Car configuration discussions and experience sharing
Navigation is built into the module. Speed limit display should be there on all 2017 explorers, I hope. Any one owns a 2017 explorer and know if it has the speed limit displayed in the cluster when it is displayed in the 8 inch display?
How did you reprogram the apim?thayilt wrote: ↑Sat May 27, 2017 7:28 amThanks a lot guys for the advise. I went and got a used 2017 APIM & touch screen and programmed it to my 2011 explorer. Everything works fine except I could nor get it to update to the later software so that I can have carplay and android auto. I tried to update through WiFi. Anybody has any suggestions or ideas please. The other problem I have is that despite setting it to show full screen map, it shows only half screen and the other half is blank, most of the time. It will show turn by turn listing when I set the sync to that. Thirdly the main screen doesn't show the outside temperature on top middle next to the clock. Please help
Getting one from the junkyard also and curious on how to do this. Not sure where or which line item to select to enter my vin number. No other module will be replaced other than Sync 3 screen, APIM and USB media hub.
I know this is an old thread but I was wondering if anyone knew how to get the original install files to program the APIM as if it were brand new, I have had to replace the module multiple times now because it keeps dying after the latest update and the "new" one I just bought off of ebay has the newest update on it and is showing the same signs that the other two did before dying. I'm beginning to suspect that its the software killing the module.
