2022 Ford Bronco Factory Navigation Removal Details Revealed

In early April, Ford Authority reported that the 2022 Ford Bronco would be losing factory navigation starting in May, yet another byproduct of the semiconductor chip shortage. Now, according to a dealer memo recently seen by Bronco Nation, the details surrounding the removal of Ford’s Connected Navigation and Connected Built-In Navigation have been revealed.

Beginning today, May 30th, dealer stock orders will be built without Connected Navigation and Connected Built-In Navigation, though customer orders will continue to be equipped with these features. Connected Navigation – which is included in the Mid Package – includes features such as a 90-day trial and subscription navigation, Pinch-to-Zoom Capability, Live Traffic, Predictive Destinations and Route Guidance, One Box Search, Embedded Voice, and future use of the FordPass Performance App, which has faced a bit of a delay as Ford works through its kinks.

Meanwhile, Connected Built-In Navigation – which is available on the Mid and High Packages and comes standard on the Lux Package – includes a three-year trial and subscription navigation, Pinch-to-Zoom Capability, Live Traffic, Predictive Destinations and Route Guidance, One Box Search, Embedded Voice, and the future use of the FordPass Performance App. Affected buyers will receive a credit of $50 for the loss of Connected Navigation or $695 for Connected Built-In Navigation.

This change will likely affect only a small percentage of 2022 Ford Bronco models given the fact that the automaker’s production capacity for the model year is already maxed out, prompting it to stop taking orders back in late February. The Bronco remains one of the fastest-selling new vehicles on the market, while deals on the rugged SUV are non-existent at this point in time.

We’ll have more on the Bronco soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Bronco news and continuous Ford news coverage.

    Would like to read about the new hybrid system, but more than the marketing hype… an engineering perspective, possibility written by a Ford engineer involved in the development. The system appears to contain a lot of conceptual thinking, performance-driven by the consistent torque of an electric motor, less demanding cruising demands filled by relatively small ICE?

    Who needs factory nav when Android auto and carplay are supported? Factory nav systems have always sucked anyway.

    That’s great information on not dropping the factory navigation on customer! We order those options to personalize our vehicles for enhanced enjoyment and brand loyalty.
    Thank you!

      Hopefully you’ll follow suit with the Factory Navigation and provide the Factory Signature Headlights as well. If we wanted to apply aftermarket systems, we would’ve ordered a lower optioned or base Bronco.

    I agree with Step (May 31, 2022 at 7:45 AM) why does anyone need it? ALL vehicle manufacturers should eliminate more of the electronics that are a distraction to driving. The smarter vehicle get, the less drivers are pay attention to driving. And all the electronics just mean there are more piece/parts to fail. I’ll take a dumb vehicle with knobs, switches and manual ignition key any time.
