GPS Module even in non-nav-equipped Fiesta?


Recommended Posts

Having connected up Forscan to have a nose around I've noticed that my car has a GPS module fitted despite me not having got the navigation option:

GPSM - Global Positioning System Module
Part number: DE8T-19H463-BB
Strategy : DE8T-14F055-BB

I was wondering therefore if the GPS module is still active - perhaps used to give a location input to Ford Sync's Emergency Assistance feature? I had previously thought it wouldn't have provided a location; relying instead on the emergency service's cell tower triangulation capabilities.

Does anyone know any info about this?

Thanks for confirming that Karl. As is often the case with questions posted to forums no sooner had I put it up did I found this from the NCAP summary of it:


This GPS location is taken from the on-board GPS module which is standard equipment of every vehicle having SYNC.

Will try the INFO suggestion tomorrow and see if that works!
