Cannot save Radio-Stations

I had a Sync 3 (3.4.00021) which does not allow me to save any radio stations. I pressed the “Preset x” button and it says: “Hold down to save”, but the button still says “Preset”. If I short press the preset-button or the hardware-button (1) under the screen nothing happens.

So I have updated my sync to the latest version. Now the Preset-Buttons are completely gone. I can press the hardware buttons under the screen, but I can still not save any radio-stations.
Region is set to Canada, language is set to german. The F150 2019 XLT is from Canada.
Maybe I am missing an option in Ford-Sync or is there a Forscan-option? I found 1 or 2 guys with the same issue but no solution.

Run the Interrogator Utility in the Syn3 Updater, troubleshooting tab, and post the results. This will tell us the model of the APIM and the asbuilt.

By the way: I managed to get the Preset-Buttons back by setting 7D0-02-02 xxxx-xxYx-xxxx (Y from 8 to 0). Button saving still not work.

@SaNdMaN Sorry, I don`t know.

You will need to change the ACM to an EU version if you are in Germany. The US ACM is not compatible in EU. You will also need to change the region coding for Germany in the APIM and ACM.

Thank you so much for you help so far.
So ACM is the radio it self, right?
That means I need new harware?

Yes, new hardware.
