    Decided to add heat to the center console armrest like I did on my Fusion. Cost less than $20 in parts. Took a motorcycle seat heating element, a mosfet relay, triggered by the heated seats.

    Had Torrie at Unleashed soften the downshift from 3rd down and the brake jerkiness went away. Going to ask for another revision for 5th down. Makes the braking so much smoother.

    What steps did you do to do the upgrade?

    Any odd things happen during the upgrade? Did you just have the ignition on the whole time or did you have it running? And how long did it take total? Oh, and do you have the climate option at the bottom of the screen after updating?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I'm really interested in this upgrade and don't want to mess anything up.

    Thanks much!

    Everything was as the instructions indicated. Just ignition on but I had the battery tender plugged in. The truck was less than 30 mins because of the larger file with the nav. My Fusion was less than 20 mins. Everything is there that was there before including the climate. You just download file for USB1, choose the file for USB 2 depending on your configuration, turn on the ign, plug in 1, remove and plug in 2 when it tells you, wait till 2 says it's done, unplug and it's pretty much done.

    I may have some work to do this weekend - I also have the bumper strips for the doors I have to install..... If I do I will post my results as well.

    Thank you!

    I did this upgrade today and it went very smooth however I've lost the climate option in the Sync screen. I did some googling to see if I could find how to restore it but so far nothing I've done has gotten it to re-display. Anyone have any ideas on how to restore this?

    The 3.4 Sync does seem to be a little faster than the 3.3 version.

    I was able to get my seat heaters to display on the home screen, though.

    That's weird. I still have climate on mine. You might have to play with forscan to get it back.

    I've tried, but I can't find the magic value to bring it back.

    Can you tell me what value you have for the following APIM values:

    7D0-01-01
    7D0-01-02

    From what I've read one of those is supposed to control it, but I've not had any luck. One posting was very sure that this turned it off and on:

    7D0-01-02 xxxx x2xx xxxx = changing the second value in the second set to a 2 - but then he said you might have to try different numbers for different vehicles. I tried 0-F (hex) and none of them made it appear.

    I'll have to look when I get a chance. Go through the easy change menu and see if any of that works. Or try reinstalling the 19101 again, download 19274 again and reinstall. It's possible the file wasn't complete or corrupted. If the higher one still doesn't have it you might just have to stick with 19101.
