NAV A5 Card

Just put the A5 SD Card in my 2012 Focus and for some reason (perhaps my imagination) it seems slower. Maybe it has more data. Maybe I should Master Reset after updating the card (but I don't want to lose precious settings).

I went to settings, system to view the version number and Map is A5, but Gracenote is 5059 (Library 5.6.2.9). This is concerning because the A4 card has a Gracenote version of 5060 (5.6.2.9). Assuming these are numbered sequentially, it would seem it went backwards.

Anyone else have the A5 card? Can you check your Gracenote version?

Other comments on the A5?

Thanks!

I wonder what are the advantages of built-in navigation vs external unit (garmin, tom tom, magellan).

In few months it will be lacking feature vs external unit ...

What guarantee that the nav unit will continue to be updated after few years?


Just asking...

The primary advantage is that it's integrated into the car.

You won't have an external unit mounted to the dash or windshield saying steal me.

It also is on a larger screen which for some people makes it easier to glimpse at while driving.

I don't have navigation on my ST, but I see why some people would want it.

when i put my A5 card into my car, it said i was in Ontario (about 500mi west of me) and was really flakey. then it threw an error dialog box (that looks like windows - blue bar on top with an "X" button). i pulled over and turned the car off/opened door/turned it on again. the system rebooted and it's been mostly normal since.

a master reset is probably a good idea, or at least force a reboot.

What is everyone paying for it? I have been told it is FREE but I doubt it.

Did a master reset and it's acting ok now. Still wondering about the Gracenote version.

149 at dealer, 45 in eBay is what I see people paying. Some dealers give a discount.

OK folks! I might be a little behind the curve here. Is this adding navigation to an otherwise not equipped vehicle. Because I would love to add navigation to my wifes 2014 Fiesta SE. It's got the SD slot and the upgraded audio that comes with MFT. So, is this a pipe dream for me or what?
