I tried several times with IE8 and Firefox 9 to download the version checker from syncmyride. Every time, I got a "Download failed " message. I even tried reformatting my USB drive
I'm not sure if you saw my reply in your other post, but if you receive a message that your attempt to upload a confirmation file failed, the message may be due to a network failure. In this case, please try to upload the same confirmation file again, later.
If you receive the message again, the file you are attempting to upload may be incomplete. In this case, please download the SYNC Status Checker and plug your USB drive into your vehicle's USB port. Be sure your vehicle is running and SYNC is ON. Wait a few minutes while SYNC automatically records your present version to the USB drive. Then remove the USB drive and attempt to report the successful install by uploading the confirmation file again.
If you do not see the updated file you attempted to install, the file installation may have not completed. In this case, download the file to your USB drive and upload the file to SYNC. Be sure your vehicle is running and SYNC is ON. Wait until SYNC displays: Installation Complete or INSTALL DONE. Then remove the USB drive and attempt to report the successful install by uploading the confirmation file again.
Otherwise, feel free to PM me your VIN and I'll check it out for you.
Im confused, why take these extra steps when you can simply use that big ole volume knob Ford placed on the control panel? LOL
While that is an option, some customers prefer to download this so when a call or prompt initially comes through, it's at an appropriate tone for them.
