If you have a 2019 Fiesta as per your profile, that's doesn't look like the version number.

Post a pic of the software/system info screen.

Ok that is odd, yours must be a very new build? Perhaps beyond 3.4, MY19....?

I haven't seen that type of version before, usually the 2019 cars are version 3.4 something.

Do you know when your car was built?

Or you might find a clue under the bonnet:  mine (registered March 2018)  had a sticker on the engine saying "Cologne engine plant Feb 2018" .

So the sticker says "Cologne engine plant 02 May 2019"

Ford must have changed hardware again then. Only thing you can do is keep an eye on:

https://www.ford.co.uk/owner/resources-and-support/sync-bluetooth/update

That will give you official updates, I also keep an eye on a russian forum for early updates, but it's different for each h/w version.

I would say your software "version" though, is the 19113 part, going by how Ford usually number their updates.

Sounds fine, it's been a while since I signed up and they keep changing things.

The main thing is just to be like a solo mechanic. Because in some ways we all are a little, even with a bit of tinkering or looking after our cars. 😉

My Sync 3 about screen looks different to the one posted above. My engine date is 03JUN19 and my Sync software version is 3.3 build 19052. The ford website says I have the latest versions.

Could there be a difference in cars for the UK and ROI markets, I wonder?

Very strange. Its not sync 2 i know that looks completely different to sync 3 so maybe its sync 2.5. But ford helpline chat said the because i can connect via android auto that sync 3 is only compatible with Android auto

Your screen as others are saying doesn't seem to look right at all. Have you put your VIN into to Ford update site yet as was suggested earlier to see what it says ?

So this is what ford said today. " I cant find any information that says the vehicle has sync on my own system which is unusual, given the fact the you can access android auto I would be incline to think that the vehicle is fitted with SYNC 3 as this feature is not available on SYNC 2.5 " on one off the emails even ford said that its odd.
