Talked to our Lincoln dealer about a Nav says problem we are having. The Turn by Turn voice, not the voice recognition voice, comes on at full volume and it doesn't respond to the volume control. Took it to our local Ford dealer and they said it worked ok. Got it back and apparently the tech just went into the OBD computer link with Ford's IDS software and turned down the volume but it's still not controllable from the volume control. Talked to a Real Lincoln tech and he said it was a Sync 3 software problem, but they were expecting a Sync 3 update to be released next week. Good news for everyone!

also had the lady talk loud to me and had other issue of the speakers occasionally on start going loud static from one speaker to the next and could not control. Had the dealer look at.


dealer kept an extra day to research and found the issue was a needed update that the DSP module needed reprogramming.  For weeks now no issue.  I also noticed the lady does not speak in a loud voice anymore when navigation starts reminding me this and that. The lady now follows the volume control set.  Is the DSP reprogramming update the true fix or not, I am not the expert but just reporting cause and affect.  Another side affect of the DSP update is that I notice slight sound delays that I do not remember before hand, especially when first starting.


Also looking forward to Sync3 update after seeing some early pictures on the ford forum.  It may be the update will also include the DSP update, but that would be just a guess on my part.
