Sync 3 2.2 Update

I noticed today that the Sync 3 2.2 update was available for download in the Lincoln owner site. I am loading it onto a USB drive now and will try and get it on tonight. Supposedly Android Auto works, but carplay requires a USB hub hardware update. I did order a new Hub from Tasca Parts which arrives tomorrow or friday. Hopefully I will be using car play by the end of the week.

Updated via USB this morning. Took about 20 min to download from Lincoln owner site to PC and unzipping of files
Site states about 30 min required to upload to SYNC, it took at least 20

After upload SYNC states upload will complete upon next engine start and phone will need to be relinked.
System did not update to 2.2 from 1.0 upon engine restart. Second time engine was started SYNC did update and clearly indicates 2.2 is running. Phone did not have to be relinked.

Only change I see is addition of Android tile. Will update USB hub soon to see if link to iPhone initiates Apple Car Play functions.
Otherwise no appearance or operational change has been experienced. Will see what may happen as we continue to use.

Noticed some minor tweeks in this version, mainly graphics and a new voice for the Nav. I did get the updated USB hub installed and have tried car play, one thing I don't like is that you can't use the factory NAV while car play is enabled.

Update is for the 2016. Your 2017 should have Carplay and all other current updates from the factory.

My 16 just auto updated to Sync 2.2 the other day

Everything seems to be functioning, I did notice a change in some of the graphics in Climate Control.

I did not see a CarPlay App available either.

What is the USB Upgrade I have seen posted and What does it cost?

Thanks

2017 MKC has Sync 3 v2.0 out of the factory, at least that's what I have. I am hoping this fixes the Traffic List issue, but when I check for update it tells me that I have the latest version and I am too afraid to use the USB update method. Hopefully it will be pushed to 2017s soon.

If your MKC has a modem in it, it should auto update as long as auto update is turned on. With a modem you can also connect it to your home wifi too.

If it does not auto update just bring it to the dealer and have them do it, it should be free for a 17.
