I successfully updated my SYNC on my 2013 C-MAX Hybrid SE with NON TOUCHSCREEN, NON-SONY "base" SE audio system over the weekend.
Took me two tries, because after downloading the appropriate installation files from my owner page, I used The Unarchiver on my Mac to unzip and create the installation files on a blank USB.
The SYNC update installer on my C-MAX apparently looks for two files (install.lst, and autoinstall.lst) in the root directory of the flash drive, and the rest of the unzipped files MUST BE in a subdirectory named SyncMyRide.
Apparently because I used The Unarchiver (a different product than the one specified on the Ford page) to auto-unzip the files on my Mac running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6, The Unarchiver did not create the folder and dumped everything into the flash drive root directory.
So attempting to install, the SYNC Lady was very insistent that no files were found.
Fixed that by creating the subdirectory folder, dragged the other files into the subdirectory, and quickly it installed (with the car running) flawlessly in about 5 minutes. The SYNC Lady was pleased!
It was late and cold, so I didn't really check to see what's different about SYNC now, except that the release notes mention a 'Reboot SYNC' menu item now exists, and I did see that on the display.
Important note: DO NOT erase the flash drive when you're done installing the update.
FIRST, plug the flash drive back into a computer, reopen the Ford owners page, sign in, and it uploads an update file to their records that the SYNC update was successfully completed. Otherwise you'll get automatically generated nagging little reminders from Ford...
