Latest SYNC Version?

I have a 2012 Focus SEL. If I did the SYNC version check correctly, the website is telling me that I have CM5T-14D544-AC version Gen1 - V3.1.1.C

The SyncMyRide website doesn't list anything under "Updates available for your vehicle are listed below."

How do I know for sure that I have the latest version? Seems to me like there should've been some sort of update by now...

Also, I know you have to have the engine running to do the updates, but can I do it while driving? Or does it have to be in Park?

If you're talking about the same update I had done this past winter, then my MFT started displaying the outside temperature on the MFT. Plus people could actually hear me on the Bluetooth while driving on noisy GA interstates (rough surface).

I don't have the MFT... just SYNC. I can't seem to get it to update with the USB flash drive. The initial application installs successfully, but I wait, and wait, and wait to get the second "Installation Successful" message as the instructions indicate, but nothing. Ideas?

I also have a 2012 SEL with MyFord w/o Touch. Unfortunately, you have the latest version (as do I).

This is my issue too. I have owned the car since late 2011 and no updates. Can that be right?

There were no updates for Sync with MyFord made publicly available although there were newer versions (higher revision numbers) installed on the later build 2012 as well as the 2013 models. The 2013 sync w/myford models allegedly also gained applink compatibility where as the 12 does not have this for sync with myford.

Myford touch still does not have applink compatibility either for any model year.

So even if I take it to a dealer they would not be able to upgrade my software? It would be nice to be able to display texts.

FWIW I just had mine updated with TSB 13-9-22 and my version changed to DG1T-14D544-AE , GEN1-4.2.1.F from DG1T-14D544-AC ,GEN1-4.1.2.F
2013 SE 6 spk, 5sp, job 1 car.
My hope for the update is to stop my USB flash drive from defaulting back to line in. I haven't use much of the sync voice stuff yet.

My version of sync still says 4.1.2. Ford's website says that's the latest version. How did you get 4.2.1?

Fords Sync site only lists the last version the factory/dealer installed & also claims it to be the latest
