My Ford Owner's site says my car is up to date. 

I ran the version checker in my car.

I uploaded the .xml file.  (Note: It is in the folder on the USB stick)

My Ford Owner's site still says my car is up to date but the status date is now today's date.

 

Either the update is not for my 2013 car or the person that set up the file transfer system needs to retake programming 101.

;(

Is the 3.8 update only for MFT with Nav?

 

I still don't show a 3.8 update available and the web page says my car is up to date.

The site shows no update for my 2013 MKZh, but shows there is an update for my 2015 Escape (that I no longer own) with a build date of 5/15. This seems pretty hit and miss.

Thanks, she knew I was gonna ask, and preempted me... ;)

There still seems to be a problem though, maybe a second look would help.

BTW, mine still shows 3.6.2 as the latest update too.  But my car's Sync never would update via USB, had to have the Dealer do it every time.

You are exacrly right. I downloaded the 3.8.2 from the Ford Owner site that was still active for my 2015 Escape, eventhough I don't own it anymore. I tried to update my 13 MKZh and it wouldn't take. I took a look at IraF's post and downloaded his dropbox file for the sync update and found that the owner site download has omitted 2 files. I used IraF's download and it worked perfectly on my MKZh. Mission accomplised....thanks to IraF.

 

The computer genius at Ford needs to go back to school.

Yeah, but it seems that for an awful lot of people, me included - it doesn't. Would be nice if she came back...

The site says my 2013 is up-to-date with version Gen2 - V3.6.2. For my wife's 2014, it's on Gen2 - V3.7.11, and the site indicates that an update, Gen2 - V3.8, is available. I downloaded the update and compared the files to those that IraF posted - same names, same file sizes. Based on hermans' and IraF's success, I'm now installing the update on my 2013.... My wife is out in her car, so I'll probably update that tomorrow.

 

Btw, Ford - crappy site and version control you have, but I love the car and the MPGs!!! ;)

I submitted my information via a private message and got a reply that someone will escalate the problem and get back to me in 2-3 business days.  I expect the answer to be that the update is not for 2013 cars and the announcement was in error.  The next business day is next Tuesday.

Hey everyone, 

 

We are currently looking in to this; if you do not have V3.8 available, please send a PM with your VIN so that I can dig deeper. 

 

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. :)

Since it states, "includes all the improvements from previous updates", I think this also provides the 3.7 updates, which us 2013 owners did not get. Since my update history does not include 3.7, I went to the update history page for my wife's 2014, and it shows that 3.7.11 included:

I'm assuming that by going from 3.6.2 to 3.8, you also get the 3.7.11 updates, since my screen now includes a mute button on the navigation screen when a route has been entered. This now means that I can mute the nav voice with one touch, vice the two touches it previously took... :drop:  Overall, wholly disappointed in these updates. A few things have been fixed or improved, but no real feature have been added. I guess I was expecting something revolutionary, like Applink for MFT. Evidently, I set the bar too high.

That's nice. I didn't take note of that, but I would definitely prefer ETA. I guess that will save me another touch! ;)
