LINCOLN ENHANCE SOFTWARE UPDATES

Effortless enhancements, over the air. Keep your Lincoln on the cutting edge with Lincoln Enhance software updates. Wirelessly receive updates for your vehicles' features, capability, and convenience - all to improve your ownership experience.

How To Wirelessly Connect My Phone To Lincoln SYNC® 4

1. CONNECT TO WI-FI

Once you connect to your preferred private network, your vehicle will automatically reconnect whenever it's in range. Some updates might only be able to download to your vehicle via Wi-Fi, so for the most seamless experience, keep Wi-Fi on and connected wherever available.

2. SET A RECURRING SCHEDULE

While some updates complete seamlessly in the background, other updates will require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off for a period of time. Setting a schedule (we suggest overnight or during work hours) ensures you won't need your vehicle during these types of updates. And don't worry about forgetting - you'll be reminded of your schedule each time these updates are ready for installation, and you can adjust as needed.
