Coming very soon to a SUV near you...

- Drawing/notes app, calculator, tic-tac-toe, remote setup of profile preferences.
- Navigation enhancements
- Carplay navigation in the instrument cluster (with buzzing at no extra charge).
- Radio icon change
- Bug fixes
- Release notes describing these changes, purely for entertainment value
I have 1.7.1 installed now. Carplay navigation in the instrument cluster does not work with Google maps via CarPlay, but it does with Apple Maps. Disappointing since I don’t use Apple Maps.

has anyone other that GT owners received this vaporware?
I haven't been able to find anything that shows me what version I have on the GT. The update screen in the car and in the app just tell me that I'm on the most recent version. Even though we have BlueCruise and front trunk unlock there's things that I don't have such as Securialert. So I have no idea if we are on different update paths as the non-GT. I have looked all over the forums for confirmation of the GT firmware and being a bit new here maybe I missed it somewhere, but I haven't been able to confirm a firmware version for the GTs.

Nope. I use CarPlay daily and it’s so inconsistent- Sync will just randomly refuse to go back to CarPlay if I look at drive modes, HVAC, anything. I heard the fix is 1.7.1 and been waiting 2 months. @Ford Motor Company seems to want me to have a terrible customer experience.

What is really pathetic is that I am actually interested in seeing the drawing app and tic-tac-toe...
Ford has managed to make the rest of the software so bad that these stupid features seem like an upgrade!
That's the main purpose of this app, this is to show you that you had an update :). But I can't believe that they allowed programmer time to code that instead of working on the bugs or at least something useful

I agree completely. Our 2021 Mach E doesnt even tell you what the notification is. It wasnt until I was given a 2021 Bronco Big Bend to drive while the dealer look at the odd notification issue that saw the flash on the screen when it happened (no flash in the Mach E just notification). Dealer blames the phone that has worked fine on many other Ford Sync versions.
Frustrating!!

This isn't something that was programmed recently. They just pushed a version of Sync that now includes it. Its been a sync 4 app for a while.
