Ford's official response on syncmyride.com is that the car has to be built with on screen NAV and cant be added after the fact. I dont buy the response 100%. The car already has NAV through Sync Services, just no on screen. If the car already has MFT and the SD slot to put the car in, what else would the car have to be built with to add on screen NAV to the existing MFT setup?
I just added nav to my 2012 focus titanium last night. I had the turn by turn sync services and it was terrible. I bought a full nav unit on ebay for $500 from a wreced titanium and installed it in my car. It came right up, all the connections were identical, as a matter of fact, the units loaded identical as well. This makes me think a software update for nav is possible. I thought the new unit may be tied to vin, but it wasn't. I got lucky. I now also have the ability to add a backup camera. I am a happy camper since everyting worked.
