    So I used to have a 2014 Escape SE with which I was very happy, and then someone plowed into it while it was parked. So I went and found myself a 2013 Escape Titanium(and it's Kodiak Brown!) and I'm very happy so far. I wanted to update to V3.8 on my MFT, and I entered my VIN into my...

    There is a product on 4dtech dot com that supposedly allows a person to upgrade from SYNC 2 to SYNC3 with CarPlay. This is especially enticing for me; I have been deciding whether to trade in my '13 Escape SEL MFT with 60k miles for a newer vehicle, or to live with what I've got... The...

    Our Escape has the MFT w/ Sync navi and all. I'm curious if the Sync3 stuff from the 2016 can be swapped... any thoughts? :)

    Hello All, I spent some time last night working on installing the backup camera from eBay into my '13 FE SE. All you need is an APIM with camera capabilities. Here's the camera I used. Excellent night vision, just a tad more downward pointing than I'd like, but it's great...

    Hi All, I have been checking SyncMyRide.com for any updates every few months- I have a 2013 1.6 SE with MFT, and was wondering... should we be expecting any more Sync updates? Or has Ford just been moving forward with Sync 3 and not really looked back? Not super bent out of shape, but just...

    Hi Everybody, I'm planning on tinkering a bit with going into the MFT system on my 2013 FE SE to install a new APIM module with NAV (Thanks Turbodium!)... So, QUESTION: If I take apart the MFT dash, trim, and disconnect the LCD and APIM module, are there any fuses that could prevent a short...

    Has anyone seen this before? It started last night on my way home from work and is still doing it this morning. At first I thought it might be updating/doing system maintenance. The radio still works and my phone still connects to it via bluetooth.

    I have my iPhone 6 Plus (happens to my mom on her Galaxy Note 3 as well) connected to the car's system over bluetooth. However, half the time when we receive phone calls, it will ring for a split second and then it will auto-accept the phone call. It's pretty annoying ... does anybody know how...

    While I realize that you can go to the Audio section on the MFT and directly choose Satellite 1, 2, 3, a/v, FM 1, FM2, AM, etc., or use voice commands, I would also assume that many drivers really only work with a few of those selections. In my case, I don't even think I have FM stations...

    Ok, so I know this question has been BEATEN to death on this site, but I'm looking for the suggestions from people who have successfully or plan to install their own backup camera in their FE. I have a 2013 FE, so I've been itching to do this install. Where I am right now: A) I know you can...

    Hi Everybody, I was just thinking... if you had lockpick... can anybody think of anything cool a Raspberry Pi could do/ have any benefits? Just saw a connection between the yellow video output on the RP and the inputs for lockpick... For those not familiar with Raspberry Pi, it's a small...

    Hi, I'm new to the forums and this is my first post! I recently purchased a 2013 SE, 1.6L w EcoBoost and I'm stoked about it. Great car. I did some research, and like a few others, was bummed about not having Nav installed in my specific vehicle, or a backup camera, etc... I've been...
  13. Ford Escape General Discussion
    Hello all, I'm new here! My name is Cooper and I'm the proud owner of a 13 Escape Titanium 2.0 AWD in Grey completely loaded with the exception of the trailer tow package. I'll jump right into it: 1) Gear shifting: In sport mode / manual, I have noticed a very strange 2-3 automatic gear shift...

    Not sure if anyone has had this problem and started a thread with this. But when I would command to USB to my Ipod to play a certain song/artist and it's a blank with 0/0 on it, starts to freeze on the ipod. When I disconnect my ipod from the car it still recognizes that its plugged in. I've...

    Sadly I have to master reset the myford touch system so often that I've gotten tired of this, but thought it would be easier if i created a checklist so that I can get all the settings back the way I want after they are wiped out. Reset Steps: Take out SD & USB thumb drive Reset Install SD...

    How do you know if you have the latest version of my ford touch? I've gone to syncmyride.com but I cannot find anyway to update my system. I am never offered any newer upgrades to download. Are downloads hidden somewhere, not offered, or only offered if you have an out of date version...
