Get new Ford SYNC 3 features with version 2.2

Borgman Ford is pleased to share that Ford drivers in Grand Rapids and West Michigan can now download the latest version of Ford SYNC 3. This update is available for Ford SYNC 3 vehicles 2016 or newer and comes with full support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These two suites bring the full power of your favorite Apple or Google apps into your Ford vehicle, with an interface that’s similar to your device and optimizations for keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.

The most exciting part of this update is that it’s the first one that may be installed via WiFi connection. If you prefer not to drive over to Borgman or use a flash drive to install software updates, Ford vehicles with WiFi connectivity can set up automatic SYNC 3 updates using their home WiFi network. The process happens completely in the “background” and once it’s set up, you don’t have to do anything else.

Of course, if you need help with your SYNC 3 updates, please feel free to visit us anytime and we will be more than happy to help.

You can read more about the exciting new Ford SYNC 3 update in this excerpt from the Official Ford Media Center:
