Update Your Navigation Unit With a SD Card

A Ford navigation SD card provides your GPS system with up-to-date information about local attractions and roadmaps. You can find affordable SD cards on eBay. Here are some things you should know before buying a Ford navigation SD card for your Ford vehicle.

Are there different types of navigation systems?

There are two types of navigation systems for your Ford. A portable navigation unit can be easily mounted. You do not need any dash modifications or wiring. These units can also be transferred from one vehicle to another. A portable unit is attached to your dashboard with a suction cup. This cup can secure to the dash, windscreen, or console. In order to power it, you need to plug it into your power port. The device has housing that contains the GPS antenna, and the maps are pre-programmed into the memory system. This system uses a built-in speaker to deliver voice commands to the driver. Some models even have extra features, such as MP3 playback.

The second type of navigation system is an in-dash model. These models are connected to the in-dash DVD player. The player functions as a stereo system and even uses touchscreen controls. The in-dash navigation system has a larger screen than a portable unit. This feature offers better map visibility for the driver. The voice directions and prompts are delivered through the speaker system. The in-dash system has built-in hard drives that include maps and navigation functions. SD cards are used to temporarily store route and map information.

What type of information is on a Ford navigation SD?

A navigation system frees you up to explore an area without having to consult a map. The SD card stores road maps and other navigation tools. Your card will have important updates about hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, gas stations, banks, and ATMs. Your navigation system also calculates the best traffic route for you. It can provide real-time information to avoid areas with high traffic and construction zones. You can use this information to travel around town or to your favourite holiday spot.

What brands make a Ford navigation SD card?

There are many SD cards on the market that you can use with your navigation system. These cards can provide you with information to reach your destination in a timely matter. You can even use the system to find a restaurant or hotel. These SD manufacturers include the following:

  • Garmin
  • TomTom
  • Lowrance
