    Great Upgrade

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 21st 2019

    I was very happy to find a way to add the OE nav and get rid of the cables for my phone and Garmin. Installation was super easy and the NAV works great.

    I also enabled the Sirius traffic and travel link. You have to be very persistent with the Sirius rep and have them transfer you to tech support. Tech support will be able to enable it. Although, at this point, I'm not sure it's worth it. Travel link doesn't seem to add too much to the equation - the weather is especially bad. Closest weather I can get for my local area is 50 miles away - it's not even close to my actual weather.

    Back up and running!

    Posted by Robert Miljenovich on Feb 5th 2019

    The Sync/Nav system in our 2016 F150 Platinum kept locking up, the GPS didn't work, and it was all-around frustrating. Ordered an APIM from 4Dtech and we are back up and running, better than new! Received the part quickly, instructions were included, and installation was pretty easy. Saved several hundred dollars compared to the dealer's quote and I didn't have to make multiple trips to the dealership, waiting months for the part to come in. Excellent service with a great product. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing to get their system up and running again.

    Great plug n play option!

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 15th 2018

    I was happy to find 4d tech made a nav upgrade for my truck. It was plug n play and only took about 20 min start to finish. It works flawlessly.

    Really glad I purchased the Sync 3

    Posted by Tony on Jan 29th 2018

    I purchased the Sync 3 and Android/Apple USB interface for my 2016 Ford F-150. Odering was easy, I tracked my package and was waiting as scheduled for the signed delivery which arrived quickly!
    I'm 64 years old and installed both modules in 1/2 an hour. Most of that time was taken by getting my trouble lights set up and "Mcgyver" tools to remove the dash and USB modules.
    Dash removal video is spot on. I would highly recommend buying the plastic removal tools to speed up the installation and reduce risk of scratching up your dash moldings. After I put everything back together, I couldn't see any evidence of scratches.
    When I turned my media on it came right up! I tested the navigation and it worked like a champ! I can now see navigation, hear and adjust the media volume which comes in crystal clear. I don't know how I ever managed my Android phone for navigstion. I tried the plastic holders, rubber banding it to the vents, windshield suction cups, placed in on the gauge cluster. I couldn't hear with the volume turned up or always see the little map on the Droid screen. I am "5" star pleased.

    navigation upgrade

    Posted by John Welty on Dec 20th 2017

    When I bought my new 2016 F150 I thought It had navigation and it didn't. When I asked the dealer if it was possible to upgrade the system they said I could buy a new truck. That's when I found 4d tech and they had the solution to the problem and I didn't even have to buy a new truck.
    I didn't like to use my phone for everything, music player, phone and navigation. Now I can talk and still see where I am going. The install was easy, it took about 20 minutes and all the original functions that came with the truck still function the same way. Just replace the module on the back of the original screen and you are done. Thanks 4D Tech

    This was a very good piece for my truck

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 30th 2017

    I went to the FORD house last year and a few times this year asking them if they could put navigation in my 2016 FORD Lariat that had sync3, and they said they could not do it. It was not about price, it was that they could not. I did in approximately 15 minutes with the video that made it so easy. Everything works great, even my Sirius radio.

    Easy Add-On Nav for 2016 F150 XLT

    Posted by Steve on Apr 16th 2017

    Ford refused to upgrade my Sync 3 to include Navigation... but 4D Tech makes it easy. Shipping was quick (just a few days) and install was just as easy as they said. I am not exactly mechanically inclined and the install took me about 15 minutes. System looks like it came from the factory.
