There a "Vehicle Setting" in the LEFT Info Panel (Left of Speedo) on the Dash. De-select Auto Shut down and it won't shut off while idling.How did you keep it from shutting off after 10 mins or so?
I did mine when driving back from the beach last weekend. I was surprised how long it took.
I interpreted Ray's statement to mean he did the whole update in accessory mode - but it shuts off after a period of inactivity. Certainly less than an hour. Does that setting apply to accessory mode as well?There a "Vehicle Setting" in the LEFT Info Panel (Left of Speedo) on the Dash. De-select Auto Shut down and it won't shut off while idling.
Don't think so, but you can give it a try.I interpreted Ray's statement to mean he did the whole update in accessory mode - but it shuts off after a period of inactivity. Certainly less than an hour. Does that setting apply to accessory mode as well?
Seems kind of stupid to have to idle the truck for an hour plus in order to apply a software update to Sync3.
I downloaded the map file, but unable to open it. I received the following error message "Unable to expand Sync32.zip into Downloads". (Error 79 - Inappropriate file type or format.). I'm using a Mac, so MacOS. Followed the instructions per Ford Sync3 Download Digital Instructions for MacOS. Downloaded the file twice, thinking perhaps the first time it may have been corrupted. My Sync32.zip file is 11.68GB as it shows on instructions. Curious if anyone has experienced this issue.
Thanks for posting this, Josh. Otherwise, I'd not have known. Did mine today during the Ohio State game.Hey Guys,
While looking at the 'about sync' page in my Ranger, I noticed I was on map version 'NA117' and I know a 'NA118' is available. A quick search for 'sync map update' brought me to an official Ford Navigation Map update page here https://syncnavigation.com/ford/home. I put in my Ranger's VIN and Sync ESN and voila - a free map update is available!
You can find your Sync ESN at the bottom of the 'About Sync' page:
Place your order for the 'free download' and grab a 32gb (USB 3.0 fast read/write preferably) thumb drive and format it exFAT. Follow the instructions to create your own update thumb drive and about an hour later you'll be on NA 1 18! Install speed depends on the speeds of the thumb drive so if you have a slow one be prepared to take a drive while this is installing.
The root of your thumb drive should look like this:
And the SyncMyRide folder should look like this:

Update warning 2:
Here's my before:
Good luck and happy updating!
EDIT: This will also work for any other 2018 and newer Fords that are still on '17 maps. Doing the wife's '18 Edge next!
It will continue. (Or rather it SHOULD) That's what mine did. Took 3 trips of 45 minutes to complete the update.Upon starting the download, if you drive say one hour, will the update continue from that point when truck is started again? Or must it be uploaded all at one time?
I'm getting the same error code. (My license is in the correct folder. 128gb exFAT USB 3.0 drive) However, after cross-referencing Josh's listed files with the ones on my USB, it turns out I'm missing some files! 5 files to be exact.I downloaded several times from my email link as I was having difficulties in unzipping the file. Finally got it unzipped and loaded to USB, went to the truck and received error message that is attached. What a fiasco, decided to just break down and spend the $40 and order the USB. Received notice today that it's being shipped, so hopefully it will work this time.
