  1. Hi All I have a 2012 Galaxy 2.0 Titanium X that has a £1400 Satnav option fitted that CANNOT have Safety/Speed Camera locations installed. When I wrote to Ford about this they said that mine was the only complaint they had received about this. I was wondering if everybody else is happy that their Satnavs cannot show Safety/Speed camera locations? Regards Bob
  2. Satnav Adding Safety Camera Locations

    Thanks all for replies. I was not making myself very clear, what I wanted to know was, is there any after market stuff that will enable safety cameras to be added to the SatNav installed in my Galaxy? Regards Bob
  3. Satnav Adding Safety Camera Locations

    Is there any aftermarket stuff that will let you do it? Bob
  4. Hi How to you go about adding safety camera locations to SatNav on a Galaxy titanium X 2.0 diesel 163PS registered in March 2012? Regards Bob
  5. Hi I cannot believe that Ford would not have this facility available to install on their Satnav when you consider that it has been available on all the major Satnav manufacturers devices for years. Can anyone advise if I have been advised correctly and if so if anyone out there has managed to overcome this oversight by Ford? Regards Bob
  6. Paint Match Problem

    Hi Just bought a Titanium X 2.0 diesel 163PS Auto March 2012 in Moondust silver. It had a scratch on the plastic rear n/s lower panel. It has been painted twice now but the colour is coming up darker than the rest of the car. The work is being carried out by a Ford dealer who is telling me that this is a common problem with paintwork matching on Fords. Any suggestion please? Regards Bob
  7. Mk3 Galaxy Aircon Prblem

    As a result of your reply I took it back to dealer and asked to see details of the recall. The workshop foreman then took the car into the workshop and put it up on the ramp and checked the rear pipe and it was obvious that it was leaking. They obviously had not done the job properly or were expecting me to hand over £75 and then do the job and claim the expenses back from Ford and pocket my £75. Thanks for your advice the dealer is now going to do it free of charge. Bob
  8. Hi Took my Galaxy in for its second service and was told by the dealer that it had a recall for airconditioning outstanding which they would deal with at the same time. Shortly after the service our weather got hot enough for me to use the aircon but it would not blow colder than 20 degrees. I went back to the dealer and reminded them that they had worked on the aircon and that now it would not blow colder than 20 degrees. They said what they had done would not cause the aircon to lose gas and that I would have to pay £75 to have it topped up as gas only covered a 1 year guarantee period. This all sounds a little dubious to me. Can anyone please advise? Regards Bob
