Never miss a software update!
  1. Set a recurring schedule: For more complex software updates, your vehicle cannot be driven during the installation (typically up to 1 hour). We recommend setting a recurring schedule for a time when your vehicle is not needed (like overnight).
  2. Confirm you have Automatic Updates ON: Most software updates happen in the background while you are driving as long as you have automatic updates toggled ON. This setting is ON by default but we ask that you check your settings screen to confirm.

Both actions can be completed from the settings screen in your vehicle. Click here for step by step instructions.

Is this sync 4 only?

My preference would be to get notified in the FordPass app so I can download to a thumb drive and apply the updates manually. I find the updates over WiFi to be painfully slow.

It's a trap, turned off all my updates on the Sync and my phone. Ford Pass 4.16 be damned.
I did that just so other people can be the guinea pigs. :giggle::giggle: The first update from when my Bronco was barely two weeks old messed up a bunch of stuff for a few months!

Ya, I'm not one for automatic updates without patch notes. I'll be turning that off, first chance I get with my broncho, and manually update it after feedback has been obtained to avoid a bricked bronco some random morning I need to get to work.

*forgets where they are*
kindly update our sync3 devices to sync4 and perhaps we can discuss updating per your instructions at that point
