Can someone happen to link me to the two different hubs that have the usb port?
The ones in this post seem to all have the 2x regular USB and not the USB-C.
I'm particularly looking for the one that doesn't have the gap but if the price difference is enough I'll just go with the cheaper one...
I'm interested in doing the swap now, are the drivebright leds the best option if I want to have the rear cargo button upgraded as well?
Or which product are people replacing their leds with throughout the explorer and is there any other option to get the rear one upgraded?
Have you noticed any major changes other than the UI?
I was tempted to do the upgrade and then upgrade the 2x USB ports in the center console to one that has a USB-C port so I can fast charge my phone while using AA.
It shows on the chart that this is compatible with my '17 Explorer.
Have you gotten a chance to test to see if usb-pd charging works?
I have been interested in adding this but wasn't sure if android auto would be supported via the usb-c port.
Looks like there were some instructions posted on F150Forum to upgrade V3 to 3.4.
I don't have the time to try this just yet but anyone else interested in taking the plunge?

On step 4 I get the error that Owner.ford.com is temporarily unavailable.

I know I have read something on here where a few members have installed the Tesla style screen to replace the stock headunit.
How is it holding up? Do you have any regrets? Was installation pretty straightforward?
I am curious to see how it has held up.
As said above, it had a converter in it and it worked great until one of the pins broke off. Unfortunately it seems as though it hasn't been available for a while so I just had someone hardwire it for me.
I have this issue on the rear of the driver side as well. I believe it has been replaced once already through warranty and I will be bringing it up again when I go in next time. @BradleyFord did you have any luck after you had it replaced?
Sorry I may have misread your post, are you saying when you connected the USB cable you had the option for AA AND Waze?
I've always had to go through AA to access Waze but I believe others have had the option show up in the Sync menu for them, I'm not sure how as when I scan apps it doesn't...
