It would run through app links or even AirPlay with Apple devices.

If you truly want Navigation, i would advise you go that route and just get a lower model SE and have the dealership or some other shop throw in an integrated nav system for like 1k more.

Problem is, I like the Leather, heated seats and all the other features in the SEL version. The one I found has everything I want, except the Navigation. It feels like what a car should feel like in 2013.

Do you have pictures though of your interior?

Mithan Well that is stupid.

You would think they would release a press statement or something.

hotleadsingerguy BULL*

Don't believe a single lying word that comes out of their mouths. I was told a year and a half ago I could upgrade too, and I still have no Nav. When I pre-ordered the car the *only* thing I demanded the car had was full navigation system. The dealership screwed me over and left me with a car without the Nav system. I was told time and time again that adding it would be possible soon...

...and here we are a year and a half later and every Ford tech is still saying it's not possible. I've been working on doing it myself, but Ford is being *COMPLETELY* unhelpful in the entire situation. They won't even give me part numbers for any of the modules in the car, so I've had to get them from others with the car.

2012 Focus SEL Nav upgrade?

I was at the dealership today looking at a 2012 Focus SEL with MyTouch but it doesn't have navigation.

The entire POINT IMO to getting a car with a nice screen in it like this IS the damn navigation, else why not just get the regular SE and save $3-5k overall? I don't need a 8" LCD for changing the AC/Radio or BlueTooth.

Anyways, the car salesman called the garage and they told him that right now it can't be done but that Ford is working on a Navigation upgrade, but that it would go for about $800 or so (which is fine by me).

Has anybody else heard this?

If I knew this for FACT, I would purchase the 2012 Focus SEL I was looking at today, but otherwise, there is no point.
