Fx Satnav Questions.

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Been driving my car for 6 days and I am absolutely, positively over the moon with it. Far more fun than the BMW 3 Series was, missing a bit of top end grunt that the A3 1.8T had, but all round this car is far better, couldn't be happier. :) Averaging high 30s MPG wise in a 1.6 petrol which considering how cold it is outside and the fact that I have to negotiate 40MPH lorries and roundabouts every few miles, I am very pleased with that.

I have the FX Sat Nav system in my car and I have to be honest, I am very impressed with this as well. Having a USB socket next do the handbrake is just the most clever thing I have encountered in an OEM system. Does anyone know if ford hides a subwoofer in these cars anywhere, by the way!? The amount of bass I am getting (accurate without distortion) is amazing - I really was getting ready to read up on how to gut the interior to do my usual work of installing an aftermarket 4 channel amplifier to power the door speakers and get a second amplifier for a subwoofer, but I don't need to!

Apologies for waffling, the actual question is about maps. It appears to be a bit of a difficult thing to do from my recent travels on Google - is there anywhere to easily buy an up to date SD card with 2012 maps on? Or are there any software updates available from the ford website? I hope I have just overlooked them somewhere, but you guys will know the answer.

Cheers guys.

Hi, reference the satnav, there is no updates available unfortunately for download.

The Ford satnav data is copy/write protected on the card, he latest one available afaik is the 2010 UK, Western Europe and Turkey data which if purchased from a Dealer is a lot of money.

OK, I have the 2010 SD card in my car already.

Thankfully, I have a phone capable of internet mapping so if I do find myself stranded I can use that.

Will keep an eye out for an update (should one ever surface.)
