Just to echo the other comments (about how it works) people have made about the factory NAV; you should not be disappointed you didn't get it.

The font and color of fonts are terrible for my old eyes; the screen is deeper from the bezel vs. the factory Nav in 08; so bezel blocks 1/8" of screen if you drive with seat forward as I sit.

My TomTom shows speed limits; well the factory NAV does too, but I have only found a couple of roads so far that it displays (and then the font is so small I can't read it).

Sync voice recognition sucks, trained or not; I can find places with touch screen but the limited forced select this using voice commands will not allow me to find POI, etc. It is more distracting all the retrying, etc. than just letting me or my passenger use the screen in motion. My 08's factory NAV was unlocked and other than getting $taken$ to upgrade maps it was great.

Good luck getting your NAV,

Bob

I put a JVC 7" screen in my '10 superduty. It worked great, and good hands free, and worked great with the new speakers and sub. When I upgraded to the '11, it came with the Nav and I thought it would be great.

It is ok, but not having updated maps is a problem in growing areas. I can't seem to get the traffic to work well, but I do like the voice commands. And it reads my text messages and replys to them just fine from my windows phone.

But I would just as soon put the JVC in again.

Advent Factory look Nav 2010 -2103, has anyone used one?

Has anybody seen or used this?
I know an installer that says they have been putting them in at the dealer. It comes with everything in the box and basically just plugs in. He says it keeps all the Sync features too.
I hear it is pricy, around $1100.00 but so is that High end Kenwood I am looking at by the time I add the adapters and dash kit. The Advent has an 8 inch screen. That's huge.

Advent : OE Multimedia Headunits : OFO1501

The only negative he had was that it won't work in the Sony systems. I am not sure but I think that's only in something like a Raptor but I may be wrong. Don't Raptors have nav at that price?

The factory NAV isn't all that bad. It certainly is not worth the price of the option, but I would order it again. Would like it better if the sirius crap was dropped and the price lowered.

One neat feature since it is tied into the truck, when you hit the low fuel warning, gas stations pop up on the map.

On the 2013 order sheet navigation is only a $900 option. Not cheap, but nowhere near as bad as some of the $2500 options and more that you see on some vehicles.
