      One thing I wish we had on out 2014 Limited was navigation. Was wondering what the options, cost to add navigation to the stock head unit that only displays a compass right now. Any help or advice would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

      cheaper and easier to use your phone, or a stand alone GPS unit.

      You can add factory navigation to your head unit for about $75 using forscan. Pretty easy to do. All you need to buy is the obd scanner and newest maps on sd card. There are a couple files you need to download to usb and install. I had it installed within 30 mins and works great.

      greylimit is right on the money. there are however, other approaches that may or may not be cheaper/easier. There are relatively inexpensive chinese made head units (not necessarily bad mind you) that run android and are directly capable of using google maps with the attachment of a usb gps module (both are found all over ebay). Some people rate them very highly. This concept is what drove me to installing something similar into my ranger, but as I do not have the double DIN opening I had to be much more creative. Looking at the overall costs for the method I described above you'd be into it about 150$ but it's as simple as wiring in a harness adapter like you would for a normal car stereo upgrade and then plugging in the usb gps module which can sit on your dash or even on the roofline.

      Can you tell what you did? I have 14 limited without nav. My wifey purchased a apmi with nav on it and I lost a lot of the things I liked " different lighting colors and rear ac controls". So I removed the apmi and placed my non-navi back into the whip. I also just downloaded the forscan to my laptop and my phone.

      Thanks for your words of wisdom
