Need info about Sync update for my wifes 2016 Cmax. The GPS navagation is now wonky. The radio is also. She likes Sirius. It is now wonky eventhough she is subscribed to it. FM tuning is wonky also.
Will the Sync Update take care of the radio and Bluetooth, etc?
She gets notice to update Sync on the dashboard screen. She also got an email: From: Ford SYNC Navigation <[email protected]
> Yeah I know that could be a fishing expedition. Will check it out.
Costs $109 download or $149 USB stick shipped to our house. $109 download is a rip. $149 for USB stick w/update is a total rip off, probably safest alternative. No room for them to blame our internet, computer, my loading my own usb stick from the download. Those guys give themselves a lot of wiggle room.
I am guessing the Sync update will take care of the radio, Bluetooth paring etc. What else does Sync control behind closed doors?
I am going to see how much the dealer will want to take care of it as well.
My 2013 Fiesta has sync as well. Never had to update it. I only use it for bluetooth paring my OBDLink device. I never use Sirius radio, don't subscribe. The Fiesta never had navagation on it's screen. LOL I have always had to correct the navigation on the Cmax - no I do not want to go the round about way!
I prefer not to use anything Microsoft. I am very happy using Linux. There are distributions now that are extremely easy to use for the non nerds among us. LinuxMint for one. I like Apple devices, but Apple is just behind Microsoft in the line. Good hardware and OS, but you have to keep paying the Apple tax, and then perfectly good hardware won't run the next OS version. Then you have to buy replacements for the applications you have been using. I could go on...
