mac.mogul I've tried using the Turn-by-turn in my '11 Focus and it works okay, but it only works if the damn sync services lady can understand what I'm saying and she never does so I don't use it.

I see where you're coming from, GhiaFan, I just don't handle any pricing-related information. I know this thread is a bit dated, but it doesn't hurt to voice your opinion here:

To confirm, turn-by-turn directions are currently unavailable in Canada. You do, however, have 911 Assist. Hopefully you never have to use it, but if you're in a crash where airbags deploy, 911 Assist with GPS uses your paired phone to call a 911 operator. Follow these steps to ensure it's turned on:

bassmobile Use it all the time, I have not fired up my TomTom in a while! Have the Destinations app on my iPhone with allot of my saved points.

The only down side to use this is if you go off the downloaded route. It does not automatically re-calculate the route and display it like a regular GPS does.

In this case Sync tells you that you have left the planned route and asks you if you want to update it. Then you have to go through the whole download process again. It is not the fastest process....but it works.

The only issue I have is once and a while I had problems downloading the route. It would fail. This is not a Sync issue I realize....more of the cell phone the signal I am getting. I now have the iPhone 5 so hopefully with LTE/4G speeds I will not have those issues again.

cobie56 be aware tho that if you use google maps on an ipad the method shown in the above videos on youtube won't work... the app in the ipad wants to do the routing for you by itself and won't 'post' to sync. At least i can't get it to do it.....

biglar412 You have to use Mapquest instead of Google maps. I used it once and it works great. I have a couple of addresses stored on My Ford Syc .com that I can use from the car where ever I'm at. That featured has also worked well.
