My Sync 2 maps are becoming out of date and I couldn’t find anything on the Ford UK web site to help regarding updates. There’s a couple of pages that offer links to information on updated maps but both go to pages that do not exist.
That doesn’t say much about the Ford website.
I discussed it with my local dealer. The response led to a long email ‘chat’ with Ford’s “Customer Care” Team.
Your local dealer will supply a new memory card with the current map set for £232. The price includes a booking of one hour in the workshop to insert it into the SD card slot under the central armrest.
I have resurrected my old £60 dashboard mounted TomTom that has fully up to date maps and free future updates for as long as it continues to work. It looks ridiculous in a car with a built-in navigation system.
Neither my local dealer nor Ford UK seems to see the stupity in the price, and have responded with a “Tough… take it or leave it” message.
Regretfully, my spouse and I have resolved that our 30+ year run of one or both of our cars being a Ford has come to an end.
there are ways to get the maps and install them to an sd card but I am not sure I’m allowed to post links i did this recently and I’m now on the F6 maps. it involves using android to run a file to get the serial number of your sdcard(all sdcards cave a unique serial number) and then running a file under windows with the sdcard inthe pc that then places a file called serial.key onto the sdcard then you add the maps which you downloaded which is a huge download 173 files in .rar format of approx 100mb each the alternative is look for F6 maps on ebay for around £50
