Just a quick question, as I cant seem to find the answer anywhere on the forum, my sync version is
3.0.20204, with Nav, will this update ok, or am I likely to have issues as its the latest sync 3.0 version from Ford.
Let the app decide what’s best based on what you want, but with map installation a format is required. But what I mean is leave the option in “AUTODETECT”, do not force anything unless you know what you are doing.
Ive done the update everything seems to go okay, but I had this message.
after everything had finished the green screen said update successful please remove the USB, this message came up after the reboot
Sorry, I didn’t explain very well, yes I’m on 3.4 and F9 maps now, the green screen came up saying install was successful, I removed the USB, then it did its reboot, the message came up before I had chance to do a master reset, I clicked on close, then did the master reset, as far as I can tell everything seems okay, I have the radio station logo’s etc, and all the menus work Inc CarPlay, just wondering if that message is something that happens a lot and is it anything to worry about, also wondering if I need to reinstall, or just insert the USB, as it’s saying in the message, or to just leave as is.
If it is not broken, no need to fix it.
If you performed a master reset and everything is working, then you are done
And back to your question, yes, you could reinstall everything from scratch again.
But, what’s the point if you do not find issues with it?.
To be honest, that message appearing is not common, I do not recall other users mentioning it. But since you had a previous Ford update that didn’t go through either, I wonder if those are related…
But bottom line is that you are already on 3.4 and F9 maps, so I’d say you just use it like it’s now and enjoy it.
That is exactly it, a failed update will set a flag in the APIM that can only be cleared by a successful update. Reformat does not clear this and does not count as a successful update. The solution to clear the message is to install any update. You can ‘downgrade’ to 3.4.20282, then update back to 3.4.20351 and it will clear.
