Who knows.  Perhaps if every vehicle connected at the same day to download a 1.7 GB file maybe their server would be too slow.   I wouldn't give them this much credit,  but it's plausible that it some how staggers it

Has anyone successfully received this update over WiFi? Isn't that supposed to be one of the features of the system, to automatically download and install updates ?


The upgrade website alludes to wifi updates. I guess pushing an update out via wifi may add another layer of complexity as well as some more pilot testing.

I'm sure the wi-fi updates are staggered.  You should also verify your wi-fi connection and settings are still valid and working.

I updated manually, using a USB stick.  I'm disappointed that my home screen still does not have the heated seat and steering wheel functions on them like some of the newer Edge's and MKX's have.....   I thought this was a function of the Sync 3 software.   Apparently not.  At a minimum, I would like to have the steering wheel function there, as I can use the physical switch for the seats.

Yeah that was the first thing I check...  I miss that little "heating wheel" icon half the time and hit "home" instead.

 

That should have been an hardware push button or double up with the seat one.

VisionPilot  - I actually wish the home screen was more customizable in general.  Personally, I'd like it to be split into two halves, with Map on one side and entertainment on the other.  I don't see the point of the phone window, and there is way too much wasted space in general.

 

Small complaints, but definitely areas for improvement.

 

There are a few subtle changes (like a phone signal indicator always visible in the upper corner) that are nice corrections of existing oversights. 

 

Overall, a nice update.

Does anyone have a screen shot showing the 2017 heated steering wheel button?

Can anyone confirm the part number for the Apple CarPlay compatible media/USB hub for the '16 MKX?

Well, upon trying to complete the setup process by doing step 4 on the Lincoln owner site, there is no XML file to upload as requested.  Interesting.    So, now it doesn't think I've completed the setup.  This is frustrating.

I found the xml file inside the syncmyride zip file, not the main directory.

I noticed that mine had Android auto but not Carplay. Not that I care, but it's interesting.

I left the zip on my c drive, in the download area, and unzipped the contents to the USB drive.  So, there is no zip drive on the USB stick.

When I unzipped the download from the lincoln site, it left two files on my usb. One was a .lst file, the script for the install. The other was a zip file itself, called syncmyride. That zip had a bunch of files in it. After the install,I found the xml file inside.

Try going to the usb drive and clicking on syncmyride.

On my USB, that is a folder, and not a zip file.   Here's what it looks like.  There are only a handful of files in that syncmyride folder.

Sorry, it's a folder on mine and not a zip. I misspoke. Look inside the folder though. I think the xml will be there. It was for me.

That was the first place I looked, when it wasn't in the root.  No where to be found on the USB drive.

 

Going to attempt the procedure again and see what happens.

 

Of note, after the first attempt completed, and I restarted the car, the nav map wouldn't load in the home screen, nor could I switch to navigation from the touch button.  After a second restart of the vehicle, it came back.

That happened to me too. I don't see apple carplay anywhere. I'm an Android but anyway but I find that surprising.

Second attempt at install, no xml log file anywhere on the USB drive.

After doing the update, I appear to have some Android Auto configuration options, which I enabled.  But for the life of me, I cannot see how to actually make use of this functionality?  How do you get your phone apps to work in Sync 3?

Go into the android auto options, and enable it on Sync 3. 

 

Install Android auto on your phone. 

 

Connect your phone to the usb port. 

 

Open up Android auto on your car, pair it with the car, and tell it to turn on automatically when you connect.

 

From that point forward, whenever you plug the phone into the USB port, you'll be looking at googlemaps on your screen instead of android auto.

 

BTW, I was never able to get that XML file to upload via the Lincoln website.  However, I forced an update check this morning and now the site is showing me with the latest version.
