Sync 3 2.0 build 16074 update NEEDED

I bought my 2016 f150 platinum used and apparently the APIM has been switched because the current one in the truck DOES NOT even have navigation option(???). SO, long story short I NEED a download for sync 3 2.0 build 16074

SYNC Region: North America & Canada

Navigation Variant: No

Old SYNC Version: 2.0 16074

New SYNC Version: 2.0 16074

Do you have a error message, if so what is it?
Every update I have attempted. ( yes, VIN SPECIFIC) has fail saying this update is for a unit WITH navigation

Update Method: Other

Syn3 Updater Version:

Syn3 Updater Documentation Read:

Not really sure what do you want to do, i.e. why not going to 3.3 or 3.4 even…
But, you can search for available packages here →

Since you are just looking for Sync3, that should be under APPS.

Also, you mentioned failed upgrade attempts. What did you do?.

You should run the APIM Interrogator Utility in the Syn3 Updater and verify your Sync unit. Yes, Platinum models should have Nav. The VIN specific update packages from Ford have issues in that vintage.

Also, if you plan on keeping that unit in the vehicle, I recommend you update to at least Sync 3.0.20204 which is the latest release for that series. 2.0 16074 is outdated, slow, and buggy. Otherwise you can update to the latest Sync 3.4 series via reformat using the Syn3 Updater app.
