It doesn't matter what the article says, seeing how the software has been available since sometime after July 2012 for all 2013 production but no updates have been made available via it appears that the cars are being left for dead with no clue as to when there will be an update if anything.

Ford has a history of leaving prior year models out of the new software updates when it comes to sync G1 so far, and history looks to be repeating again so far.

If they wanted us to have access to applink they should have made it availble before pushing for app developers to work with this platform.

The article I've read said something about a million 2013+ models, and nothing about earlier models recieving the applink software.
