  1. Hey all, I'm looking for details on how difficult it is to retrofit a Satnav to the 2015 Ford Focus. I currently have a Sync 2 8" head unit and find conflicting information online and also from my official ford retailer! Some say it requires an entirely new loom/wiring system where as others state that it may require activation only by a retailer and others specify a new head unit - does anyone have experience with this at all? Thanks in advance
  2. Hi, Im hoping someone can help. I have purchased the original Sat Nav system for my Zetec S, it fits perfectly and works flawlessly (with the required wires added for the voice guidance) Just one question... Does anyone know how to change the dials from Kilometers to Miles? When the satnav is connected, the odometer automatically changes from miles to KM, and changes back when the satnav is disconnected. I try to change this in the Display settings, Kilometers is highlighted but it will not allow me to change it to miles?? I can highlight Miles but when I press OK, nothing happens? Anyone got any ideas? 2013 Zetec S 1.0 Ecoboost - Sync 1.1 Thanks
  3. Hi all I've been following the guide here to fit sat nav to my 2012 Fiesta: I've got all of the parts ready to go, but I've hit a problem with the central configuration in Forscan. The guide says to: Open Forscan, go to Central Configuration, change to engineering mode, and change the options below: Touchscreen - 06. MFD 5 Navigation System - For EU The problem is, under my touchscreen options, there are only 3, and none of them are MFD 5 (see picture!). I guess this is because my car is pre-facelift. Is there anything I can do, and will it still work without this option? Any advice much appreciated!

    Retro Fit Sat Nav to Fiesta MK7.5

    You will need: Sat Nav Screen and plastic surround / holder GPS Fakra Antenna - a cheap one from eBay will do Screen Cover Female Fakra to Female Fakra Sat Nav stereo panel with navigation buttons Forscan extended license If your car does not have DAB, I bought an antenna like this To remove the screen surround, place a trim tool / screwdriver under the edge of the panel and work your way around until all the clips pop off. Remove the screen by unscrewing the 2 T20 screws at either side. To remove the connector, depress the tab and move the lever. Place a trim tool or screwdriver between the stereo and passenger airbag light to pop off the airbag light panel. There is only 1 clip holding this on in the middle. Be carful not to lose the metal clip if it comes out. Unscrew the 2 T20 screws and 2 8mm bolts, and give the radio panel a tug, and unplug the connector. To remove the CD / Radio unit, simply pull, it is on pressure clips. Fit the Sat Nav screen, two wires need to be connected from the Sat Nav unit to the radio, this enables the voice guidance. Screen Pin 6 > Radio pin 4 Screen Pin 12 > Radio pin 5 The black Fakra connector needs to be removed from your radio and connected to the black connector on the Sat Nav. The fakra adapter connects the pink fakra on the screen to the FM fakra on the radio. The blue fakra is for the GPS antenna Screw the Sat Nav unit down and refit the Radio and front panel, give it a quick test to make sure it all works. Your dials may show in KM, this is normal Pop the airbag light panel back into place, and push the screen cover on over the screen, ENSURE THE SD CARD IS REMOVED TO PREVENT POTENTIALLY SNAPPING THE CARD Once the Sat Nav is fully installed and tested, it needs to be activated through Forscan (this changes the dials back from KM to miles) Open Forscan, go to Central Configuration, change to engineering mode, and change the options below: Touchscreen - 06. MFD 5 Navigation System - For EU Apply the settings, this should change the dials back to miles and gallons. Congratulations! You have a fully working Sat Nav!
  5. Hello! just purchased a focus 2009 titanium which has a sat nav radio. I was told that the battery had just been replaced however since doing so the radio/sat nav does not stay on for longer than about 10 seconds. I have been been able to program the date/time and it does remain correct, however it will not stay on. Is there a way to check the battery or should I check the wiring behind the radio? thanks!!!

    Upgrading to sat nav

    Hi folks, I have bought a 2013 SMAX titanium and it doesn't have the sat nav unit. I was hoping to replace the stereo unit with a sat nav unit, preferably an origanal, has anyone got any links as to where I can find one, or any info on whether its a good or bad idea. Thanks
  7. I purchased a used Focus 2008 popped in the SD card for the sat nav set all up selected UK all maps good but cannot change the announcement to English from German. Any ideas as didn't see a prompt to set language. Car display unit also in English but Sat Nav Announces in German? Have muted it for now but cannot find how to change it. Thanks
  8. I recently bought a 2010 Focus with the built in Sat Nav unit. However the starting point seems to be putting me 100s of miles out of my location. I tried to reset it but it doesn't work. Must I do a calibration?

    Navigation SD Card

    Hi guys. Picked up my Fiesta on the weekend :). Its a 2014 Titanium X with all the bells and whistles. The only thing I'm missing is the Ford Navigation SD card. I'll be totally honest I cant even find where it goes in the car lol. Does anyone have one for sale or can they point me in the right direction. I went to a dealership and they quoted me £260!

    Incoming Newbie

    Hi everyone. I'm picking up my 2014 Ford Fiesta this weekend. Its a Titanium X so full of gadgets :). Have any of you modified yours in anyway? I was also told when I paid for this that it has Sat Nav capabilities I just need an SD card with the software on, is that true? I've also attached a couple of photos :-).
  12. Hi, I just bought a ford focus titanium model (2015) and wanted to add sat nav. Rather than buy the sat nav from the dealer I foolishly bought a sat nav sd card from ebay here is the link to the item I bought: I was wondering where I install this in the newest ford focus. I read online that there was something in the glove box or attached to the unit but I can't find anything. There is a Sd Card slot in the arm rest, when I inserted the SD Card here nothing happened. Anyone know how you install the sat nav updates to the latest model of Ford Focus. All I can get from google is vague links about older models. Thanks so much in advance. David
  13. So I have a fiesta black edition 2015, and it has the big standard stereo fitted with the blue screen. I want to change it from that to the ford unit with the screen which is coloured and has a sat nav installed. Is this possible? Has any one else done this? I will add pictures of what I mean. i want the standard ford sat nav system just to specify again. Does anyone know if this will work?
  14. Hi is there anyone who can give me advice? my sat nav doesn’t fully work as in when you put an address in sometimes a message will pop up saying ‘this address doesn’t exist’ or ‘send to middle of range’ now Ford has given me a new SD card to no avail and now they have turned around and said there’s nothing they can do?? surely I have some rights as the product was faulty to begin with? Its a focus 2015 newer model thanks Geth
  15. As title, can anyone give me a definitive answer as to whether a sync-era display and sony branded radio can be fitted to a non-sync (BT/VC system) car, and bluetooth still work - less bothered about nav voice control, but voice control in general I could also do with keeping functional. Thanks Mark

    Sat Nav update! - Sync 2

    Hi How do you update the maps etc with Sync 2? There seems to be a few links suggesting this is possible, but not found an answer yet. I have a 66 plate Ford Focus. The SD card has for the Sat Nav has a F5 sticker on it. I have loaded this into my computer and have found that the version text file states the map is dated 2013:03:15. Some 4 years out of date!! I decided to get a car with Sat Nav included as I cover a lot of miles in areas I am not familiar with. I have found that so many times the Sat Nav cannot find the address I need, so have to use Google Maps and then try to find on my Sync 2. (Very time consuming)! I have come across many new roads and motorways which simply don't exist, so it looks like I am ploughing through fields! and hence can't calculate an efficient route. At my service last week, my local Ford dealer said there are no updates. Really!! If this uses TomTom maps, there must me a way to keep up to date, surely? Any help on this, or links to update files would be a great help. Thanks

    Hi all. Having been a Ford owner most of my life, I am now on my fifth Focus - I wanted one as soon as they came out and have never been disappointed with any of them. I would like to know what the latest Ford Sync Satnav version is. I purchased the car around 18 months ago with SD card version 4 and recently purchased, what I though would be the most up to date version 7 for 2017. A new by-pass road was finished near Torquay almost two years ago with the construction starting some five years ago. Given the 'newness' of the satnav version, I assumed this road would already be on it. Alas, no. My query is, what is, realistically, the latest version of Ford's Sync Satnav and how actually 'up to date' are they?
  18. Hi guys and girls! Im new to this site and new to ford. I have a 2011 ford focus sport, with built in sat nav, with ford micro sd car, bought it recently and sat nav was in full working order, until my battery went, i got it changed by AA and since then ive hada problem with it loading onto the sat nav search screen it says its loading abd please by careful on the road etc but keeps the same loading screen on. Can anybody help? My sat nav isnt touch screen.
  19. Afternoon All, I've just taken delivery of a new Fiesta Red Edition. She's a beaut, and unlike my previous Red Edition this one has an integrated Sat Nav. The only problem is, after plugging in my trusty dash cam next to the mirror, I've noticed that as long as the dash cam is plugged in, the sat nav reads 'GPS' and it thinks that I'm driving around over fields and through the oceans. As soon as I unplug the dash cam, it works flawlessly! After looking around I'm lead to believe that the GPS antenna must be located in the black box next to the rear-view mirror (I've read that this is the location for post-2013 Fiestas only) - does anyone have a diagram or can anyone confirm this? Has anyone else had this issue? If so, where does everyone else put their dash cam??
  20. Hi All, recently i have just visit one guy that is a really great technician and programmer when it comes to Ford vehicles. Last few months he spent digging with SYNC3 devices and he finally found a way how to add the Sat Nav into nonNAV version of SYNC 3. So i thought that at least i can give you all an info that it is really possible and what it takes to retrofit the navigation in SYNC3. TheEU nonNAV version of SYNC3 usually should already be equipped with GPS antenna (as it was also with SYNC2). Also it has an internal 16GB e.MMC memory where it is not possible to retrofit the navigation (small space for EU maps). That is why a soldering is involved. 1. A new 64GB e.MMC memory is needed 2. Then we have to open the APIM module and remove the original 16GB e.MMC card. 3. We need to have a special e.MMC card reader and clone the data from 16GB card to a new 64GB card. 4. Setting the serial number ESN to a new memory 5. Solder the new e.MMC memory to the APIM 6. Another custom installation update package with navi maps + navi app will be installed 7. Test if everything works After connecting the APIM module later to a Ford's server they will be able to recognize it as a NAV version and will also provide you MAP updates for future and any Ford dealer can later perform also standard NAV updates. So actually the Sat Nav will be retrofitted as from the factory. Yeah, the retrofit of the navigation is for real not so easy as it is with SYNC 2 and involves much more time, gadgets and patient. The guy has only done it to few of his friends. But i have asked him if he maybe will not be willing to do it for others from around the Europe. So maybe if somebody from here will be interested PM me and i can ask him for his time but really have no idea how much would he charge for it @Admins: if this topic somehow violates the rules, please delete it :)
  21. Is there anyway of retro fitting this unit into 2014 st? As you can see it's a touch screen unit with sd card reader and wiring loom. My car has sync1 the unit is sync2. Any my help would be great as I've bought it and should have researched things a bit better first. Thanks in advance.

    59 Plate ford focus Sat nav/USB

    I have a 2.0 tdci ford focus 2009 i have the aux and usb ports in the armrest in centre console but they seem to be intermittent or not connecting at all also same with bluetooth i have a iphone 6 and was wondering if it needs new software (the car sat nav) any body else had these problems?
  25. Hi there, I'm pretty new on here although I've been a member on and off for years. I have a 2011 (61) Fiesta Zetec 1.4 auto which I'm 'updating'. Btw, I'm 47 so this could be a mid life crisis in disguise! It is, obviously, pre-facelift I've fitted the part leather seats from a 2014/15 titanium and also installed the black fascia Ford Sat Nav DAB system. I figured out the seat wiring differences too. Heres the problem. My old Ford stereo set up had factory Bluetooth and worked great. I've now fitted the later system and I can't find Bluetooth on it and my iPhone doesn't see the audio system either. I CAN find SYNC options on the MENU screen but I cannot get in to them. Am I missing a piece of hardware? Or just a few marbles and failing to see an obvious solution? Also, while the sat nav worked straight away (and, my God, the screen is gorgeous compared with my old red LED screen!), I cannot get the display to show time and date. The dashes are there --:-- for time and --.--.---- for date and I've tried changing the DATE/TIME settings from manual to auto GPS but it doesn't make a difference. Oh, and my VOICE button no longer works. Again, am I missing something physical or mental? Lastly, on the back of the screen are 3 connectors. Red, black and blue. The blue one is gps and I've added an antenna. Anyone know what the other two are for? Any help or advice would be great, thank you. Andy
