NEW SYNC 3 Emulator Version 1.1

Posted on Thursday, June 8, 2017 by Ford Dev Team

Dear developer community,

We are happy to announce the SYNC3 Emulator version 1.1. We received a lot of feedback from you and used that to improve the Emulator in all areas, including the highly anticipated ability to use Video Streaming. This will allow you to try out your navigation apps and stream the moving map directly to the SYNC3 Emulator.

Further improvements include adding RPCs that interact with SYNC directly, such as initiating a phone call on SYNC or sending a destination to the embedded navigation.

The complete changelog is below, in the meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions please reach out to us via the #ford channel in the SmartDeviceLink slack (, our dev forums right here on or via email to

Added RPCs:

  • PerformAudioPassThru
  • EndAudioPassThru
  • DialNumber
  • UpdateTurnList
  • SendLocation
  • AlertManeuver
  • ShowConstantTBT


Vehicle Data Changes:

  • Added the ability to run 6 prerecorded route simulations.


Misc. Changes:

  • SDL Core version updated to 4.2
  • Updated to run on Ubuntu 16.04
