I was wondering if it is possible to get the OEM navigation to allow you to enter stuff while driving. Thanks

Haha. Nope! Even the Sync Destinations app will not let you use it while driving. You have to be doing less than five miles per hour.

It's retarded. You can go through your phone book, your music library, etc. But no navigation.

Darn I'm ordering an fx4 on Monday I guess I won't get the GPS and invest in an aftermarket unit like a high end Kenwood.

I don't know about the 2013 Nav systems, but in my wife's 2012 Explorer Limited we had a lock-pick installed which allows full use of system while driving. Made it a lot easier for the wife to put in / look up addresses while I was driving when we were house hunting.

It is a drawback, but I do like how everything is integrated. I have not owned a vehicle before with this type of system. Love not having to lug around another piece of equipment.

2013 FX4 Sterling Gray, 3.55 gears, Rino liner, Bed extender - bone stock -for now......

You can do everything except a destination. You can search for poi and other stuff. But it won't let you enter the turn by turn menu

If I could do it over again, I would nix the nav. A portable Garmin is a better nav unit.

Also the upgraded stereo they make you get with it is not really that nice IMO.

I agree about Garmin, I got a Kenwood 9990hd in my car already, it uses Garmin.

On a side note I'm going to look into this lock pick.

Thanks guys

I can confirm this as well. This is what I use.

To make it easy. I like easy. Using the smart phone app SYNC destinations. Send the destination to Travel Link Services.

Get in the truck start it, press the voice button. Say SERVICES, the system connects tells me that SYNC destinations has sent me a destination would I like to use it? Say YES. Travel Link sends the destination to the truck. Once complete, hit the voice button, say SET AS DESTINATION. Done. Takes about 30 seconds start to finish, never touching the screen or being inhibited by any lock out mode.

I've done the voice command to a destination city, then street address by using the voice command with mix results.

I've had the NAV unit not locate the address. Then I have get to tossing explitives of which the SYNC system oddly can't comprehend. Had to get a Travel Link operator on the phone to send the address I wanted to the system. Likely the NAV SD card version 1.4 isn't as up to date as it needs to be.

I'm sure there are other ways to voice command it by using previous destinations in the NAV unit itself.

That's just ne more reason I chose to NOT get the factory nav system.

Love my Garmin (Zumo 665 for my motorcycle... or anything else, like my truck)
