APIM module?

Hi, anyone having issues with the 2018 touchscreen nav/radio? Mine is sometimes slow to respond and "no GPS" logo? It works most of the time with no black screen issues, but occasionally it has issues. Even the compass can stay stuck? I disconnected the battery and it helped, along with turning off WI-fi and Automatic Updates. Thanks for input.

My 2018 is working as designed, hope it continues. I did the update to 19205 and had some real issues with that ordeal but now all is good. I hear the newer APIMs are having warranty issues and several have been replaced. Maybe take photos of the issues and visit the dealer? Hope yours gets straightened out soon!

Sorry I have been out of pocket, what is the 19205 update? Maybe I need it?

That sounds like the normal symptoms when the APIM is on its way out. It doesn't often black out but you get no GPS, slow response to inputs and, usaully the first evidence, bluetooth starts cutting in and out in the middle of calls. i have the issue on my 16 and it took 3 visits and 5 months before Ford would replace it as they could not get a code - even though they could see it with their own eyes! go figure.....

@wreedsvt - any reason you didn't have Ford replace it at their cost under your 3yr/36K bumper-to-bumper warranty?

I am weird and don't like them messing with my truck. I took it apart and put it back together very delicately.

Mine went bad, It would lock up and be really slow. Ford first tried to reload it and then later they just replaced it.
