Update done. And got the notification in FordPass. Son sent a video of his test drive after he was done. Can’t wait to try it myself. And I still hadn’t gotten any update after 2.3.0. So I was stuck there.

It just happens when you turn on cruise.
Did 2.5.1 yesterday evening and it must have done another one this afternoon.



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

Thanks BoilerTimmay! But can't you still have plain old cruise control, feet off the pedals hands on the wheel?

You can - basically it works the same as before you just have the option to take your hands off the wheel on certain sections of road. It will say hands free and the dash lights up differently (it actually isn’t currently hands free in that photo). There is nothing from keeping you leaving your hands on the wheel when it is hands free and assisting the steering yourself (I find myself correcting every so often or still helping in certain spots because it isn’t perfect).

I do think the algorithm is a bit different from the old lane centering. To me it feels a bit more “natural” (will arc a bit more for curves etc vs just locked on center) but could be placebo. It does sometime get a bit lost on the highway for me which is when I put hands on - it sometimes will be doing well then randomly drift a bit and spending some time going back and forth to correct. It def needs a bit of work but after using it regularly I’m gaining more confidence in it and know the situations where I won’t trust it.

Great answer, thanks. 🍻

Today the final 2.5.3 installed with Sync Version 22034 Rev: 364 and now I have bed camera at speed. Long road to get here after replacing my APIM in late February and afterwards all my OTA updates started working.

Now just to get the driveshaft insulation recall completed.

after having the dealer, aka my son , Install the updates via fdrs, some of the customizations that were done with FORScan gets over written. Items that I see have been reverted so far are the temps in the dash board for oil/trans and Glare Free lights in the IPMA and the dash (But the lights are still working like it is setup for Glare Free). I will go through the rest of the setting this weekend.

items that didn’t get updated are Bambi lights, Global Windows, Mirror setting to Lincoln, and warning buzzers.

so. If you have any customizations, you may have to reset them after the power ups are applied.
One item that he was able to fix was the trailer module recall, which I was told wasn’t released. The under shield recall he couldn’t do because the De-energize of the hybrid battery didn’t work, both the manual and the fdrs de-energize failed.

Yes. Turn off lane assist on your steering wheel. It will function just like normal cc with no steering input. Or, you could just leave your hand on the wheel while in BC mode like @gtotco suggested.
