The new Ford’s come with an optional upgrade MFD Multi Function Display Satellite Navigation System. They’re pretty cool, look great in the dash but at £1000-£1800 they don’t come cheap! – Some in fact don’t even do the basics like navigate via postcode which lets face it even the cheapest TomTom can handle. Others have had faults where the CD player won’t allow you to Pause/Stop a CD from playing without either making a call or turning the unit off completely.
The main problem which a lot of owners are facing is the screen failure which is common across the entire Ford range to which the units are fitted to. When they fail, Ford render the unit useless and advise that it must be replaced – if it’s replaced under warranty then you’re very lucky but otherwise it seems like a very costly replacement which makes us question whether or not it’s feasible.
Before parting with your hard earned cash, there is a very good chance that your existing unit can be repaired saving you a LOT of money. No programming, no hefty bill on a new unit and the best part is we now offer all repaired units with our Lifetime warranty – and it’s completely plug & play when the unit is returned to you.
What exactly do we do for you? – We’ll strip down your existing unit and connect it up to our uniquely purpose built test rig and bench test your unit to determine exactly where all the faults are. After the initial soak test, we will then carry out any necessary repairs, replacing any major components that are necessary including the liquid crystal display (LCD). Once the repairs have been carried out, the unit will be re-assembled and connected up to our rig for a final bench-test to determine full & complete functionality before returning it to you with our full Lifetime warranty.
There are various models of these navigational systems and even if you’re driving a different vehicle with similar issues, it’s possible that we can still help you.
