New Kit Upgrades Ford F-150, Others From MyFord Touch to Sync 3

Modernise your ride

  • Ditch that out-dated infotainment

  • Update uses all OEM Ford components


Nothing makes a vehicle feel older much more quickly than an outdated infotainment system. From old graphics to slow processors to not offering support for your newer device, there’s not much nice to say about any last-gen system. Fortunately, if you have an older Ford, there’s a new kit that lets you fix that without buying a new truck.

If your Ford came with MyFord Touch (aka Sync 2), then there’s a chance that you’re no longer happy with the system that came in your Ford F-150, Ford Mustang, or one of just about every Ford model in the early 2010s. A company called 4DTech is offering a kit that lets you upgrade to Sync 3 using all Ford factory components.

The kit (hat tip to Ford Authority) comes with a new 8.0-inch touchscreen to give you more updated graphics. It also comes with everything else you need for the upgrade including a replacement media hub, wiring adaptor, Sync 3 software, and GPS antenna for the nav system.

While sold by the aftermarket, the kit uses Ford parts and is completely plug and play. That means you keep systems that are integrated into the unit like heated seats and climate controls, and you’ll gain the ability to connect your phone using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Each model that offers a kit was one that came with Sync 2 in early model years and then swapped to Sync 3 with a refresh down the road, making the upgrade easier. It won’t give you Ford’s most current infotainment software, but it should give you a world of difference when it comes to the experience, without spending a lot of cash to do it.
