I received confirmation that my car's version of myford 3.1.1 is the latest version for my car. Since it is clear that there are newer versions of the myford os out in later production models of the ff, is it true that myford equipped cars will be the equivalent of "Android"?: There will be multiple versions of the os released without any plans to make older build date cars updated with the latest os?

Sync VersionGen1 - V4.1.2.F
I haven't had it in for service, so that's the way it was right from the dealer.

I have not verified this in the vehicle itself - I seem to remember running across version numbers somewhere in the menu system. But presumably when you submit a vehicle health report (I did the other day) it sends the version information too(?)
That's correct, recyclebin, running a Vehicle Health Report will report the latest software. Otherwise, you can run the SYNC Status Checker to confirm which version is installed:

Our engineers are always working on updates, valmundo, but I can't speculate on timing or availability. As updates are released, announcements will be made here:

I ran a VHR on my 2013 Focus SE and I don't see any reference to the SYNC version. Syncmyride says I have V4.1.2.F but I don't know where that info comes from. I don't like to do the status checker since it requires me to install Java and I stay clear of that mess as far as possible. Is V4.1.2F the current version for my model?

Here's what I get on my report:

I also have a 2012 Ford Focus with the Sync system but not the touch screen. My boyfriend just got a 2013 F-150 and it has the Sync also without the touch screen and his has a lot more features. I don't understand why they can't update our systems to the same one that the 2013s have :/

I have Sync VersionGen1 - V3.1.4.C on my SE (no mft). I complained to ford rep about mic being useless at hi-way speeds, and he told me about new version and to go to dealer for flash. It has helped alot, making calls is now possible at high speed.

Any idea what version you originally had?

There *is* an updated version of SYNC with MyFord for those with v3.1.1, which is what I originally had. I took my Focus in last week and one of my complaints was that people couldn't hear me on the in-car speakerphone. The dealer flashed my car's audio system with SYNC "Gen1 - 3.1.6.C" firmware. It has really helped with voice conversations, and has mostly resolved my complaints about the big steps in the sound system's volume control. I'm much happier with the system now.

Digging up a slightly older thread here...is there anyway to do this without taking it to the dealer?
