      This is the part that I got for mine. You also need the plug to supply power to the new USB hub. It's different from the one you currently have. You need to look at your current plug and USB to match up to the adapter that you'll need. Go to www.4Dtech.com for the adapter.

      USB Hub:
      HC3Z-19A387-B

      This is NOT the correct part for the Explorer if you want to keep the other USB port in the center console. The correct part is HU5Z-19A387-A. I am running Sync 3 v3.0 build 18025. Both ports are working with Apple CarPlay.

      The part number I posted is for 2011-2015 Explorers that don’t have the second USB in the center console. 2016 and newer use the one you posted.

      PlatinumOwner, Yours is a 2016 so you needed that hub because of the second USB port in the console.

      Is that in the 2014 Explorer that you have listed in your profile? If so, Can you change the audio source by using the steering wheel controls for the right side dash screen change to the Bluetooth Audio Source? Or do you have to use the sync screen to change the source to it?

      On my 2014 Limited, I lost the ability to switch to Bluetooth using the steering wheel controls on the right side dash screen when I switched to Version 3.0. It was normal when it was running version 2.3. Im curious if an IPC software update will fix the issue.

      i have to use the screen. With the steering wheel buttons i only can use the seek button for select the next title or radio station and of course the hands free option. The volume knob are not working. is your system OEM or did you perform a conversion from SYNC 2 to 3?

      I did the MFT (Sync 2) to Sync 3 conversion on my 14. My steering wheel controls all work. With Sync 3 version 2.3, I could select all of the audio sources using the steering wheel controls through the right dash screen With version 3.0, Everything still works. I just can't select the Bluetooth Audio Source using the steering wheel. I have to go through the Sync screen. Once on it, I can use the steering wheel controls to change tracks and all.

      Sorry I didn't get a notification that you replied to this thread. I just logged on for the first time since I last posted. I'll grab the screen shot of it later today or tomorrow and post it. I can say for sure that your numbers are off when compared to mine. I remember most of my configuration because I looked it over numerous times before making changes.
