Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the MLT standard on the 2014 MKZ?  If so, just drop by your dealers parts department and pick up/order the Navigation SD Card (current is A5).  Of course, you will have to also give them around $800.00 for it, and have them activated the navigation function.  (Don't quote me on any of this.  LOL )  :)

I am currently working to see what all needs to be performed to make this a possibility, inserting the A5 card simply is not enough. I do believe the cars without Nav, did ship with all essential hardware (global positioning module) due to observation, if you click on the INFORMATION quadrant on the MLT, then select the button that says WHERE AM I? There is no map, obviously, but it does give you your exact longitude and latitude, and also changes as you drive. Give me a week or so to play with this and see what I can come up with (which modules need reprogrammed, flashed, etc....) I will report back with news either way. I know many that have a vehicle that was purchased without it would like to be able to add it later, or at least know that it could be if desired.

You'd have to have the dealer add the "app" for navigation, which I am sure they will charge you the retail/invoice price for... and then figure out how to get Ford to "unlock" the system that is coded to your VIN... ;) Edited by Davisjl

I agree, $800 is ridiculous.
