One of the worst things about owning a modern vehicle is that inevitably, within a few years, it’ll be sorely outdated in terms of technology. Things are moving quickly in that realm these days, and infotainment screens and the software they run are changing all the time. Thus, those that own a Ford vehicle built just a few years ago might be stuck with MyFord Touch (SYNC 2), but luckily, companies like 4DTech offer SYNC 2 to SYNC 3 upgrade kits for many of them.
Currently, FoMoCo SYNC 2 to SYNC 3 upgrade kits from 4DTech are available for the Ford F-150, Ford Super Duty, C-Max, Ford Edge, Ford Escape, Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer, Ford Fiesta, Ford Flex, Ford Focus, Ford Fusion, Ford Mustang, Taurus, Ford Transit, Transit Connect, Lincoln MKC, MKS, Lincoln MKT, MKX, MKZ, and Lincoln Navigator.
The nice thing about these upgrade kits is that they consist of genuine Ford parts, unlike a lot of other aftermarket screen upgrades out there. They also come pre-programmed with an 8-inch touchscreen, screen to module cable, GPS antenna for navigation, a replacement media hub and wiring adaptor, and the latest SYNC 3 software.
These kits are truly plug and play with no cutting or splicing required, and allow the owner to keep all of their factory features like heated seats, backup cameras, and climate controls, to name a few. Plus, they’ll gain Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, as well as voice-activated navigation as an optional upgrade.
These are nice additions for those driving vehicles that were originally equipped with SYNC 2, yet switched to the much more modern SYNC 3 later on, especially when we consider the fact that these are OEM parts. It may not be the latest and greatest infotainment experience out there, but it’s light years beyond what originally came in these vehicles.
