Updating from 3.0.20204

Should I update a 2018 Fi50 and Edge, both with Navigation from 3.0.2024? What is the best approach?

SYNC Region: NA

Navigation Variant: Nav

Manufacturer Year: Pre MY20

Install Type: OEM

Old SYNC Version: 3.4.20204

New SYNC Version: 3.4.20204

Do you have a error message, if so what is it?

Update Method: Official Ford

This is your decision to do so. If you want the latest UI with the newer maps, then Sync 3.4 is it. If you want a system that is OEM to the vehicle and has the latest Sync and map updates, then stay with Sync 3.0.

Either way will work fine. It comes down to personal preference really.

Will I have an issue with with Ford if I have to bring the vehicles in for service? As a newbie was is the best way to upgrade?

Not if they are not under warranty.

Under extended warranty

If you update those to Sync 3.4, Ford could refuse any warranty claim on the APIM (APIM ONLY). The rest of the warranty would still be fine. Just keep that in mind. However, replacement APIM’s are only about $300-400 for newer NAV units, so weigh your options there.
