Hello guys, This maybe a dumb question, I just dont know. Will the Navigation system still work if I have my Sirius XM turned off?
Is it powered by satellite or by the Onboard Wfi? I'd like to keep it. Wife uses it alot. This gets confusing

Thanks
Dave

My credo
If it ain't broke, break it.
I don't have a clue how Ford has that set up but that should be 2 completely independent things. GPS and satellite radio uses different satellites.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
Yes... Navigation has nothing to do with SiriusXM.

Yep, have added nav to my non-Sirius, completely separate systems.

Ford lands a full set of maps in the Sync3 then uses GPS, no wi-fi or cell connection is needed for the nav.
