    It's not Waze. I haven't even installed that yet. I'm positive it has factory nav. They messed up on the build, but least it's a good mess up!

    I agree that Google Maps with Android Auto in my case probably better then the factory nav, but it's nice to have available if you don't want to mess with plugging in your phone or your out in the boonies with a poor cell signal.

    Sorry I was replying to Roofhopper who linked to Waze on SYNC3. I was noting that you had factory Nav, not Waze.

    Hi,

    There are a coupe things that will occasionally happen. With demand so high on the new Ranger, there might be a supplier shortage of some parts, like the 14401 main wiring harness, so to continue building, there may have been a "fall back" plan to continue production and that would be to add a feature to keep the line moving...Does not happen frequently, but unlikely you are the only example of this build...It is not a misbuild for sure, but likely not many built with a modified build sheet. You will never know the story behind the build though as this is not frequently released to the public. I got a 1975 F150 with dual tanks even though I ordered only a single tank...reason...ran out of single tank pickup box sides...

    Enjoy your new Ranger!

    I think mine has the exact same options, but the NAV is not included on the sticker.

    Wait a second..... your dash/gauge cluster looks entirely different from my Lariet. I had no idea there were different dash layouts. I actually kinda like yours better.

    Yes the XLT gets a Engine RPM gauge on the left-hand side.

    Yes everything works just fine. I'm going to assume that adaptive cruise and navigation even though packaged together as an option work as independent systems in the vehicle.
