How to Update Your Navigation System Map

Updating the System

Each year, a new navigation system map update is released to provide access to the latest information. A lot can change in 12 months, and in the last three years over 1.2 million miles of new roads have been added to the navigation system map. That’s in addition to 1.5 million miles of updated roads and thousands of new points of interest.

To purchase a Ford map update, visit the Ford map update site. Select your vehicle model and year from the dropdown menu and the appropriate update will appear. Add the map update to your cart and proceed to checkout.

Note: You may need to enter your vehicle’s application number during the purchase process. You can find the application number by pressing the information button (“I”) in your vehicle and selecting “System Info.” Depending upon your model and year, the map update will be issued on either a disc or an SD card.

From weekend road trips to daily commutes, you’ll be able to drive with confidence knowing you have the most up-to-date information. Update your Ford navigation system map today.
