Ask Ford

Since AppLink was launched on SYNC Gen1, does that mean it will be available for older models that have SYNC installed.


We are examining ways to get the AppLink upgrade to older vehicles. This takes a lot of engineering from the team so stay tuned.

Luckychef28 I makes no sense at all. I have a 2011 Focus SES and i can't understand why we cannot upgrade to AppLink. Isn't the Focus a step up from the Fiesta? How is one Gen1 system with nav THAT different from another?

Rob E Yes, all Ford Vehicles with sync will sync with iPad. It's pretty much just a bigger iPod to Sync

CT This doesn't make any technical sense. The hardware units running Gen1 in many older vehicles (even brand new ones - such as the 2012 Escape!) are the same as those in the newer systems with AppLink. PLEASE tell me this is not a marketing issue.. That would not reflect well on Ford. I know the 2013 Escape is coming out right now, but are you telling me my 2012 is already put out to pasture as far as supporting SYNC?
