Sync 3 v2.2 Official Update
SYNC 3 v2.2 just became available for me officially on the "my owner" site for me. Here are the details::
What's included in this update?
HN1T-14G381-SA SYNC3 v2.2
This software release is the latest update in our continued efforts to improve system performance, device connectivity, and the overall SYNC experience.
This software contains the following enhancements:
Updated voice recognition engine.
Navigation user interface improvements (if equipped).
Android Auto™ for supported devices.
Apple CarPlay™ for supported devices. Owners of 2016 models with SYNC 3 are required to perform a software update and purchase a hardware upgrade through your dealer.
The installation of this update will take up to 60 minutes to complete. DO NOT remove your USB drive or turn off your vehicle. You must wait until Installation Complete is displayed on the center screen before removing your drive or turning your vehicle off.
Be sure your vehicle engine is running (not in accessory mode) throughout the entire installation process. Although your vehicle must be in park when you initiate the installation process, once the download process has begun, you may drive your vehicle.
Site also says that it is possible it already may have been installed via wifi (not for me though, I have turned off wifi updates). I likely will use the USB drive method when I get around to the install.
Any feedback for the "official install" for a 2016 Escape would be appreciated!
