Updating SYNC

Recommended Posts

We have a 2013 Ford Sync and went to for site and downloaded and then extracted the file to USB Thumb Drive.  Now the Question I have, once I plug that USB Thumb Drive into the cars USB port, and get the car Started, How long does the update take, like how long do we need to have the car running, for this update to do it's thing?

30-45 minutes. You can do update while driving, you just won't have access to the infotainment screen.

Mine too about 30 minutes. Just did it while driving on a road trip. Just don’t turn the ignition off while the update is processing. I’ve done a lot of these updates to ford vehicles and have seen them mess up APIM’s and such. Shouldn’t have an issue as long as you keep the car running / battery voltage about 12 volts
