    Official Ford Sync3 3.4 Release

    I still can't download from the server; goddammit Ford! Ford is obviously struggling with the whole 'computer thing.' OT, but this don't look good (dunno if this deserves its own thread): http://www.autoextremist.com/

    Official Ford Sync3 3.4 Release

    OT, but this reminds me of the old/early days of the PC 'revolution' when you wanted/needed to do a BIOS update. It was a white knuckle experience, because if you hosed your BIOS your PC could be completely bricked. Eventually, the motherboard manufacturers got smart and installed additional...

    Official Ford Sync3 3.4 Release

    They know; I got this today (JFC Ford): *** There is a known issue with the latest SYNC updates. Please do not download updates via Wi-Fi at this time ***

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    When I first downloaded the files, Ford sent me an email with a link to re-download them if necessary (I had to clear the download cache beforehand). I think the second time worked for me, as IVSU showed the newer files. BTW, my 'loss' of SXM presets was operator error; Sync set the default...

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Got a link (I looked through the index; must be buried)? TIA

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    My presets were definitely gone (all three sets, but I generally only listen to the first/top). Given that, apparently, no two owners have the same experience with the nav update it's understandable. If radio presets aren't set in Sync memory--volatile or non--where else would they be saved...

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Note the MR clears all the audio presets; if, like me, you had a lot of Sirius/XM stations saved you'll lose them

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Thanks (to both responders). I have a CD player.

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    I know it's (probably) been covered, but I don't want to go back through 33 pages: How do you get to the 'bezel diagnostics?' I couldn't find them in the usual 'settings' stuff.

    For any one with a supercharger did you upgrade the oil pump gears?

    This one?: https://www.americanmuscle.com/ford...tor-oil-pump-gear-set-1119-gt-1519-gt350.html Page says 'billet steel' (you can see machine marks in the photo). Are they lying, or did I get the wrong link?

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Do we have definitive info as to whether the update was actually done, but the about page doesn't correctly reflect it? I'd rather not go through the update process again, as I only have a short commute and hate to let the car run sitting in place. I don't travel far much these days, and don't...

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Yup (as a retired engineer/web developer I still tend to overthink things--KISS, dummy). It's possible the maps version# is embedded in the license file, and if that wasn't updated it might explain why the update appeared to work but the maps version# wasn't updated on the 'about' page.

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    I think the name/quantity of files would have to be the same, as the install mechanism in the car expects a certain set of files and a set file/directory structure. The only ways to know for sure would be to have admin access to the server and compare timestamps on every file, or to compare...

    New Navigation map update June 29th

    Same here ... still shows nav maps version 1.17.

    Fnck Ford!

    I used to do the updates on our Bonanza's Garmin GPS; every 3 months if you wanted to be current for IFR. IIRC, you had to use a 'special' smart card; off-the-shelf wouldn't do and, of course, it required a trip to the airport (no simple feat given the security requirements at San Jose...

    Fnck Ford!

    I will (download the license again, if I can get it). Even if it's 3rd party, Ford shouldn't allow this (makes them look bad, and I'm a fanboi).

    Fnck Ford!

    I did a hard format on the USB drive before I copied the files over. I'd like to get the latest maps; current is wrong in some places. I rented an Edge in Rhode Island, it kept wanting us to cross a river to get to the Navy base (no bridge). Google Maps got us there.

    Fnck Ford!

    I've got rev# 17 of the maps ... some have 18, 19, I believe is the latest. I got the update to start, then got ERR003 after about 20 minutes ... grrrrrrr (will try again later). At any rate there is a long thread going (noted earlier).
