Just talked to my son. He had a 21 PB in yesterday for the upgrade. Started at 7:30am. Finished at 7:30pm. But all worked as it should. Mine is scheduled for Monday. 12 hours. That’s a long update.

Complete failure on Ford for marketing and hyping up a feature their engineers barely had a framework ready. 12 hours is 24 hours or more of me not having a truck. On top of the many visits to correct random errors. I'm on pace to bring it to the dealer every few months for something new that pops up.

They need to poach some engineers from Tesla quick if they want to catch up.

One week after 2.4.5 I got notification that 2.5.1 is installing tonight.

Any way to force these to download? I’m usually a week apart. I would like to speed them up.

Posted on Thursday I got 2.5.1 and today I got 2.5.2. I noticed when I looked at FordPass to clear my notifications for Secure Alert. Also had the BlueCruise notification stating it was activated. Even though it was 9:30 pm EST I had to go for a test drive, and it works quite well.

Here is a short video and when I pan over to the Synce screen you can see the blinking of the eye sensor.



















It showed an activation message on the dash when I turned onto the entrance ramp of the highway, "BlueCruise on. Watch the road. Be prepared to resume control." It also turned off when the right lane turned into an exit lane.

It does know if you are looking at the dash/sync area or left out the window, down by your crotch where you might have a phone, or right towards the passenger seat. It gave me a warning to watch the road if I looked those directions longer than 5 second. However, it didn't warn anything if you hold the phone on the airbag.

Sync is still Version: 220028 Rev: 358.

I have read that 2.5.3 updates Sync with BlueCruise selections.

Note: engine light is a malfunctioning exhaust sensor that is on order to be replaced when dealer completes my transmission insulation recall.

How do you activate BlueCruise after it gets installed at the dealer? How do you turn it on and off?

First make sure it's "Adaptive Cruise Control with Hands Free" is activated under I think the Features tab on Sync (could be another menu). Then while driving activate cruise control and then turn on lane centering. As long as you are on a BC enabled road it should kick on in a few seconds.
