I'm so happy with my purchase! I was considering buying a new vehicle just for CarPlay but now I don't need to!! The install was easy and trust me I'm all thumbs when it comes to this kind of thing!! It took me a little over 1.5 hours just because I didn't want to break anything. All in all, worth the money considering I can keep my low milage '13 for even longer now that the tech is up to date with the times :)
Is better than expected in functionality. easy install, Get the GPS or forget it! Only reason it does not get 5 stars is the $2,000 price tag... I am still wondering if the cost is justified..
The kit was very well thought out. Most important was the clear easy to read set of instructions. I have never done this sort of thing before but it was a snap with the instructions. Only took me about a 40 minutes to install. It took longer than usual because I was documenting it in a video that you can see here: https://youtu.be/eVENpnNzRTA
I was pleasantly surprised with just how easy this upgrade was to accomplish. After I ordered the kit, it arrived in a timely fashion and was VERY well packaged. Install took all of 45 minutes and my car was back up and running. For those who are still using the old SYNC system, this is a worthwhile upgrade. I went without the GPS option (with my cellphone in use, the $600 didn't seem worth it to pay), so I was surprised to see an antenna come with it. Given it's used to sync the system's clock, I suppose it made sense to include.
All in all, if you're on the fence, then pull the trigger and get it. Installation is easy, the instructions provided in the box are clear, and the user experience once you're done is MUCH better.
Great upgrade to my 2013 Escape SEL. Easy install and works just as advertised. The advertised functionality upgrades are great and the new unit is much faster and smoother. No more lag on each screen touch or voice command.
Excellent piece of kit. Whether the move from 2 to 3 is worth the price, well that’s up to you. But the quality of this package is fantastic. Watched the online video and tackled it with no issues. Well, one minor issue. Had to head to the hardware store mid install to get a Torx T8 bit to remove the bracket from the old unit. But other than that detour the instructions were spot on, and the Sync 3 unit powered up and worked flawlessly. Apple CarPlay works great as well. Very happy with the purchase.
Works great, easy too install
I hated the My Ford Touch and Sync 2. In my Escape.
The Navigation was not very easy to use and the MFT display was not the best.
I’m a big Apple user and wanted CarPlay and Sync 3 but did not want to have to purchase a new car to get it.
Ford will not upgrade it. My Escape is in perfect condition with low millage. I just needed this upgrade. Super fast shipping and received in 2 days. Super easy to install in under 30 minutes and everything works great. It’s like driving a brand new car. I love it!
I love everything about my 2013 escape EXCEPT for the crappy Ford My Touch system. It was so bad I was seriously thinking about getting a different car or trying to cluge together an alternative radio . Ford really left the My Touch owners out to dry when they parted from Microsoft and stopped supporting the countless cars on the road with My Touch.
I was excited to find the Sync 3 upgrade from 4Dtech. Installation was easy and the results are Great! So far no more lockups, bluetooth connects very quickly and having CarPlay is awesome! The only reason I did not give it 5 starts is it is quite pricey.
