    Ford t charge for Apple Car Play upgrade on SYNC 3 2016 vehicles

    Just saw this today on my periodic check of the owner website. They have some new info I hadn't seen before regarding Car Play on 2016 vehicles.

    Owners of 2016 model year Ford vehicles with SYNC 3 are required to perform a software upgrade and purchase a hardware upgrade to use Apple CarPlay. Please check back on the Ford Owner site this summer for more information about these upgrades.


    I asked many times about Car Play and was told it was going to be a free software upgrade. I am a little miffed about having to pay for a hardware upgrade to use this.

    Wtf... I thought one of the main advertised benefits of Sync 3 was over the air (WiFi) updates and the elimination of bringing your car into the dealer.

    That is strange. It doesn't have that listed for Android Auto.

    Android Auto is available on 2017 model year Ford vehicles with compatible SYNC 3. Owners of 2016 model year Ford vehicles with SYNC 3 are required to perform a software upgrade to use Android Auto. Please check back on the Ford Owner site this summer for more information about this upgrade.
    Hopefully it will end up being the same for CarPlay as well

    CarPlay updates have not gone out yet so that shouldn't be related and you don't have SYNC 3 in your ST1 so you won't get CarPlay functionality anyway unfortunately.

    No mention of paying for Android Auto... lets hope it stays that way.

    What 'extra hardware' would possibly be needed for Apple vs Android though?

    Sadly this is what they said in January "In North America, Ford is making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available on all 2017 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3, starting with the all-new Ford Escape. Owners of 2016 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3 will have an opportunity to upgrade later in the year."

    I took it as a hopefully individual that it would be free.... but of course not. I'd be willing to pay maybe $50... but knowing companies it will likely be well into the 100s. Ford's phone system doesn't even compare to Apple Car Play either and that's the sad part - They are going to charge for software that isn't their own because they realize theirs is no good.

    What's odd is Android Auto doesn't require the hardware upgrade.

    Android is more an Open Source platform. Apple is not.

    I'm still mad they charge $150 for navigation updates. (not upgrades, but Updates!)

    That's pretty typical in my history of in dash updates. They are never cheap. Pioneer wanted 175 for my wife's 700BT
