It came in pre-programmed and ready to go. Took the old one off installed the new one, paired my phone and I was done.
After searching all over for the best price, I purchased this APIM for my 2017 ford explorer. It's a SUPER easy install. Seriously, the hardest part is just removing the panels so you can access the screws that hold this in place. Once you do that, it's about three screws the remove your current APIM from your screen and then a couple cables. The entire process took me maybe 15 minutes and that's with my kids trying to help (and lose a few screws in the process :) ).
It’s does worked perfect
The upgrade arrived on time. It was comprehensive, including a USB backup. The tools needed to remove the panel, with all plugs Keyed ready to plug and play.
I tried another off the shelf solution but found our CD player had to be removed. And the backup camera interface didn’t have a light controller so at night it was useless.
Now everything is back to OEM and working better than ever. We especially enjoy the 2023 HD quality touchscreen.
Easy to install, fired right up and works great so far, so good.
Took an hour to change out. Powered up, went through the menu setup and works perfectly. Preprogrammed for your car. Basically plug and play.
My wife was wanting a new vehicle because the navigation on the Sync 2 was outdated and didn’t have CarPlay. We upgraded to the Sync 3 conversion and not only does she now have CarPlay and updated navigation but the touch screen is more responsive. This upgrade has allowed us to keep our current vehicle for at least another year. I also received the item before the expected delivery which was a nice surprise. The installation guide is helpful but not perfect. The GPS antenna had a mounting plate so I spent a fair bit of time trying to find the proper mounting location and ultimately just placed it under the dash loose. I also opted for the wireless CarPlay dongle and it seems to be working well. It gives us the option to connect to either device when we are both in the vehicle and saves me having to search for my cord while driving. Another benefit to the dongle is I can charge my phone with a car charger rather than a usb for a quicker charge and still be connected to CarPlay. Overall very satisfied and if I didn’t try exploring for the antenna I would’ve been able to do the conversion in approximately 2 hours. Would recommend to friends or family to extend the life of their vehicle.
Plug and play, just as advertised. Very happy to not have to drop $1100 at the dealership for the same thing.
Just what was expected
Super fast shipping, and the system is great. Install was pretty easy, and there are tons of videos to help. Only issue I have is I haven't figured out the wireless android auto yet, but I'm not worried about that anyway.
For anyone else who didn't know, if you have an android phone, connect it via USB first. I connected via Bluetooth first, and couldn't get android auto to open. Removed the phone, and connected using USB, and it popped up like it was supposed to.
Excellent support during the installation. Very happy with the purchase.
Product it exactly as described. Easy install. Works Perfectly. Customer support is amazing. They answered all my questions prior to purchasing. I had a lot of questions so i could know exactly what I was getting and they took the time to help me understand. Also, I can't believe how fast it arrived. Not only was it fast, it was arrived a day early. I had an issue with getting carplay to work. I chatted up tech support on the cat option on website. They discovered I need to replace the usb port in arm rest console. They are shipping it out quickly to me. Again AMAZING. I Highly recommend this product and Company.
When I came upon this website, I wasn't too sure, but then noticed it had a lot of positive comments. So i took a chance.
Shipping was quick and then it was just a plug and play. Everything works perfectly.
Great deal comparing other competitors out there. Seller did follow up all along installation and Fordscan programming process. Now, the bezel and the module will not shipped separately which the vendor mentioned and provided all tracking numbers. I’ll recommend this for all mustang lover out there.
