Sync 4 has been in the works for a while. There was a leaked image of sync 4 on the 10" Explorer tablet prior to launch. Dont think they would put a brand new redesign vehicle with a system that will be outdated in less than 1 year.
Never had an issue with my Sync 3 for the 3 years I had it.Oh you were in that same boat. Had it on my 15 stang and 16 Platinum. We still own the platinum and have gone through 3 systems now. They last about 6 months before they brick and it gets replaced by guess what another refurbished one because that is all they have.
Yes, that sound great but, is Ford going to allow 2020 Explorers to upgrade to Sync 4 since it ships with Sync 3?Noticed this today - Sync 4 will have support for Wireless Apple CarPlay according to this press release:
Ford SYNC 4 Brings New Levels of Connectivity, Voice Recognition and Fewer Cords To Make Life on the Go Easy | Ford Media Center
Yes they would. Sell the vehicle is more important to them.Sync 4 has been in the works for a while. There was a leaked image of sync 4 on the 10" Explorer tablet prior to launch. Dont think they would put a brand new redesign vehicle with a system that will be outdated in less than 1 year.
Literally the only thing I need out of my 10.1” display to be fully satisfied. Using Waze Ford App for full screen is a nice half step as it looks beautiful and is really easier to navigate, but it lags considerably behind reality and I lose CarPlay functionality.I don't hate Sync 3. It works fine except when it's flaky. If Ford would fix Carplay to allow more screen area to be dedicated to it that the latest Carplay update allows for--I'd be happy with it.
Makes sense since they are aiming at Tesla. Looks like all controls are now on Sync 4 with no conventional dials or buttons for HVAC and audio.
Interestingly, the 2020 Escape is completely redesigned but, like the Explorer, is shipping with Sync 3. So I wonder if any MY2020 Fords will have Sync 4.
Which is funny because one of the biggest complaints was not having physical buttons which Ford ended up adding back in mid cycle.
