It is an SD card, it's to the left of the screen. To get it out just push it in and it will pop out but make sure the stereo is off. It should be blue or yellow, yellow being newer version compared to the blue.

Yeah, I have the same unit - the maps are all on the SD card, as I tried it when I bought it and there were no maps/navigation available until I put the SD card in.

 

Incidentally, does anyone know if its possible to get the maps updated, and how much it costs?

 

Do they have to be maps from Ford, or are other sat nav maps (TomTom, Garmin, etc) map packs compatible?

The SD cards from Ford cost an arm and a leg.
There are usually some available on eBay, just check that they're originals not copies.
Afaik the navs aren't compatible with other map packs.

Since they changed to the new Focus in 2011 no new maps have been eleased as far as i am aware , if your after the manual for that satnav unit , then see a link in my signature below for a download.

 

Even with out the card you should stll be able to get basic postion information on the screen but no routing.

Checked this evening, and my SD card says it is the 2009 version of the maps.

 

Had a look on eBay, and most of the recent SD map cards for it seem to be about £40 upwards.

 

I'll probably just stick with the ones I've got, for the amount I use it - but if it had been cheaper, I'd upgrade them.

 

Cheers fro that link Preee, I had found the manual online already, as the car didn't come with that manual.

£40 is cheap :).
Try asking Ford what they charge for them.

Last time I asked, Ford wanted about 200-250 for an SD Card.
