Hi Guys,

I am new. I have broken F9 map update.
I have 2020 s-max with sync 3, my20 i think.
Is there a way to get rid of the broken map files?
Any help apreciated.


Do not reformat.

Create and run the interrogator log, then copy/paste it here (redact your VIN).

I did a downgrade to 19101. Now i have 29 instead of 17 gb free space again.
Log has been deleted meanwhile, sorry.
If now with 12 GB more it does not work, i’ll post it.

Thanks so much meanwhile!

Ok, if you have that much free space, perform an upgrade WITH MY20 protection enabled. Since your unit is EU and F10 maps are not locked, you can install them without reformat.

Just make sure it’s not a reformat install.
Also, read the tutorial, since an AUTOINSTALL for MAPS takes a long time and multiple reboots (do not interrupt the process)

EDIT: The tutorial is for NA, but the general principle applies to EU as well → North America 2.20 Map Installation (Stand-Alone without Reformat) . That’s a manual method, but Syn3updater can create that for you now.

EDIT2: Maps are F10, not F20… Fixed the typo…

I"ll use the automated version that Syn3updater offers and update to the latetest Software and maps. Due to the tool europe current map is F10.

I’ll let you know if syn3updater saved my day after f.o.r.d was bugging me the whole day. :grin:

It worked! After going back 3.4.19101 i had enough free space, do flash latest version and maps again. Took nearly 4 hours, but it worked out well :slight_smile: Thanks for the quick support!


Wow, 4 hours…

Good it work, enjoy it!
