Hey, I'm an old guy and the first to admit I'm not exactly tech savvy but can someone help me in finding the Address book for the Navigation System and how to add addresses? First of all I would like to add my home address. Thanks in advance. Also if there is a link please point this dummy in the right direction.

I can't help but I can tell you that just looking at Google maps I found a route that cut my time in half on a 60 mile rush hour trip yesterday. If I followed my navigation I would have hit traffic from start to finish but my way kept moving the whole time.

With results like that and some frustration with the voice command, I avoid relying on my navigation as much as possible.

If there is any chance of traffic, you are going to save time by not driving, finding your own route that avoids the worst spots and then start your trip with a good plan.

What I've been doing is starring addresses in Google maps on my smart phone. It gives me a good idea of relative locations and that is the key to finding efficient routes.

I didn't want the built-in Nav system. It was the only option I didn't want. I ended up with it because it was on a car that was already on the ground. I got X-plan pricing so it was a bit cheaper than MSRP. Now that I have I have used it a few times and I have been happy with it. It does warn you of traffic and construction along your planned route so it's better than most of the built-in systems I have used in the past. It's no Google maps, and certainly won't be updated as often as systems available on smart phones, but it is a very usable system IMO.

Thanks guys. That was too easy. I was trying to do it using voice recognition and getting no where. And yeah I really didn't want "NAV" either but it can come in handy and now that I have it I'm determined to learn how to use it. While on vacation I can definitely see how it could come in handy.

What might be of some help? In the Google Play Store for Android phones, there is a My Ford Touch Guide simulator app. It is quite helpful.
