does method 1 inculde US Maps?

No sorry this is EU only.

DAB radio logos will usually need a module upgrade on your car itself via something like ucds

radio logo usually requires a module software upgrade via UCDS or similiar. map issue is probably due to not having the correct maps for France, please check the link that has extra packages.


What country?

It should do yes.

thanks any i assume the format tool is the same so i will keep looking for the US map for 3.4

no the format tool is a universal tool, you just need the US maps, i had a link to this the other day but unfortunately can't find it any more. i think i found it on the f150 forums, if you search enough i'm sure you will find it.

Please Sync3 Build 3.4.19200 Thai version and Thailand map. Thank you.

Has anyone has tried this method with a Non-nav unit? I am very interested in this upgrade and have a Non-Nav unit running 3.0. Thanks in advance.

Should work, just remove the nav packages from your reformat.lst

I won't be supporting non UK as i can't test anything other than that, there are other guides online for US, France, etc. etc.

Hi ! I have followed your instructions and the update is well done. Thanks !
Only one issue : no map ! I precise that my car is from France. In the zip archive on Google Drive, you have added many maps, but these maps are not listed in the reformat.lst file. May this be the cause of my issue ?

I answer to myself : i have added lines "MAP:xxxx" for each missing map (i mean each file included in zip archive but not listed in LST file). I made a new install (using the both USB keys) and everything is OK ! :-)

After that installation of sync 3.4 19200 is possible to upgrading to 19278 ?
Does the update function of Sync3 still works or we need to update it manually?
Thank you.

I answer to myself: you can download it from and modify reformat.lst file changing




hi @motorsport-e1d47bee382b1025db42e5a2f1d2a4ba:disqus I have the same problem: I'm from Italy but I'm not able to see the maps. Could you please show me your LST file? Mine looks like this:


Also, do you have changed something in the first key especially in autoinstall.lst file for repeating the installation? or simply you repeated the previous same step?
Thank you.

Many thanks. Worked like a charm in US SYNC 3 2.0 unit. Only question and problem is how to change SYNC talking to me in dutch to english or any other language :D
