    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.

    Yōkoso, demo anata no eigo wa watashitachi no nihongo yori zutto sugurete imasu.!



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    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.
