  1. I know this was about Android, but if you have an iPhone, you can use the Siri shortcuts hack that essentially eliminates the need to use the app. It’s faster and much more reliable as long as Ford’s servers are functional. Check it out here: https://www.reddit.com/r/shortcuts/comments/hmgxn5/fordpass_shortcuts/
  2. Oil life and odometer are still there, at least in ios (app version 3.19.1). Though the entire vehicle page has gotten very erratic in the last few updates.
  3. Conflicting info. That never happens......
  4. Do you have a link to the February 2021 Ford post? According to the listing of Ford pass, it requires 5.0 and up.

    Updating to 4.6

    Are you sure you have the USB properly set up? I would check the setup and try again. One thing to note if you have an iPhone. Updating to 4.6 will break the ability to use Siri. I don’t know if Android phones have a similar problem with their digital assistant. I had to roll back 2 vehicles to 4.4 to get back the old functionality.

    New SYNC 3.4 update available

    I still get monthly VHRs for my 2018 Fusion as well as my 2020 Ranger. Though, I don’t find them very useful.

    Sync 3......confused, help please

    Ford does not provide an official upgrade from Sync 3.0 to 3.3, 3.4, etc. So, the upgrade to 20204 is the correct one for Sync 3.0. When you did the last update, did you get it from the Ford site? There are some third parties that will provide a way to update from 3.0 to 3.4, but Ford will not support it.

    New SYNC 3.4 update available

    Hi NCEcoBoost, I don’t know what vehicle you have, but if it is Sync 3.0, then there is no official update available to take you to 3.3 or 3.4. For my 2018 Fusion with nav, the latest update is v3.0.20204. As far as the Fordpass app, the latest for iOS is 3.17.1 which was released this week. Not sure about the Android version.
  9. Do you have a Windows PC you can use to format the USB drive and unzip the file? I think that would be the next thing to try. MACs can be problematic. Good luck.

    Sync 3.4 Font

    The look in 3.4 is definitely different than previous versions. I have 3.4 in my Ranger and 3.0 in my Fusion. I also prefer the older look (of 3.0 thru 3.3). Some users have set up their 3.4 to be in night mode all the time using the Blue background. Others have ventured into Forscan and changed their system to use the Lincoln color schemes which are different. I am not a Forscan user so I cannot help with that.
  11. Hi pwillikers. You’re welcome. Glad to hear everything is working!
  12. A couple of things on updating maps.... First, you should have received a confirmation email when you first downloaded the map update. That email contains a link that allows you to redownload the update at no cost. Second, if the voice commands for navigation don’t work after the update, then you most likely removed the USB too early. There are multiple ‘update complete’ messages that appear when doing the map update. You need to leave the USB connected until you get the one that says it is complete and the system no longer reboots on its own. This issue has happened to many users. My successful map update took just about an hour, but I have seen others says it took a bit over an hour for them. Rerun the map update until it fully completes and you should be good.

    Updated Sync last night to 3.0??

    bbf2530 and Multitask. I respectfully request that the two of you take this (and any future) pissing matches offline. I read these forums to learn and try to help others when I can. Enough is enough of this waste of everyone’s time.
  14. See my reply in the other thread where you posted the same issue. https://fordsyncforum.com/index.php?/topic/7350-map-update-error/

    Map Update Error

    Hello Ldf150king, The problem with losing the voice commands may have been caused by removing the USB too soon. The are a couple of bogus ‘complete’ messages that popup momentarily and the system reboots. Do not remove the USB until you get the real complete message that stays on the screen until you clear it. Try rerunning the update. Mine took about an hour to run the whole thing.
