Sat nav update

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried updating their satnav themselves? Is this possible?

Sync2 just requires purchasing an SD card from somewhere like eBay or Ford themselves depending how much you want to pay. I think the latest is an F9 card but I might stand corrected on that one. The Sync 3 is something I think you can do yourself but I don't have Sync 3 so pragmatix link will probably help you more.

Sync 3 Update

Download the upgrade to F9 maps to a USB stick (you will need a 32Gb USB stick)

The link for the download is in the other long thread on this

When download is complete get in the car, switch on engine, and stick the USB in the USB slot

The dash screen should say something like "update starting"

Probably best to go for a long long drive while the download is happening, as it take 45mins -1 hour for stage 1 to happen

If all goes well after stage 1, you will get a message on the dash screen saying stop the car, switch off, get out, lock the car and wait 2 mins (leave the USB stick plugged in, do not remove)

Then get back in start up and go for another drive (maybe 20-30mins)

If everything has gone well you should get a message saying "update successful" and you should see F9 Maps in the settings screen

If not successful (which is probable) refer to the other post on this subject which gives other thoughts and guidance.

Or, just try the above process again (including a new download) and it may work this time

I did mine and it took 2 attempts, but eventually we got there

Good luck!!
