Determine Region by IVSU Versions?

Hello,
Is it possible to tell which region by looking at the IVSU #’s? I purchased this head unit as a replacement and would like to get it upgraded and hoping you can point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Hello.
These fellows are no amateurs.
So yes, there’s a way…

They have built an ISVU’s database, which can be found here → Ford APIM IVSU Database – CyanLabs

By searching the part number, you will be able to find what’s on the APIM.

But, a word of caution: you are seeing “software versions” that are running on the APIM.
The APIM is hardware… HW information can be found here → Ford Hardware Database – CyanLabs

I’m saying this becase there’s a slight small chance that the SW and HW might not be equivalent, it depends on what the previous owner did… Again, small possibility, not likely…

Also, please make sure to check the Ford section of Cyanlab, there’s a lot of info there → Ford Hub – CyanLabs

Checking the hardware part number from the same menu would be the best way.

This looks like a NA unit. To see what it is, please run this utility and post the results.

You will need Edge or Chrome with the Google Translator installed. Go to Ford SYNC 3 - мультимедиа и навигация (с. 15) - Ford Focus 3 and download GB5T-14G386-AC_1587495565000.TAR.GZ
43Kb Interrogator_Log/utloggingutility. This will allow you to see what is on the APIM and the storage space and file structure. It will create an xml file you open in Internet Explorer. Run this like an update with an autoinstall file:
Create usb with SyncMyRide folder
Root is autoinstall.lst and DONTINDX.MSA (optional) files
Autoinstall.lst looks like this:

[SYNCGen3.0_ALL]
Item1 = GB5T-14G386-AC
Open1 = SyncMyRide\GB5T-14G386-AC.tar.gz
Options = Delay,Include,Transaction

Remove the numbers on the filename. Run this and then open the xml and go to the bottom of the file to see your storage. The asbuilt info is also in the file near the top.

You will see a xxxx-14G370-xx, xxxx-14G371-xx numbers in the xml file. These numbers are the actual part number for the assembly.

This is not posted on the IVSU database.

ECU Delivery Assembly Number = HB5T-14G371-CAG IMG_2294

A listing on 2GFusion.org confirms this is a 2017 USA NAV APIM 32GB.

The unit will work in the 2015 Edge, but you will need to find a VIN for a 2016 or so Edge with the same options you have, Sync 3 of course, to program the unit to you vehicle properly. It will probably work just installing it, but you might have some issues with climate controls, etc…, if it is not programmed. Here is a starting point from a 2017 Edge from the F150Forum. https://www.f150forum.com/f118/sync-connect-retrofit-any-ford-452708/index287/

The first hing you do is to install the unit and get it to work without DTC’s and DO NOT upgrade it to 3.4 until that is done. You will thank me later…

good morning on the new kuga 2020 my20 how can I see the image of the looking at the IVSU screen which keys you need to press …

Ignition on, Audio playing with Audio tab fullscreen, press and hold power and skip back for a few seconds.
Diagnostics will start with Speaker Test. Exit test and select APIM diagnostics.

Beware that there are reported issues with MY20 models

yes I have already had problems with the sync my20, in fact I will have to take it to the ford workshop, or they will repair it or replace it hoping that I find it with the same update I had at the beginning that I bought it, it would be the 3.4 20136 maps f8 , then from the ford site or inserted the 3.4 20196 maps f8, but what can be installed and what can not be installed in my20? … thanks

MY20 can work fine in autoinstall mode just not in automatic (which may pick reformat/downgrade)

in what sense I cannot understand automatic and non-automatic

change the install mode in the settings, please read the documentation for the application
