Sat Nav Update

26 posts in this topic

To give them the benefit of the doubt, OZFord may have been forced into this by the Ford USA dictators.

Either way, it is bad move and puts a black mark on Ford's ability to provide cars with a good Nav & management system.

We had one of our fleet - 2014 XR6 FG2 updated at North Harbour Ford (North Shore City, Auckland). The service manager & workshop manager both knew how to do it and charged us at cost - NZ$375.00 - I got the impression they didn't think it was value for money.

However the end result is appallingly outdated. Changes - some intersections are now continual roads with a sharp bend, some slow bends are now intersections!!!!, Some road updates are in but many major highways are not -  even though they were in the planning process since 2007 - 2010.

We have a case for action under the fair trading act but it's not worth it for the cost. Consequently, we will not be updating our other FG2 and won't buy any more Fords
