    I ordered my car with sat nav but is it really worth the extra with the fact we can sink with our phones?

    I use mine all the time going to shows. I like the large visual display. Nothing worse than trying to look at a tiny phone display when coming to a junction. Plus it’s all right in front of you too

    Ive ordered it, I think if you want to sell the car down the line a car without sat nav will be pretty undesirable.  I will probably still use my Tomtom though! Not sure if the cars satnav will do the speed cameras and traffic stuff.



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    It’s total rubbish*, won’t accept postcodes only, you have to fudge the street name if you don’t have it, otherwise it won’t let you proceed. Also took me to a Waitrose it thought had petrol when the location obviously didn’t. Handy if you’re down to 10 miles and you wasted 5 getting there!

    *be aware I am a Mac user, so incapable of operating anything pc like….

    Mike Parker , not sure if those days have gone or not (having to have satnav to sell) . To be fair that was my main reasoning to tick the box .

    well, I know if there are two identical cars available that i wish to buy, Im always going to go for the one with the sat nav, or the aircon, or whatever that makes it a better spec, its a bit like buying a Jag with cloth seats or a mercedes without cruise control ! I think sat nav is a far more important extra than a poxy heated steering wheel or heated seats in England ! Innit 😎
