Still curious if it was Ford or Google that discontinued the use, I'm thinking, Google since OnStar also doesn't work anymore.

I wonder if Ford will add Bing Maps to it.
I'm not sure I understand your logic...are you saying it's more logical that two separate companies decided, at the same time, to stop supporting Ford than it is for Ford to make a decision on not supporting alternatives from their competitors?

My strong assumption is that Ford decided not to support Google and GM (OnStar) because they see them as competitors. Horrible decision for Ford...a vast majority of our nation uses Google Maps for computer mapping applications. Completely ridiculous to block that functionality.
