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.

Ordered online. It shipped immediately and arrived quickly - very well packaged in several inches of foam. Written instructions were Ok, but the YouTube video showing the exact process was perfect. Installation took about 30-40 minutes at a very slow and careful pace. Started up and worked perfectly.
This was a major upgrade to the Sync 2 system, and Apple Car Play brings my 2014 up to the same level of tech that I'd want out of a new Explorer.
Great customer service too - they called within minutes of receiving my order to respond to a question I raised in the order comments section, and the system came preconfigured with my VIN so no dealer visit was necessary. Sean on Jan 13th 2019
I have a 2014 Ford Explorer that had the factory Sync 2 unit and after replacing it with the Sync 3, it's a total game changer! Much more responsive touchscreen, I can use Android Auto, and the cleaner interface makes my vehicle feel brand new all over again! Worth the purchase! Adrian on Aug 29th 2018
This was a great purchase, I started to fallout of love for my 2014 Ford Explorer until I got this upgrade and now it’s like I have a whole new car!! Shawn on Aug 7th 2018
Easy install and well worth the investment! Upgraded my 2015 Explorer and am extremely satisfied!! Truly plug n play! Watched the videos and it only took 30 minutes! Thank you 4DTech!! Vince C. on Jan 1st 2018
My Sync 2 was killing me, screen became so inaccurate it was unusable. Replaced it with Sync 3 from 4DTech and could not be happier. The instructional videos made installation a breeze. 30 minutes from start to finish including the included hub replacement. Absolutely love this upgrade. Thank you 4DTech! Paul W on Nov 18th 2017
I no longer want to drive my Sport off a cliff every time I have to get Bluetooth audio working! Sync 3 is such a huge upgrade. And 4dtech made it super easy, with great instructions, excellent packaging and fast service.
I agree that the force required for the side trim pieces seems scary at first, but just be slow and firm and it's really a very easy swap. Chad on Oct 23rd 2017
This is truly a super easy installation. The online videos that Scott has posted, made the install a breeze! Agree with the most difficult part is removing the side trim pieces but if you use some dash trim removal tools and take your time it makes it easier. I'm very pleased with Sync 3 and it is far better than MFT. Very responsive and the addition of Apple CarPlay is awesome! Navigation is spot on too. Took me about 30 minutes to complete and that includes swapping out the USB hub that is included with the kit. All features work perfectly and I was impressed that I did not have to reprogram all of my radio and Sirius channels again.
A shout out to the excellent support team and their fast email responses!!!

Just completed changing out my 2016 Ford Explorer's MSFT Sync 2 MyFordTouch to the Sync 3 w/Nav system I purchased last week from 4Dtech.
Scott made it look easy to pull the side trim pieces from the 2015 he used for the video. In reality, that was my most challenging and difficult part of the install.
This is truly a plug & play install although the adapter cable they provided for the new USB hub to enable Apple Carplay wasn't needed at all.
While pricey, in my mind, well worth it to me to have a system that is less likely to freeze and that will continue to be updated and improved. As far as I can tell, there will no longer be any support for Sync2 systems since Ford & Microsoft have terminated their relationship.
Excellent customer support and answered all my pre-install questions.
