There can be several causes for this problem. A bad antenna for the NAV unit or a weak Identity from the transponder can cause this problem. I do not know the statistics on the failure rate for this.
I would contact Ford for assistance on this one. You are talking about Satellite communications. This is new Technology and you don't want to buy the transponder box for want of a good antenna. Somewhere there has to be Proprietary Analyzers or a self-Diagnostic Mode to test your unit.
Some other Expert may have more Experience fixing this problem. I have a 2011 F150 with the same NAV so I know what you are using. It is imperfect. There are times it will say there is no data or I am out of range.
What this means is there is no record of the street you are on. It is not always a matter of Signal strength, or the Antenna. Not all roads were programmed or referenced.
Also what you will find is the UPDATE charge for more recent maps. They want your money for this and you may not even be out of a Lease yet.

You have a defective NAV system, pull it out and send it in for repair or.... Just use your cell phone's Google maps app for navigation, it is far better then any car nav system.

I bought a used 2008 ford f450. The nav sys says to clean the disk. How can I find the pin code that the original owner set up. There are no owners manuals.


This is from page 38 of the navigation system manual. I hope it is the right one for your system:

" If the PIN is forgotten, you
can disable Valet Mode by disconnecting the battery or removing the
appropriate fuse for one minute to reset the system."

Here is a link to the manual:

Reset sat nav


I think you will need to reprogram not reset your unit. If the units built-in you probably need to see a dealer. If its aftermarket maybe you can find the manuel, wait for it.......on the internet

Where is the fuse panel for a 2005 ford focus four door


Passenger compartment fuse panel
The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering wheel by
the brake pedal. Remove the CD stowage box to access the fuses.
To remove a fuse, use the fuse puller tool provided on the power
distribution box cover located in the engine compartment.

Power distribution box
The power distribution box is located in the engine compartment. The
power distribution box contains high-current fuses that protect your
vehicle’s main electrical systems from overloads.

For this and other details can check the 2005 Ford Focus - Owners Manual (page 148 and next).

Hope help with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.

Denso navigation problem


I had the same problem, and then I figured it out. I unhooked the dvd rom opened up the unit and noticed there were resistors on the board which were burned out and the inside of the housing showed slight signs of oxidation. I came to the conclusion that since the unit was mounted in the trunk the unit malfunctioned from water intrusion or moisture, which shorted out the board. Now I'm searching the web to see if I can find a Denso repair facility.

Nav system


Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.
  2. Touch the Map Database Information screen button.
  3. Touch the Eject Map Disc screen button. The screen tilts, exposing the map DVD slot.
  4. Press the eject button, located next to the DVD map disc slot, and the disc ejects. Pull the disc out. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
