    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.

    Multitask reacted to Muzicman61 in sync 1 to sync 2 or maybe sync 3 upgrade   
    If Sync versioning was that important you probably should have considered purchasing something newer than 2012.  I think 2017 was the start of 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 ?

    Download the file
    unZIP the file to where you know it is.
     
    you should get 1 file that has content, and 1 file that is a 0K file ( both are ok ). autoinstall.lst and DONOTINDX.MSA
    then you should get a SyncMyRide folder with files in it, leave them all alone.
     
    If you are on a Mac, it will work, you just need to Create the SyncMyRide folder and drag the contents of the SyncMyRide\filename.tar..... (etc) files into it, and rename them to just the file names, minus the SyncMyRide\. (don't do anything to the other 2 files)
    On Windows it seems to be ok when unpacking the .zip file you get from Ford/Lincoln
     
    On a USB stick (some have luck with 3.0 sticks, most have better luck with 2.0 sticks, what ever works for you). format is exFAT (Or Fat32)
    ONLY have the 2 files and the folder (with other files) on it...  it is safer this way.
     
    (do this in an open area so you don't get exhaust) insert the USB stick, start your car... let it got for 20-30 minutes (or till it tells you it is ok to take out the flash drive, you can leave it in there long after just in case) 
     
    You might have to open the door, and wait a minute then close it.... it should finish, and the verion should show up.... sometimes it takes a minute or two to show up
     
    (being you started with 3.0, it will stay 3.0. just the revision will change (3.0.xxxxx to 3.0xxxxxx)

    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?

    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...

    Ok, then let's see what the dealer comes up with....
     
    Of course the only 2 things that will happen... 1: software update works, 2: replace the APIM with one that works
     
    Good Luck

    Multitask got a reaction from JetFixxxer in Which module do I need to replace?   
    I'm talking about the sound system, it would say Sony on it... but if it does not, then you don't have an extra amp.
     
    so I take it no sound at all from anything?
     
    The ACM is cheep, should be able to find one for about $50-$75 (from a wreck) , but don't by one that came out of a Sony sound system, it will not work... it's Digital

    Multitask got a reaction from wullie mac in Synce 3 update .ZIP file issues   
    THere should be 2 files and a folder with the files in it...
    One file is the autoinstall.lst
    one is the DONTINDX.MSA (only needed so the system does not try to index it)
    And the SyncMyRide folder
    inside the folder are the xxx.TAR.gz files
     
    as long as you have only those 3 items on your flash drive (recommended a USB 2 drive as USB 3 tend to not work on pre 2018 cars) , and they are the correct ones, then you are good to go

    as has been mentioned, how long did you leave the USB stick in the car?  I would leave it in for about an hour... see if it does anything along the way... if it says it's done, don't believe it, wait the whole hour, and then check... if not, then Talking to Ford might help.  😎

    What version is it now?
    What is the name of the file you got from the owner.ford.com site?
    after you unzip it, are you then copying those files to your flash drive?
    you should see 2 files (one is 0k and is just so that it does not try to index the drive) and a folder with files in it

    Multitask got a reaction from Seacow1500 in Sync 3 by USB   
    OK, good so far... don't move the .zip file to the drive, unzip it on the Mac, then copy the 2 files and 1 folder to the flash drive.
    Make sure it's formated as fat32 or exfat
    and that it is a USB 2.0 drive, a USB 3.0 might work, but a 2.0 will definatly.
     
    the 0k file is the donotindx.msa (btw)
