Hi all,

 

I've updated SYNC3 from v2.2 to 3.0.3 last week on my Edge with no issues last week. I've used the https://www.ford.co....update#/status/ webpage by providing my VIN number and downlooading the update that was offered.

 

Out of interest, I wanted to see if there are any new updates available last night, and a separate button now has appeared for updating navigation maps (7.3 GB approx). Anyone else has noticed this?

Problem is though, whenever I press the button to prepare the download, the "Please wait.." screen appears and download does not start. I've been waiting for over 2 hours last night and had to cancel in the end as doesn't seem to work properly

Literally just tried this having seen this post and it's started to download a 20.6gb file for the Mrs' Kuga.

Will be interesting to see what version it ends up being.

295bhp & 450nm of fun, but can still give 38mpg  :driving:

Mark,

 

What browser are you trying to download with? Was the "Please wait..." showing for a long time before it started? I just can't get mine to start downloading, tried on different computers, browsers etc.

 

I know the F7 maps are around 21GB in size, so could be the latest one... but then again, mine shows 7.3GB before download..

I'm using chrome, it went through almost instantly so didn't really see a "please wait" pop up.

Put the VIN in and hit enter, takes about 5 seconds to change the page and say there is an update.

 

Click "prepare maps download" and "Please wait" pops up for 1-2seconds then you get the "Download Software" window pop up and you can then click "Accept and Download software".

 

An hour later I have a 22GB zip file.

The Please wait page never goes away for me.... don't think this is anything to do with my PC, I think it is a s crew up from Ford, as 7.3GB for maps update doesn't sound right anyway.... Will see, maybe another Edge owner can try and see...

Cheers Mark. I have found a post on another website with links and instructions on how to upgrade to F7 with 2 USB sticks. All upgraded to F7 successfully.
