I received my Lightning in February and it doesn't look like i received it with the latest Sync version.. I had been hoping I would receive an OTA update (just like any other device), but I'm now wondering if I should pester my dealer to do the update. I don't get the sense they know much about EVs.I think this update just updates the software updater.
What you’re referring to is the actual SYNC 4a software and that was deployed by my dealer back at the beginning of Jan. So no - the update will not change those things with 4.2.1 but it may make it easier and more reliable for them to push the SYNC 5a update to your vehicle.
I'm guessing there's an issue with Ford's OTA software...I made an appointment (for May!) to have the dealer force an update.I'm in the same boat - I got the 4.2.1 update this morning after sitting with the 4.1.1 update for more than a month. Other than the stated 'update process improvements', I still don't have the UI updates. I'm guessing I need 4.2.2 for that? Is that a thing?
