I've really been waiting for this issue with my AccessPort to be resolved before I do anything related to anything electronic in the car.
I tried with Mac osx and the files come out completely different than on Windows. Formatted with exfat and copied from Windows and all is well. Noticed the USB light immediately blinking indicating files being copied. After a few minutes, the dash displays Updating System Software. Sitting in my car now waiting for it to finish..
Hey everyone. Just became a ford owner.
Upgraded from version 1 to 3 with JR3T-14G381-AL on my 2016 Ford Flex with Sync 3 (I know it is an RS forum, but its the only thread I found with proper nerdy people).
Problem is - apple carplay doesn not work. The phone doesn't ask for a permission as it should and nothing happens. The mobile apps work, though. I can see Waze app on the screen and can work with it.
My clues are:
1) Bad update? It went kinda weird. I am not sure it went right, even though everything is functional and SYNC shows the latest version and build in settings.
Before updating I started the engine, put in USB, update started, I went out of the car (left it running) with a remote, locked it with the remote and when I came back to the car the engine was not running and the display was showing an "update complete" message. I took the usb out and checked SYNC - it was all ok. Didn't seem to restart or anything.
2) Old usb hub? I know it can be an issues for older cars, but mine looks like the ones that are treated as latest.
Any ideas? Any ways to re-install the firmware or downgrade and upgrade again?
When I plug a usb with latest firmware it says "updating software", finished in less than 5 minutes, asks to remove USB (no reboots or anything ad seems too fast).
Same thing when I feed an older firmware.

i recently bought and now have updated from sync v1.0 to v3.0 but didn't get android auto with the update.
should that have come with the update or was that with the 2.0/2.2 update?
ford tells me to see dealer and dealer wants me to bring it in early in the morning. i'd rather not.
