2018 Ford SYNC
Take the following steps to install a Ford SYNC update:

  • Download software updates from the Ford SYNC website onto a USB drive.
  • Turn your vehicle on and plug in the USB drive.
  • Access the “SYNC-Settings” menu.
  • Select the “Install on SYNC” option.
  • Wait for the installation to finish.

Keep Your Ford SYNC Up-to-Date

It’s important to note that these instructions are designed for 2017 model year or newer vehicles, although select 2016 and 2015 models will work as well. Let’s explore the process in more detail:

  • Before you begin, write down any saved navigation points, as you’ll need to re-input them after the update has been installed.
  • Download the software update onto a completely empty USB drive.
  • Turn your vehicle on and keep it on during the entire process.
  • Plug the USB drive into one of the SYNC system’s USB ports.
  • Select the “Menu” option then “SYNC-Settings” and press “OK.”
  • Choose the “Install on SYNC” option and press “OK” then “Yes.”
  • The SYNC system will reboot and begin the installation process. Note that this can take up to 20 minutes, and you need to keep the car running the whole time.
  • At the end of the process, the Ford SYNC will reboot one more time.
  • Check to see which version you’re running by choosing “SYNC-Setting” then “Systems Info.”
  • Once you’re finished, make sure you let Ford know you’ve successfully installed the update by visiting the SYNC update website .
