How do I check for SYNC® updates?

To see if there is an update available for your SYNC system:

  1. Visit the SYNC and Navigation Updates page.
  2. Enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select Check for update.
  3. Select the SYNC UPDATE AVAILABLE drop-down. Note: If your SYNC system is up-to-date, you will see a green checkmark and a message stating that a SYNC update is not available on your vehicle. 
  4. Chose your preferred installation method and follow the instructions. 

If you encounter any issues while downloading the SYNC software update, please contact your local Ford Dealer.
