I was finally able to download the new software and install it. It was actually very easy.

The only thing I couldn't do was to confirm the update to Lincoln.

 

After selecting the .xml file to verify update, this is what shows up in the box to be sent to Lincoln.

 

C:\fakepath\Sync_WV1L007D_2LMTJ8LP2GBL55343.xml

 

I can't believe the C;\fakepath should be part of this?

 

 

Now I am not sure if it actually went through although it did say update successful and lists version 2.2.

Fakepath is normal - it's a safety measure.   The website will catch up  eventually.   You can try using the "check for update" feature to hurry it up.

Now that AA/CP are here what is next? 

 

I'm hoping for integration of AA/CP to our instrument panel and actual good use of the color screens and show artwork and map.  At the very least the can do that on Sync itself and not necessary through AA/CP.

Although I mostly love Sync 3, the handling of music is clunky. I think it needs a preset screen. My bmw had one screen where you could gather all your posts from different sources. That meant I didn't need to do a lot of clicking and scrolling to get from one back of presets to the other.

If you're talking about having up to 18 presets on one screen I agree.   There is plenty of room.   If you're talking about different sources on one screen you'll have to describe that in more detail.

My bmw let you mix sirrius and fm presets on one screen, so you never had to switch sources.

Now that would be handy along with buttons for other sources on the same screen.   One button would get you a Sirius station, FM or AM station, USB, Bluetooth or CD.

Finally had the dealer force the update. Lost the WIFI settings which was easy to reload. Lost the Bluetooth connection to the phone which is a b_tch. took numerous attempts to delete the phone as it shows it is connected but it is not; no contacts, no way to dial out, ETC. confirmed the phone (LG V20) is working as I paired the phone with my laptop, and another phone and another car. rebooted the phone several times, in the car, out of the car, with the car on and off ETC. So the best conclusion I can come up with is the car Bluetooth sync isn't working.
Ideas? right now it will be back to the dealer when I get a chance.

I have to say this is one annoying system as when I bought the car there where issues but those cleared up. Couldn't get the updates to work, but WIFI has been no problem. the wife's 2017 CRV has been flawless, but admittedly a little less functionality. what good are functions that don't work well?

Master Reset should fix the phone problem.

actually we have now tried at the dealer a master reset (multiple times) detaching the battery for 10 minutes and deleting all current Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. didn't work. so we tried to pair my phone with a car on the showroom floor, wouldn't pair. when it does pair it shows no contacts and won't call out, etc. so it really isn't paired. basically the MKX phone screen is locked as well. so I went to Verizon and luckily a worker had a V20 so we went to my car and it paired!!! From there we applied 2 different resets on the phone the last being the nuclear option - total reset. nothing worked. the car recognizes the phone the phone won't pair. so a new phone is on the way. If not for the workers phone pairing, I would be skeptical, but it is the last resort. assuming it pairs I will be one thankful dude, and I owe Lincoln a crap load of sorry's for thinking it was the car. Sorry's I will be happy to pass out. they spent a lot of time trying to fix this.
keep your collective fingers crossed.

Hope you got the G6 instead of v20.

forgot to mention a Lincoln support rep was excellent (yes, excellent) with details on how to do a soft reset (radio power botton and forward scan key held down simultaneously) as well as a key reboot (more detailed) neither of which worked. their number is 1-8--=392-3673 #3.
