How can I split a map only update into 2 parts with a key cycle in between. So part one updates on outward 40min journey and part 2 on return 40 min journey. When car was new, all Ford map updates until F9 worked like that. Later ones a were a continuous process, with just an Options = autoinstall in the middle of the autoinstall.lst file, so the update needed a 90 min drive. Changing this to “Options = autoinstall, delay” would allow the update to be split as before and much more convenient.
I created a USB stick with a map only update using Syn3Updater, as a test, intending to do the same as above, but unlike the Ford updates, the map and voice files etc are in a different order and split into 3 parts. Does it matter what order the files are listed? Can I add a “, Delay” to the first Options = statement? Would that achieve a roughly 50/50 split in the time taken to update?
I regularly do a 2x 45 min outward and return trip, and almost never a continuous 90min drive. On any 90 min drive the route would be unfamiliar and I’d need to use the Nav while driving, so the reformat method also not convenient. When I upgraded with reformat from Sync 3.0 to 3.4 and F12 maps, it took 80 min.
A possible enhancement request for Syn3Updater would be a tick-box option to insert a delay and key cycle to split the map update, which would help the less technical amongst us to get it right
