It was so much easier to do things before the cars got smarter than us. :frown:
Or maybe they are just more devious?
This is correct. Also I couldn;t download it to my phone, so make sure you are doing it to a laptop or desktop (PC or MAC) I had to go back to get the instructions luckily I followed the email to get them, so as long as you have the email order receipt you can go back.

Will it work on other vehicles or do you need a new license code?
Need the license key, that is one of the download files. But I am curious if that file is a one time only file or the license file for future installs that could work. I have to look into that.

Would have to go back through the original maps 1.19 thread but I recall that it is one license file per download. Actually there was an issue with the first download of 1.19 because of a bad license file and Ford had to fix it.

I never updated my electronics pack R. I wonder if the one time courtesy upgrade would be allowed. Its a '17. It has a 8 yr extended bumper to bumper warranty if that matters.

Edited to add:

Honestly I don't think I have ever used the car navigation. I always use my phone because it is the most up to date and has traffic, etc. But it would be nice.

The free upgrade started with Sync 3.2 in mid 2018. You would still new to pay for your 17’ with 3.0. Unless, of course, you decided to use Cyanlabs which would allow you to get 3.4 and maps 1.19 For free.

Ira: My apologies for what appears to be a rookie misspeak. However, I received no mail from Ford after the downloads and I know they know my address. That's what made me think they were being crappy about it. Nonetheless, with no email from them, I'll be outta luck for the SD if the files I grabbed don't work.

Check junk mail, they clearly ask for an email address before your order goes through.

Thanks, AOD but I'm old school with maybe two dozen different mail accounts at any one time so I'm familiar with junk and spamanooch. <grin> Thanks to Spam Assassin running on the hosting company's servers along with my own filters, I get pretty much zero of either.

I just got done with the update. It took about 35 minutes and worked with just the battery charger hooked up. No problems.

Make sure you add the license file to the SYNCMyRide folder, the update won't work without it.

Back in 2018 Ford updated SYNC 3 version 3.0 to version 3.2. Because of a change in the APIM users of 3.0 could not update. 3.2 became 3.3 and then finally 3.4. Ford just sat on their hands before releasing 3.4 officially a few months ago. In the meantime a company names Cyanlabs offered users of 3.0 a way to update to 3.4. Now the file were actual Ford files but some changes needed to be made to allow 3.4 to be used with the older APIM. Anyway many members did the backdoor update, the great majority with absolutely no issues. Personally I waited because of my warranty.

Anyway check out their website. Everything is clear and easy to use. I understand that their support is pretty decent as well.

By the way, I've read about the issues with your car and I am heartbroken for you. I've been lucky both with my 15' and 19' I cannot imagine dealing with the issues you have found. I wish you the best in getting everything resolved.
