Update Navigation system

I noticed in the operating manual that you could update your navigation system at an additional cost. Has anyone done this? Where do you get the updates and at what cost? With my Garmin I tried to update every year or so. I believe this is a Navigation system supported by Microsoft, but not sure.

Thanks,
Larry

'A rip-off indeed! I purchased lifetime updates for my 5 year old Garmin for $99.00 and will never have to pay for updates again. I also get email notifications when new updates become available.
Ford should offer its customers something like this at a more reasonable price. For $200.00 I would expect lifetime updates.

Way overpriced and as far as I know it is a Garmin engine.

At the current Ford price the truck will be long gone before I update it.

It's garmin engine and looks like navteq maps, it asks for some unique number from your nav system info screen, at checkout, id be curious to know how this works, anyone do the update on their 2011 yet?

How often do they update their maps cause there are times I have to use google to get places cause the maps in the truck don't see it.

Was talking the other day to a service manger about my Wife's Explorer and he told me that Ford was stopping using a 3rd party vendor and going straight to the source and the price for updates would be getting cheaper, but not sure if the above is the cheaper price. She has the Sony Based System which I think is the same as the 2013 SD. We have had a few problems with the sync and nav stuff. Since we purchased it had two major updates.

Updates - with the millions of vehicles that have the NAV how many are actually updating at $200 a pop?
Very few I would think.

How many would update if the fee was reasonable, like $25?


With my Garmin portable GPS I did one update at the required $99. Very disappointed in what was actually received. My experience has shown that most of the updates have more to do with POI's then map detail.
My best guess is that it takes about 10 years for new streets to show up on mapping software.

I stopped doing the updates with Garmin until they offered the lifetime deal for $89. Although I do use that, I do not do every update that comes out, seems to cause more issues then it solves when it comes to routing.

You need the exact same map version on the PC and unit for routing otherwise it tends to choke.

For $200 an update I think I'll pass and use my phone if the truck nav can't get me to where I need to go. I wish they would just offer the updated poi lists for a cheaper rate. I mostly go to remote areas anyways but would be nice to know of the nearby restaurants. But the phone can cover that also if u can get signal.

Interesting thread, Iím new to the in dash NAV! I have been making customized maps to use on Garmins for sometime because I just hated paying for updates and just bought a 2013 Ford Edge for the wife with NAV ($700) because she just hates my Garmins stuck all over the windshield. I also have ordered a 2013 F350 with NAV. Although I didnít expect the Ford NAV system to be up to par with a company that just makes GPS devices, I assumed that there would be some way to personalize a Ford NAV system, but then I just havenít had a chance?
What I did ask the salesman ďDo I have to pay for NAV updatesĒ and he said that as long as the vehicle was under warranty, they were free. And that some of his previous customers have customized the maps on theirs. I did see a Youtube video about adding custom maps and POIs, but just didnít pay too much attention till my new truck was in the driveway. With the Ford Edge during the walk around I noticed that the Dealer just picked a NAV chip off the shelve and showed me how to install it, my concerns is what is going to stop someone from stealing my $200 NAV chip if it can be used on any Ford NAV system? Or go on online or go to a Scrap Yard and buy one cheap?
Sorry about the length, just bored waiting for my new truck, but like other posters, Iím not going to pay for updates that have road changes and POI in places that are miles away that I wonít be going to or when the updates donít have the changes in my area to major highways two years old, when my phone or Gamin can be updated in real time.

It might be different in CA. but I don't think the updates are free in USA. I tried on my F150 and I know other people have tried at different dealers and we all got denied.
