  • Ford SYNC 3 updates

Ford is making Android Auto and Apple CarPlay software support available to model-year 2016 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3.

Customers with model-year 2016 Ford vehicles can update to the new SYNC 3 version 2.2 by downloading to a USB drive, visiting a dealership or automatically through a Wi-Fi connection.

Customers can update their software by visiting owner.ford.com to download and install with a USB drive, or by visiting a dealership.

Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles and a Wi-Fi network can set up their vehicle to receive the update automatically.

Though Ford has been issuing SYNC upgrades since 2009, this is the first time the company is offering an update via Wi-Fi.

In Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles with Automatic System Updates turned on within SYNC 3, the system will periodically connect to a customer’s designated Wi-Fi network to check for updates.

If an update is available, the system automatically downloads the update in the background over a period of time without any customer interaction.

SYNC 3 is designed to perform the update as long as Wi-Fi is connected prior to the vehicle turning off; therefore there is no need to keep the vehicle running for the update to take place.
