Poor Navigation System
By barridale on


2013 Ford Focus Titanium 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


I purchased a 2013 FORD FOCUS
Nov 2012 and took the optional navigation system because I needed it. Since the firsr time I used the system it did not fuction properly. It is inaccurate placing the vehicle location on either a different street or driving through backyards. When the destination is right ahead at 50 yards the system tells to turn left then right at the next street to reach the destination.

The whole software was updated as well as the new version SD card installed. The second time the service dept liasoned with FORD but never

Best Features

received an answer back. I then called customer service at FORD and spent twenty minutes explaining the problem. All was noted down and I was given a case id # and a promise that a supervisor would call me in 5 days. Ten days later I recalled FORD and despite the fact that I had a case id # I spent twenty minutes again going over the whole thing again.

Worst Features

despite me telling her to write all this info in the file it could not be found the next time I called FORD. Another twenty minutes wasted. The 3 rd agent said go back to the dealership. He too didn't know much either because he asked me that I SHOULD ALSO PUT IN THE STARTING POINT and the DESTINATION point.. The nav system only works when I start up the car but DON”T MOVE. I had a nav system in my 2010 f150 which not only worked but had many usefull features that this 3 year newer system does not.
