If some one knows how to get the firmware/ software off of the module in an installable form that isn't working for Ford it might be worth a shot, then again it may completely invalidate the warranty on the apim module itself (the brains of the sync system).
i had to take my car into service tomorrow and was thinking of talking to a few of the guys there since they seem pretty apt to telling it how it is and not just going its impossible was just a thought also i wonder if anyone with a 2013 could just pull the file from the syncmyride website like a restore point
