Because I don’t want to brick my APIM, I need to ask couple questions:
Short info about the car: I own the 2016 Ford Escape, The car is from the US, but the previous owner modified it’s region (and probably more things) to Poland (504C). It has a SYNC 3 with navigation, and it’s current version is 3.0.18261.
What is the problem: The thing is, I use Android Auto a lot and it’s working well. But recently I switched to the Iphone and hoped that Carplay will work as well.
But when I plug in IPhone 12 via usb cabel, there is info that “IPhone was conneced” (on SYNC screen), but Carplay doesn’t start. I’m able to use apps via AppLink only, and talk to Siri if connected by bluetooth.
The first question: Will update to 3.4 make Apple Carplay works? Or it’s just not possible in this case? Because I only care about smartphone integration, and if it’s pointless to update, I will stay with Android on SYNC 3.0 version.
The second question: Is it possible that GJ5T-14G371-CFC has 64GB of memory, or was it somehow modified? Because according to Hardware Database it’s supposed to has 32GB only.
The third question: Is it safe to update unit with this kind of modifications? And if it is, do I need to cut down the maps to fit 32GB unit even if it says that it’s 64GB
