Two things. I first tried to update and Sync wouldn't see the drive even with the correct ExFAT and folder structure. The drive was partitioned as GPT. I redid the drive as MBR partition, and moved the files back, and it picked up the drive when I plugged it in. So though I don't see anything in the instructions, maybe the system doesn't support GPT partitioned drives.


And trying to search through this new forum is a pain. Advanced search queries just aren't there to use.

Does anyone know what the most recent NA Map version is? I have NA 1 15 on my 17, and it was missing several 'new' roads that were built before 2015.

According to the official Ford map site nothing until next year, and honestly, not sure I want to pay $150 for an update that's probably going to be at least 2 years out of date, from he day they release it.

All the info for how to update past Sync 3.0 was deleted from this forum. The entire thread "official sync 3 map update site " was deleted. Looks like someone at Ford got triggered and complained.

i wonder why they will do that. the owners web page is sooo trashy with all the refresh bugs at log in. i had to use windows edge to get access to download the update. and when update is completed it won't even let me upload the report file. the owners website is honestly such an embarrassment for Ford, total junk.

The new 20045 update came out, just did the update and found that the sync system start up is extremely slow on inital startup. I downgraded back to 19205 and it went back to normal.

Anyone running the new 3.4 ? how is the initial start up on that.

Just confirming that the original source of the 20045 update found the same issues. People are saying the same thing from other countries. I would be skipping this update for anyone that wants to update.
19205 is the stable one at the moment.

I was able to upgrade my 3.0 to 3.4 last night with the new style interface, it even added climate control to the head unit. Looks like you might even be able to update units with NAV with new map data? I will post a photo later.

Yes.
You’ll need to redo the whole process to update the maps however. You won’t be able to update just the maps only after you upgrade to 3.4 (if you want newer than what you installed during the upgrade).
If you installed 3.4.20021 you will need to install v3.4.19200 first before starting the process again (with included new maps).
