gahh. I don't see where I can edit/delete an older post.
I guess you're right--no edit button anymore. I see you downloaded the file, though. Hope it helps.
And--talk about forum 'wackiness'; bbf2530 shows as a Junior Member having 1458 posts and joined 10/2011. I am a Senior Member with 894 posts and joined 1/2010. Go figure.
Well, here it is 6 hours later and my 'Edit' button is still active. I'll check tomorrow.
bbf2530, FWIW, I'm only half grey, but my almost 75 years ought to entitle me to the 'Senior Member' status.
You will NEVER get Apple CarPlay unless you buy a newer car! Sync 1 & 2 do not have it--Period! I THINK 3 does wired--4 does wireless. Don't quote me though.
Apple CarPlay can be done with Sync 2, but not Sync 1 (pre-2013). I might pull the trigger on one of these at some point:

2016 Sync 3 requires a firmware update AND a new USB port install for CarPlay to work.Hi RG. Thanks for the links. There are aftermarket add-ons, dongles and gizmos that will allow you to have Apple CarPlay with SYNC 2/MyLincoln Touch w/SYNC. A vehicle owner could also buy an aftermarket stereo that has intergrated Apple CarPlay/Android Auto..
However, just to avoid confusion for others, we were discussing SYNC integrated Apple CarPlay and being able to use CarPlay natively with SYNC itself, right out of the box, no add-ons. That is only available with SYNC 3+.
Hope that avoids confusion for others. Good luck.
