It’s definitely on the high side for price but it’s plug and play and literally takes 15 minutes to install! Don’t try and cut corners with non programmed ones as it won’t work I tried!
Was super easy to install and works great. I did buy the plastic trim removal tool as it was needed to get the dash speaker out. I removed the speaker to install the GPS antenna further back in the dash. You could do this with your fingers but i felt more secure using the tool as i did not want to break the plastic trim. Now, the cost for the unit is a bit on the premium side but the one year warranty is worth the extra cost.
I watched the video and read the instructions prior to starting... it took less than 20 mins to install
Recommended this site/product to two folks already.
I bought a used F-150 (2015), and knew that I wasn’t getting the Sync3. I finally got around to ordering the upgrade, and glad that I did. It did take me longer than the 15 minutes, but I was trying to be careful to not scratch anything. I also accounted for the time to gather up the needed tools.
After the installation, there were a few prompts to go through, and I reconnected my Bluetooth phone. After that I connected via usb, and the radio sync’d with my apps.
The SYNC2 system in my 2015 F150 was glitchy, slow, and regularly crashed. It was getting so bad I was considering trading in the truck since the warranty on electronics was exprired. I found this online and couldn't be happier. It is flawless and every feature of my King Ranch F150 works with the new unit including the seat controls, temp, and backup camera with birds eye view. If you are considering the upgrade, just do it! Installation was about 45min and exactly like the video. CarPlay is a game changer.
I rode with a buddy the other day who has the same XLT Sport that I do, but 2017 vs. my 2015. I immediately fell in love with his Sync 3 and the compatibility with Android Auto for Google Maps mirroring to the truck screen. As a real estate broker, I'm always navigating to properties or just to see what my commute looks like and the recommended route with traffic. I've never been a fan of onboard GPS so have always used my phone mounted where I can see it. This is a game-changer for me. I actually started looking at buying a 2017 truck because I needed this so badly. Quickly running the numbers led me to pulling the trigger on this upgrade and now I love my truck again without having to buy a new one. Installation took inside of 45 minutes for me, start to finish. I had enough slack in the cables connecting to the bezel that I did not have to unhook them which was good because I have fat fingers that struggle with all the little clips. The hardest part for me was swapping out the USB port inside the recessed tray (floor shifter). There was almost no slack in the wires for me to get my fingers back there to unhook the existing USB/SD card hub. For a second I also forgot about the included adapter cable for the USB so that caused me some unnecessary confusion. Do yourself a favor and watch the installation video a couple of times before starting the project rather than relying on the printed instructions. I've used it multiple times a day since installation without any problems so far.
I was looking to trade my 2015 F150 Platinum and realized I love the truck but HATED the Sync 2 system. After reading the review took a chance and ordered the Sync 3 update. Pleased to say everything went as planned and the new Sync 3 is Awesome. Not even on the same planet at the Sync 2. The Apple CarPlay is fantastic.
The install was overall as easy as the video indicates. The hardest part was figuring out how to take off the top 2 connectors on the front panel. The little tabs are not where you think they are. (Better close up of these in the video would be helpful!) Otherwise a piece of cake. It hurt my feelings to spend 2K on this upgrade but much cheaper than trading vehicles.
I was looking at the new features on the 2016-2017 Ford F150's and the only thing I was missing or wanting on my 2015 Platinum was the new Sync3 system with android auto. So instead of buying a new truck I decided to upgrade my head unit. The kit that 4Dtech provided was complete and took me less then an hour to install. The instructional video really helped and I couldn't be more happier with my decision. I chose not to get the navigation upgrade since I really wanted to use google maps and Waze which works wonderfully and is voice controlled. The kit is quite expensive but I saved a lot more money by not buying a new truck! Now that I have the Sync 3 system installed I really do feel like my truck is brand new again.
Title says it all I was at a point of making a decision whether or not to keep my 2015 F150 Alum body with My Touch 2 or to turn in at lease end. Keeping in mind I've added many other upgrades so I'm somewhat vested in this truck........
But the My Touch Sync 2 was just the one thing that bugged the hell out of me especially as Ford
rolled out Sync 3 not long after I got the truck - no heads up to anybody ! (rolleyes) lol
Well this 4DTECH sync 2 to 3 + NAV upgrade was just the solution to that one niggling issue I had namely "My Touch Sync 2 " installed in this truck.
So I ordered the Sync 3 Upgrade unit with added NAV and it arrived very promptly in 3 days. I watched Scott's install video twice - brewed a cup of my fav Joe and headed out to the truck.
I had the required # 7 torx, 7 mm nut driver, and 7mm socket ready to go.
Install for me was less than 20 mins ( 20 with a few glugs of coffee ;-)) ) and was a breeze.
Put it all back together and it booted up in about 50 seconds ( tip be patient first time takes a bit)
Looked great - was all set - then I noticed my rear cam wasn't activating - so it being the
weekend - and 4DTech being closed - I just decided what the heck let me email them and
we will troubleshoot Monday (Today is Sat)
BUT ---- here's where the great Customer Service kicked in.
Got an e-mail back right away from Tech Support - saying to please re-seat the the main plug
to the module - so out I go and basically open the panel up again ( very easy job) and un seat
the connector and slowly and evenly reconnect it - put everything back together and low and
behold backup camera issue resolved - seems I was a little too speedy at first - lol
Anyway point being - Customer Service & Tech Support is excellent.
The product is quite simply top quality, fast functionally & outstanding quality.
For me this represented a key decision point in deciding on whether or not to keep my
2015 lease when it ends. I'll be keeping it as it's one great truck that has now, thanks to this
great upgrade, been able to sustain a relative level of value to me personally with being able to add this new current Sync 3 tech with Carplay and Android with NAV.
Anybody out there in the same situation as me - all I can say it - just do it as it's very worthwhile
and a helluva a lot cheaper than a new lease or purchase when you factor in new lease or
sales costs and taxes.
My 2 cents fwiw - hope it helps people to decide.
