    Since a picture speaks a thousand words, A Video must speak a million…

    I made a quick tutorial video on how to navigate Ford’s website, download the update and prepare your usb stick ready to update your head unit

    I updated to F8 successfully by USB.

    But a XML file was not created, even I tried re-plugging several times.

    In that case, according to instruction pdf, we can download a logging tool from web and use it to solve the issue.

    Do you know where the tool is? I couldn’t find it.

    No tackiness.

    The update to V3.0 and maps F7 worked for me in December last year, however, if I try now…

    …The update site now says my VIN does not have Sync?!?

    The F8 Maps update on mine never created the .XML file… The v3.0 update did however.

    But using the automatic updater built into the head unit I was able to do ~15 failed searches for updates till it had a successful search, Indicated by the current time stamped on last search at the bottom of the screen. This updated Ford’s system of my cars software version

    Hi

    Wonder if anyone can help. I can download the file from the Ford Website no problem, but when I unzip the file I only get 2 files, I don’t get the “autoinstall.lst” file.

    Anyone got any ideas? I’ve ensured the usb was formatted to expat as the instructions say, but still nothing.

     

    Thanks

    A very small map update has arrived.

    I can’t install the file right now, so I don’t know what it is, it may be a bug fix for the xml file problem.

    @bibo – Thanks for the details you’ve supplied, I have checked my version of the maps and noted mine says: “Navigation maps version: EU 4 15″…

    I have downloaded that 25GB file from Ford and will follow the method you have described, but 2 quick questions if anyone knows:

    1. What is the maximum allowable size USB (in GB) you can use in the Sync 3 systems, I know on some older systems (non-Ford) there was a capacity limitation and wanted to know if that is the case with our units? Looking around 128GB USB’s are going for a decent price nowadays and who knows what the next Sync 3 Map update file size could be….
    2. Do  I need to do any intermediary updates of the map software on the RS before I install that 25GB file – I assume it’ll be F8, as I downloaded it today?

    GM  an atlas was ‘back in the good old days’!! I only succumbed to a tomtomtomtom about 6 years ago. Getting lost with a map( down to a passenger not realising the map was upside down or should be orientated correctly as you drive etc) was fun as you got to visit some places you would never normally get to see, plus you had the fun of trying to find someone for directions, funny how everyone disappeared and all pedestrians had vanished, and yet when you did eventually find someone they would always seem to say “sorry I’m not from around here”!!

    Now we’re talking mate!! I can totally relate to “Large 3 miles to 1 inch scale” rather than 46 Gb!! Or whatever they are?? Haha!!

    Only problem is Mrs Brembo can’t read a map to save her life!! Haha!! And no amount of teaching is going to change that, lol!! But I’d be happy to pull over and check where we’re at, 👍👍.

    Group Buy anyone?? Haha.. 😂🤪.

    Cheers, Marc.
