+ icons don't expand for me in Chrome or IExplorer. Also don't get any info under the car like you used to a year or so back. On inspecting the source of the webpage, there is no code to expand/collapse anything. @Stoney871, what browser are you using and have you tried it recently ?

Have you registered as an Independent Operator?
Unless you create an IO account (totally free) you won't get any extra info.
Works on Firefox (desktop and mobile) just fine.

The info for my recall is in the web page source. I can read it in there but can't expand the recall item on the page.

You didn't have to register to see info about the build or notices before! Why/When did that change?

I found the v3.0 SYNC3 update on a US website.

Does anyone know if this will work on a UK SYNC3 ?

My concern is if I apply it, will it blow away the UK maps and install US maps into it or does it leave the maps alone and only do the main operating system.?

We're in the unusual position that we took out the SYNC2 that came with our 2016 SMAX and installed a brand new SYNC3 (bought from a UK ford dealer) system. The car is still under warranty but they will not cover the new SYNC3 system.

The reason why we've ripped out the SYNC2 is because it has manufacturing defects on it that ford refuse to do anything about and after a year of arguing with them we're done. All the dealers said it wasn't possible to do it. Ford US said it was and lots of forums and video makers demonstrate it is. We can confirm it was pretty straight forward.

We've got V2.2 of the SYNC3 software at the moment and its way ahead better than the SYNC2, the maps have the new bit of the A27 (New bit HA! the bit that was finished in 2015) on and it even knows the address of the local dealer which the SYNC2 didn't have. Very pleased so far.

Skipzoid.

 

If you haven't already, don't install it , it will work as I have done it myself but you will lose access to Spotify and also everything will be in American and as such she wont do anything you say lol just like most women

it will work and as far as I can see there is no change to updating it to 3.0

Thanks for this James, but to me this method this is just asking for trouble.

Sync 3 "Can" (according to FORD) connect to the internet for automatic downloads, so all I should have to do is follow the screen instructions and let nature take its course.

In practise it doesn't, well at least mine doesn't

If it was a download then an extraction to a USB stick then Plug and Play without adding/altering files I would be happy.

It makes me think that there are many versions of Sync 3 software for individual Ford models that have differing features.

At this stage I am not prepared to take a chance on a car costing £40,000.00 plus

Hi Mate,

Ford are only releasing updates via wifi in the US not the UK.

Do you have any idea when this will become official?

Also it is a trusted map and will work without problems?

Tbh I don't think it will ever become official without paying for it? 

I was speaking to someone who just bought there RS yesterday and they was running F6.1 

I have installed it and it appears to be working okay. Not been able to fully test it as I currently have a broken ankle (finding things to do! Lol) 

I'll keep you updated on how it gets on.
