  1. Hi ab123456 and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. It may help others assist you if you provide your vehicle model, model year etc. Good luck.
  2. Hi mcwell and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. If you do not have the proper tools to diagnose this issue (most people would not), I recommend you go to the Parts Department of your local Ford Dealer and ask them what the correct part number is for the APIM in your vehicle. Have your VIN handy. While there, you can also get a price. Then take the part number/price and see if you can find a better price from a reliable online Ford Part seller or other Internet sources. Just keep in mind that if you do not have the problem properly diagnosed, you may wind up spending money to unnecessarily replace parts. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Hi Sporter. Most Dealers will not perform and/or work with non-factory/non-factory approved modifications, because there is no manual for those modifications, and it can cause warranty issues which could make them legally liable. Yes, perhaps not for your particular vehicle, but it is simply policy. Some Dealers will, but you need to find the right Dealer with the right techs. Perhaps it is a defective USB hub as mentioned. Hope you can get this issue fixed. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Hi Sporter. Blind Internet diagnosis is often a tricky thing. In addition to the advice given be alcohenusa, take a look though these sites and see if there is anything you may have missed: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Add+Apple+CarPlay+to+2016+Ford+Edge+SYNC+3 Keep us updated and good luck.

    Hi Sporter and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. How did you update your system to SYNC 3.0? Where did you get the SYNC 3 hardware and software from etc? I am not sure what the issue is, if you have properly updated your system to SYNC 3.0, have the correct USB hub and have installed it correctly. However, I will add that wired/USB CarPlay is available with SYNC 3.0. I am not sure what the "local service department' was referring to. SYNC 4 does offer wireless CarPlay, but you are not looking for that. Perhaps one of our tech members will jump in with more assistance. Keep us updated and good luck.
  6. Hi Milo. Sorry for the obvious questions, but have you called (or preferably stopped by) and asked the Parts Department at your local Ford and/or Lincoln Dealers? Or tried calling any of the many online Ford parts sellers? https://www.google.com/search?q=Online+Ford+Parts+sellers&client=firefox-b-1-d&ei=6O8ZY4qbL8GGptQP5ru_4AM&ved=0ahUKEwiKr-anqIX6AhVBg4kEHebdDzwQ4dUDCA0&oq=Online+Ford+Parts+sellers&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAwyCAgAEB4QBxAKMggIABAeEAgQDTIICAAQHhAIEA0yBQgAEIYDMgUIABCGAzIFCAAQhgMyBQgAEIYDMgUIABCGAzoECAAQDToGCAAQHhANOggIABAeEA8QDUoECEEYAEoECEYYAFAAWMMHYKAlaABwAXgAgAFeiAGbBJIBATeYAQCgAQHAAQE&sclient=gws-wiz Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  7. Hi Milo and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. In the future, please do not double post questions. It is easier for others to offer assistance if all questions/answers/information is located in one thread. We will leave this thread open for others to assist you, and delete the duplicate thread in the other sub-forum. Keep us updated and good luck.
  8. Hi Rbrown. Not sure what the question was? Also, I have read and reread your last reply, and am having a bit of trouble following what you were trying to say. Perhaps you could go back and edit your post a little for grammar and some more punctuation etc.? Just click "Edit" at the bottom left of the post and do a little rewriting. I can tell you that at least in the U.S., disabling Auto-Stop/Start does not affect/control how long your vehicle can idle. It only turns off the Auto-Stop/Start feature, which turns off the engine at stop lights, stop signs etc. Here in the U.S., the vehicle is limited to 30 minutes of idling while in Park. And what version of NAV maps was installed before you updated? Keep us updated and good luck
  9. Hi gang. Although the OP is discussing SYNC 1 here (not SYNC 3), for the sake of accuracy and clarity, here is some additional information: Currently, the newest NAV maps version available for SYNC 3 is "NA 2 20", and it includes map updates to the 1st quarter of 2020 or 2021 (due to the pandemic, there has been some confusion and conflicting information as to which). The newest SYNC 3 map update will be released soon (NA 2 21?). Hopefully by mid-September. If the newest release follows the normal course of events, it will include map updates to the 1st quarter of 2022. Concerning the OP and his 2011 Taurus with SYNC 1 Navigation: If I recall correctly, the NAV system in that version of SYNC 1 uses an SD card. While SYNC updates can be downloaded for free over the Internet, Navigation updates for SYNC 1 can not be downloaded over the Internet. In addition, there can be a charge, according to region. The OP can contact the supplier (HERE) and see if there is a newer version of NAV maps, available on SD card, for his vehicle than what it now has. Good luck.
  10. Hi shaher and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. Look in the photo you provided. At the top of the photo, there is a link to click to get the latest update. You click where it states "SYNC UPDATE AVAILABLE Click here to get the latest version." Keep us updated and good luck.

    Sync 2 upgrade

    Hi kdowney. This video describes/demonstrates the upgrade pretty well. Take a look: Good luck.
  12. Hi Rbrown and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum. Please keep in mind that we can not see what you are seeing. Can you explain the issue in a bit more detail? Also, what model and model year vehicle do you have? In the meantime, I will try to answer what I think I understand you are asking: First...If you go into the favorites menu, there should be a Delete button next to each favorite destination. That allows you to delete any already programmed favorites, including Home and Work destinations. Next...You can also try a SYNC Master Reset to see if that helps. Follow the instructions in your Owners Manual for the proper procedure in your vehicle. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Hi Muzicman Yes, I understand why you posted. And I am sure someone will jump in if they read your post and happen to have the same issue. However, if no one does, and it bothers you enough, make a service appointment sooner than December. A deaf/blind Internet diagnosis from your description ("a mechanical clank noise") would lead me to believe the noise is not normal. But your idea of "a mechanical clank noise" may be different than mine, and we can't hear it. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  14. Hi JoAnn. Then the instructions to delete an old "Home" address and add a new one in SYNC 3 are in my previous post. I just did it in my vehicle. If you can not change yours by following those instructions, then have the Service Department at your Lincoln Dealership check your system for problems. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  15. Hi JoAnn. Perhaps more information would help. What model and model year is your vehicle? Is it equipped with SYNC 3? If yes: Go to the Navigation screen. Choose "Favorites". Then choose "Home". Then choose "Edit". Then choose "Delete". Your old "Home" address will be deleted. Then add your new "Home" address as you did the first time. Good luck.
