This is 100% my findings as well. Oh well. Voice clarity over the phone is significantly better. You win some, you lose some.

I agree - I renewed Sirius for another 6 months just for this. I won't be renewing it again, though. I'll be switching to Verizon soon, so I'll finally get more than 2G service in Racine. Waze is always spot-on with my ETA times anyway.

I am happy with my decision and maybe Ford will come out with a VIN based hack to add NAV if people want to upgrade. All it will take is a flash of the system to add the firmware so that NAV can be activated.

Congrats!youll love the car anyways even without

EMAGG7 I have the same car with a manual 2013 performance blue with handling package and I wanted nav the payment is not much of a differance and I have had no issues with mine and have used it like 4 times.

The only fully loaded Ti's are 2 gray and 1 black and I wanted something with color... Just me being picky. So I might be stuck with a gray car cause I hate black, had a black Audi A6, it was a PITA to keep clean.
Can you get your dealer to make a trade with another dealership somewhere in the area? That's what mine offered... when they still didn't have the colour I wanted with the accessories I wanted, I ended up doing a factory order. If you have the time (it's going to take about a month and a half from the day I signed to the day I get it) you could do an order. I didn't want to spend 25 grand on a car and not be 100% happy with everything.

But I was sold on the resale point(NAV is an $800 option that is worth resale if that is a deciding factor) and the integration even though I rarely run low on fuel. Plus my Samsung Galaxy S3 seems to get great GPS reception, if it doesn't, reboot the phone(doesn't take long).

MSRP on this car is $26,880 but with the Evergreen Ford $3000 off and the other $2500 in rebates I get, it's roughly $23,500 OTD without cash down.
I HAD a 2000 Honda CR-V to trade but with 223,600 miles they will only give me $2000 TIV. I am keeping my Honda to sell privately
I love tuxedo black on this car. Really sparkles in the sun.

Titanium Tony You obviously paid extra for the Titanium over the other trim levels cause of the added bells and whistles, why stop at the navigation option? With that nice 8" touch screen in the middle of the dash, navi should have been standard equipment.

btw: My Ti have the nav
