How do I update Ford SYNC 3 with Wi-Fi?

The good news is that updating Ford SYNC 3 over Wi-Fi is extremely easy. You will need to make sure that your vehicle has Wi-Fi capability and that Automatic System Updates are turned on within your SYNC 3. After that, there’s not much to it. When the system connects to your designated Wi-Fi network it will automatically check for updates. If an update is available, your vehicle will begin downloading automatically without you having to do anything more. What’s really cool is that as long as your vehicle is connected to Wi-Fi before you turn it off, the system should continue downloading the update even after your vehicle is no longer running.

The four SYNC versions available include SYNC (or SYNC with MyFord), SYNC with Voice-Activated Navigation, SYNC with MyFord Touch, and SYNC 3. If you are not sure which version of SYNC is in your vehicle you can go to the website and enter your vehicle information on their how to identify your SYNC version page. That page can also help you discern between systems by your displays appearance.
