Replace SYNC 2 on 2015 Focus Titanium X with aftermarket touchscreen system

Recommended Posts


Good evening all,

New to the forum and I have recently purchased the above and it came with much hated SYNC 2. I would like to update to SYNC 3, but would it be easier to install an aftermarket touchscreen system?


I have the rear parking camera & sensors/active park/climate control/Nav etc, would this be able to be connected to an aftermarket system?


I have NO car maintenance experience! However, I would like to do more with my car. I spend nearly 10 hours a week in it driving backwards and forwards to Portsmouth from Hull..


Thank you for looking.

Upgrading from Sync 2 to 3 seems easiest. The screen and the electronic module (APIM) are changed and there’s a new USB socket if you want to use apple play. Some reconfiguration in Forscan May be required. 

This forum has some discussion on it, but there’s likely to be more on Focus forums elsewhere.
