I currently have Sync version 3.0 from the factory, but I see where the latest version is 3.3. I’ve been trying to perform an update via WiFi with no success. The date of the last update was 10-3-18, which I believe is the build date. I’ve tried logging onto owner.lincoln.com to attempt a USB update, but it says that there are no updates available. Has anyone been able to update Sync beyond version 3.0?
How many miles is "all over the metro Detroit area? A Bolt has up to 238 miles of range without charging during the work day. If the vehicle doesn't have the range you need, get one that does. Most Teslas get over 300 miles and the Rivians will be up to 400 miles.
That just plain does not work in the US ! I have a friend who has been driving a Prius since shortly after they first came out. While her transportation needs are mostly home to work and back, less than 20 miles each way, there are days she has to travel all over the metro Detroit area. It is going to be many years before enough "superchargers" are installed that she could pull up to one, plug in for an hour or two while in a meeting and then jumping back in and got 50 miles across town at highway speed with the A/C blasting.
Not in my of her lifetime !
Despite what Tesla has already done, I do NOT believe that "connected cars" will arrive that quickly. The car makers can see too many downsides.
As for industrial campuses, they already have fiber. Ford Dearborn is a good example. All engineering facilities in SE MI (with maybe the exception of the Romeo Proving Grounds) have been connect for over 10 years. Fast and proven.
