I was at the service Department today for a check engine light. The one for the air filter sensor. They updated my system N/C, I asked since it was in could they update my Ford Sync and they said it was a $140.00 Charge. He told me to go home let the truck run outside with my WIFI and update. He also told me the truck could idle all day long no worries causes its a diesel. I think he was a new guy first day or something.

I pulled up next to my house in the front yard. I was able to get my truck to pick up the WIFI from my house. It took between 10-20 mins to update. I did not notice anything different. My truck was last updated in March upon delivery.

most times there wont be a difference in how it operates or looks. It'll just be bug fixes, less crashing etc.

Why does the engine have to be running? Why can't you just have the Accessories powered up? If you sat in the truck and read a book you could keep it on when it tries to power down every 5 minutes, couldn't you?
