Does anyone have a copy of Sync3 v2.2 or newer software/firmware for their MKZ that I can download?
The lincoln site does not show v2.2 available for my 2016 mkz
I currently have v2.0

Is this version for Lincoln (i.e. Lincoln background image on the Sync3 display)?
The reason I ask, is because the folder name appears to be the same as the Ford.
And why is the non-nav file larger than the nav version? Are your links backwards?

OK. Great I will try it.
I was hoping that v2.22 would solve a few bugs in v2.0 like how the system crashes and reboots about once a month, the check for software updates is never successful, the speed-sensitive volume always resets back to OFF, and a bunch of other mistakes in their software.
Thanks again for the download link.

Yes I saw your post about the cover art issue after I posted here.
I do have a USB stick with MP3's, cover art, and playlists.
I thought there was a setting somewhere in the SYNC3 that allows you to override the gracenotes cover art?
Another software issue I have (related to the USB MP3) is using a voice command to play a "playlist".
It doesn't recognize "playlist" the first time you say "Play Playlist Aerosmith". It always responds with a: "Play Aerosmith the Album, Artist, or Playlist", then you say "playlist" again. Very strange.
I'm just surprised at how slow they are to bring out updates.

Im new to all this, but.... I just bought a 2016 with Sync 2.0, will these files take me to 3.0? I notice everyone has a Z less that 2017. I was under the impression Sync 3 was a hardware swap not simply a software update...............please enlighten me and point me to more info............. thanks guys

Had no problem downloading Sync 2.3 version (Used USB) and installing it..The problem I am having is sending the confirmation back to Ford.. The file that they need to confirm is there but will not upload.. I have tried it on 2 different computers.. Anyone else having this problem ?

I downloaded to a USB thumb drive, but I decided to see if the automatic check for update feature world work from the car itself, and it did.
When it did the automatic Wi-Fi download, it was quick. It must download only software that needs an update. So I gather this was a very small update.
It took a day for the Lincoln owner site to update itself and record the software update automatically.
If your connected to Wi-Fi and have the car check for updates, it should update your online account in a day.

I have auto-updates turned on and the car is connected to WiFi, but it's sitting at version 2.2. Is there a way to force an update over WiFi?
I still have 2.0 in my Continental and also have the auto updates on and have WiFi. I don't understand why it never updates. According to the message on the screen, it checked for updates on 11/27/2017 but didn't update.
