Hi

 

First post to this forum (I think!). Hi all

 

Proud owner of a new 1L Ecoboost Titanium. Love it in every way.

 

We got the built in sat nav as one of the added extras, but it seems to be faulty. There is an intermittent "no GPS" message in the display which renders the unit unusable. I will take it back to the dealer as its only 6 days old but has anyone come across this issue? Possibly a lose wire or faulty connector as the fault is intermittent. Is there such a thing as a manual for the sat nav - a couple of pages in the owners handbook doesn't really do it justice. 

 

On to the car itself, it is really smooth and quiet compared to our previous one (a 2010 1.6TDCI Fiesta). The gear ratios appear to be much higher and so far pretty pleased with its MPG (I got an average of over 46 MPG on a 450 mile round trip over the weekend of mainly motorway driving) This compares to about 55 from the diesel, but it was very cold and the engine only hap 20 miles on the clock before the journey. Even liking the Sync!

 

Thank you

 

Stewart

It could be either the GPS aerial is not connected properly or there is a problem with the configuration of the nav unit.

Hi Benjamin

 

Have replied to your PM and sent a seperate email to you with the requested photos. For the benefit of others, the Sat Nav "No GPS" problem seems to have fixed itself after Ford couldn't find a fault.

 

Regards

 

Stewart

Hi Stewart,

 

Drove home in mine yesterday, woo hoo!!! Is your sat nav all OK still?

 

Reference your query on sat nav book, my owners manual has 5 pages on the sat nav, and the dealer gave me an actual book for "Navigation System Owners Manual", but i think its the wrong one.  So i will contact them and ask.  I recall you saying your owners book only having 2 pages, let us know.

Hi Torchwood.

 

The Satnav is still fine at the moment, so hopefully now all sorted.

 

Re the book, you are quite right mine also has 5 pages but they are not very comprehensive. I never got the Navigation Owners Manual. Could you let me have the full name/ref no when you get the right one?

 

How are you liking the car? I previously had the pre facelift Titanium and the new one definately feels like a step up.

 

Thanks

 

Stewart

Car is lovely, the sat nav worked fine, and is great how it is linked to the rear park sensors in reverse mode.  I had the pre face-lift Sport, but this is a real step up.. Once i get a few issues sorted i will be happier.

 

Yes as soon as i get confirmation on the nav book i will let you know... ;)
