Software Update Overview
Although there may be other or newer updates on the web, you will find the latest stable releases of SYNC 3 that we currently ship with our kits. There are separate links for navigation and non-navigation software updates. Do not try to install the wrong software package on your unit as it will not work and may damage your SYNC 3 module. We do not provide any technical support or take any liability for these software packages. We only host them as a convenience to our customers.
PLEASE NOTE: Unless you are experiencing an specific issue, we do not recommend upgrading the software.
Don't Bother Reading This Section
3.0 and 3.3 contain the SAME basic functionality. 3.0 is the latest major version for most SYNC 3 systems and new builds are continuing to be released by Ford. 3.3 is a newer software line for certain (not all) 2019 vehicles that have some advanced vehicle features that SYNC 3 has to communicate with. Ford changed the way they were installing software on these modules - therefore 3.3 is not designed to be installed on modules equipped with 3.0 or lower. If you have 3.2 or higher, you will use the 3.3 update below. If you have a current version of 1.0 to 3.0, you will use the 3.0 update below. YOU CAN NOT INSTALL 3.3 on a module that does not already have 3.2 or higher - PLEASE DO NOT TRY.

PLEASE NOTE: Part numbers determined by removing the module and looking at the part number on the white sticker. We do not provide support in determining which upgrade is required or issues as a result of the upgrade process. Installing version 3.0 and higher in some older vehicles with the two-screen instrument cluster will cause "Bluetooth" & "USB" to no longer show as a source selection in the cluster. You can still select these as a source from the touchscreen and have it play track information on the cluster.
Software Update Installation

Download the appropriate file from the list above.
Please do not download this file directly to your USB drive!
