CarPlay and Andriod Auto are definitely the way of the future. Many of us here wish we could swap in Sync3 from MFT. I replace my phone many times before I replace a car, so I'd be much happier just mirroring the phone on the car's screen.

Heck, with a good mount, I don't miss MFT on my car the doesn't have an in dash entertainment system. Over 90% of my entertainment use is phone apps over bluetooth (audio, streaming, podcasts, navigation) so it turns out that was the killer feature for me - and I was able to add it to a 2005 with a $100 box. Would be nice to just have it mirror the phone over BT so I didn't have to pull it out and stick it in a holder though.

That's where the MFT Lockpick comes in.

$430 is a little rich for just duplicating the display. If it also brought over the input, it might be tempting. I drive the car infrequently enough that a vent mount that cost me $5 was a good enough solution.

I know from previous discussions about carplay/android auto, one of the questions was whether we could use navigation through carplay/android auto on the sync3. would ford disable this so we have to use ford nav>?

I don't know the answer, but if you look at the promo picture
CarPlay and Android Auto coming to all 2017 Ford Sync 3 cars | Ars Technica (I assume it is from Ford), you can see the "maps" app in the picture. That would imply at least that maps will come with Carplay.

Ford will not block other nav apps and there are some suggested ones on some of the literature.

"Owners of 2016 Fords with the QNX-based system"

What is the QNX based system?
