    Updating SYNC3 Using a USB Drive
    Updates to your SYNC3 system can be done by using a USB flash drive. Follow these steps to update SYNC3 via USB.

    On your personal computer, log into your Ford Owner account at Owner.Ford.com. If you have not logged in before, you will need to register.
    Click on “SYNC & Vehicle Features” at the top of the page.
    Then click “Check for Software Update.”
    Scroll down to view any available updates for your vehicle.
    Click “Download SYNC Update.”
    Accept the licensing agreement and download the file onto your computer.
    Plug the empty USB drive into your computer. It is important to be sure the USB drive is not password protected and can hold at least 32 GB of data.
    Locate the file on your computer and unzip the file.
    Save the file to your USB drive.
    Make sure the ignition switch in your Ford vehicle is set to “On” and the vehicle is in park.
    Plug the drive containing the update into the vehicle’s USB port.
    Installation of the update will automatically begin.
    Take the USB drive back to your computer to confirm the update.
    Log into your owner account and click “Confirm Update.”
    Insert the USB into the computer and follow the prompts.
    Your SYNC3 infotainment system will now be updated. If you have any questions, visit Owner.Ford.com.

    Unfortunately you can't do free update for the car I have. Only for cars newer than 2017 (2018 and later), and mine is Ford Escape 2017. For 2017 they are asking for US$109 for the maps only.

    EDIT: I just noticed you mentioned Sync3. Again, I already responded to another member here in this same thread. I don't need Sync3, I already have the latest version installed. Sync3 does not update Navigation (Maps), maps are completely separate download and it's not free for cars older than 2018. See this thread, post by member called "tmcolegr", somewhere throughout the mid of the page:

    Updating the maps does not update your Sync 3 software. That is a separate process. The most current maps available today are v1.18 and Ford even managed to screw that up on 2019 F150s that were originally delivered with v1.17 - even after a successful upgrade to v1.18, Sync 3 still displays v1.17. Way to go Ford !!

    Thank you but I don't need to update my Sync3, it's already at the latest version, updated few days ago. Navigation (maps) though are completely separate update, and it does not have anything to do with Sync3 update. Maps need to be updated using separate download.
