I have read the majority of this thread (eyes are crossed now). :inspect:
I have been having my 2016 GT Premium since January of 2016 - its NON-NAV which is still on Version 1.0 because EVERY SINGLE TIME in the past 2+ years, I go the Ford Owners website to download the update, I get a message stating that my update could not be downloaded at this time. VERY FRUSTRATING! I am an IT Professional and this got me feeling like I am Stupid! I have tried every browser that I can think of, 4 different desktops, 3 different laptops, 2 tablets, Windows 7, Windows 10, my corporate network, my home network, McDonald's WiFi, the hotspot on my iPhone and still NOTHING.

From what i have read in this thread, since I am still on v1.0, I need to upgrade to v2.2. then v2.3 (maybe?), then v3.0 build 18025 and finally v3.0 build 18093 (I have to have WAZE:handsinair:). Is this correct?

I have found v2.3 non-nav file from: https://www.4dtech.com/software-updates/ (I will pull the hub to make sure I grab the correct file).

I already downloaded v3.0 build 10825 which is JR3T-14G381-AL and v3.0 build 18093 which is JR3T-14G381-AM.

I plan to follow the instructions listed by EcoBoomer:
I was updating from 18025 to 18093 and continued to get the same error message regardless of what I tried (disconnect battery cable to dump anything resident in memory, turning off blutooth etc). I read on other Ford sites and the problem has to do with the limited memory available in the non-nav apim. (As is often stated - it has nothing to do with your flash drive). Some had success rearranging the order of the file installations but I found that their order solution was the same order as the present download for the Mustang. It didn't work for me. Some did re-installs back to earlier versions (your 2.2 for example) but you are there and it isn't working for you. It's been determined that the install gets hung up on the 451.3MB and/or 772.1MB files; there isn't enough memory to unpack them both. Their workaround was to delete some of the files, do the install, then delete the other files, while restoring the first deleted files, and do the install again. None of the directions I found were done on 18093, this most recent one, and there are a different number of files with different names across the models, so really nothing to go by.

SO.... Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Here's what I did, I started with removing only one file at a time and it seems to have worked flawlessly.

1. Unpack the JR3T-14G381-AM.zip to your desktop and copy the contents of the JR3T-14G381-AM folder to your flash drive. Work only from your flash drive from this point on.
2. Delete the JR3T-14G423-BA.tar.gz file (772.1mb) from the SyncMyRide folder on your flash drive.
3. Open the autoinstall.lst with a text editor (TextEdit on a Mac or Notepad in Windows) on your flash and delete lines - Item3 and Open3.
4. Remove the spaces where Item3 andOpen3 resided and rename Item4 and Open4 to Item3 andOpen3. EVERYTHING ELSE SHOULD STAY AS IT IS.
5. Save the file with the same name - autoinstall.lst.

6. Take the flash to your car and do the install. It should update successfully and basically tell you that you are finished. But you are not. (I checked the Sync screen and it still showed 18025).
7. Take your flash back to your computer and do the same thing except you will copy the "BA" file from the SyncMyRide folder on your desktop to the same folder on the flash drive.
8. Now, delete the "AM" file - JR3T-14G381-AM.tar.gz (451.3mb) on your flash drive.
9. For simplicity sake, I copied the original autoinstall.lst from the desktop and overwrote the modified one on the flash drive and did steps 3,4, and 5 again, this time deleting Item2 and Open2 lines, removing spaces, and renaming Item3 and Open3 to 2, and Item/Open 4 to 3
10. Repeat step 6 and it SHOULD work for you (caveat emptor). I checked the Sync screen and it shows version 18093. I tested all the functions and everything seems to work fine. It even seems to be quicker - but that could be me wanting it to be so!

Godspeed!
Am I missing anything here? Or do I need to make any changes to my plan of attack before I tackle this beast?

Thanks in advance!

You should just be able to go from v1.0 to the most recent.

Thanks! I guess I will try to tackle it tonight. Fingers crossed that I don't screw it up completely :fingerscrossed:

@TexasRebel - yesterday i ordered the new hub for the CarPlay....do you think i should wait to do the upgrade after I swap the hub out?

No reason to. Plenty of people that don't use Apple Carplay never swapped the hub out.

Once you do, it will recognize a new USB device and might act funny the first time, but that'll only happen once (maybe again if you ever have to unplug the port to remove the center).

I haven't taken delivery of my 2018 Ecoboost Premium yet (I live in Japan!) and my 2015 has MFT...
I haven't used Sync 3 or carplay yet, but I'm excited... Well, I was until a started looking at this confusing thread.

Just basics:

I need to download an update to USB to get carplay? The updates are not via Wifi or anything like that?

Do I need to buy a new hub or any parts? I saw something about HU5Z-19A387-A... I assume I already have the neccesary hardware with a 2018 MY, right?

Any advice for a new user?

Thanks!

Hey you!

The USB hub and manual update to get CarPlay was only required for 2016 models - you'll be fine. Both the software and hardware were present in 2017-onwards.

Try erasing all wifi settings and then reconnecting.
I've tried that. It works for a week or two and then the annoying prompt comes back. I guess I just have to wait for the next build.

Official build from Ford.com or unofficial build from teh webz?
Sorry I meant to ask with the current 18093 build, what should the current Nav version be?

However, if there is a more updated web un official version, what would it be and how would I go about acquiring it?

How long do I have to wait after plugging in the flash drive before I see any kind of activity on the screen?

The first time I tried I had the directory structure on the flash drive wrong and it instantly threw an error, LS005, I think. I recall that means the list of files to be installed can't be found, which makes sense seeing as how the directory structure was incorrect.

I tried again with the folder structure set correctly and nothing happened. I tried again with a different flash drive, nothing happened.

I sat in the car for probably a good 20 minutes and nothing happened. Should I get some sort of feedback from the display that it's doing something? I even tried a factory reset and plugged in the flash drive again, same deal.

It helps if you have a USB drive that has a built-in activity light, as you could then be seeing it flashing away to show its busy working. If all is going to plan, then it will be busy copying the install files off of your USB and into the system - and when the copying is fully complete - then you get to see a message that says "system update in progress...".

If you have an older slower USB drive, then the copying can take a long time... and there is nothing to indicate anything is happening - unless you have an activity light flashing at you.

It would be nice if it gave you an initial message of "copying files from your USB" and when done another message that says "system update in progress" - but no such luck! :)
