Most GPS will stop working if you drive outside the range of cellular towers the GPS pulls positioning data from. But with the new Ford GPS, created in partnership with Telenav and available in the new 2021 Ford F-150 and Ford Bronco, your GPS will keep navigating for you even outside of cell range.
Telenav has created a hybrid navigation system that gives you multiple routing options. When you’re within cell range, the system uses connected navigation for faster updates, traffic information, and more. The system also stores maps of thousands of off-road cites out of cellular range and switches to offline GPS using these maps when you go outside of cell range.
This technology is especially useful for drivers who do a lot of off-roading in remote forest and mountain locations, where cell signal is limited. Which is why Ford has chosen to equip the Ford F-150 truck and the Bronco SUV with the new system first, as these are two of the brand’s most popular off-roaders.
This navigation software also includes special options for when you have a trailer attached or you’re on an off-road trail. The system will take the dimensions of your trailer into account and help you safely navigate tight corners and other tricky scenarios you might encounter while towing.
Thanks to Ford, you’ll never get lost again — even when you lose cell reception. Check out the 2021 Ford F-150 and Ford Bronco equipped with the new Ford GPS technology at Greenbrier Ford in Lewisburg, WV!
