I've just updated my Satnav. with 2008 maps this included software update 5.0, however I now understand a further update is now available 5.1. Anyone know of a safe site where this update is available for download. I'm ok with how to do it, just don't know where to get it from - so to speak!

Im guessing Blaupunkt sent you your free update then? I was going to install the 5.1 update however I didnt want to risk damaging the system by doing it myself. I think the dealer updated it anyway at the next service.

Sadly no, they didn't even respond to my request, so I sent them another request in German (thanks to Google translation service) and got a straight refusal. It appears they now send the update direct to Ford and suggested I pay for the privilage. I spoke to my local Ford dealer and was quoted £98. To be fair to him he said "if it isn't broke don't mend it" and proceeded to frighten the life out of me with some horror stories about satnav's. I am going to take his advice but can I thank you for taking the time once again to respond.
