I can confirm that it IS possible to upgrade our FE's to have NAV and there's no funny business from LockPick, or any other aftermarket stuff.
I bought Turbonium911's salvaged 2013 FE APIM module with NAV, and it's plug and play! I have a 2013 FE SE that came stock without NAV, and after talking to the dealer, and surfing through the forums here, it seemed like Ford had our hands tied in keeping us from upgrading our FE's. Ergo, THIS IS EXCITING!
All you do is disconnect your battery, remove the front center trim around the MFT, remove the screen and APIM, swap the APIM, and put everything back together and reconnect the battery. *** My FE has almost 60K miles, so my warranty is out the window. If you do this, it may void some warranties, but if you're like me and you have nothing to lose, it's no worries
If you're interested, here's a solid guide video on how to pop up the trim:
*** He removes the connector from the negative terminal, but it's easier to unbolt the negative lead from the ground location on the underside of the FE's hood hinge....our FE's have the battery so close to the firewall, I don't think he really used a FE for the segment where the battery is disconnected, haha.
Please see the images below.
In the images is the NAV A5 SD card for the US and Canada. When you reconnect the battery terminal, SYNC does a complete reboot. You need to reload your contacts and pair your blutooth again, but it's totally worth it! It says to insert the NAV card and it auto updates. The rest is up to you to customize HOME, FAVORITES, etc!!!!
