Save $600! Use Google Maps, Waze or Apple Maps from your mobile device on the SYNC 3 screen rather than selecting the $600 option to add factory navigation. 


Want to retrofit SYNC 3 into your MyFord (4" screen w/o SYNC) 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. 

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.

Don't have SiriusXM radio? See our kits HERE to add it!

    Excellent product even greater Customer Service!

    Posted by Aaron on Oct 8th 2019

    I recently bought an F-250 Super Duty XL which did not have the SYNC system in it. I had traded my Mustang GT in and I had really fallen in love with the system and so I sought a way to put that system in my truck. I bought the 4” to 8” conversion for vehicles without SYNC and the install was painless. I am a novice to doing interior trim and accessories work in a vehicle and though it took me a little longer than 45 mins it really was simple. The product that you get is not just some beat up bezel and used up APIM etc, it is legit Ford OEM parts. Now I have sync 3 and on top of that the voice command as well which I really love. Not only this, but having an XL I didn’t have steering wheel controls on the right side for the SYNC system so all I needed to do was purchase a new upgraded XLT steering wheel for the 2017 F-250 from Ford parts dept at my local dealership. With that the whole system is complete, just like it came from the factory built that way. You will still have to activate the media/sync/phone button switch cluster on the new steering wheel, but you will need to search out how to do that.

    I’d definitely recommend this product to friends and family and I would definitely purchase this system from 4D Tech again!

    Upgrades the way they should be !!!!!

    Posted by Keith Knight Huntsville Alabama on Aug 9th 2018

    I ordered my 4" to 8" kit and less than 48 hours later the install is complete . Detailed instructions along with videos made the installation a breeze . Start to finish @ 40 minutes and I was done , satellite linked up , programming took seconds and kit performed flawlessly . I will admit I am familiar with the removal and installation of these F250 kits due to the fact I unfortunately went with a competitor of 4Dtech the first time . I wont name any names , but I will say that 4Dtech promised a kit that would work and man do they deliver !!! I am completely happy with the kit and the simplicity of the installation . So take it from someone who has tried from others , don't waste your time go with 4Dtech the 1st time !!!!!
