    Hello and Welcome.

    Unfortunately, reading through this thread, there doesn't seem to be foreign maps for th Ford Raptor's navigational system. Hopefully that will change soon seeing how the Raptor is growing in international popularity. Dubi for example has a very good sizable offroad scene for example.

    I wonder if contacting SVT directly would help?

    For the guys looking for the maps in the middle east.

    Go to your Ford dealer and see if you can find this part number CR3Z10E987AA

    I did a search in the official Ford parts website, and came up as navigation, but it did not say what region.

    It appears to be the part number for the dvd needed for the maps for the middle east. Not sure if it works for the 2013 because they use a SD card.

    Good luck guys.

    Raptors are sold by Middle East Ford dealers since 2010 and most of them came with built in GPS with the Middle East maps, the ones we are talking about are bought personally from the US as used not new that's why they have US maps,
    I think that the SD card or the CD containing the Middle East maps can be copied and used in those trucks I am trying to find any F150 with middle east Navi here and try to copy the maps if it works Ill let you know

    here, on frf
    im guessing that it wass not ford or microsoft or sony that made the nav data for that area. im guessing someone learned how to get into the system to modify the map data and was able to make the info work.

    The system is made by Ford and this is not new most of the Ford cars and truck sold in this area that comes with built in Navi have the Middle East maps on them the attached photo is for the Navi module I took this picture last night from 2012 Raptor that have a Navi with Middle East maps
    I copied the maps on the SD card and now I'll order the module. All I have to do is connect it to the unit and insert the SD card in the slot, this should make it work

    Look behind the glove box if you see a black box with a slot then you only need the SD card if not you have to install the Navi module part no. AA5D-10E88-AB

    as you can see in the GCC spec if you ntice there is a small button on the side written on it NAV u dont press on it u just wipe your finger and the navi will start the menu kinda different even the tone of it when you click on the corners comands is different tone and on the top right corner in place of navi its as Information.

    i forgot to mention that when i play a song and the name of the song and singer is written arabic it dispays it and when i want to reply to a msg i rceived i also can edit the msg and write it in arabic with the arabic keybord i will post other photos of it later
