Re: Navigation System - Escape Hybrid
I am updated! NAVTEQ had the update available on their site. Really surprised me, as I had checked their site a couple weeks back. If you order ONLINE from them, when you receive the discs you will have to call them for a "license key." The final cost with s&h was just over $229 usd. The two discs have the mapping and the Gracenote, it DID take just over THREE HOURS to update the system, and I had the engine turned on all the time, per instructions. Doesn't mean the gas engine has to be running just start the car, and leave it alone till done, it will do the usual shut down thing - no sweat.
Some of the missing roads are now there, and it seems to operate very well.
*** In the information of the system of your vehicle, you will need to find the:
APPLICATION number, you will need it to do the ordering, and when you call for your license key, they will want your VIN.***
Hope all goes well for all others.
Note to Ford, you missed out on charging me tech time and making a little profit on those discs. Find out who dropped the ball, and give them you know what.
