    Did you install the beta version of 3.0 previously? If not you should have no problems. If so, you need to downgrade to 2.2 then upgrade to 3.0.

    As HDJulie mentioned, if you didn't jump the gun and download the 3.0 version that wasn't yet officially released for downloading you should be fine. I upgraded from V2.3 to V3.0 and it took about 15 minutes. Be advised that it takes a while for it to look like it actually doing anything so be patient.

    Upgrade to latest version is done, but Waze still does not show on my apps screen. Are we now waiting on an update from Waze?

    Well I don’t have any experience to share because aparantly it’s only working for nav units. Mine is not but from what I’m reading is once you open. Waze the nav icon turns to Waze. This blows for us non nav guys.

    I have the latest sync and Waze updates. It might just be the f150s at this point because that’s where I got the info from.

    I was able to get it to show finally. So basically you have to disable CarPlay and have Waze opened already. Plug in your phone and find connected apps. It will then find Waze! It’s basically mirroring your phone.

    Hey, did you do the upgrade with USB and download from Fords website or WIFI (from home)? I have not had any success with it form the site. Downloaded from both MAC and Windows, unzipped the files, treid different USB sticks, nothing. At my login to Ford's site it says there is an update to version 3.0. When I do the scan for updates within the vehicle, it says there is none for it?

    Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
    Downloads from the Ford site via WiFi is not yet available. I also am not aware of anyone finding updates available via WiFi. Likely that is tied to the first part. Are you using at least a 32GB USB drive? How many files are there on the USB stick for the update. I believe there should be 4.

    I updated mine about 1 hour ago using a 16 GB Kingston DataTraveler 100 G2 USB 2.0 drive and only took 20 minutes.

    Hi Peter, yes, I have re-downloaded to a brand new 32GB stick this time around. I haven't had a chance to try it as of yet, and there where 7 files in total.
