    We have just picked up our new S-Max with Denso sat nav system.

    There is no manual and I can not find any copies on line.

    Anyone got a copy they could email or useful tricks and tips on working it?

    Many thanks

    Re: PLEASE READ FIRST! Ford satnav short FAQ

    As a new member to the forum I am very confused. I purchased new Ford Falcon G6E in 2011 that was built in Australia in 2010
    Whereismaps tell me it comes with a VDO Dayton MS5200
    Yet you say production ceased in Dec 2007? So what have Ford sold Me - some old piece of crap?
    I have been pursuing Whereismaps for version 18 of Australian maps and they keep putting me off -latest advise "wait till Oct 2012"
    Why would they even care if the GPS is that old? Clearly the market would be shrinking on such an old machine
    Where to from here - are there alternative suppliers of maps for this machine? Anyone please?

    One Eye,
    Hopefully this isn't too late a reply.
    I visited the Whereis site today and its apparently $199 for V19. Ford are of course saying there is no new update.
    I understand there may be alternative locations to get the files to go on the SD card.
    I'm looking for alternatives myself as I have just bought a used 2012 fig mk2 G6E.
