    Apple Carplay USB hub

    Hi All,

    I recently updated our 2016 XLT Explorer to mysync 3.0 via USB. Everything went fine with the system update, and I even uploaded the xml file back to Ford and it confirmed the update was successful. However, looking at images and video of the update, my home screen looks nothing like the 3.0 screens I see in the images or videos. My home screen looks like the older versions of mysync. Additionally, I'm trying to get carplay going on the unit, and in some videos I'm seeing that I need to get a different usb hub that allows the phone to communicate to the system when an iphone is connected. I've searched online and have found what I think to be the correct hub, but I'm wondering if I can replace the hub in the center console under the armrest, vs. switching out the hub under the head unit? Thanks!

    You can’t just do an update and have it to Apple car play. You have to change out the screen, apim, and the usb hub, then download the new 3.3 update for it to work properly.
