SYNC 3 Version 3.0 (North America)sync3
Posted 09 December 2017 - 11:00 PM
Plugged in my iPhone, tried to play music, wouldn’t work.
Unplugged and replugged, suddenly the Pandora app option appeared. Ok. Tried playing that. Wouldn’t work.
Now I could play songs on my plugged in iphone. Pushing skip on the steering wheel doesn’t skip to next song. It skips 4 songs.
And would someone tell me how to save my current location on the nav as a favorite?

Has anyone who installed this unofficial 3.0 update used Android Auto? Since getting the official update from 2.0 to 2.3 about a month back Android Auto stopped working entirely on my 17 MKZ. Considering trying this 3.0 update if AA is working for others.

I took my 2017 mkz hybrid to the dealer for a power trunk issue...would not close sometimes... and i asked them to check my self upgraded sync 2.3 install. I couldn't get it to report the upgrade to Lincoln. When i got my car back I checked the Sync version and it is now 3.0. They upgraded it without me asking. No charge of course!

This is my case and may not be yours but I suspect there is a bug in Sync3 Build 18025.
Let me explain in version sync3 2.3 an icon was showing up on my navigation screen as android auto and on my galaxy 9 I had android auto, maps and waze all there and when I connected the phone via usb in the car android auto showed up on the navigation screen.
Upgraded today to sync3 build 18025 and nothing changed on my phone but now I am minus android auto on the navigation screen. repaired phone purposely, useless, took landline to phone and also galaxy 9 and first thing they had me do is go to settings and check for android auto setting on the navigation screen, ain't there suggestion go to dealer, HA,HA, HA
Luckily I kept the sync3 2.x versions and backtrack.
More laughs I tried uploading for fun the xml file from today and it confirms the update was successful , however when one goes back to software updates I still see 2.3

Update, I reverted back to EU AU Version 2.2 since going back directly from 18025 to 17109 would not work, once the au version was present I then upgraded to us version sync3 2.3 17109 and android auto appeared on navigation screen and
can use Google maps or Waze. No changes were done to phone, indicating build 18025 has a bug.
My account still shows 10Feb 2.3 confirmed even though earlier tonight it showed that I was successful in uploading sync3 3.0 build 18025
I even loaded my phone with xml file and uploaded that way, and said it was successful for sync3 3.0 , but still shows 10Feb 2.3, so much for "FORD"
So it's the next day, not that I care I am back to sync3 2.3 and got that working again, but I checked my account and it still cannot confirm the sync3 3.0 update and I tried a few times via laptop and it told me that the upload was successful and also tried via cellphone and also told me the upload was successful but neither method was successful as you can see. Don't waste your time going to the dealer to try to get it confirmed, useless.
