Syn3 Updater Log File


And hopefully a SYNC update.


I just had my maps updated to ANZ 2 22 during a service.
Are you on the same version?

Yes…that is the current version, the new update being released shortly will be 5.23 or something similar.
I assume you are still getting maps free from Ford?

This is my first update to the maps since the car left the factory. I was on ANZ 19 map before.
It says we get 5 years of free updates so mine would expire at somewhere in the first half of 2025. Would that mean I’d need to get a service before then? I wouldn’t pay for a map update as I use CarPlay as primary navigation. The Ford Nav is just a backup solution for me.

Yes, you could get a service before then if there is a map update available or you could do what I do and get them free through Cyanlabs along with the same software updates that are on the Ford update site.

Both map and software updates are often available through Cyanlabs before they are released on the Ford site.

Not possible to use CyanLabs updater for maps on MY20+ units unfortunately.

Yeah, sorry…I just didn’t check your model. :smiling_face_with_tear:

You could use FMODS’ universal reformat tool that works on MY20 models…

…For certain regions yes

They moved it to May 20th now. Must have needed to remove some roads so they have something new for next year. :slight_smile:


Soon, i have received a link to the files, however as this is not a official source this will not be implemented in Syn3Updater at this time.

Edit: only NA files so far

EDIT: direct links found, will be added to syn3updater tomorrow, NA only currently


Thanks for that…could you please advise when ANZ maps are available down the track… :slightly_smiling_face:

2.23 maps are available through Ford now for those that get them that way.

Ford - Sync3 Map Update (

Update- I noticed that the 5 year package for map updates is no longer offered. Makes me wonder if they only plan on updating it for 4 more years now. This is the last year for Sync 2 map updates.
