2022 Bronco Navigation Removal –– What’s Coming

In early April, rumors swirled that Ford was removing the Bronco’s factory navigation system from customer orders. Order holders were concerned, and Ford stepped in to put the speculations to bed. Jiyan Cadiz, Manager, North American Passenger Vehicle Communications, told Carscoops that “[the] 2022 Ford Broncos will continue to be built with navigation.”

Now, Ford has sent dealers a communication detailing Connected Navigation and Connected Built-In Navigation removal, and Bronco Nation saw a copy.

The Details

Beginning May 30th, dealer stock orders will be built without Connected Navigation and Connected Built-In Navigation. Customer retail orders are not affected at this time.

Lost Connected Navigation (currently included on Mid Package) functionalities will include:

  • 90-day trial and subscription navigation
  • Pinch-to-Zoom Capability
  • Live Traffic
  • Predictive Destinations and Route Guidance,
  • One Box Search
  • Embedded Voice
  • Future use of the FordPass Performance App

Lost Connected Built-In Navigation (currently standard on Lux Package and available on Mid and High Packages) functionalities will include:

  • 3-year trial and subscription navigation
  • Pinch-to-Zoom Capability
  • Live Traffic
  • Predictive Destinations and Route Guidance
  • One Box Search
  • Embedded Voice
  • Future use of the FordPass Performance App

To compensate for the removal of these features, buyers will get a credit to MSRP of $50 for connected navigation and $695 for connected built-in navigation. In both situations, third-party navigation apps like Google Maps used via Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto will not be affected and can continue being used.

In our opinion, the loss of FordPass Performance App future use on these dealer stock Broncos may be the most painful part of this news. The app is coming this year and is said to bring many interesting features. However, some customers have gotten used to using trail tools like Gaia and onX in the meantime, and these workarounds may lessen the sting for those who won’t have the FPP app capability.

For customers who want Connected Navigation or Connected Built-In Navigation and are waiting on your Bronco, stay close to Bronco Nation news and forums. We’ll continue to do our best to bring you updates and advice that help you as you wait.

  1. To be clear, customer retail orders are not affected? For example, my order/reservation placed nearly two years ago that includes the Lux package will not be affected. It is slated for build the week of June 13th.

    1. You’re correct. Customer retail orders are not affected. I’m excited for you; you’re almost there!
