Canada: SYNC TDI & Sirius Travel Link

If I do or don't get Nav in Canada...which (if either) of these features work in Canada? Does Canada have different providers of this info? If I don't get Nav, do I not get turn by turn directions from SYNC?

Good question justy,

I'm not sure if the SYNC TDI features work in Canada. Here's the SYNC TDI website for a start:

In Canada, SYNC can't provide turn-by-turn instructions by itself.. you need to get the nav package. We also don't get traffic and weather info. On the plus side, the "winter package" is included by default in the higher trims.

I've noticed our prices on average are about $2k to $3k higher than our American brothers (not even taking into consideration our usually higher taxes). Their maintenance plans and extended warranties also seem to be cheaper by about $500. Considering our dollar has been at par (and higher) for a few years, I'm not quite sure what explains the difference. Probably just our government taking another cut as the car is shipped across the border.

So do we have to subscribe to the Sirius Travel Link to use the Nav in Canada? If Sync doesn't give turn by turn directions in Canada then I might get Nav...

No need to subscribe to Sirius Travel Link to use Nav in Canada. You just need the SD card included in the Ford Nav package. I don't think Sirius travel link is available in Canada any more.

Ok good to know.

Just Ford Sync = no directions at all
With Nav = free access to maps/directions, no monthly service fees

I think so, but you may have to use voice command "bluetooth audio". I think this is how Pandora works with the Focus too.
