Can Factory navigation be added to My Ford Touch systems in the FiST at a later time?

If so, is it as easy as a possible re-flash and SD car upgrade?

Thanks in advance,

K

I believe its different for the FiST since it already has the same MFT system. Might just need the SD card for it??

Not if you go through sources outside of ford. I am not condoning this but I know where you can get it cheaper.

Real quick and easy way to test this...find a friend with a Fist that has nav, transplant the sd card into yours as a test :)

No my focus has the same MFT unit as a navigation equipped one would. What the parts guy told me was that the non-nagivation MFT units don't have the GPS tracker associated with it. Hence why you need a new actual headunit. How true this is Im not sure...But I know just inserting the SD card won't work...I tried it.

My car does not have Navigation, I just installed Sync destinations on my cell phone. It hooks up with the my ford touch screen automatically and I use the cars touch screen and give it voice commands saying the address and the car gives me turn by turn directions even though I do not have nav. Works great for me.

It's nice to use navigation apps via smartphone, BUT it's of no help if your data plan is small or you're out of region. For example, coming from Vancouver, roaming is pretty expensive driving down to Washington State.

It only uses your phone to make a call when downloading the directions and then hangs up (takes about 1 min) then you can be on your way and even use your phone to make calls. The car does not use the phone when telling you were to go.

Ya that has to be BS. The car must have GPS otherwise the directions from Sync wouldn't work.

That's what I was thinking. It has to be a firmware flash then.
