    Deep Sleep Mode?

    The truck should shut the interior lights off after a short period of time. We go upstate NY every other week and I'm often packing the truck over a period of 20-30 minutes as we gather stuff. I just leave the gate open in the garage and after maybe 15 or 20 minutes all the interior lights are off.

    New Navigator Arrived

    I'll try and upload a few pics but this forum is wonky. I'm in NY- where are you? D9090585-00C8-44B3-9B79-0B7A09B25A94.heic 1C5FB48B-9D25-419B-9E0F-DB95A06882D2.heic

    New Navigator Arrived

    We have virtually twin trucks. I have a 2019 BL L in white with chalet. I really do love the truck. Great choice in truck and colors!

    1500 Miles In - Thoughts So Far

    Congrats on the ride- I have a similar setup. The 22's certainly shudder over rough roads, drive the same truck with 20's and it's much smoother. Our escalade was much rougher though. I love the interior- I really wouldn't change anything. The one major glaring issue is the infotainment system. It sucks. I guess if you have only had Fords/Lincolns in the past you are used to it, but for those of us who have had just about any other brand it's horrible. Why can't you have more than 6 presets on that huge screen- you literally have to switch a screen and radio station to get to more presets- that's absurd. And why can't you have FM and XM mixed together on the same preset screen? The volume thing is dumb too. And whenever I'm in CarPlay and the massaging seats go off or something it goes to the seat screen and stays there. I think whoever designed it is a lifetime Ford'er and has never been in another vehicle.

    Finally put order in ...

    Congrats! I have a 2019 BL white with chalet- I love the combo. I think you will really love the truck.

    2018 with 21 way seats experiencing a squeaky seat.

    I also have this squeak. The top portion of the seat is sort of suspended and allows for front to back movement- it's that movement that seams to trigger it. When I head in for service I plan on having that addressed as well as the steering wheel that never remembers it's proper position...

    Smooth or Rough - What do owners say

    We traded in a 2016 ESV for a 2019 Nav black label L. The Nav has a much smoother ride than the ESV but the tradeoff is it isn't quite as sporty. It still does have the typical 22" bounce when hitting a rough patch but overall it is quiet, smooth and refined on the road...

    Massage Timeout?

    My 2019 (built march 2019) also times out (and so do all other manufacturers I have had massaging seats in). What I find more annoying it when it does timeout and you get the on screen message the screen fails to go back to where it was prior to the message, such as if you are using waze it doesn't go back to waze it just leaves the seat screen on.
  9. I have a 2019 BL with the Chalet theme. We have 3 kids aged 6-14 and a giant schnauzer. We go on road trips to our upstate lake house at least twice a month. I haven't had any issues keeping it clean (and my wife is not a clean vehicle keeper if you know what I mean). My car is always spotless, hers not so much. So aside from finding the occasional unintentional science experiment I clean the truck at least once a month at the dealer (they actually do quite a good job, they even armor all the tires!). I have only hit the seats once to get the blue from jeans off (quick leather cleaner followed by conditioner), took 5 minutes. I highly recommend the truck, it has been spectacular (and blows away our old 2016 Escalade platinum ESV). If you are getting stuck on price join the Mustang club of America - you will immediately qualify for X plan which gives you roughly $5500 off sticker.

    2020 Lincoln Navigator Order Guide

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong- I use Waze in CarPlay. To get back to radio you have to get out of waze, scroll one page over and select lincoln then that gets you back to audio. Is there another way of using waze? I don't know why they don't let you continue scrolling to other presets when in say XM. Now you have to load the next set of presents. I mean, come on- just go the the next set lol. I listen to a local station on FM that play classic rock and have a great morning show. And I'm often in the Hudson Valley which has a fantastic station WRRV.

    2020 Lincoln Navigator Order Guide

    Agreed on the panel alignment. Every time I fill the gas tank I look down the truck and you can see the front fender sticking out a good 1/4" from the door. One thing I really want fixed is with the audio controls. Right now I can't have XM and FM stations on the same preset "line". So you have to select XM to get to your XM presets and FM to get to your FM presets. Then if you have more than 6 presets you have to select a different preset menu to access those presets. Talk about annoying and dangerous. If you are using Waze it's 6-7 steps to change the radio station! And yes you can use the steering controls to change stations- but only within the current 6 presets you have selected.
  13. After 5 Escalades a Denali and a GL we have decided to switch over to a Navigator. There really is no comparison between the current generation Escalade and the new Nav. They really leapfrogged with this one. We never really liked the latest gen ESV but there really wasn't a second choice up until now. So yesterday we ordered a black label L- white with alpine espresso using the X plan discount. Looking forward to getting the truck but the wait will be long!
