Software update allows all 2016 Ford cars to use Android Auto

Ford first announced in early 2016 that it would support Android Auto for its 2017 model cars equipped with SYNC 3, and that its 2016 cars with the same system would support it via a software update planned for later that year.

If you own one of these cars, and if you own an device that has Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher, you can get grab this update today.

Ford is releasing a software update to its model-year 2016 vehicles on Friday, May 19 so that the entire fleet will be able to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, The Verge says. "With over-the-air updates, we can deliver new features to customers in the background while they continue using their vehicles".

We've asked Ford if this applies to the United Kingdom as well as the U.S. and we'll update when we know more. Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles and a Wi-Fi network can set up their vehicle to receive the update automatically. Alternatively, you can download the update by visiting the Ford Owner portal on your PC and install it on to a USB drive.

This is the first time Ford will offer an infotainment update over Wi-Fi. CarPlay and Android Auto are huge upgrades vs. most in-car software, offering navigation and entertainment options that follow you from your phone to your vehicle. By enabling Automatic System Updates in the car's settings and connecting to a home Wi-Fi network, the auto can automatically download and install the update. And SYNC 3 is created to perform the update as long as Wi-Fi is connected prior to the vehicle turning off, therefore there is no need to keep the vehicle running for the update to take place.
