any solutions

    antenna (cord) or something going on with your ACM

    Navigation

    Just remember that Android Auto means you have an Android phone, if you have an iPhone, then it is Car Play and Apple Maps

    Navigation

    AA == Android Auto (used with any Sync 3 2.2-3.4 system) it runs better with 3.0 or 3.4

    Navigation

    Yup, you would think they would have thought it all out, but Sync 2 is over 10 years old, and Sync 3 is roughly 5 years old... so if you are luck Sync 4 which is out for some vehicles is what will do what you want it to do (so they say) I use AA for all voice stuff as Google can accept natural talk.

    SYNC UPDATE

    Yup, should be... I've even found that all the flash drives I have , even ones that work for others, 2 cars don't like the USB3's I have, and will only work with the USB2 so it's always very slow to get it updated. go figure.

    Reset sync 3

    Yup, I would say it is defective... you will have to see if the place you got it from will 'fix' it.... or spend the $$ to get it fixed.

    It is not that intelligent... you would have to say Destination POI, then a city name, it would then try to take you to the City hall... Only Google Maps, or Apple Maps, or Sync 4 seem to be that intelligent.

    Reset sync 3

    Just a stab, you say you can never GET to the master reset, or that you can get to it but it does not seems to work? Also, why are you trying to have that do, what is the underlying issue that you feel you need to do the reset ?

    SYNC UPDATE

    on the flash drive it should look something like this (as has been posted a gazillion times) autoinstall.lst (the script it is looking for) DONTINDX.MSA (this one is a 0k file, only tells the unit not to index it) SyncMyRide (name of the folder containing the files mentioned in the autoinstall.lst (usually files that end with .tar.gz )) (not listed here because the names are different for each car and what OS it is updating)

    SYNC UPDATE

    Nah, fat32 should be ok .... If all you did is put the .zip file in the root, what is NOT what the instructions tell you to do...

    Lost HD Radio

    As far as settings, I believe those are kept in NVRAM, so that you might never lose those settings, unless the battery is not connected for a couple months. 😎 the 12v battery is about the age to replace... 3-5 years is typical.

    No navigation audio

    You are on to something.... could be Siri is not allowed to use voice with Nav, I don't use CarPlay, so I can't test... to the OP if you ask Siri for the time, does it tell you? (when plugged into the car of course) I have mine (Android Auto) set to Mute the nav, and only tell me about important things... it's the speaker icon and there are 3 settings...

    Lost HD Radio

    Just like with a computer, you are changing something that affects how the unit works when you do a software update. So the fact that it failed at the same time, might mean it was going to eventually fail, it just did it sooner. A full power reboot tends to fix a lot of Computer issues, so it stands to reason that doing same to your APIM etc... might help...

    No navigation audio

    Beyond that, Volume for the navigation is separate... and you have to change it while it's 'playing' as there is no (that I'm aware of ) setting for it in the unit

    Lost HD Radio

    One thing to ALWAYS do is make a backup, in case something goes wrong. If you did, restore that. If it still is not working, then the unit is defective

    QWERTY keyboard

    wow, you have a futuristic vehicle, that has a SYNC version that is not 1 or 2 ?

    Qwerty keyboard

    I don't think you can, but if you can, someone will say, and if no one says it's time to talk to a Ford dealer.

    Map Update Error

    I did the maps update while I wqs WiFi connected to my Hotspot phone.... it took some time (about a week) but it's at the new one that is out now (2.20 I think) So that would be another way to get it for 'free'
  20. Ok, yours is at the point where I'm not sure if it came with 3 or you updated the hardware to Sync 3 But at any rate I remember that Sync 2 (for me) had that issue, but it was an earlier phone Unless someone here has an answer, I would take it to the dealer and have them look at it....
  21. Just in case Only when paired with Bluetooth? or also when it is plugged in ? Also, you unpaired it from the phone, did you remove it from 'both' the phone and Sync ? So you had to start pairing all over again? Sync 2 I will assume, but is it the 4" screen or 8" screen (might help with diag)
  22. Hmm... I'm sure that has been talked about before. I seem to remember that there is no fix for Sync 2 that I'm aware of but wondering why the APIM was replaced? Maybe a Master Reset will help ?
  23. While you are driving, when you start up the vehicle? Some will need to know What version of Sync (yes we know it's Sync 2) 8" or 4" screens...etc... details will help others

    What version of sync is this???

    Probably a version of Sync that is for the Transit, but not the 'official' one that you would get in any other Ford/Lincoln Thing I do not see in the pic of the screen... no Nav button so it wouldn't have Nav (Sat where you are) either Very basic..
  25. Multitask

    What version of sync is this???

    From the looks of it , you are from a right side driving place.... and it could be Sync 4, but it will depend on what vehicle you purchased... as was said, you should contact your dealer to see what it is supposed to be
