    2018 Ford F-150 Sync 3 8” No Nav APIM replacement

    Posted by Tom R on May 27th 2023

    Dealer wanted $1350 to install a new APIM and was nearly going to pay it just to get back my radio, backup camera, Apple Car Play, etc. Mine was FUBAR! It worked only in the morning when the truck was cold. When the truck warmed up it wouldn’t boot up. Even soft boot and master reset and hard boot did nothing. So luckily I found 4Dtech and read the reviews and took the plunge. So happy I did! I literally ordered an APIM 10 minutes before the Friday shipping deadline and got an email that evening said it was shipped. I nearly fell over when it arrived Saturday around lunchtime. Installed it myself after watching a YouTube video. I did it in less than an hour. I qualified tech probably could have done it in 15 minutes. All I needed was a 7mm driver and a couple normal screwdrivers. Now everything works and software is latest version 3.4. Thank you 4Dtech! You made my day with your fast shipping and saved me about $800!

    APIM Replacement

    Posted by Adam Schneider on May 5th 2023

    I’m not big on writing reviews so when I do, I hope they add value. I was very skeptical about spending this much on a part and installing it myself. I was frustrated with the Ford dealership, I couldn’t get a straight answer from them on labor nor would they tell me if this part was in stock or on backorder, they would known until I paid them. So I took the leap, placed the order here and watched a couple of videos. Shipping was very quick and I was able to install it relatively quickly, 1 beer and very few cuss words. Very happy with the speed and the ease of install and shipping. I would be kicking myself if I paid more than 50 bucks to get this part installed.

    Car dealers try to put buyers off non Ford units. I can say without reserve that installing was easy and it worked perfectly after installation.
