    2013 Explorer (Sync 2) nav upgrade

    Posted by Larry Freer on Feb 4th 2021

    Easy to install, recommend the dash trim removal tool to make it even easier. Works flawlessly and looks great. If you want to get NavTraffic from SirusXM you'll need to call their support line and insist on being escalated several times. It took me 90 minutes but they eventually got it turned on. Just be persistent and use the wording in the documentation 4D TEch provides.

    Posted by David Suttie on Sep 2nd 2019

    Very pleased with the unit and service you provided, only thing was that I wasn't able to receive 50 dollar return core on original unit. It was very easy to remove and re-install new unit. Thank you for your service and I will highly recommend your company to all. D J Suttie

    APIM with NAV upgrade 2011 Explorer

    Posted by Don Hartley on Jun 10th 2019

    Works exactly as stated on the website. Ford dealer charged $129 for diagnostic and wouldn’t upgrade the NAV system. They stated it wouldn’t work. Estimate another $1000 to buy , install and program an APIM with no NAV. I saved $200 , never programmed a thing and it took 8 minutes. Order the plastic tool set for the trim. I am very happy with myself.

    Welcome upgrade for failing module

    Posted by Tim on Apr 25th 2018

    This was an incredibly easy to perform upgrade that my dealer was quoting a significant markup to perform. My touch screen was having issues not booting up for days at a time, and when it was on I was having Bluetooth issues and usb connection issues with my iPhone. The original module did not include nav, so for way less than my dealer was charging to replace the unit like-for-like, I was able to add the nav with this replacement. I literally had this unit swapped in and up and running in less than 10 minutes. The instructions were clear and I had zero issues. It has worked flawlessly since install, I didn’t even require me to reprogram my Sirius channels/favorites. A welcome update included is that when the backup camera is in use, and I am close to something, the screen flashes green in the area where you are close to hitting something. The module I replaced only beeped. I can’t recommend this product enough!
