  1. Was at the dealer recently getting an Aviator for my niece. Dealer saw my 18 Nav and asked if I’d be willing to trade it in for a 20. We did some preliminary numbers and it looks like my payment would drop a little if I do the deal (36 month lease on both vehicles, 20 has same feature set as I would be ordering it). Any thoughts? I’m perfectly happy with my 18. 14 months left on the lease. 20 seems largely the same as 18 and doesn’t have all the tech that the Aviator has, so maybe the 21 will. Doesn’t seem worth the hassle, but I’m thinking about it.

    2018 Navigator Sync Update

    I have 17279 (my vehicle was one of the first off the line once regular production started). Auto update and manual updates don’t work. Vehicle is going in next week for service and will see if they can update it.

    2018 Navigator Sync Update

    Nope. Automatic updates never worked since I got the vehicle and dealer says no updates available. Total fail but not surprising.

    Garmin Dash Cam Hardwire Install

    I slid the wires in between the A pillar and window. Lots of room there and then snaked to fuse box.

    Pretty sure rear seats are identical to expedition.

    2nd row car seat covers - bench?

    https://www.canvasback.com/ I know they make cargo liners and seat back covers and I’m pretty sure they have seat covers. I have used them for seat back covers for years. Very nice company and great quality products. I believe they make items to order, so if you need anything special, they hopefully can help. I wanted my seat back covers without the opening for the latch and they handled it for me. EDIT: Here are the bench seat covers: https://www.canvasback.com/index.php/bench-and-bucket-seat-covers/bench-seat-covers.html

    Turn off the Auto Start/Stop - HELP

    I have tried it a few times and still don't like it. I just got into the habit of turning that off and turning auto hold on every time I start the car. Makes me feel like a fighter pilot. 😄

    Wind noise from driver/passenger front door

    Mine comes from the passenger A pillar at speeds above 40 mph. Had it diagnosed at dealer and they were ready to replace/reseat windshield when Lincoln told them to do additional troubleshooting (meaning I have to leave vehicle there for a few days). Haven't had time to yet.

    Headrest Tablet Mount

    Have you tried ProClip? Best mount for devices - been using them for over 14 years. Never tried the headrest mounts. Not cheap, but well worth it. https://www.proclipusa.com/category/car-headrest-mounts Google for 10% off codes or sign up for 15-20% codes from time to time.

    I reiterate what I said above. Slow and laggy on 18 Nav with new iPhone XSMax and latest OS and Waze app. Have to wait after you tap the screen for a response. Not impressed.

    Noisy cooled seats

    Mine always come on whenever I remote start (app or remote). If I leave them on when I shut down, they will come on when I start the car again regardless of how I start the car. Same for heated seats. The car remembers last setting, which is great. I always hated in my Expys that I had to turn them on each time.

    Noisy cooled seats

    Unacceptably loud and not very cool, especially considering the noise. One of my first gripes as living in S Florida I hoped to use them often.

    2018 Navigator Issues...Maybe?

    I have the liftgate closing and opening on its own when Im close by issue as well as the mirror issue. The liftgate issue caused it to hit my garage door and now I have a scratch on the door. Get the feeling that its not gonna be easy to get that fixed under warranty.
  14. Its the Bluetooth causing the lag. It has nothing to do with the speed of your card. Happens when watching video directly on an iPad and using Bluetooth for audio as well. Has been happening to me for years in various vehicles, Ford and otherwise. Dont know if there is anything to be done other than using a 3.5mm cable into the aux for the audio.

    2018 Navigator - RFID Blocking Windshield?

    My community transponder sticker didn't work on the windshield. They have an external sticker that they use for motorcycles which they put on the corner of my front right headlight. Can't see it (clear sticker on the white part of the lens) and works fine.
