For the first no, it is not as simple as buying an SD card and getting an activation. For the second, I don't think any of us really know if and/or what is coming to the 2012s as far as Applink but I can't imagine they would support a nav app as it would cut into the sales of their $800 option.Hi, I have MFT without navigation. I didn't think it was worth the $800 for what sounds like factory activation and an SD card loaded with maps. Has there been any word on the possibility of adding navigation (with maps) to current MFT models without nav? Otherwsie, do you think Applink will be promising and offer a navigation app?
