Starting today, anyone who owns one of Ford's 2016 vehicles with the SYNC 3 infotainment system can get a software update that will enable support for both Android Auto as well as its main rival, Apple's Carplay. Customers will be able to update their own cars using a USB drive or a Wi-Fi connection, or they can take their cars into the dealership to have the update performed.
"Our SYNC 3 software platform was created to be easy to update so we can get our customers the latest and greatest features, functionally and security enhancements", said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services.
Android, Android Auto, Google Maps and Google Play are trademarks of Google Inc. CarPlay and Android Auto are huge upgrades vs. most in-car software, offering navigation and entertainment options that follow you from your phone to your vehicle.
Ford first announced in early 2016 that it would support Android Auto for its 2017 model cars equipped with SYNC 3, and that its 2016 cars with the same system would support it via a software update planned for later that year.

This is also Ford's first software update of such scale, and shows the work of some 400 new software engineers that Ford has recently hired. Users can control Apple CarPlay through the in-vehicle display or via Siri voice control. The USB install method is also faster, but the Wi-Fi update option is the start of the company's efforts to really increase its OTA update program, which will be used for security improvements as well as infotainment bumps. If an update is available, the system automatically downloads the update in the background over a period of time without any customer interaction.
