Attempted for the 4th time yesterday, still no luck. It states system updating for 40-45 minutes and then nothing happens. Went out and bought a 32gb Flash Drive, and formatted to exFAT, as per Ford website. Any suggestion as to what I am doing wrong? Here are the files the I downloaded from Ford website:

 

GB5T-14G386-AA.tar.gz

HB5T-14G386-TCB.tar.gz

HN1T-14G381-SA.tar.gz

HN1T-14G391-CC.tar.gz

HN1T-14G423-CA.tar.gz

Those are the files for the NAV version.  You do have Navigation correct?

 

Those files have to be in the SyncMyRide folder on the flash drive, with 2 others files.  They are all part of the Ford zip file.

 

Regardless of what Ford says, we have been doing this install, and have had better luck with smaller slower Flash drives.  I use 2 Fat32 16GB Formatted USB 2.0 PNY drives.  I have also used my 4GB Transcend FAT32 USB 2.0 drive with good success.

Used 32GB San Disk 2.0 and worked fine first time.

 

Manny 2525: Besides the 5 files you listed in the SyncMyRide folder - you also need on the USB drive.

 

  • Autoinstall.lst - This starts the install process
  •  
  • Dontindx.msa - Not sure what this does

 

Detailed instructions are on www.owner.ford.com under Sync3 section. Or call Ford Technical Support and they can assist you.

 

To access Technical Support - Ford Tech Technology Center - 800-392-3673 press #1 for English & then press #3 for the Technology Center. I have spoken to them a couple of times and they are very helpful and knowledgeable.
 

 

Hope this helps.

Hey everyone, I purchased the usb hub for my Ford Edge.

 

Anyone have suggestions of how to take out the old usb hub? 

What tools do you suggest?

What is the best method to take it out?

Search this thread. The tips & tricks are in this thread somewhere.

Automotive trim panel tools can be had for under $20 on Amazon. You'd be surprised at all of their other uses.

Successfully updated from1.0 to 2,2 with no problems.  on the restart I had to finally do a second restart before the maps would load.  When I tried to upload the verification file to owner.ford.com I received an error several times and am still waiting for an answer on that.  All functions work and Carplay worked fine as soon as I installed the new hub  I removed the side trim to allow me to reach the tabs and did the update with minor issues.  I didn't need to use the safety string on the connectors, but definitely think it is a good idea to tie them off to prevent loosing them in the console.  I'll update if I get an answer on the confirm step.  The upload placed the file in a root folder called C:/fakepath which I couldn't find.

Same here, been trying for weeks & still no luck on confirming the update. Just checked Ford Owners Website & it must have confirmed it on the wifi:

it doesn't really use a directory with that name - it just doesn't display the actual directory used for security reasons.

Confirm via Wifi.  Just act like you are checking for an update, that does the same thing as the file.
