Alright!! I will definitely be upgrading to this. I'm not upgrading my iPhone to iOS 11 yet though.. I'm going to wait a few months to see if the update slows the phone down or not. Especially since I'm not upgrading to that iPhone X. It's way too expensive! It's kinda unexpected that they pushed out an update so soon. But glad that Ford is keeping up with the times!

Apple "updates" your phone until it doesn't work and you HAVE to buy their new one. It's been proven that they do this, yet people keep buying them. THe iphone x is filled with tech androids had years ago. It's the biggest rip off around.

Google innovates. Apple refines, and the "Church of Steve Jobs" rejoices with each "new" feature.

The only reason I went back to iPhone is because I work in an industry that has adopted it as a standard.

Yeah my wife has one and their cameras are hard to beat. I'm also typing this on a macbook pro. I just hate the amount of influence/insight apple and google have on my life.

Stop letting big Co. influencing you and your family!

(drives a ford...)
I've stopped about 80% of that type of behavior, but I need a laptop that is going to last, and I need a phone/internet provider that will be reliable too. They have me by the short hairs. I know there are other business' but at a certain point they are all a little "evil" once they get big enough.

Weird deal for me,

Current rev 2.2 -
Load thumb drive into either usb port(one below head unit or the one in the center console - both behave the same way) on my 16 st3 -
Start car -
Wait a minute -
Get the updating software message -
Get the update complete message(this takes a while to complete btw) - remove thumb drive and new version will be installed on next car start(cant remember the exact verbiage)
I remove the thumb drive -
power the car off -
start the car, go and check the sync version and I'm still at 2.2 - I get the xml file you are supposed to upload to fords site when the install completes as well so not sure what the heck is up....

Tried a master reset of my head unit - same deal
Tried re-formatting the thumb drive (extFAT as stated on fords site) - same deal
changing USB ports I put the thumb drive in - same deal.

I'm thinking maybe for what ever reason I may need to try another thumb drive possibly....... but am open to other suggestions (please read ALL of the above before making them though) :)

My iPhone 7 is on iOS 11 at the moment and I haven’t had any issues with CarPlay yet. Does this update add the “ST Performance “ splash screen?

Been having trouble getting this to install on my '16 ST3. Keep getting a version error message once the car reads the USB stick. I've double and triple checked that I have the nav version, but keep getting the same thing. Unfortunately the mirror you posted seems to be the only one that works anymore, the other two mirrors posted in the Mustang6G thread no longer work, so I can't download from another location to see if that fixes the issue.
