  1. Visit the SYNC and Navigation Update page.
  2. Enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or sign in to your Ford account and select a vehicle from your garage.
  3. Choose Check for update.
  4. Select the dropdown under SYNC UPDATES
    Note: If your SYNC is up-to-date, you will see a green checkmark and a message stating that an update is not available for your vehicle.
