#466367 09 Mondeo Sat Nav Question

Posted by sparkymark75 on 17 March 2015 - 08:45 AM

Consider buying a more up-to-date but slightly older map update? For example, you can get 2013 maps for just over £50 at http://www.navmapsto...velPilot_NX_DVD

 

I have a Tom Tom sat nav but I don't have free lifetime updates so they want £70 for a map update. Now I have retrofitted the NX into my 09 Mondeo, it has the 2012 maps and I'll keep it like that for now as I believe the map updates after 2012 lose the TMC functionality.




#456252 Upgrade Ford Sony To Ford Sat Nav

Yeah, since posting that it seems the Ford Sat Nav isn't the best. It'd probably be worth keeping if it came with it but to retrofit it, maybe better of with an after market unit if you can cope without the Covers+ functionality for radio, music, etc
 
I think I'm now of the opinion that I'll just stick with what I have and retrofit USB to it, that way I can stick mp3's on a memory stick instead of burning CD's.
 
I was considering getting one of those Chinese units (such as this one http://www.talkford....dtg-411-sat-nav) but I'm not sure about the quality of the radio and sound and the fact that they usually run android or wince so take a while to boot up. If you do go down the Ford Sat Nav route, let me know how you get on.
