Well, if you're like me - you love the Ford Sync 3 interface - while it's not perfect, it's pretty darned good! Carplay is a nice update but if you've updated to IOS 11 - you'll notice some weird things going on - but guess what!? If you don't want to wait for the WiFi update - you can install SYNC 3 Version 3.0 using a USB drive!
There are new features for CarPlay with
- New Nav Icon.
- Fixed keyboard
- added symbol $
- MUCH faster interface smoother, snappier
- Support for new apps
**disclaimer - do this at your own risk! not my fault if it goes belly up!**
Installation instructions: 1. Download. 2. Unzip. 3. Grab a USB Flash Drive, 4GB is fine. 4. Format the drive to either exFAT or FAT32. 5. Put the extracted files inside the flash drive. 6. Turn car on. 7. Plug in car and enjoy!!
***** Note that depending on your USB device it might take up to 10 minutes for the stereo to show "Updating System"... *****
The USB in the car is NOT USB 3 therefore read speed is limited, so if you don't see anything, DO NOT unplug - just wait....
There are two versions to update your particular SYNC 3 system
