Navigation Map Update Offer

Recommended Posts

I got a mailer to update the maps on my 2016 MKX.  I have Sync 3. I’m almost certain this offer is for early 2016 MKXs that have My Lincoln Touch. Has anyone else received this offer and am I correct?

 

Thanks,

Charlie

Yes, that offer is for the pre-Sync3 2016 MKX.

Do you need a new SD card for the update? I can't find where the SD card is.

Not if you have Sync 3.  There are no SD card slots for sync 3 only USB.

Is there any possible way to update the Nav for a SYNC 3 v3.0 in a 2016?

You can use Apple carplay or Android auto and always have up to date maps and traffic info.

 

For the integrated navigation I am not sure. I have tried it a few times but really prefer the smartphone nav

They started to offer map updates last year but stopped for some reason so no updates available yet.

@Fastfwd75, I agree about CarPlay as I prefer it as well. However, the wife prefer the native navigation.

 

@akirby, thanks!  Do you know if there is any place to get last years update? That would be better than the 1 14 version now. I’ve seen some with a 1 16 version.

It’s definitely not available now for whatever reason.

About a year ago, I had called NOW and one of the questions that came up was the Sync 3 map update. NOW told me that they had never received any information from Ford on the system and could proceed until they do. Wonder if Ford went with a different supplier for the S3 system and is unable update for some strange reason? NOW said they have no problem furnishing updates but are unable to proceed.
