Just tried it for our 2019 ST and got "oops, something went wrong on our part".

 Installed it on my 2019 GT/CS this morning and it works good but.... during install it has to reboot 3x. On the 3rd time it'll tell you to remove the USB but will then go back to saying installing software update after it reboots. You have to remove it during that little window when it reboots or it'll get stuck in a loop and update / reboot for hours. Install time is only 30 minutes so go for a drive and remove it at the 3rd reboot. Otherwise I believe you can remove it at any of the reboots after that but I wouldn't just pull it when it says installing. Bet they're working on that and that's why it keeps saying oops. Should stop and prompt you to remove it and STAY on that prompt until you do.

Just did the upgrade today. Took 15 minutes, no multiple re-boots.

Different cars, different options, different software modules needed.

Everyone's getting it. It'll likely be available Monday or Tuesday.

It is down because they identified an issue with some models not getting the full package therefore it has been shut off until it is resolved.

I was able to download the update for my Nautilus just now. I tried a few times during the day with no luck so it looks like it came back online tonight.

I'll install it tomorrow and report back.

Same here. I'll get to it soon. I know with my Mustang the "new search" button when using USB is disabled while driving. It wasn't this way with 3.3..

What does it take to perform the update on vehicles that were swapped from MFT to Sync 3? Right now I am looking at cyanlabs to download the latest useable version of Sync 3.4, but I'm not entirely sure that is the best path to take

The proper update path would be to have the VIN the SYNC3 setup came from and download the update using that VIN and run it via USB.

That does not appear to be a viable option for vehicles that did not come with Sync 3 from the factory. As of now, cyanlabs appears to be my best bet

Well I used the cyanlabs update file and it worked beautifully. Took about 30 minutes for the full update from 3.0 to 3.4 and maps from 1.16 to 1.19.

They really need to update Sync to get rid of that terrible blue color on the night mode, the day mode isn't much better, but at least it's not blue all over

On the Ford Owner site after typing in my VIN it says I'm up to date - I haven't done an update in ages.

 

"Your SYNC system (SYNC3 v3.0.19205) is up to date"

How do you tell it was updated?

It visibly looks different and there was a message saying it updated. Also when I plugged my phone in the car play screen came up as a new phone

That's interesting.  I have auto updates on wifi enabled, but I never saw any active connection or updating going on.

I never noticed it was doing anything but that might be because I use CarPlay a lot. Was pleasantly surprised when I started up this morning to see the new look.

So you did nothing to actually start the update process?  I just happened on its own because there is a wifi connection?

Turned the automatic updates on,  searched and searched and came back and said it is up to date.

  Had 3.4 before search and 3.4 after the search.  

Does it actually say 3.4.43?

Hmmm.  So I guess that means that wifi is active even when the car is turned off.  I have tried several times to update using a USB flash drive but no luck.  I just connected to wifi and checked for updates.  It scanned but never displayed any result - found or not.  Auto update is turned on.  Now that wifi is connected maybe it will update overnight  (but I have my doubts).
