New Snyc Update Success?

So I downloaded it and installed it on a flash drive. Turned on the car plugged the USB Drive in pressed aux then menu and got nothing. Anybody try this new update yet and succeed?

The new update date has some really good features like not needing to say "Bluetooth audio" everytime you start up your car as long Bluetooth is on.

Any help will be great.

Finally was able to get it working right. Update is fantatic. No more having to say "Bluetooth Audio" all the time. Plays right when I get in the car if not connected just press the aux button and it detects right away. Also tells you what s9ng and artist is playing.

Cant you go to a Ford dealership and they can quick check for an update and apply it if needed? And when did the update come out? I'm curious to see if I need one as well.

Just create an account on the my ford site. It will ask you what car you have and I think the VIN number. From there it will have all your info on what Snyc system you have and what not.

Can one of you guys elaborate on what you did to get it to work? I have some bluetooth issues with my phone and would love to have this resolved when my car comes out of storage real soon now.

First sign up at the site to download the file.

https://owner.ford.com/tools/account/sign-in.html

Download it to your desktop. Once downloaded, open up the zip file and transfer it to a flash drive. I used a blank flash drive with only the files needed for the update so there wouldn't be any problems.

How'd you finally get it to work? I just tried some microcenter flash drive we have here at work with no success.

Formatted it to fat32, dropped the 3 files: syncmyridefolder, autoinstall.lst, and install.lst on it.

Started car, then plugged it in and got nothing. I also hit aux and selected usb as source. Still nada.

Going to try a different flash drive at the house.

Mine says "installing application" now for over an hour. In addition the radio didn't do what the instructions said it would do so I had to scroll around until I found the "install application?" prompt. Anyone have a step by step of what worked for you?

During installation, it may look like nothing is happening. Turn up the volume of the speakers. I dont remember but i think the voice or a sound indicates completion. The top left corner also goes from phone to Snyc off and on. It took about 15 to 20 minutes for me to get it done once I found the right steps. I can make a quick video if that helps out.

OK, that's what I had to do too. I tried again, but now it's just sitting there with the word "phone". When it first started it showed "voice active" for a second, then said "sync line in" for a second. Then it said it was rebooting, but that's been 20+ minutes ago now. Just let it go??

Just let it sit for a bit, sounds like it's working. That's what mine was doing too. It will reboot on its own when complete. To test if it did work just try to connect your phone via bluetooth, and if it can't connect to your phone that means it's rebooted and you should be ready to connect a new device.

I gave up and pulled the plug on it I have to go somewhere. Ridiculous how long this takes. How long did yours take overall? Maybe give it another try tomorrow if I didn't screw it up quitting in the middle. Also, did you leave your engine running the whole time?

Took about 45 minutes. I eventually shut off the engine. Even took out the track key and put in regular key out of frustration. I guess it picks up where it left off because it eventually completed.

Mine finally finished. Used the instructions Clearsky linked earlier. It first said install complete after like 5 minutes and I was like uhhhh....Then none of the buttons would really respond. The voice button on the steering wheel wouldn't do anything. So I pulled over and turned off the car and restarted it. Still the same. I then was frustrated and removed the flash drive. I started back on my drive home and a few minutes later it prompts me to reinstall the usb device. So I did and it picked up again and finally finished. Weirdest system ever.

Try this instructional video, should be the same process:

http://youtu.be/4q22yJ49pW4

For those who have raxiom nav, you have to be at the phone menu. There are buttons bellow call/end on the left side. You can browse Sync menu using these buttons.

So you didn't even need to have it on run? Interesting since the directions at the ford site say to make sure you're NOT in accessory mode.

Read this thread and have my sync updated and it worked thanks guys never would have known if it wasnt with these, I, updated mine with just the accessory on don't like to turn on the car with just sitting in the garage, too loud for the neighbors. Quick question what other things would I notice with this new update other than not saying Bluetooth audio anymore to connect to my Pandora?

MPT TUNE, Borla S-Type, Airaid Cai, Ford racing X pipe, Mac ceramic shorty headers, 2010 GT500 rims, 35% tint, Sr Springs, J&M phb, camber bolts, blacked out side markers, front and taillights.
