In car Satnav systems.

Discussion in 'Motoring' started by BillyNoMates, Apr 29, 2016.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've got a pair of Tom Toms that were used for my previous vehicles,
    and it's a simple affair to apply updates to them via the Internet, but
    how do you get updated information on to built-in versions? I'm
    assuming that the vehicle(s) have to be taken back to the dealers
    for any sort of updating.
    I switched on the Ford Focus Titanium built-in version on the way
    to work this afternoon, and by the time I had left what one would
    consider to be "normal roads" - the Satnav didn't have a fu**ing
    clue where it was! Screen was littered with nothing but big white
    dots. I shall make my own enquiries after the Bank Holiday
    weekend, but if any of you have info on this.......I'd appreciate it.

    Cheers maties,

    Billy.
     
  2. Depending on the age of the car it's either a new cd or connected up at the dealership

    With the Focus its cheaper to buy a new car. ;)
     
  4. Updates are normally provided by the wife on the very rare occasion that I
    get lost. Trouble is - she don't have an *OFF* button.

  7. I got one of them delay version's, also it tells me the quickest way to avoid traffic, when I am sat in a traffic jam?
     
  8. As long as you've bought a semi decent car: You can update it either by USB stick, connecting to your phone vie bluetooth or replacing the micro SD.
