So they will not be able to just upgrade to MFT/NAV by taking in an Non-MFT/NAV car...

But if i'm putting this together right in my head, if you "bootleg" someone's VIN that has the MFT/NAV, along with part number, and serial numbers, you could order the part from the ford parts counter at any dealership and buy the unit outright...

The question now, is there any thing that needs to be done to the vehicle using the IDS system to make an original non-MFT/NAV equipped vehicle work with the "enabled" APIM? or can you just bolt it in, connect the harness and BAM! it works?

if this is the case, and if they ever get MFT/NAV problems solved to where it's stable.. this may be something I may do in the future.. right now im planning full aftermarket for lack of any other options... hopefullly by the time i get around to doing my stereo, a bootlegged MFT/NAV ordering system will be possible.
