What are Lincoln Enhance Software Updates*?

Lincoln Enhance Software Updates help ensure your SYNC®** 4-equipped vehicle receives the latest software and feature updates. These improvements include:

  • SYNC updates.
  • Feature upgrades.
  • Security enhancements.
  • System fixes.

How it Works

  • Lincoln Enhance Software Updates are downloaded and installed using an external Wi‑Fi, such as your home's Wi-Fi, or through Lincoln Connect®*** (modem).
    Note: For faster updates, connect your vehicle to an external Wi-Fi.
  • Some updates will happen seamlessly in the background while you are driving.
  • Non-drivable updates require your vehicle to be turned off for a short period of time. You can schedule the update to occur when you do not need to drive your vehicle.
    Note: The door locks will remain as they were (locked or unlocked) when the update starts. Personal belongings should be removed from your vehicle or secured.
