Receiving upgrades over Wi-Fi
Ford has had SYNC updates since 2009, however that is actually the first time that the organization is offering an upgrade via Wi-Fi. In Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles using Automatic System Updates turned on in SYNC 3, the machine will periodically connect to a client's designated Wi-Fi system to check for upgrades. If an upgrade is available, the system automatically downloads the upgrade in the desktop over a time period with no customer interaction. And SYNC 3 was made to execute the upgrade so long as Wi-Fi is attached before the automobile turning away, therefore there's not any need to maintain the vehicle running for the upgrade to happen.
