    New v3.0 Build Available

    Yesterday morning while connected to my home WiFi, I searched for upgrade and it immediately started the download. I let it go the rest of the day parked in the garage and not running and when leaving to go out to dinner that evening and when I started the Explorer it had finished the upgrade.

    2019 Ambient Lighting Locations

    I noticed this just the other day on my 2018 Platinum that their is no light on the lower front doors and I did have the lights on my 2016 Sport. Did you also notice that the lights in the cup holders have been moved to the bottom of the holders now?

    ford pass location

    What's the fix for when setting up the FordPass app on an iPhone X and selecting United States for the location and it sets it up for Canada? I'm running the latest version 2.6.0 of the app and I have removed and re-installed the app several times and it still sets the location to Canada. I have...

    My New 2018 Explorer Platinum

    I also love the new 2018 rims. The standard platinum rims would be way harder to clean.

    Upgrading from MFT/Sync 2 to Sync 3

    Also on that page, make sure you watch their install videos. There is one for installing Sync 3 and one for swapping out the USB module which you will need to do if you will be using Apple CarPlay.

    Upgrading from MFT/Sync 2 to Sync 3

    HDJulie, I see that you have a 2016 Explorer, this is the correct link for their 16 Explorer upgrade kit as the 16 only has 1 USB port on the USB module. https://www.4dtech.com/16-ford-explorer-sync-3-upgrade-for-myford-touch/

    SYNC 3 in a 2016 Explorer

    After I did my upgrade, the compass bounced back and forth until I drive the Explorer around for a few miles then it stopped and is working perfect now without disconnecting the stock GPS. Everything is working perfect with Sync 3 and I love Apple CarPlay.

    How to turn lights off when idling

    I have found that if you only want the signature lamps on during the day, you must have DRL disabled and have your lamp switch set to OFF. If you have DRL enabled and in drive, the LED low beams will also come on with the signature lamps.

    2016 Explorer LED Fog Lights option??

    Sorry for the late reply but yes these lights do fit the 2016. I haven't had any issues with them since I installed them. The Amazon site even shows a picture of a 2016 Explorer.

    2016 Explorer - Dimming in instrument cluster on start up

    I also see this "DIMMING" at every startup. I think it has something to do with the cluster lights or daytime running lights. I couldn't find anything in the manual about it.

    New owners!

    I know I've seem that EX somewhere, looks like mine! I hope you enjoy your Sport like I have enjoyed mine. So far I have had NO problems with it. Mine came with the ugly amber fog lights and I swapped them out for LED bulbs. I also swapped out the puddle and license plate bulbs with LED. I don't...

    Very Nice!! I like the added EXPLORER letters on the hood. Enjoy it as I really have been enjoying mine and I do get allot of looks as I drive down the road. The other day while waiting at a traffic light, some guy gave me a thumbs up. :thumbsup:

    Bad or Burnt Exhaust smell in cabin during hard acceleration.

    I've got 1500 on my 2016 Sport now and I haven't yet smelled anything like what others are complaining about and I've been a little hard on it a few times checking out the twin turbo's. The only time I smell exhaust is when a old piece of junk clunker with muffler issues gets in front of me and...

    2016 Explorer LED Fog Lights option??

    Thanks Britta-S for the LED Fog lamp suggestion. I finally got around to installing these JDM-ASTER lamps and they look great. I hated the amber look with the factory lamps. Have you had any issues with the new lamps since you have installed them? They seem to be pretty well made and really a...
