Ford SYNC 3 Information

I was hoping that one of you could give us some information on the new SYNC 3 system, it is being in fitted UK vehicles from the summer.

The RS Focus in the UK is currently only available with the old SYNC 2 system. From what I have read on the Web Ford is fitting SYNC 3 to US vehicles now and it's a far better interface.

Is it worth waiting for SYNC 3 to be fitted to UK RS Focus or just going with the older SYNC 2?

Thanks in advance for your help. ☺

Hi. Welcome. Here's a great article on the differences and why Sync 3 is better. Not much on upgrading. But it looks like just a soft ware upgrade.

Also, since this article the Apple phone has been integrated with Sync 3. Here's the link to that upgrade.

Yeah it sure beats the typical person that says "use the search feature"

Sometimes people are not all that familiar with certain keywords (which help in searching) and overall where to find things.

Has anyone in the US got to use SYNC 3 in real life? Is it fitted to current new Fords in the States yet?

That's a great walk through of the sync 3 system! Probably need to get navigation if it may not be possible to add it in later on.
