stang7043 So I stumbled across this thread researching NAV and my 2013 focus. I was curious if the people that were ordering the display units from http://car-part.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi if they ever received their units and if they worked. Also is this unlimited NAV or like sync services does this option expire where you have to renew the services every few yrs. When I purchased my car I was adamant about having navigation. The sales person assured me there was. Well he was talking about the crappy TBT and I was talking about the actual nav software/package. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That's an exciting way to kick off the weekend, Kenpo_zx3!

If you haven't done so already, be sure to create a SYNC Owner Account.

Hey, Kenpo_zx3 -

Did you purchase yet? Red and black interior sounds hot!

To answer your question, you cannot transmit map data from your phone to the MyFord Touch system, however, when your vehicle's in park, you can watch videos or hook up a game system using the Audio/Video inputs. The jacks are located behind a small access door on the instrument panel or in the center console.

I will be doing the update soon to see if it improves the other things however.
Go for the nav, have it all together in one place and it looks a lot cleaner
This is great to hear, Phokus! The 3.2.2 and 3.5.1 updates address concerns with climate control. Because your vehicle is equipped with navigation, you'll receive a new SD card (A4). I recommend setting up an appointment with your dealership to have this performed.

suss6052 is a wealth of knowledge, but don't hesitate to shoot me a PM if you have any additional questions.

cheekedave I am only thinking about the nav head unit because I am going to be adding on park assist and the backup camera. Would look silly if I have all those features but no NAV :)

Secondly no, the SD card does contain the map data, but at the same time its not enough to allow you to enable navigation on a car that was not provisioned for navigation from the factory.

If your car was built with navigation from the factory the software and hardware is prepared for the SD card, but without the modules being programmed for navigation you'd have to frankenstein the system from an activated sync/mft module/ screen/ system from a wrecked car.
I do indeed mean 8" :)

So basically, the Nav is already installed in the car, and the SD card is basically just the key to turn it on (w/ the map data in it of course)?

I guess I was mistaken :)

Well yes, its not directly tied into the sd card, but the SD card contains the map data that the navigation software needs to run.

gsxrboy I never believed in the NAV systems car companies provide. They are never updated as quickly as I would like and you are limited on the information it provides. (corrections and POI's are always outdated). I simply purchased a Pro Mount located by the passenger vent, use my Google Nexus phone with Waze to view up to the second traffic conditions and up to the second POI's. Currently Waze is available with Gas Station prices displayed if you enable it. They are always updating the software and all of this for free!
