I don't know about the reflections or any other concerns yet as I have just installed it but it all looks promising.

The Ford SYNC technology was promoted as a new product that provided drivers with the ability to operate Bluetooth -enabled mobile phones and digital media players in their vehicles using voice commandsthe vehicle's steering wheeland radio controls.
SYNC's text message function also has the ability to interpret approximately one hundred shorthand messages, such as " LOL ", and will read "swear words", but does not decipher acronyms that have been considered by the designers to be "obscene".
Certain voice commands, such as "Turn-by-turn directions", "Vehicle Health Report", "Weather" and climate control commands are not available in some countries such as Canada due to compatibility issues. For example, many commands are not available because there is no French equivalent for a command in English.
Ford Canada expects to address these issues in upcoming versions of the software after the issues are worked out in detail, but there does not appear to be a firm release date. SYNC has various mobile-integration capabilities, including "Push to Talk" on the steering wheelwireless transfer of contacts between a mobile phone and the on-board phone book, as well as various advanced calling features, such as caller IDcall waitingconference callinga caller log, a list of contacts, a signal strength icon, and a phone battery charge icon.
Personal ring tones can also be assigned to identify specific callers. SYNC can convert a user's SMS messages to audio and read them out loud to the user through the vehicle's speaker system. This feature is carrier dependent as well as dependent on the device of the user. The feature is supported by several phone operating systems, including the iPhonemost Android models, and Windows Mobile. This feature is also dependent on the phone support Bluetooth Message Access Profile.
Users can browse through music collections by genre, album, artist, and song title using voice commands. With certain devices, SYNC is also capable of playing protected content for example Zune Pass downloadsprovided that usage rights on the device are current.
The Assist application places a direct call to a local emergency operator in the event of a serious accident with an airbag deployment. Before initiating the emergency call, SYNC will provide a second window to allow the driver or passenger to decide whether to cancel the call.
If not manually cancelled within the second window, SYNC will place the emergency call. A pre-recorded message will play when the call is answered, and occupants in the vehicle will then be able to communicate directly with the operator. In Europe this feature is called Emergency Assistence.
It will call in over 40 countries. AppLink allows iPhone and Android -based cellular devices to run approved applications using the car's buttons or voice commands.

Getting the two to work together will be a piece of cake. Ford hopes this new feature will reduce distractions behind the wheel by not having to pick up the smartphone and look at it. Although only Sygic is going to be available initially, Ford says developers can easily modify their smartphone apps to make them compatible with SYNC 3 by simply incorporating the AppLink software available on the official Ford Developer Program site. On a related note, we should remind you Ford is joining forces with Fuji Heavy Industries SubaruMazda, PSA Group, Suzuki, and Toyota to establish a partnership in a bid to improve connectivity between smartphones and infotainment systems.
Short demonstrations of how Sygic is controllable straight from SYNC 3 can be checked out in the videos below. Sygic Car Navigation is first to take advantage of the new capability.

When a smartphone is paired to the vehicle via USB cable, control of the Sygic app is removed from the device. The app is automatically projected to the vehicle touch screen making the navigation app more convenient to manage.
Sygic is the first mobile navigation app to take advantage of Ford AppLink capability to move mobile navigation from the phone screen to the in-vehicle touch screen. Sygic technology is used by million smartphone owners across the globe, and is available in more than countries and about 40 languages.

Since the model year, Ford vehicles that have the Sync 3 with navigation infotainment system have been updatable using Wi-Fi or with a USB drive that has the new code on it.

This update method is "something that no other vehicle, or even some popular smartphones, can do today," Ford says.
Continuing with the wireless theme, one of the big improvements in Sync 4 is cloud connectivity for improved performance, as well as cord-free compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Sync AppLink.
The stronger cloud connection will let drivers have easier conversations with their cars to search for information on restaurants, the nearest electric-vehicle charge station, or sending texts or emails.

New here to the forum after picking up a LeadFoot Raptor a couple weeks ago. I dropped the truck off 2 days ago and have yet to hear an update on what is going on. All i have been told is that the dealership has "opened a case with Ford Technical Assistance" to diagnose the issue.

Also have a F with previous SYNC software that boots up way quicker for comparison Screen will randomly blackout while driving and become unresponsive to any commands but will re-engage eventually within a minute not able to reproduce this, it just happens Put car in reverse the other day, camera was black so put it in park to see how much room i had behind, went back and i could not get the car out of park the shift knob would not engage and a red battery light came on the dash, the engine cut off and screen said "full accessory power active".
Push to start did nothing, the truck was stuck in whatever mode it was in for a minute before finally restarting While i know this is a fluke I fear these tech related issues can linger if the root of the problem isnt taken care of or ever diagnosed at the dealership. If anyone has any insight or knowledge about any of these issues do let me know. Its pretty brutal to buy a brand new truck only to be put in a bone stock F as a loaner for the unforeseen future and envy all the raptors passing by!
