I’m at 1.4 and it says I’m fully up to date. Any tricks to get it to pull the 1.7? I use Google maps on CarPlay a lot more than the built in nav

Only Apple Maps supports the directions on the dash. It's not very impressive either.

For those who are not getting timely updates, have you scheduled them on Ford Pass or do you use the automatic update feature. I use the auto update and my truck connects to the internet in the garage. I think that helps. Just my two cents.

I’m also noticing the reset to channel 1 on Sirius as well as phone connectivity issues.

Have other XLT 302a owners received the PowerUp 1.7 or 2.1 OTA updates? Just curious mostly, I haven’t been notified yet.
I did a few days ago. Little changes here and there. Haven't played with the Sync 4 to exactly what is changed. I do now they moved the icons around in some of the menus.

I have them updates scheduled for Thursday, but the power up 2.1.0 came through on Monday or Tuesday this week.

Well, I have had it since the end of Aug and just got my first update- 1.6.0

Lord I hope it helps with some of the bugs in the phone connection and radio

I received the 1.7.1 update a few weeks ago according to the dash version indication and also received a notification via FordPass at that time. Navigation screen doesn’t work for me with Apple Maps, no idea why. I received a message on FordPass on Thursday saying that the 1.7.1 update had failed and they would try again. This is really confusing!

Android Auto navigation has displayed the "next turn" information for the driver's cluster since I got the truck in May. So I'm guessing the pictures above that this update is Ford catching up to the same features with Car Play?
I really have no complaints except it seems like after these updates my FordPass no longer let's me turn on Generator mode from the phone even with a Bluetooth connection. In fact it still displays "cellular connection" in the app, which is probably the reason the extended functionality of FordPass isn't available.

That was perhaps my favorite FordPass function of all since on a cold morning I didn't have to go to the truck to power up the generator.

I got my truck in July and have yet to receive an update. If I go to the "Update" screen in the truck, it says that I am "up-to-date". I have auto-update turned on, and the truck displays the WiFi connection in the top right of the screen... still no update.

The FordPass app is... basically worthless. It says that I have Auto-Update turned off, and just gives me the directions on how to turn it on. Even though I have verified that it's on! (Yes.. I have turned it off, then back on; rebooted the Sync4 system; etc.)

I just received Power-Up 1.6 OTA on 11/22/21. Well behind others, and really not sure what the update actually does, as I do not see anything new.

My build is below:

Build date 7/27/21
XLT Sport 4x4
302 High package
5.0L w/3.73
360 camera with tow tech package.

100% stock
Last night my truck received the PowerUp 1.7.1 OTA update. Everything went smoothly. Suppose waiting patiently is key with the OTA updates. LOL.

From the release notes, and what other members have mentioned, looks like the 1.7.1 OTA update adds direction arrows in the dash when using CarPlay navigation. My truck has SiriusXM 360L and supposedly there's user interface improvements with that system too.
