Mine is a 2010 and there isn't any update for that year, as we only have SYNC with or without NAV.
The updates are for the MY FORD TOUCH and SYNC together in 2011 and up.
AR3T-14D544-AEGen1 - V3.1 _________ last release date 4/2/2011
(This new software release, based on customer feedback, will improve Ford's 911 Assist and Vehicle Health Report features. Now you can disable the '911 Assist is set to Off' speech reminder. If you choose to turn it off, a line of text reminding you that 911 Assist is disabled will continue to be shown on the radio display. In addition to the 911 Assist enhancement, the Auto Vehicle Health Report feature will now have a default setting of 'OFF'. Simply switch to 'ON' if you wish this report to be automatically generated.
In addition, there will also be improvements to the Traffic, Directions, and Information feature. Your SYNC system will now keep you advised of its status when communicating with other services that provide information for our services. When SYNC needs to send or receive data about traffic, direction or information, the radio will display a message indicating 'Sending' or 'Receiving' so the user is aware that SYNC is working. Some, not all, radios may display the message 'Prs&Hld PHONE to end' when communicating a service.
Also contained in this release are improvements to USB and Bluetooth features and phone and media device support.
Please Read: This update will take up to 8 minutes to complete. Approximately 60 seconds after you begin the installation, you will receive an Installation Complete message. DO NOT REMOVE YOUR USB DRIVE OR TURN OFF YOUR VEHICLE. You must wait an additional 4-8 minutes until you hear a second Installation Complete message before you can remove your thumb drive. During this interval, while the update is loading, SYNC will not recognize your mobile phone or media device. Be sure to have your vehicle engine running throughout the entire installation process. After installing the Traffic, Directions and Information update, please bring your USB drive back to your computer to report the successful installation. NOTE: You will need to pair your mobile phone again with SYNC and re-download your contacts from your mobile phonebook. We also recommend that before re-pairing your mobile phone, you delete the previous Bluetooth-SYNC connection that was on your mobile phone.)

All it does is update the map, dosen't upadte the NAV itself, if that's what your thinking
