bringler26 I would do yourself a favor and just buy an aftermarket headunit. Blaupunkts have a tenancy to constantly crap out after a while. My sister went through 4 in the life time of her owning the car and they were all replaced free of charge by the dealer.

Magus2727 Likely wont have the maps. not sure though. Might have to call up a dealer. They likely would have the maps on a CD installer or some other way.

but that navigation looks awful to today's standard. why not just use Google maps on a phone? always updated, color, likely better options, and aerial map views.

MK1 Focus Blaupunkt stereo issue

This is a problem that has been occurring with my Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD/CDC/MP3 radio head unit for awhile now. If you hit the AM/FM button (to change between AM and FM1-FM2 or FM3) instead of swapping AM/FM it scans for other stations

You can mash the button as hard as you can, it will not tune to AM.

I'd like to replace it with a whole new Blaupunkt stereo HOWEVER, I have discovered Ford made this exact head unit with TravelPilot navigation. It's apparently in Europe only, however. It looks like this:


It'd be nice to have navigation but would it work with an American Focus? Would it even have US maps? Or should I just change the whole stereo itself for a single or double DIN stereo.

Thanks for the help
