    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...

    Hello I just got my first Ford and it's a 2018 Escape. I've had this odd "problem" happen where the audio mutes when I'm at a drive through window. Is this normal activity? I had a rental a week ago, Chevy Cruze, and it did the same thing. Has anyone experienced this?

    2022 Ford Escape Sync 3 system: I purchased my 2022 Escape in April 2022. I do like the vehicle. That said the navigation, phone, etc. is TERRIBLE. Ford should be ashamed of themselves for even putting it in any vehicle. The system was designed by Blackberry, a company who does technology...

    Just checked the Ford owner site for an update for my 2016 SE and it says I’m up to date at version 3.0.20204. I’m surprised since I haven’t updated in well over a year. Is there a newer version in the works?

    So, since this seems to be depressingly common, I figured I'd make a separate thread for it to avoid further clogging of other threads. If you're having trouble updating to v3.0 (or any version really), shoot me a PM or ask with the details of: 1) What error do you see? 2) When? 3) Have you...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to upgrade my Sync system so I can have Apple CarPlay capabilities, but I'm not sure what year Escape I should be getting the part from. Should I just try to get the newest one I can get? Currently I have a 2014 Escape with MFT, and I'm looking at getting a used APIM...

    Did a search of the forum trying to find exactly the answer I need, but didn’t see my specific conditions, so here goes a post. We have a 2013 SEL. It has the SYNC infortainment system, but the original owner must not have paid for all the functions. Big screen, no backup camera. Didn’t have...

    My Sync 3 system has decided to go to next song, in the middle of a song, while playing from an external drive. This has happened several times this past week.

    Hoping someone here can help me, I've been searching for the last few days and can't seem to find an answer. For the last few weeks while waiting for my Escape I have been converting all my CDs over to FLAC files and loading them onto an external SSD. When I received my Escape this past weekend...

    Sync/radio randomly stopped working on 2015 escape se. only button that works is the menu button and that only prompts a few settings (camera, clock, and display). If you push the menu button again, the screen blips and goes back to a black screen that only shows date time and temperature. Voice...

    I have a used 2013 and when I use the USB to play music through my phone (IPhone X) the playback just quits. It usually will stop playback when I change to shuffle. I don’t like using Bluetooth option as I find the sound quality is lessened. I have erased and reconnected my phone a couple times...

    Anyone have any idea if the Sync 3 NAV is impacted by the WNRO? Quote: "The GPS Week Number Rollover (WNRO) occurs every 19 years, with the next rollover taking place on April 6, 2019. Similar to odometers in older cars rolling over from 99,999 miles to 0 miles the GPS WNRO is the resetting of...

    I just took delivery of a 2018 Escape SE with Sync 3. The icons for all of the Sirius channels are missing. I just updated to Sync 3 to version 3 and the icons are still missing. Anyone else ever have this problem? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Pretty much ever since I've had my 2017 Escape, I've noticed a screen flicker on the display when connected with Apple CarPlay. It usually happens when I drive over any kind of bump. I thought it was probably because of my junky USB cable for the longest time, but then I switched cables and...

    Is it at all possible to upgrade SYNC to SYNC 3? I contacted 4D Tech and they said they have a unit in development. But what would keep me from scrounging a junk yard for a SYNC 3 unit and installing it myself? (aside from lots of labor and such) Currently have 2016 Escape SE 2.0 w/ SYNC...

    Hello All, I just bought my 2017 Escape (Tech Package 300a) on Thursday 16 MAR 2017. I have a weird bug I can't figure out. The bug: If I leave the Escape unlocked in my garage, when I start it the next morning, I can't get any audio from the Sync 3 system. Also, the GPS will not acquire...

    So, my Sync 3 worked fine on the way to Walmart -- but when I started it up to come home, the Sync 3 screen was completely black. None of the mechanical button inputs worked -- radio power, DISP, steering wheel controls, etc. Looking back on the 2013-16 pages, Sync seems to have a history of...
