Anyway, I got a Galaxy S-II partly because I had read that it supports the Bluetooth MAP profile that allows SYNC to receive text messages. I have seen various posts about how it is necessary to turn on the MAP profile in SYNC first before SMS will work with the phone.

What I wasn't prepared for was that apparently there is no menu option to turn on the MAP profile in a 2011 nav equipped vehicle. It seems that non-nav vehicles can be upgraded from version 3.1 to version 3.2.2 to get MAP capability but nav vehicles have no such upgrade available. This is disappointing - you spend an extra $2K to get the best electronics available and yet Ford ignores us and only upgrades the basic systems.

Has anyone found out about getting a SYNC upgrade in a nav system? The most recent discussion I could find was about 10 months old so maybe things have changed?

Ford... are you listening?
Just out of curiosity, if you have the indash nav built in, can I ask why you're trying to get this to work? I understand that, it should just work as it is, but what is your specific reason?
