Updated the maps - downloaded from the FORD website - for my Sync 3 last week. Everything went well and as per the downloaded instructions, until the last stage where it failed to download the confirmation log from the car and the screen said that it had failed to update. So I gave up...
However, used the car on Saturday and it advised “caution” at the new cameras between J29 and J28 on the M1. As these were only recently installed - and were not on the previous software/maps - I can only assume that the update was successful... Strange!

I agree - ever since I carried out the full system update at Christmas, my ipod doesn’t connect/function correctly. I shan’t bother with any more! Although I’m quite pleased that the latest M1 cameras near me are now on there...

There is no confirmation xml file for the maps - only the sync updates themselves. Website is incorrect in asking for it. If you connect sync via wifi from the car and check for updates some people have reported that updates the Ford website.

If you have any problems post update ( I haven't on any cars I have done) then do a master reset. Some people have reported voice guidance doesn't work until after a master reset.

iPods are flaky full stop with sync 3 - but then they are getting a bit old tech now. I gave up and used a USB stick which is far better - don't get any of the re-indexing problems or stuttering between tracks. They are so cheap and small now I leave it in the car all the time.

Hinch - well worth doing the Sync updates even if not the maps as there are a lot of bug fixes and some new features. Applink is much better on newer versions and works well.

I did mine before Xmas. But the file never downloaded to the USB stick at the end, no error messages though.

Any chance you can post a software & Maps version number please?

Thanks

No worries, just checked, there's a 25GB update waiting. That's a project for the weekend.

Maps are F8, I had the failed update to but checked the version and it had indeed updated.

Don’t think the sync version changed it was still 18025

Maps update comes in two parts with an ignition cycle in the middle so make sure it is a long enough journey to do the update (40 minutes plus 1 hour give or take)

HI What website do you visit for the map updates ?
I have googled but can't find the right page.

thanks
