    Odor after turning A/C off

    I don't need to use my A/C that often, but when I do, when I turn it off, there is a musty odor that lasts for a minute or two. There is no odor when the A/C is running, or at other times when A/C is off. It is not exhaust. Have had regular dealer service, and cabin air filter has been checked and replaced. Any thoughts? I live in San Diego, so humidity or mold is not likely an issue. Thanks

    Radio reset?

    Just cam back from annual servicing and noticed that the radio no longer displayed HD on the main screen or center stack (and didn't sound quite right). There was no servicing of the radio system, but did note that some settings (eg seat) had changed I recall reading about a technique for resetting the radio, but can't recall the sequence of button pushes, and had no luck searching the forum for same. Any of you wizards recall the proper incantation?

    2021 Nautilus

    The Lincoln build site appears to show Black Label only available in AWD and with only one interior choice (no themes). Is this a trend or just because it's early in the build?

    New SYNC 3 upgrade available.

    Follow up on my earlier post. Was going to give the upgrade a try, and when I went to insert the USB I had a waiting notification that it had upgraded itself over the air! And seems to work fine. As noted before, only discernible change was that speed on Waze is correct now.

    New SYNC 3 upgrade available.

    Curious-about a month ago I did the NAV map update. The download file was JR3T-14G424. The Lincoln site says I have an update available for Sync 3 download file was JR3T--14G381-AS. The car says it still has the older build for Sync 3. Am I going to mess things up installing this update, or is it totally separate from the NAVY update?
  6. Any recommendations on best product for cleaning/conditioning leather interior on Black Label MKX? Not sure if there’s a difference warranting something speacial.

    The New Ride: 2018 Black Label 2.7TT

    Congrats! I wound up with the exact same configuration. I traded in a 2016 Reserve also with only 18.5k miles on it, which had been a custom order in Feb 2016. With the available incentives and equity I had! The drive away price was less than the 2016. My monthly payment on the same 48 month 0% loan is 30 dollars less. The difference in the interiors is truly impressive. My main reasoning was that I was so happy with the Reserve, I grabbed the configuration and color I had always wished for at the end of the production run, expecting to keep it for a while. Really happy with the deal and the dealership. It was delivered from a dealership about 160 miles a way. Their Black Label salesman drove it down and delivered it to me at work. Even took me to lunch! A truly pleasant experience all around.

    Saving current location

    Trying to setup a work location. The map does not list the road correctly so can’t input the address. Ithe prompt implies that if no address is input, it will use the current location. But I never seem to be able to save anything. Anyone get this feature to work properly? I’ve also experienced this when trying to save a non mapped destination as a favorite. Thanks

    Saving current location

    Appreciate the suggestions. I’m guessing that the guidance that the system will automatically use your current location when you save a favorite unless otherwise specified is incorrect or misleading. Was trying to find out if I was just being technologically challenged in not being able to figure it out.
  10. Is a Lincoln Drive Control only applicable to AWD?

    Digital Speedometer question

    While getting my 20k service, I was wandering the lot and sat in a 2018 MKX, and the center of the instrument cluster had 4 options: Entertainment, Navigation, Phone and SPEEDOMETER, which displays a digital readout right in the center space. Was I hallucinating? Haven't seen this described elsewhere.

    SYNC Update from 2.3 to 3.0

    Mine as well.

    Adaptive LED headlights conversion

    I have a Reserve with all the bells and whistles but can’t find any menu items other than auto high beams. Where is that option lurking?

    Did Gracenote move?

    I updated to latest Sync3 version, and now I can’t seem to find the setting that allows you to choose Gracenote database or the info in the media files. Did I eat too many mushrooms?

    Update to Lincoln iPhone App

    Updated Sync a few weeks ago, newest version of Lincoln app today. Can’t see any differences.

    Sync 3 update to version 3

    Any reputable links for the update? Thought I had a good one from a Ford Mustang group, but after downloading to stick, it did not appear to be recognized. No notification that I was about to initiate an update.

    Update to Lincoln iPhone App

    Just received an update to the app which now states you can send POIs to nav system from a mobile device. Can’t see that in the app anywhere. Anyone else figure out how this works.

    Apple CarPlay Upgrade Help

    It is pretty straightforward, but do watch your data usage unless you have an unlimited data plan. Have to admit I like the Sync native nav better, but Carplay is a good backup where the Sync data might be too old.

    Hardware upgrade to enable Apple Car Play

    Just had the hardware upgrade today. Carplay up and running with one tap. It was actually quite easy to navigate. Going to Sync screen was smooth. The nicest surprise was that the center display between the dashboard gauges still allows selection of radio, iPod, USB and Sirius while carplay is engaged. I actually find the maps a bit better, especially since the traffic status is much more up to date than the fixed data in Sync. And both the front compartment and middle console USB ports support Carplay. Using Siri for texts seems to be more responsive than the already available long press technique.

    Hardware upgrade to enable Apple Car Play

    From what I gather from Ford 150 forum, the replacement hub is a two-holer, but disables the other. Anyone know if this is true?

    Lincoln Way App update

    After updating, still don't have oil and tire pressure info. Any Apple IOS users getting the advertised restoration? I know the app is communicating with modem since the gas quantity is correct.

    Article on Sync3 with Android Auto/CarPlay

    On the Ford 150 Forum someone had posted a link to the downloads. It was specifically listed as NOT for the MKX. No explanation why. Has anyone tried installing this version with success?

    Two MP3 Players in USB's?

    I successfully use combos of iPod and USB stick as well as two USB sticks (all my Christmas stuff is on a separate USB). Sync recognizes them just fine and if you name the device it will show up on screen as that name. Note: if you use a Mac, make sure USB is formatted as ExFAT. Some good discussion also on Sync3 forum.

    I had a situation where mine would never perform the Welcome routine in my garage. It was fine every where else. I think I tracked it down to a wireless network booster not too far away. My guess it that interferes with the RF signal. Otherwise works great.

    Interesting clock action on trip from California to Arizona

    Interesting that Sync can recognize those changes but not the change into and out of Daylight Savings.
