Sync 3 (non-nav) Retrofit on 2014 FFE with Sync 2 (nav)

Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:40 am

Hi there,

My Sync2 APIM is faulty so I decided to use the opportunity to upgrade to Sync 3. I purchased a Fusion Sync 3 APIM and screen on eBay, along with a media hub (single usb).

I have a few questions for those who have previously conquered this:
    • Do I need to get an adapter for the media hub, or can I splice wires?
    • Do I need a sync 3 GPS antenna, even without nav on the new module? (my current car is nav)
    • Will the dealer reflash for me? Someone at 4dtech told me they will not
    • Is there a ford part for the sync 3 bezel adapter for the media hub?
    • Since I have an extended warranty through ford on the sync2, should I get that replaced first so that I can sell a brand new APIM (Sync 2) kit (for someone that has a smaller screen or broken APIM?)
Appreciate any assistance!

I may have found all of my answers here (finally). It's for Fusion, but should be mostly the same:
