  1. I installed the Sync 3.8 update in my 2015 Lincoln MKZ over the weekend. I downloaded the update files from the Lincoln Owner portal to a USB stick and ran the Sync update in the car. It went smoothly and took about 20 minutes. I had a bit of a tough time reporting back to Lincoln that the update was successful.... it took a couple of tries, but it finally went through and now shows on my Lincoln Owner page. This update seems to install an entire new Sync system because it goes through several reboots during the update process. After the update, I had to reset a number of settings (ambient lighting color, panel brightness, navigation preferences, etc.) and re-pair my phone. I also had to re-enable the feature that allows texts to be shown and read on the car's screen. I also had to re-load all the extra Sync backgrounds I had uploaded. But after all that, the Siri function works great. Just hold down the Voice button on the steering wheel for about 3 seconds and the Siri voice comes on. From there, you can tell her to compose texts, send emails, add events or reminders to your calendar, change songs, check the weather, get you a beer (well, not that one but you get the idea)... :) I have my iPhone 5S set so that Siri only gives voice feedback when connected to a hands-free device (such as my MKZ). Using Siri on the phone itself gives no voice feedback, which I prefer since it speeds things up. You can access this on your iPhone settings via General --> Siri --> Voice Feedback, then choose "Hands Free Only". So, when I use the Eyes Free system in my car, I get the voice feedback through the car's speakers. I also have the Siri voice set to a British female because, well, she sounds sexy.... :) Anyone else install this Sync update?
