No problems with the “super highway” method.

Yes Ross but @DGFocus states he’s got a 2020 car, so not that simple
I know I was answering
Is there anyone who has gone down the “alternative route” and lost the ability to use the system. I ask as I recall wasn’t there a mention that this could happen. Just wondered.

What people don't seem to get, even though I've posted it I don't know how many times is, the files are the files. They come from the same server. It is purely the method used to download and prepare the USB stick, that is far superior with the alternative method.

Once the files are on the USB, it's no different. There is exactly the same chance of something going wrong when using the Ford method, yet some still prefer to use the clunky sometimes it will and most of the time it probably won't way to get an older update. I actually find it baffling, even if you have a warranty, the only thing that would suffer would be if the actual Sync unit itself were to fail & the chances of that are slim to none.

Edit: Actually forgot to mention, how many people do we get on here complaining that the Ford update hasn't worked and how many out of the ones that have done the alternative method have had any issues? I already know the answer.

It can be recovered and, as many members have said, it works, not like that system Ford use

There's 1 thing for sure, Ford aren't going to help you solve it. There is a way, send me a PM if you want some info.
Hello :cool: I`ve got that same prob, and the same answer from Ford.... Contact your local dealer... :mad:
Is there any chance you could share your "secret solution" for this annoying MEM-ERR01 ?

Thanx
K😁

Hi kwagga65.
Just to complicate matters, after more research a guy has posted on a ford Facebook group having the same issue with this update. His car spent 2 days at the dealership who couldn’t resolve it and referred the problem to ford technical dept.The guy then received a phone call & email to tell him the 8.2 GB update offered on the website is an error & our sync systems have the latest updates already installed which is why updates fail. The website is due to be corrected apparently 😳

can someone please tell me the difference between sync 3.0 which my 2017 is stuck at I believe, and sync 3.4 which if I can get to the dark side I also believe I could upgrade to?
thanks.
