Ford update brings Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to its 2016 fleet
If your 2016 Ford car has Wi-Fi hardware, you can connect the vehicle to your home Wi-Fi network and download the SYNC 3 update for Android Auto to your car. This should pretty exciting news for Ford owners who now won't need to buy a brand new auto to get a major infotainment upgrade. As long as a user's Sync 3 system is running version 2.2, the update can be installed one of two different ways.
As for the Wi-Fi update feature, you will have to navigate to the settings menu and activate the Automatic System Updates option. With a simplified interface, large touch targets, Google voice search and easy-to-use voice controls, Android Auto is created to minimize distraction while on the road.
For CarPlay, users will still also need to upgrade their vehicle's USB hub to make this work (which will also incur a dealer visit and a cost), but for those on Android, all that's required is a simple software installation. If an update is available, the system automatically downloads the update in the background over a period of time without any customer interaction. If it does not have Wi-Fi hardware, you can go to Ford's website on your PC and download the update to a USB Flash drive, and then plug in that drive in your vehicle to install the software. The company is offering its customers several avenues to install the update in their Fords.
Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later models running at least iOS 7.1. Ford says the update will work for as long as Wi-Fi is connected prior to the vehicle turning off, adding that you don't actually have to keep the auto running to install the new features.
