Updated Sync to version 3.018 two days ago via the Ford website which then prompted me to download 2 further maps files of 7 and 22gb respectively which updated maps to the aformentioned F7 version. Uploaded the log file and it offered up another update of 22gb. I shall run this next week to when I have time, but my gut feeling is the second 22gb update is a glitch on Ford’s system.
I checked on Ford site with my VIN and I’m due a sync3 update, which I knew a few weeks ago but now it says my maps are up to date. My RS had the HG recall done last week which included some software updates so can I have the latest v7 maps running old sync software?? I asked the dealer to do the sync3 update for me whilst it was there but they said it’s a chargeable service even though it was getting other updates 🙄
2017 Nitrous Blue RS with every option except shell seats – no blue bolsters for me though.
It is certainly not a chargeable service, that just means they could not be bothered. It takes quite a while to download then upload to the car. Hence them hiding behind a charge.If you have time just do it your self. Just check in the settings before you start an see which version of sync and maps you are on
I’ve just updated Sync3 to 18025 no problem, but the Ford website is saying that my system is now up to date with no option to update maps which are not version F7. The link to the unofficial release is also not working.
Mine took a few minutes to register the update and give me access to the maps – its still telling me there is a 22gb update available on maps even though I have updated to F7 with the last 22gb update…

RSJon I have had exactly the same happen to me – done one 22gb update and now the Ford website is stating that there’s another 22gb to do. Did you get to the bottom of this by any chance?
I have Recently got my RS and it also needs this update can anyone post an idiots guide of how to do this please. I am a computer mong and i have tried to update using the instructions on the Ford website, so far all I’m getting is an error message saying to down load the files again. Help please!
I am afraid I can’t offer you any help re carrying out updates personally, however, from your other thread, I gather you’ve only very recently collected your Red Edition from your local Ford garage, perhaps you could ask them to install the updates FOC as a courtesy gesture being as you’ve only just purchased the car from them. Worth a try, nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that, just a thought.
I hope your still enjoying the car, let us know how you get on.
