    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.

    • Q – “I have manual climate and the bottom right corner of my screen just has the date. Will this add the on screen controls?”
    • A – No. There is not a cost effective way to add automatic climate control.

    • A – No. SYNC Connect is a separate modem optioned in some vehicles. We do not currently offer a kit to add this functionality.

    • Q – “Will this kit void my factory warranty?”
    • A – No. This kit will not void your vehicle warranty. Although Ford will not warranty the components in our kit, we do for one full year! 

    • Q – “Can I still update the SYNC software when updates are available?”
    • A – Yes. You will still be able to update SYNC via USB thumb drive from our software updates page HERE. 

    • Q – “Will this kit affect my SiriusXM subscription?”
    • A – No. SiriusXM subscriptions are NOT affected by our kit - your SiriusXM ID will remain the same.

    1. Excellent

      It is as easy as they say (at least for my car). The only trouble was getting the old plug out from the console USB. My car has that part inside a very small (C-Max) compartment with very little slack to work with. The videos on Youtube are fantastic. It really helps to know where the dashboard snaps apart, etc.

      4Dtech sent the unit and parts in the time I requested (I opted for the cheaper shipping). It was fun to watch it hop several stops to get to CA.

      I have to read up a little more to see if there is something I missed about the Modem number, which is not listed where the VIN is listed on the screen settings. The SYNC 2 unit showed that.
      I only am concerned because of software updates and the Ford websites which track the service and "USED TO" be an awesome app which functionality was lost when the app no longer worked with my phone's app.
      I also wished Ford would have kept the customizable wallpaper (My Dog's photo) feature.
      Oh well, I like it and look forward to the ease of navigation. I could have used the Car Play for Maps, but I figured if I am spending that much money, just get the navigation in case the phone is not available.
      Thanks for the great service. I suppose I will send back the SYNC 2 or check for any better offers for the fully functional SYNC 2 unit.

    2. Love having Sync 3 on my 2013 Ford C-MAX

      Love being able to replace the awful Sync 2 on my 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi with Sync 3 with Apple CarPlay. While Sync 2 crashed and worked terribly, Sync 3 works quite well and Apple CarPlay is terrific! I had my independent mechanic install it and they had no trouble. (I'm not a DIY person.) It was well worth the money. The unit was shipped very quickly. I'm very satisfied. on Feb 6th 2018


      Before ordering I had several questions which were answered promptly and in detail. After ordering, the kit arrived quickly and installation went smoothly (took about 40 minutes). Operation of the new Sync 3 system is quite good and all of the car's older features (backup camera, climate controls, Sirius, etc) work with no problems. I am very happy with the new product and with 4D Tech customer support and overall interactions. They have done an excellent job of programming the system for the older 2013 model and providing a true turn-key upgrade kit. Overall system response quite superior to MyTouch and also much more intuitive and easier to use. on Feb 1st 2018

    4. 2013 C-MaxSync upgrade

      This upgrade is so much faster than Ford mytouch. If a turn is missed the nav system has a new solution before going past the intersection. The inputting of information is so much better than the old system. It was pricey but I’m very happy with Sync3! Installation was almost to easy. on Sep 25th 2017

    5. Just Starting

      I placed my order this morning at 7:30 and at 8:00 I received an email stating that my order had shipped. I know that the package is still at the facility but these folks accepted my order, made the necessary programming to my APIM and boxed the order in less than a half an hour. Very impressive so far.

      (Side note) when I bought my c-max almost two years ago I added the Nav system to my sync2 system. This was from a different company. I looked going back with the same company but their warranty was 90 days whereas 4DTech is one year. I also added a backup camera to my old system and 4DTech programmed my new APIM to turn this feature on. I did buy their wiring harness but in going with these folks I saved $200.00. Nice start so far. Updates to follow.
