Hi, I currently have sync 3 version 3 and maps version 7, i have been onto ford website for updates and have downloaded the update to sync, put it in the car got the message that the update has worked ok but according to ford website it should have created a file that i need to input before i can get the map upgrade, but no file has been generated, Have i done something wrong ?

You can do it on mac but you have to select manual method and if you're not very confident its not easy. You can install windows on a mac Ive done it in the past, the method is built in to Mac operating system, its a bit clunky and unreliable...........you can buy a program called “parallels” to put windows on the mac which apparently is great.
I use my old windows PC for my sync downloads

Connect laptop via ethernet cable for a stable connection and download time is dependent on your internet speed

I use VMWare but as you say it's clunky.

Um what is it you guys are downloading that needs Windows? I just went to Update SYNC to get sync 3.4 and the maps using a Mac. Is there anything more?

Generally speaking it’s much easier to use windows, you can use a Mac but it’s unstable... better off loading up a windows emulator, it will take up to 2 hours using Ethernet (preferred) WiFi is unstable. Fords servers are notoriously slow so bear that in mind. Alternatively depending on the age of your vehicle and how you feel about going outside of the Original method you can use Cyanlabs, this using the same files your trying to download from Fords but uses a scripted application which has been created by Cyanlabs ... it will enable you to use the very latest updates that Ford (depending on age) will not offer... you cannot go this route if your vehicle is 2020

What version maps did you get and what full version of sync have you got, I bet its out of date

20136 is one of the flawed builds, it has USB playback issues and also has the pointless Climate tab on the screen, I say pointless because it does not and never will work correctly.
