Yeah have another post New ACM new APIM 22 service calls many problems from dropped called to the spinning wheel, 1needing to reboot system to eliminate phonebook issues. Love Synch have had on four other Fords with not a problem. This ones got demons. Had APIM replaced last week three days later same symptoms Ford has stepped up with 48 month maintenance contract and extended Warranty but still can't fix it. Thinking about aftermarket Headunit seeing if anybody had ever tried one.

If you have Sync 3 with 8" screen, I don't think anyone offers parts to upgrade those at this time, it can be done with the smaller 4.2" screen

A couple companies do and still keep most features including Back up camera, voice calling Apple/Android features about 450.00 don't know if it would cure problems? Kenwood, several others read today Ford is evolving from Synch to different system guess that answers a lot of questions.

Ahh okay.
If you have the small 4 inch screen, you can swap out the stock head unit for an aftermarket one. If you have the 8 inch head unit, later this year, PAC will have a kit for that one as well but right now, nothing is available.
