SYNC3 - Upgrade to Navigation or Upgrade from MFT/MLT (SYNC2) for Certain Vehicles

NEW - I now will assist with programming of SYNC3 upgrades to match your vehicle and options.  If you need help programming a SYNC3 unit to your vehicle I can assist whether you have hardware to program it yourself or you can send it to me.  This is for data programming of the APIM only.  No other services.

UPGRADING ORIGINALLY EQUIPPED NON-NAV SYNC3 VEHICLES TO NAV:

If you wish to upgrade your existing SYNC3 system to support OEM navigation the APIM only must be replaced.  This  will come programmed for your vehicle.  Please visit the store for current SYNC3 NAV APIM stock and descriptions


Upgrading SYNC 4" to SYNC3:

I do not sell kits/parts specific to the 4" upgrade for upgrading SYNC 4" screens to SYNC3 8 screens (except screen brackets - see store).  The parts required to do this include all the MFT to SYNC3 parts requirements listed below plus acquiring the correct HVAC/radio control bezel, additional USB media hub wiring, screen brackets, addition of wiring, re-wiring of vehicle harnesses, and advanced programming of vehicle systems.
