SYNC 4 Updates

Dialing Up Your In-Vehicle Experience

The latest Ford Power-Up software update includes enhancements to the design of SYNC®* itself. It offers new features and refinements based on your feedback.

A Bigger Experience

We've increased the interaction area within the display for the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto interfaces, as well as other features like navigation.

Added Dial Functionality

More than just volume — the dial on your SYNC display can now be used for climate controls too, so you can adjust temperature, fan speed and, when equipped, heated seats.

Simple Refinements

We've updated the status bar at the top of the screen, implementing new, clear icons that make it easier to read. Settings and controls have been consolidated and reordered so you can more easily access drive modes and Ford Power-Up software update details — all to help provide enhanced visibility and usability. We've even improved access to gaming, video streaming and third-party Wi-Fi networks.

Further Improvements

  • Personal Profile: Now easily accessible from the status bar
  • Simple Update Scheduling: View and accept prescheduled update times from the convenience of your in-vehicle screen
  • Drive Modes: Quickly interact with, and easily change, your onscreen drive mode
  • In Development: Set a recurring schedule for Ford Power-Up software updates through the FordPass®** App
