Ford says no, and its pretty much impossible short of taking an already activated system from a wrecked car, Ford won't let the dealers use the ids tool to enable things that were not on that vehicle when it was built (its all vin based).

Dang, is it possible to get the screen of the iPhone maps up on the screen? Sorry for all the noob questions. Google and YouTube only get me so far.

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.

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.

I found a nice black titanium with red and black interior with MFT in my price range but no nav just wondering if I would miss not getting it.

I use a Tom Tom. It was less than $200 and comes with free lifetime quarterly maps and live traffic updates. You can update it when you want, it'll never hang your mft and will likely always run reliably. Personally I think until nav built into a car can match those points it's nearly pointless to buy in, especially with the instability of mft.

I haven't had any problems with the nav once I learned the exact way it works. Sirius traffic alerts are a nice option too when you don't know the roads of a state you have never been to.

I am waiting to call 2 scrap yards today, apparently you can get the head unit (as stated above) and as long as it was enabled with NAV, just get the A4 SD card (ebay) and you are good to go.

http://car-part.com .. search for TV Screen and there you go. Not sure the right part numbers, but it does mention NAV. Good luck!

I looked those up. Sure enough it does list the head into with nav. I may have to dig into this a little bit.

Thanks for the other responses too.
