A lot of news about SYNC 3 today:


"In North America, Ford is making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available on all 2017 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3, starting with the all-new Ford Escape. Owners of 2016 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3 will have an opportunity to upgrade later in the year."
https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2016/01/04/sync-apple-carplay-android-auto.html



Another one:
Ford Enhances SYNC AppLink for App Developers with New Capabilities and Tools for In-Car Experience Innovation
•App developers will now be able to leverage Ford’s all-new SYNC® 3 technology to enhance the in-car user experience
•Ford now offers access to real-time vehicle information enabling creation of innovative app experiences
•New tools available for developers include a SYNC 3 technology development kit and vehicle data simulator software development kit – allowing testing and development without access to a vehicle

And one more:
Toyota has chosen a technology developed by Ford to allow consumers to access smartphone apps and features via their dashboard, eschewing similar technology offered by Apple and Google.
Ford's SmartDeviceLink (SDL) – an open source software – allows drivers to access smartphone apps via the dashboard touch screen or even voice control. Toyota will be adopting the feature for upcoming vehicles, Ford said in a statement ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Monday.

Hope this update will be effective on '13 MFT focus. Ford Adding Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, More to Sync 3 Infotainment via Car and Driver.com

Ford Adding Apple CarPlay, Android Auto to Sync 3 Infotainment ? News ? Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
Not going to be on Sync 2 as the hardware doesn't support the QNX based Sync 3 software. It also seems like they are possibly going to be orphaning Sync 2, though perhaps not given they just launched it in Europe.

I'm in the UK, does it matter which LangPack I choose?

Is there any way of finding out which langpack is currently installed?

Cheers btw, your links should allow me to update :D

It does matter, you have to make sure you are installing a pack with British English in it otherwise your voice commands for navigation will not work.
It is not so important for you though since you are in GB and British English is in every pack, so it might be just your preference what other languages you want to have
