I have a 2017 Limited that I would like to update the maps.
Is this possible?
I thought that there was a thread on this, but can't seem to find it

I've moved your thread to this existing one found doing a 'Search' for "Map updates".
This may also be of interest; sync 3 which maps are installed?

Just use Android auto or carplay. Significantly better than any map update Ford could put out. Plus is absolutely free!

Yes rumor has it map updates for SYNC3 are out. Order-able only by a dealer or parts vendor. Cost is roughly $150 and they need your VIN and APIM serial number. Version is 1.16. Update is via USB and will take roughly 70 minutes to update.
i have "most recent update" per ford and dealer. it has many significant map errors on major roads, e.g. missing exchange on turnpike, wrong exit lane on interstate. ford tells me they have no planned new updates at this time. their solution was to put android auto and waze on my phone. some solution for a very expensive navigation system.
