Upgrading from Sync 2 to Sync 3 on a 2016 Explorer question

Postby onedownfiveup » Mon Apr 16, 2018 8:17 pm

I'm reading about how to swap out Sync2 for Sync3. It looks like I need the screen, APIM module (Nav or Non Nav), cable to link both together, GPS antenna, and USB module.

I see that there are sites offering to program your APIM module for you for $75 or to help. From what I can tell it requires adding a VIN. What all is involved in programming the APIM for the switch? Anyone know? I've done some changes using Forscan on Sync2 so I feel like with some guidance on the programming for Sync3 I can modify my own Sync 3 APIM.
TIA

Edit: Now it’s my understanding the Vin of my vehicle is needed to retrieve AsBuilt APIM data to the Sync 3APIM to make sure everything I have works
