Interesting. What's the manufacture date? 10/15 for my 2016.

Also, let me know if the Dealer will actually do this.

I don't trust 3rd-party sources. My download was owner.ford.com also. No workie. I'll consider the dealer but yeah, it's PIA for sure. THere's nothing to say that Ford won't have a problem with 3.1 update or whatever.

Maybe it's just the non-nav I don't recall at this point, but I've read too many horror stories about trying to update the 2016 Non-Nav to 3.0. The nutshell is, there is too little available space or RAM... I think it was RAM. So you'd get a somewhat cryptic error message. There are custom solutions that involve making minor changes to the flash drive content and updating it in stages. There were a number of folks that had reported failures mid-update, resulting with a crippled or disabled system. That would annoy me to no end and don't have the time to deal with such a problem should it arise. After reading all the ins/outs I took the first steps toward updating and it was basically falling in line with one of the horror stories; so decided not to mess with it any further. My 2016 non-nav will stay on 2.2 for the forseeable; since Ford, obviously is only testing it with the latest and greatest hardware. Microsoft, their former partner before they went Open Source, has a crap load of experience about getting stuff to work consistently on a range of hardware. They don't, and it shows.
Long story short, yes, that was the problem solved a while ago with the 2 part auto updates... I have one available through a download link I can email to anyone whoever would like to me at my screen name here at gmail and I can share a download link to do it over USB with instructions. Just need to have basic computer knowledge to format a thumb drive and copy the files on it. If it doesn't work then you know it's a bad APIM from the get-go but it's never bricked anyones system either.

Will this fix my frozen nav screen?

Car says i have no gps and im sitting in a field 50 miles away from where she is. Can't use nav because it doesnt see me at the starting point. Arrow does not move with the car either.
