I have the new Ford My Touch Sync 3 in my 2017 Ford Fusion SE Hybrid.  I keep the display on the night setting 24/7/365 and it works fine.  My wife's 2016 Fusion SE Hybrid has the Ford My Touch Sync 2, and it works ok, just a little slow sometimes.

Hi there.

Sync 3 works well. I have ver 2.2. and I had some problems when I first connected to android auto and apple car play because of the pendrive. When you connect for the first time make sure you don't have a pendrive plugged in and it will connect in about 1-2 seconds.

On my Focus i don't have climate on the screen and I don't know yet how to use the car's satnav when android/apple play is working. Keeps using the phones maps, I have to look into that. 

The menus are simple, but I wished I had more settings to play with.

Does Sync 3 have the really annoying issue in Sync 2 where it decides to re-index any music SD or USB card/stick almost every time you stop and start the car? That's been reported a lot and seems to have been a problem with Sync 2 for years.

Also, is it possible to get a 2016 MK5 Mondeo upgraded to Sync 3? Would a dealer be able to do that? 

Thanks,  Martin

I seem to recall reading that the Sync 3 requires different hardware inside the actual unit itself, so I think you'd need to replace that.   But yeah, think its a dealer job.   

I think a lot of car audio units mess around with SD/USB sticks, not just Ford.  My wife's Leon does that and its really annoying.

New to my Mondeo having spent too much time in BMWs and Mercedes and the like. Love the way it goes but... by heck, the SYNC 2 thing is just awful. Its responsiveness both in terms of the user interface and navigation is not that dissimilar to feature phones from the 1990s.

Luckily the rest of the car more than makes up for it!

Good to read that, my car is due on the 10th Feb, really looking forward to it.  :-)

Im 99% sure it will have Sync 3, I hope!

Most of the 2017 Fords will have Sync 3 except Fiesta, which will get it with the mk8 model, B Max , Ranger and the van type cars (Tourneo connect, Courier).

 On the Focus with Sync 3 they don't have anymore SD card slot. That was used for the navigation system to load the maps.  Now Sync 3 has a built in hard drive of some sort.

About the indexing problem I didn't noticed that, although we don't use the pendrive as much now. We tend to use more Apple/Android car play feature.
