Want to retrofit SYNC 3 into your MyFord Touch (SYNC 2 with 8" screen) equipped vehicle? Now you can! Our complete SYNC 3 retrofit kit contains genuine Ford parts, includes everything needed and comes pre-programmed. Please note, some of the pictures depict the kit with navigation - We offer this kit with and without factory navigation. It may also be depicted with on screen climate controls - this kit will retain existing on screen climate controls, but will not add them to a vehicle that did not have them before.
The capacitive touch screen has impressive functionality such as the convenient swipe, and available navigation pinch-to-zoom functionality similar to what is found on your smartphone. SYNC 3 reacts quickly to your commands. From a light tap on the capacitive touch screen to simple voice commands, SYNC 3 delivers noticeable high-speed performance.
Via SYNC AppLink, launch and voice-control some of your favorite mobile apps or access them in the organized apps section, which automatically loads SYNC-enabled apps from your paired and connected smartphone.
Android Auto™ enables Google voice search, maps, music and more through steering wheel and touch screen controls. Apple CarPlay™ allows iPhone users to get directions optimized for traffic, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road with Siri® or a touch screen.

I contemplated upgrading from Sync 2 to Sync 3 for about a month once I found 4Dtech. The main issue for me was the price. In the end, I decided to go forward with the upgrade, Nav and all. I’m really pleased with it. Sync 3 is a superior product to Sync 2 from hardware to software. Having CarPlay is awesome.
As far as the unit and 4Dtech goes, everything was as described.
Installation was a challenge only because the 2014 Raptor has some extra trim pieces that must be removed in order to replace the unit. I had to keep working down and through the center console, eventually even moving the console back to access trim screws. So the 20 minute installation estimate was way off. It probably took me every bit of an hour. There are also some differences in screw sizes between the Raptor and the video.
The Sync 3 unit fired up right away. All of my Sync 2 presets, setting and SiriusXM account info was there when it turned on. I didn’t expect that!
In the end, 4 out of 5 stars because of price. I’m not sure I’d tell my friends that I spent $2,000 to have CarPlay, and I probably couldn’t convince them to spend that kind of money. But it is nice to be free of the underwhelming Sync 2. Unknown on Sep 1st 2018
I purchased the Sync 3 upgrade kit after the screen on my Sync 2 system froze and would not come back to life... even after complete removal and reinsertion into the dash. I agonized over the $2,000 price tag, but in the end I think it was worth it. I had been debating trading in my 2014 truck before the Sync 2 locked up. Not anymore. Now I'm planning on keeping my truck for several more years.
For those considering upgrading from Sync 2 to Sync 3, I offer this review.
1: Installation was straight forward. From first screw to last screw it took me 48 minutes. I had previously tinkered with the dash before, so I was familiar with how to take it out. That being said, when I tinkered with the dash before, I used 4Dtech's video to learn how. I followed the installation video, by putting my laptop in the passenger seat and hitting pause at each step. It made the installation simple and relatively painless. I suggest you watch the video a couple of times before you start. It helps. The longest part of the actual installation was the time I took to decide exactly where to put the GPS antennae. I think that cost me ten minutes.
2: The system literally is plug and play. The hardest part is making sure that you don't drop a screw behind the dash when you are re-assembling the dash. After an initial boot-up, the system came online with zero problems.
3: The system is a VAST improvement over Sync 2. Not only is the system more intuitive and more functional, but it is faster. The computing speed runs circles around Sync 2. Voice to text and voice activated navigation respond better as well. No more repeating myself five times to send one text. Dan on Aug 27th 2018
Everything was exactly as advertised. The installation was very straightforward. I recommend buying the tools needed, as they are metric (if you don’t use metric).
It’s very nice having the upgraded sync in my 2013 F150. Will help me keep my truck another 5 years. Totally worth it. Forrest on Aug 6th 2018
One word. AWESOME! Unknown on Mar 13th 2018
The Sync 3 is a HUGE improvement over the old Sync 2. The included instructions are straight forward and make it an easy drop-in replacement for the old head unit in my 2014 F150 Platinum. (Installation is only difficult because Ford made the dash/console assembly sequence very strange.)
5 stars for ease of use. Minus one star for the price of these OEM parts.
I'm super happy with the result. Chris on Mar 13th 2018
Expensive but easy upgrade for my 2013 F150 Lariat. Big improvement over SYNC 2. Using the 4Dtech install video on Youtube, it took me about 30 minutes to install the APIM, screen and new USB ports. Scott on Feb 21st 2018
