Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Hi,

just wondering if anyone can help, I have a 2014 Ford Focus mk2 and I need to update the SYNC and maps.  I have gone to the SYNC and maps software page on Ford site and entered VIN number and it tells me that a software update is available at around 770mb.  If I download and install this, will it automatically update my sat navs maps or will I also need to buy the latest maps SD card.

The SD card I currently have is ‘Western Europe’ SD sat nav (v4.1). If I do need a new one, where is the best place to buy one and which one

thanks

If you want to update your sync system to 3.4 you need a usb stick with at least 32GB on it I could walk you through what to do but I think your best bet is watching a walkthrough video on YouTube on how to install it on your laptop or desktop computer and then once you have done that just take the usb to your car plug it into your USB port in your car and that’s all you have to do it takes about 30mins but depends on what sync 3 system you have in your car my Ford kuga had sync 3.3 so to install sync 3.4 took about 15mins hope this helps you

IIRC, and you have an SD Card, you have SYNC 1/2, not SYNC 3.

To download using a USB stick, you need SYNC 3, which involves changing the unit.

Your choices are, either get the latest SD Card, or spend around £450/£500 to update to a SYNC 3 unit. Plenty of posts on how to do this upgrade, I have done it myself.
