Android Apps with Sync 2, any chance ?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm a bit annoyed by Ford. Got a 2016 Ford Edge EU Specs and was delivered with Sync 2. I expected Sync 2 to be updated to allow the use of Android App but nope. Sync 3 was installed on 2017 Ford Edge in EU.

 

Seems that Ford was not very fair with their European and Aussies customers by delivering cars with outdated Sync 2 until 2017 while US cars got Sync 3 since 2015.

(maybe they had a stock of Sync 2 they wanted to get rid off).

 

So can we expect one day an update that would allow the use of Android Auto on Sync 2 or should I get that off mine mind ? (FYI Mazda just release on update of their MZD connect to allow Android Auto and carplay).

 

If not what are the other solutions available ? Does a hack exists ? Have ever tried Easyconnect ?

Or Go for a class action against Ford cie for unfair commercial practise in EU and AU? :lol2:

 

Thanks

 

Won't go for an upgrade kit, too expensive and not available in EU anyway.

Sync 3 didn't come till 2017 for most Fords, very few 2016s did...

 

I did the Sync 2 to Sync 3 conversion by getting parts from wrecking yards, installing them and programming it to my car.

no, why would you need to do that? , you would only need to change it IF you swapped out the hardware for Sync 3.

I bought the screen, APIM, ACM and a new HUB... with the programing and labor to put it all in, I think I spent about $500, maybe a tad more... better than the 2100 I've seen.

 

The how can be found on another site, http://www.2gfusions.net/. with a lot of other mods that others have done.
