I have just purchased a Ford Focus Zetec (first registered June 2011) with SD Navigation system. Would anyone be able to put my mind at ease - although the car is dated 2011 the SD card has date of 2010 printed on it - does this mean I have been given an old card by my dealer?

Have something to contribute?

The Mapping software is normally a year behind. I bought a Mk2.5 Sport in April last year and that has the 2010 disc.

Hi All,
On the subject of SD Navigation, does anyone know if you can put a 'Tom Tom' Sat Nav SD card in the SD Navigation unit in my 20 month old Focus Sport. I have just bought this car having sold my 13 year old Focus last week. I have always been used to the portable 'Tom Tom' version of SatNav and would dearly like to use it in the Focus unit. Hope ypu can help,
Cheers
Dave

You cant use it on the Blaupunkt system. If it was a Windows CE device you could have used lots of different versions of Satnav software on it. Its a shame as I like IGO8 and would prefer to use that rather than the Ford software.

Hi Bruce,
Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes it's a Blaupunkt system so you have answered my question.
Have had a Focus for 11 years and just changed it to Sport this week.
Hate the SatNav but looks as though I will have to grin and bear it.
Thanks again
Dave
PS. Do you know how to obtain extras on the SatNav...like speed camera locations etc. Is there a website to go to?

There is no way to add extras i'm afraid.

Hi Neil,
Thanks for info. Just tried the site and unable to find anything to match my system.
As I have only just got the car I suppose I will get used to the different Nav System in time.
Thanks again for every ones help,
Speak soon,
Dave

I use a Road Angel, but you can get some apps with speed cameras on your smart phone these days
