THANKS Op!
I downloaded and installed Sync 3.4 with the Nav update this morning on my 19 Explorer. It had 3.0 with 2017 map on it.
Very simple, took 29 minutes to complete. I only had to re-add my phones and redo settings for the Nav favorites.
I like the newer Sync interface.

@4EverFord I hope your 19 Explorer is not under warranty. If it is (even if you have an extended warranty), the APIM is no longer covered due to having unauthorized software in it.

You could have download free 2019 mapping for your vehicle from the ford map website. Your wireless updating will never work now. If there is an issue with the vehicle that involves the APIM and the dealer attempts any diagnostics or software maintenance involving the SYNC APIM it will fail and they will be unable to complete it.

Hopefully you were aware of all this before you did the update.

Does your dual climate and ambient lighting if equipped work correctly via touchscreen?

The Ambient Lighting YES! Works Perfectly Fine with my setup.

The Dual button works but I don’t know if it’s my version of Sync 3.4

But when the Dual Button “On Screen” is ON
the Center Stack is OFF
Same thing applies if the Dual Button on the “Center Stack” is ON
And On Screen is OFF.

It’s not that big of a deal breaker because Sync 3 such a good system compared to the old Sync 2 Apim and Screen.
