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?

Hi Welcome. Here's a excellent link to answer all your questions about SYNC 3 . Yes, it is now available in current 2016 Ford Models.

Thank you very much, a first class link, I now know a lot more than the UK Ford Dealers who have no information.

The lead time on the new RS Focus in the UK is now being quoted at 10 months plus. I think we will have SYNC 3 by then in the RS. The current ones will be fitted with SYNC 2.

Great look at the system, it seems at that rate they might not go the route some other car makers will which is with brands like Apple and Android since that too will be good for consumers.
