    Hello from Ohio

    Hi RH and welcome to the Ford SYNC Forum! Congratulations on your new Corsair. Heeeyyy...wait a minute...you look familiar...๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck!
  2. Hi Dalvic.Yes, I have seen others mention various attempts, with various devices, and various success rates. I can't recall the device brands mentioned, but will post back if/when I find the threads/posts. Good luck.

    Sync 3 apps

    Hi Joe. Take a look here: https://www.ford.com/support/sync-and-technology/applink/ Also, I believe you can you can find compatible apps in your FordPass phone app (I can on the LincolnWay version), if you have it installed on your smartphone. I don't see YouTube. Good luck.
  4. Hi Snakeight. I can not explain why now. Could be due to an incompatibility between the latest Spotify version and SYNC. Or any of a multitude of other reasons. However, you can find the reset procedure for your particular vehicle in the SYNC section of your Owners Manual. You can probably find the correct page by looking in the Index under '"SYNC', then "Reset" (or similar terms). If you don't have your hard copy, you can download the PDF version here: https://www.fleet.ford.com/parts-service/resources/owner-manuals/ Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    SYNC 1 - Nothing...

    Hi Snyper. Could be a bad/failed APIM. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Ford+SYNC+1+APIM Good luck.
  6. Hi Snakeight. What version of SYNC (find it in the General/Settings tabs on your SYNC screen)? If this is only occurring with Spotify, then it would seem to be an issue with overall Spotify compatibility itself, as opposed to SYNC. Assuming your phone and Spotify app are fully updated, you could try a SYNC System Master Reset. However, I'm not sure it will help, and then you will need to re-pair phones, input favorite stations again, etc. etc. Hopefully another member who has seen this issue will jump in with a better solution. Keep us updated ad good luck.

    USB Drive Song Metadata

    Hi RH. Perhaps there is a reason I am not aware of, but why don't you just copy the music files from the SSD directly over to the USB stick/drive? Set and forget, instead of ripping each CD individually. Good luck.

    Latest Sync 3 Map Update Issues

    Hi Evan. When you start your vehicle and insert the USB drive, exactly what happens? How long did you leave the USB plugged in before removing it? Let us know and good luck.

    2021 SYNC 3 NAV map update.

    HI Muzicman. Ford/Lincoln release updated NAV map versions annually. The NAV map updates are usually released/offered around mid-July/early August of each year. The update was a little late this year, likely due to the pandemic. For everyone's information: The 5 year subscription cost is $199 for the 5 digital download version and $239 for the 5 year, mailed USB version. The single year update via digital download is $109 and the single year, mailed USB update is $149. So if a Lincoln/Ford owner forecasts they will update 2 or more times in 5 years, it is less expensive to order the 5 year subscription. If you think you will only update once in 5 years, order the single year update. And my opinion: For those not entirely comfortable with computers, downloading/transferring files etc., pay the extra $40 and order the USB version. Especially if ordering the 5 year subscription. At the very least, you get troubleshooting/tech support (which you do not get with the straight digital download), you will not have to worry about downloading/transferring files etc., plus you will wind up with 5 extra USB flash drives for your own personal use in the end. If comfortable with your computer skills, get the download, but realize they offer no troubleshooting support for the digital downloads, if there is a problem. Here is the SYNC 3 NAV map update website: https://syncnavigation.com/lincoln/home Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  11. Hi Graham. Assuming all necessary settings are enabled in your Drivers Information Center, your best course of action is to set up a service appointment so the issue can be properly diagnosed and corrected. There are no other owner configurable or adjustable settings. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Temperature control broken?

    Hi dd. This is the SYNC 3 section, and your Taurus has SYNC 1, SYNC 2 or MyFordTouch. While this thread may be seen by those familiar with SYNC1/SYNC 2/MyFordTouch, it may be better if you post it lower down in the appropriate SYNC 1/SYNC 2/MyFordTouch sub-forum. Good luck.
  13. Hi alcohenusa. I thought I was on the Ford Fusion Forum when I answered this question. One of the drawbacks of being involved in so many forums and brain clouds. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That was why I stated SYNC 3 was not available on the Fusion until the 2017 model year. And I was specifically referring only to the Fusion. This is also a good example of why it always helps when a member posts their vehicle model/model year when asking questions. But you are correct that SYNC 3 was available in the 2016 model year on some Ford/Lincoln models. Thanks for catching that and good luck.
  14. Hi nrupert. Multitask hit the nail on the head. The 2016 Fusion was not equipped with SYNC 3 from the factory. The 2016 models were equipped with either SYNC w/MyFord (base models), or SYNC w/MyFord Touch (higher end models). SYNC 3 was not available in the Fusion until the 2017 model year. So if your Fusion has SYNC 3 now, it means a previous owner installed it. Therefore, it is not eligible to download updates from the SYNC 3 update website. You will need someone to supply files to you (as you are trying for), or find another aftermarket solution. Good luck.
