    Did you install the Sync 3 in your Explorer? If so, see my previous post about build number.

    Looking into upgrading my 2016 xlt 202 package to sync 3. My sync 2 is acting up.

    Appreciate any tips or advice on purchasing the apim and screen.

    Edit: from what I understand, I can just find one out of a 2017 Explorer, and swap it out. I don't care about losing the factory navigation ( doesn't work anyway:rolleyes:) as I can just use Android Auto. Also forfupdates I can use my '19 Ranger Vin.

    Please let me know if I'm missing anything.

    2017+ will work, as long as it was equipped with SYNC 3.

    My 2016 has MFT and thinking of upgrading to sync3. Was just curious to know which range of units I need to look for. Can't really justify paying 1500 to 2000 for a new unit when I can do it for a 1/4 of that price. Especially if they are not will to give me a good price for my MFT unit.
