Updating SYNC with new maps and new highway exit numbers
« on: September 17, 2021, 07:31:58 AM »
Hi EPF Members,

I have a 2013 SHO with SYNC with myfordtouch Gen 2.  In my state (Mass) all the exit numbers have changed so I thought updating sync would take care of the changes but they do not update the maps.   Calls and visits to ford.com say I need to buy a new SD card for $149.  (PRODUCT PART NUMBER  GM5T-19H449-AF). 

Question is whether there are other less expensive options that anyone has tried and had success?  I see the same part on amazon for $80. But can't return it if I open the package to install it to see if it works OK. 

Thanks for any info.

I bought mine (A11) on eBay for $30. Looks like A12 (came out Sept. 1st) is $80.

Hi Ta2dResqr,   Just saw your reply.  You are correct, that A12 is the correct card for my SHO. $149 from Ford and $80 on ebay.  However I spoke with a rep who said the latest version does not have the Massachusetts updates, and did not know when Ford would update them.   Other than that I love my 2013 SHO. what year is yours? Thanks again for the reply.
