S Max Mk2 Sync 2 removal Help Please.


Recommended Posts

Hi All I hope your all well.

Iv just got a 2016 Mk2 S Max with the Sync 2 system in it. I am going to be using the Sat Nav allot and on the hole I am not pleased with it as Iv had a newer car with Sync 3.

I have a few questions about changing the system and under stand most of it just a few little things I want to be clear on as I can not find the info I want.

So the biggest question is dose any one have the info on removing the sync 2 from My car I.E pulling the dash apart to get it out? 

Dose the Sync 3 screen and APIM have to come from a S max or and can it come from any Ford with a sync 3 system in it.

Do I need the Vin number to keep it up to date.

Best asked in the Facebook SMax Owners group, better still the Mondeo group. Many Mondeo Owners done this upgrade. There is a good Mustang upgrade video on YT to give you an idea of how to do it and the bits needed but not seen any SMax specific. From what I understand you need the Sync 3 hardware (Unit and USB for carplay etc - Sync 2 had SD card Sync has internal storage) and the brackets for the car you're mounting it to. You will need the donor VIN for Ford updates for Sync 3 ver 3.0 (most upgrades on the Mondeo Facebook group are getting side loading version 3.4 and bypassing Ford all together, a further upgrade to firmware gives radio logos and video).

I am happy with mine (Sync 3 v 3.0) as is because I mainly use Apple CarPlay and the Nav maps, which are free downloads, are the latest, F9.

I thought about doing the same to my car, then I found out the price of a sync 3 screen, £600 approx. That was for a second hand unit  and you also had to buy a new usb connector as the 2 and 3’s are different.
