New Sync 3 and Map updates available on Ford account website


Recommended Posts

Hi All,  I checked my account details this evening and there are new Sync3 and map updates available.  After the debacle of trying to update the previous sync system and map plates to F9, taking hours and costing half a tank of petrol, and culminating in  the loss of DAB logos,I wonder if anybody else has received them and updated successfully?

I went through Ford Customer services in the end last time and eventually got them to arrange for my dealer to contact Ford Technical and restore my DAB logos for me, free of charge.  I also got my next service free for my trouble.  I’m dreading this again.

 

I am aware of the cyanlabs updates some of you have done, but I have an extended warranty which I don’t want to jeopardise!

 

Many thanks in advance!

The update has appeared for me too. Downloading now. I expect it will be version 3.4.21020, I'll confirm when it's completed.

Download complete.

It's Sync 3.4.21020. There's an updated voice recognition package and an updated Gracenote package but yet again no DAB logo package included.

I don't know why this should be because the DAB logo file is included in the 21020 Edge update.

Nothing new, just bug fixes as far as I can tell.

Strange, mine is only 950 MB and slightly different.1265417469_Screenshot(315).thumb.png.e09b092c26e747213b942b2685d1e7d9.png

Yeah, definitely different packages depending on what was previously installed.

Yours includes Sync 3.4.21020 (5U5T-14G381-ER) and the latest DAB logo file (1U5T-14G658-AF) but no updated Gracenote or Voice Recognition packages.

I've installed this latest Sync update and I'm now on 3.4.21020. I'd also manually installed the F10 map update a little while back.

No major changes to report, Sync looks and feels much the same as 3.4.20351.

I uploaded the log file to Ford and the site says my software and maps are all up to date.

Hi Geoff,

Yes, these will be the same files as the ones you installed from Cyanlabs. They all come direct from Ford’s servers. Cyanlabs updater downloads them, generates a corresponding autoinstall file and creates the USB drive. Ford just packages them all together in a zip file.
I have tried 21098 and didn’t really notice any difference over 21020.

Cheers,

Col

Hi Andy,

Not necessarily. I already had the latest logo file installed so it wasn’t in my download.

@Tizer(John) did have the logo file in his download so it looks like Ford are including the latest logo file for those who need it.

Just downloaded the latest sync update from the Ford site and as you can see its the same as your list apart from missing the 5U5T-14G391-AN.tar.gz file.

Whats the purpose of that missing file ?

Do you need to download and install the whole maps file OR can you chose UK ONLY?

The maps download is so slow!! 
 

or is it just me? 

Not just you, it took over 3 hours for me, dreading put it in the car now. Living 10 miles from Bolton I'm not supposed to travel anywhere far enough for it to install, unless I go between M61 J6 and J7 in a loop all day 🤣

Hi Paul, the file missing from your download is the latest voice recognition file.
