      is there a way to know which maps are installed? I've checked the system and other than the version can't get much more.

      I'd like cross a few borders so I want to make sure which maps are installed and which ones aren't so I can buy the missing ones. It's a 2017 sync3 explorer limited.

      There are no map updates available to buy. And your maps are about 4 years old right now :(

      What boarders? If you are talking about states and into Canada you should have no problem because the entire US and Canada are installed on the system. They are about 4 years old right now but should work for most of the major roads.

      It looks like the correct maps are installed. What boarders are you talking about?

      Is it SA or NA...SA would probably mean South American Maps. NA is North American Maps

      Where are you located? As Jason mentioned, the "SA" designation is for South America. Have you checked your Sync account to see if there is an update for V2.3? I was on V2.0 and had the V2.3 update available and installed it.

      2016 and 2017 Explorers are totally different nav systems. Comparing apples to oranges.

      Umm..OK...but not germane to what I stated. Someone had stated with their 2016 that the maps were 4 years old and there were no updates.

      My concern is that with my new 18 being delivered in a few weeks I would be getting old maps too.

      See the following post for map version info. Note that Ford does not supply the map info. SYNC 3 latest version

      Not sure if this has been posted.

      Map Info for SYNC3 (check your "ABOUT" screen under "GENERAL")

      NA 1 16 means maps from Oct 2016 (typically 2018 Model year)
      NA 1 15 means maps from Oct 2015 (typically 2017 Model year)
      NA 1 14 means maps from Oct 2014 (typically 2016 Model year)

      NA = North America

      That's what Apple CarPlay and Google Maps are for. I always get cars with OEM NAV, but never use them. I found that they all stink. Best I've had was the one in my Lexus GX...other than than, they all stink.
