Don't get the navigation system

I love my Escape Hybrid with one major exception. The navigation system is the worst piece of electronic equipment I have ever owned. It will not allow the user to input anything except at an absolute stop. The processor is so slow that the map is unable to move when the vehicle is in motion. Instead, the arrow on the map jumps for a few seconds, then the map jumps to catch up. The user interface is so bad that it is very difficult to even get a destination into the system. The screen is so small that you need a magnifying glass to see it. So much for Ford's motto about "Innovation". The best thing they could do is fire the electronics engineers and buy an aftermarket Alpine system.
Fire the electronics Engineers that designed the navigation system. Contract with a real innovative company to design a navigation system like every other manufacturer has.
