    I have looked and looked and I see some great info. The only question I have left is it really anywhere from $900 - $2000 for this swap?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I'd not spend that much money for jewelry in a 5-year old truck as Sync 3 in my '17 hasn't impressed me much.

    My '07 lacked it and navigation and traffic remains better on a top-of-dash Garmin GPS receiver than inside the dash. Garmin GPS also interfaces with my iPhone for hands-free, the other handy feature. Not sure what else Sync is supposed to do. I can control the radio and HVAC just fine without a touch screen. :)

    Lol. All fair points. Just would really like to have Android Auto. I mean the thing is garbage anyway, I use my phone for navigation anyway.

    Been running the upgraded/hacked Sync 3.4 the last couple of days and it's much improved from 3.0. Had to run across the county to the airport this morning in what passes for rush hour traffic in Richmond and Sync was displaying a faster route than Garmin. What?! :) Took a risk and followed Sync. Previous Sync route-time estimates have been as much as 10 minutes longer for a 30 minute drive. 2-1/2 years and the Garmin still sits on top of the dash.
