Sony Sat Nav Problems

02 November 2013 - 10:43 PM

I bought a new Fiesta Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost 99bhp on 12/10/2013, which has the optional Sony Sat Nav. My main problem is that there is very limited information about how to use the satnav - just 2 pages in the Fiesta manual - so it is all trial and error. Main problems:

 

1) I can enter a postcode but there doesn't appear to be any way to enter house number, so the destination is imprecise.

 

2) After entering postcode there is a further field called "District" which would look a good candidate to enter house number, but it is not possible to enter any information into this field.

 

3) So far I have entered 7 character postcodes ok. Just tried to enter a 6 character postcode but it insisted on 7. However after 'fiddling about' I was able to enter the 6 character code but can't reproduce what I did.

 

The supplying dealer (Think Ford) was only able to confirm my observations, and Sony was no help as they insisted on having a model number which I don't know.

 

So has anyone else solved these problems (admittedly quite small in the context of a very good car) or can point me to a proper instruction manual.
