    Curious to this as well. I have tried multiple different USB formats and the update just says Updating for over 90 minutes with no status. I finally just gave up

    The issue with non-NAV is the amount of memory in the APIM. If you aren't computer savvy and can't perform the dual stage install I would suggest the dealer. Ford updated the storage capacity to 64GB in one of the documents I have. I had to do the dual install with a 32GB Samsung and it works fine, just a pain in the ass.

    I've had a problem with the car not reading some memory sticks, regardless of the format. I bought some Sandisc thumb drives at WalMart and solved that problem. The "dual install" reference is to fix a MEM_ERR03 message that a lot of us get when trying to upgrade a non-nav system. It's really not a hard thing to do and the instructions are in this thread: https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100437&page=2
    (reply 24 has the best info......)

    The big thing I got from the update is I can now run Waze on my sync. It is really nice. If you want to give it another try, I am happy to try to help you.

    The update is worth it if you're phone-centric. Ford dealers should not charge you to update BTW. If they do tell Ford Customer Service.

    You don't need to take anything with you. Tell them you have an issue doing the update. If they attempt to charge you tell them you are going to call the customer service line

    It's not a joke, you can't blame others just because you can't figure something out that many others has no problems with. Like you said, you are not that good with computers, so it's most likely something related to how your flash drive is set up (GPT vs. MBR, multiple volumes, hidden volumes, etc.), how you copied files (MAC user), or maybe it's just the flash drive being bad or not compatible (my friend has a flash drive that won't be recognized by sync).
