Feature Highlight: SYNC® 4A Enhancements Software Update

Software Update 3.X started in December 2023

What SYNC® 4A Enhancements Do

You’ll notice things look a little different on your vehicle’s SYNC screen. Welcome to SYNC 4A with even more ‘wow’. This new, modern design will make it simple to find your favorite settings and controls, create your personal profile, access Ford software update details, and even set your cabin temp using the audio volume knob.

Yes, you did read that correctly. In vehicles with a volume knob, the knob can now be used to control the cabin temperature, fan speed, and heated seats. To use these new controls, just tap the temperature, fan, or heated-seat screen control once, which will enable control of the feature when turning the volume knob. Then take it for a spin and stop when you reach your comfort zone.
