New Truck, GPS Question

I traded in my 2008 F250 6.4 for this a 2013 F250 6.7 last weekend. It has been fun to drive and the power is amazing. The 6.4 had good power but was a dog off the start, the 6.7 is much better off the start.

One question, the GPS can't keep up, when I drive for a few miles the location shown on the map is behind where I actually am and the further I drive the farther off it gets. I did change my tires from a 275/65 R18 to a 275/70 R18 but I had the dealer do their adjustment for the tire change and they said that would fix it, but it didn't.

Anyone else have that issue?

Here is a pic.

Congrats on the new truck... not so much on the MFT (My Ford Touch) system...

While ford's trucks are great, there are legions of post on the net about how bad the mft and sync are....

I had a 2012 250 with the older nav and it was much better than the current generation in both the Explorer Sport and the Platinum 350 we have now...

Sorry if it seems I'm bashing ford, but actually I'm bashing ALL mfg's nav systems...
I've had 5 different vehicles with recent mfg nav systems and they've all been utter failures.

The $250 garmins with lifetime maps and traffic are light years ahead of them...
(but they should be since that is their ONLY product whereas the mfg's nav's are just a add ons for them !)

make video's of the issues and bring it back to the dealer - the 3.51 version of the nav is their latest, but still buggy !
