January 2013 MFT update

I just got a letter in the mail from Ford that my 2012 Titanium has an update (v3.5) ready for it and I should go to syncmyride.com to get it. I am currently downloading it however before I started, it said that there is a new Navigation SD card that I need for the update. If walks you through ordering it (for free).

My question is do I need to wait to get the card before I update MFT? I rarely if ever use the navigation because Google Maps on my iPhone is 100x better. It is kind of vague but it sounds like I only need it for the navigation and the rest of the update will work without it. I just wont have updated maps until I get the new card.

Thoughts?

Do not do update until you have the A4 Nav card. Your Nav will not work without the A4 card.

Everything else will work. You will have to re-sync your phone. Don't leave your A3 card in the SD slot, it'll mess the system up.
