Re: Update to Sync 3 and Maps

Upgrade done, just as described in the instructions.

I had to use a vfat file system, as the car did not recognise Exfat.

I use Linux, not Windows, on my PC. So I created the file system like this:

# mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb1

Re: Puddle lamp issues

When the car was new, the image was completely crisp and quite impressive. After replacement, it is fairly blurred, and seems pointless. For example the horse's eye is not visible, and the whole outline is quite soft (both sides). If you hold your hand about half way between the mirror and the groun...

Re: Puddle lamp issues

Had both replaced by Ford Northampton. The extra bits of light have gone but the image is still out of focus.

Re: Update to Sync 3 and Maps

Hi Gaz911,

Two weeks after your update, does everything seem to be working okay (voice, nav, audio etc.) ?


Cheers

Re: Update to Sync 3 and Maps

Ford seems to charge for map updates, like other manufacturers. The free download is unlikely to include maps, I guess.

The procedure all looks fine. Volunteers to try it take one step forward...

Re: Update to Sync 3 and Maps

I checked the Ford UK website today and found a link to owner resources which I don't remember being there before, but maybe I missed it. You enter the VIN number and it comes back with the latest update of Sync 3 and (it says) maps but I'm not sure. You download the 2.6gig file and copy it to a US...

Re: Auto dimming mirror does not dim enough?

After a bit of light Googling, it seems that many people, i all kinds of cars, have a problem with auto dimming mirrors. General consensus seems to be: they never dim enough or at the right time, and are best avoided. I put black insulating tape over the front sensor. Now the mirrir switches to maxi...

Re: Fitted Front Sensors?

Sorry about the necropost. I have the front parking sensors fitted to my MY17 GT. Have picture but don't know how to upload images to this site. I can't recommend the sensors unfortunately. When you start the engine in the morniing, it starts beeping if you are anywhere near a wall, although you can...

Auto dimming mirror does not dim enough?

I recently bought a MY17 GT and it has an auto dimming central mirror. When driving at night, it dims automatically, at the same time making headlights of following vehicles look a bit green. The problem is it doesn't dim enough, and night driving becomes quite wearing due to dazzle from other cars....

Re: Mustang 2016 Sync3 and getting it to work optimally

What version of Sync 3 are you running? My MY17 is on version 2.0, build 16074. Version 2.2 is available, but only in the USA (?) Sync 3 voice and audio is great but navigation is a bit of a work in progress, at least on v 2.0. One notable omission. It is not possible to display traffic incident ico...

Re: Vertically challenged, door mirror issue?

I'm 5'7", same problem. The pedals are too far away -> I put the seat forward -> passenger mirror does not angle enough. Just barely usable.

Re: Missed 1st Service by 1 Month, Warranty Implications!!

What is the service interval for a 2016/2017 Mustang GT ? No service booklet with mine, and Google doesn't seem to kow.

On topic, I'm no expert but a slightly late service would not seem an unikely cause of warranty issues. Especially the first service.

Re: Auto gearbox on GT

I test drove a manual. It is hideously over geared for the car, close ratio box it certainly is not. Who on earth needs a sixth gear with such tall gearing? I ordered the auto. That long 6th is getting me 27 - 28 mpg, thanks to a "smart morotway" commute. Combined with the car's ability t...
