Create Interrogator Log USB



This utility does not change your SYNC operating system in any way, its an official ford tool used for gathering information on your SYNC unit.

This function is pretty sweet and probably one of the best new features of Syn3 Updater 2.0. This allows you to prepare a USB drive like mentioned previously on our forum by F150 Chief, simply select a USB drive and press the "Prepare Drive" button.

Once done insert the USB drive in to your car, wait for installation complete and remove the USB drive.

Reinsert the USB drive in to your computer and click the second button "Open Interrogator Log", select the newly created XML file located on your USB drive, called Sync_XXXXXXXX_VIN.xml. 

Once you have selected this file, it will automatically be parsed and you should see it's output to the right, before this you may be asked if you want to update your "Current SYNC Version", this can help prevent potential wrong versions entered in your settings.

On the right after it has parsed the file you will see the following information

  • VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  • SYNC APP Version
  • APIM Model
  • APIM Type (Nav/Non-Nav)
  • APIM Size (8GB/16GB/32GB/64GB)
  • APIM Free Space
  • The log date

If you scroll down further you will find detailed partition information as shown in the example below


If you scroll even further down you will see your APIM AsBuilt information


This is Ford / UCDS formatted so it may look slightly different to ForScan, luckily we thought of this. Click "View Detailed AsBuilt" and you will be taken to a webpage to view your decoded AsBuilt showing exactly what values you have set.
