    SYNC 3 - MAP UPDATE F7

    I used a Verbatim USB stick. It was the only one that worked for me. Having said that, I have not updated the maps yet, but my Sync version is 3.0 build:18025

    Ford Mondeo 65 Plate Tyre Pressure Monitor

    Hi Dee Yes it really sucked, had to get both of them replaced... I do a lot of miles for work and didn't want to be stranded one day.

    Software update for Sync 3 Focus Titanium X

    I haven't tried CarPlay yet, might do that on the way home.

    One thing I have noticed on Sync 3 version 3 with Waze and google maps is that the turn directions do not show up on the mini display between the speedo and rev counter. It only shows the compass. When using the native Sat Nav the directions show up, was kinda hoping that Waze/Google Maps would do the same.

    Have you noticed roads around you that weren't on it, look to be on it now? @gillyallan did you update the maps to F7?

    @avi did you use the update from the other thread to update the Sync 3 to F7?

    SYNC 3 - MAP UPDATE F7

    Oh no.... get well soon!! Ok cool, I will give it a whirl when I copy it over to the USB... Plan on using Android Auto/Carplay as primary but would like the Sync Maps updated also in case I have to fall back on them.

    Fully updated. Waze works on Sync 3, using Android Auto. Thank you Gillyalan for the assist on this... much appreciated!

    Software update for Sync 3 Focus Titanium X

    Yes thank you. Ford instructions say you can do ignition cycle, but I think turning it off for a few mins after will do the job. It's still updating as I type this. Using timestamps in this forum for reference.

    Software update for Sync 3 Focus Titanium X

    Update!!!! I used a 16GB Verbatim USB that I found in a drawer and it now says "Updating system software". I downloaded the Sync 3 update on to my Win 10 laptop, and using the native Windows 10 file extraction I extracted it to the 16GB USB directly. It only has the 3 files on the USB, no parent folder, formatted to exFAT. I then turned on my car, (disabled auto start/stop) and when the car was on, I waited a few mins until everything on the Sync 3 connected and maps were loaded. I then plugged in the USB into the USB port. I waited about 5 mins and then "Updating system software" showed up on the top of the Sync 3 unit. Still doing update so will add to this as it progresses.
