What are the connectivity options for 2012-2015 FFEs? The dealer was able to order a 4G modem upgrade kit for my 2012, but I can't find any info on installing it in a pre-2016 MY car. Fordpass might suck, but it's better than nothing.
It can definitely be done, even DIY'd if the dealer refuses to do so.
There's a lot of discussion and research that was done on the C-Max at the forum thread linked below. Electrically it is the same as the Focus/Focus EV. Many owners (myself included with a '13, which wasn't in Ford's approved upgrade list) have been able to do this successfully.

The caveat being that if you DIY, the compatible TCU/modem models on the used market are hard to find. And dealers may not want to sell the official upgrade part to you outside of the sanctioned upgrade process.
