Carplay USB Hub Discussion and part number for 2016 Escape

I have seen on the Focus and F150 forums that they have discovered the new part number for the Sync3 Carplay-compatible USB hubs for their vehicles and they have already began ordering them in preparation for the (hopefully) upcoming Carplay update. I have searched this forum but I haven't seen anyone mentioning the part number for the Escape. Has anyone ordered theirs yet? What did you order? Is it the same part as other Ford models?

Also interested in official part number and/or compatible part number

I've seen talk of using GJ7Z-19A387-B, but I have no idea if it would even fit or be compatible with a 2016 Escape. Anyone else have ideas?

My research came up with a HC3Z-19A387-B (blue light) or a GJ7Z-19A387-B (white light).
TBM2013 and Pilot4prophet like this.

Upgrading USB Hub for CarPlay

Has anyone switched out their USB hub yet? If so any tips on changing it out yourself?

Did mine tonight. CarPlay works great. Pried out the plate that held the old hub, disconnected the plugs and removed the old USB hub from the plate. Reversed everything with the new USB hub. If I would have known what I was doing, it would have been a 5 minute job.

GJ7Z-19A387-B (white LED) or HC3Z-19A387-B (blue LED). I found that I could get the white LED one sooner, so I ordered it.

Installed the white light version (GJ7Z-19A387-B) last night. Very easy install and CarPlay is working well.
