Sync Update 5.8 11/2016

Postby ITBland - November 16th, 2016, 8:39 pm

My 2010 FEH (No Nav, just basic Sync) now has Song/Album/Audio Book titles in the top display when using Bluetooth! At LAST! :) (Prior to this, only USB would show titles.)

I tried to do the update, but every time I would plug the USB in and start the download it wouldn't recognize it.

Use an empty USB drive. The root of the drive should show:
install.lst
autoinstall.lst
SyncMyRide
(folder)
The SyncMyRide folder should have about 10 files in it, all named with Ford part numbers.
Open the install.lst file with Notepad (or any text editor) and it should look like:
;+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++!
; !
; USB Update Application !
; !
; USB Installation !
; !
; Microsoft Windows Automotive !
; !
;+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++!

[Windows Mobile For Automotive 5.8]
Item1 = E1BT-14D546-PA
Open1 = SyncMyRide\E1BT-14D546-PA.cab
Item2 = 8L2T-14D546-AF
Open2 = SyncMyRide\8L2T-14D546-AF.cab]

(Note: There will be 8-10 "Items" listed.)

Usually the problem is putting the files in the wrong location on the USB drive, or formatting the USB as something other than FAT (or FAT32). Sometimes the install.lst file will have multiple "[Windows Mobile For Automotive 5.8]" lines, if it does, delete any duplicates.
HTH!
