Regardless, often times silence actually says a lot more than words.

Seems there is similar sentiment going on at the Explorer forum as well (last few posts):
As far as differences in the APIM (the brains of the sync module) for these cars I am not that familiar. How the engine and transmission work, or where to find things in the manual sure, but not the electronics as well. At least not at the minute detail to say why one was running sync g1 v3.1.1-3.1.4 or 3.2.1 or 4.0.2 which was the version that people say their 2013 Focus is running with appllink.

IVT has been mum on the subject since the last time they claimed that they were working on it.

There is no need to work on it if the hardware is the same, its just software, but they don't even release the incremental software revisions for sync with myford that go into production which seems to indicate it was a different hardware revision behind it, even if that's not the case.
