I have a 2020 F150 with factory install sync 3.4 (latest version). Converted to right hand drive in Australia. Importer did not activate Navigation maps. I see the arrow but no maps.
What are the possible implications of running the AUS update and maps over the USA NAV?
I do also have a factory built right hand drive Mustang - it came with Sync 3.0 and Aussie Maps. I was able to run the latest version update from this site and its worked perfectly.
I do have Forscan software and OBD adaptor. I have already changed some settings in the F150 and know my way around Forscan.
What i really want to guage - if i run the AUS maps update into the USA F150 is there a chance it will brick it? Can i reverse it and go back to previous version? I can’t just take it to the dealer to fix if it breaks.
Hey, thanks. Is the country code in the APIM module? I noticed in the software it says not to put incorrect region into the update settings.
Has this been tested - different regions into different systems?
Will all the other vehicle features like massage seats etc all still come up on sync? I assume all those features are set in the APIM module?
By the way - this site is awesome. I’m donating 30 pounds to keep you going Thanks.
People have changed region, it’s not supported by CyanLabs it will not brick your unit and you won’t lose features, worse case your nav / voice doesn’t work, usually fixed by changing the country code in ForScan APIM AsBuilt.
If after all that it still doesn’t work flash back to the correct region
OK, no luck so far. It was about 30 mins into the initial stage where is says UPDATING SYSTEM SOFTWARE at the top of the screen. Car then shut the Sync system down to go into battery saver mode. How to i get around this?
There is only about 8.5GB Data on the USB, wouldn’t think it would take that long.
Anyway I started the car and Sync came up all looking normal - No AUS maps. Looks like nothing changed. I assume this is because the update didn’t finish.
From my experience if you only see “Updating System Software” on top of the screen, the update is not running. Sync should restart after the update USB is inserted, and go into upgrade screen (extracting files, updating memory, etc). Try inserting the USB before starting the car. Maybe also try another 3.4 version.
It might be the case that your current software version is newer than the upgrade you’re trying to install.
No, this is not true, if it’s a autoinstall it will show “Updating System Software” and nothing else, if it’s a reformat it will reboot in to the “reformat tool” and show progression, if it’s a downgrade it will do the both (updating shortly then reboot then reformat)
ok, i’ve updated the downloader now, and rebuilding the USB, will try the update on the car tomorrow. Getting late here and may need to start the car to ensure SYNC system doesn’t shut down. Don’t want to idle in the driveway at 11pm. Neighbours may not like it
Hey D, what settings did you use initially given in Aus we dont have Maps. Did you set the region to Canada - Nth America initially then select ANZ for the new version. I put ANZ in both and now have a NAv fault. Thks.
