    Welcome upgrade for failing module

    Posted by Tim on Apr 25th 2018

    This was an incredibly easy to perform upgrade that my dealer was quoting a significant markup to perform. My touch screen was having issues not booting up for days at a time, and when it was on I was having Bluetooth issues and usb connection issues with my iPhone. The original module did not include nav, so for way less than my dealer was charging to replace the unit like-for-like, I was able to add the nav with this replacement. I literally had this unit swapped in and up and running in less than 10 minutes. The instructions were clear and I had zero issues. It has worked flawlessly since install, I didn’t even require me to reprogram my Sirius channels/favorites. A welcome update included is that when the backup camera is in use, and I am close to something, the screen flashes green in the area where you are close to hitting something. The module I replaced only beeped. I can’t recommend this product enough!

    Dealer said this was impossible

    Posted by Bill on Aug 15th 2017

    I took my explorer to a dealership in North San Diego. Dealer charged $135 and said my apim is bad and I'd missed my warranty. They wanted $1300 to replace it and I told them I'd look for other options. I'd bought 2 vehicles though them. So I looked and found 4D tech. I received my upgraded APIM with navigation and installed it in 15min.

    I saved $500 my Sirius, backup cam... all work perfect and now I have navigation. Well worth the price

    Thank You!!

    Great alternative

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 11th 2017

    After a visit with the Ford dealer and getting a quote to fix My Sync for something above $1150.00. That included the APIM module and 4 hours of programming without navigation. I gave them $100.00 diagnostic fee and left. After educating myself as to what I could and couldn't do I searched and found 4D Tech. Ordered the module, came fully programmed with installation instructions. Took 20 minutes and has worked perfect since. Also I ordered the upgrade with navigation. Has worked perfect since.

    Great product & Geat Company

    Posted by Unknown on May 16th 2017

    The Navigation system absolutely works as stated to include the compass on the instrument cluster. Install was as easy as the video made it out to be, the hardest part was removing the trim pieces. I would definitely recommend this product and company to anyone that is looking to upgrade their My Ford Touch system. I will use company if I have any further upgrades to do.
