I wonder what kind of navigation maps you have. I have a 2017 and I still have not had an update to my navigation maps. Lots of things wrong! Donít use it. Incredibly frustrating. Iíll never get a NAV system from Ford again.

You have to order updated Sync maps.Pull out your navigation SD card to see which one u have currently.I find EBay to have the best prices.

The 2017 does not have an SD card. It is updated directly from Ford. Thatís the problem. Iíve called Ford directly about it.

Welcome to the FORD world

We have a 2013 F-150 FX4 SuperCrew Lariat 'Heavy Duty' max tow and love it. Best TW we have ever owned (IMO)

The factory installed GPS systems, in theory, only have to be supported for seven years just like the other parts of the vehicle. My Honda motorcycle lost factory update service at five years and I had to go to third party and then finally a handlebar mounted Garmin GPS.

My 2007 Mercedes ML320 CDI GPS map was last updated in 2015 for $249.00 with no other options available going forward. I use a Garmin RV GPS dash mounted when towing.

Also if I buy one on the lot I’m going to demand they discount the price of it off the top after I’ve negotiated the price down. They are not going to sell me that piece of junk.

There is no removable SD cards in the factory installed Ford Nav system. You have to updated it through the built in settings program.
And yes the Ford maps suck and make sure you have a back up with you.

I've been fine with the maps on my 2017 F150 so far but when traveling I generally use Apple Play and Google Maps or Apple Maps (both work). The only downside is that in that configuration you cannot see the outside temperature, which I wanted when I was towing in the winter.

That being said, I do not know why GPS systems in the trucks do not recognize when you are towing and give you additional choices or restrictions built into the suggested route. It should not be difficult to do.

Ford sells map updates starting every year for $150. They only update the maps themselves: new roads, changes etc. not a regular necessity.

If there is a concern with the way nav functions that can be addressed with an update to the SYNC module which is located in the APIM module. These will update the SYNC 3.X software to the latest version. The software is supported under the original manufacturers warranty, three years, 36,000 mile base warranty.

Any Ford or Lincoln dealer will/should update sync for you for free. You need to give them a symptom... Nav does not work properly, phone drops calls etc. If you are out of original warranty then there will be a slight charge .3 to .5 hours approximate.

Our 2012 Ram 2500HD Cummins has the last $150 GPS map update and it was a 2017 version. That was less than four years after the build date. I use a Rand McNally 730 RV GPS model when towing.

What they donít tell you is you have to take truck in every couple of years for software updates.
