      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Sadly no, they didn't even respond to my request, so I sent them another request in German (thanks to Google translation service) and got a straight refusal. It appears they now send the update direct to Ford and suggested I pay for the privilage. I spoke to my local Ford dealer and was quoted £98. To be fair to him he said "if it isn't broke don't mend it" and proceeded to frighten the life out of me with some horror stories about satnav's. I am going to take his advice but can I thank you for taking the time once again to respond. Mera.
  2. Hi Everyone, I've just updated my Satnav. with 2008 maps this included software update 5.0, however I now understand a further update is now available 5.1. Anyone know of a safe site where this update is available for download. I'm ok with how to do it, just don't know where to get it from - so to speak! Thanks Mera
  3. That's fantastic, once again thanks for the response. Mera
  4. Many thanks for the response, I spoke to my Ford dealer today, he confirms it is a Blaupunkt but was not sure how to proceed with the free upgrade?. Is it just a case of contcating them.? Mera
  5. Hi Everyone, First ever posting, first ever ford. I recently bought a 2007 Mondeo Ghia with a factory fitted sat.nav. I phoned my local dealer to enquire about updating the maps etc. and was informed it would cost circa. £280. I cannot believe the cost for what I would imagine is inserting a CD. Is there any other way of carrying out this task at a more realistic price. Any ideas appreciated. Mera.
