Got this off another forum. Thanks to wiingnut
My nav now allows me to access POI's while the vehicle is in motion. You will not find this on internet. I finally found out at work.

Here we go!

1. Take vehicle outside and agree to nav instructions. The gps needs to know its position.

2. Push hard nav button (on right side of radio). Go to your address book. Pick any of one of your saved addresses. Now that address is highlighted, look to right and push soft edit button. You will now see name of saved address.

3. Clear name of saved address and type in F-DEVELOP ON
(make sure to put space between DEVELOP and ON).

4. Now look to the upper left corner and you will see the word ADDRESS. Place your finger directly under the A and hold. If you do this right, the screen should change to the map screen.

5. Now push your hard menu button (on left side of radio). Across top of radio push soft SECURITY button. You have now entered security screen. You will see nothing in the lower right most corner of nav screen. Push your finger and hold in that position till the screen changes.

6. You now have entered a parameter screen. Locate DRIVING RESTRICTIONS release. When you push the button it should change to driving restrictions stop. Exit the screen by pushing the soft BACK button.

7. Congrats you have just programmed your factory nav radio. NOTE: Every time you turn your vehicle off, you will need to repeat steps 5 & 6.

Good luck and enjoy. If you choose to monkey around with your other parameters, do so at your own risk. I will not be responsible for your dealer service call. If you have any further questions, please pm me and I will do my best to help. This programming sequence should work for only the so called first generation navs. It will not work in the MY09, second generation. This has been used to reprogram many MY 07 and MY 08 Ford vehicles.

Now my info and question:
Something cool - once you do the above instructions:
Press the sensor mode info button


Then it will bring up this screen. Touch any of the round dials, and you can select their function from the buttons on right.

How to get this info to display on the screen? The Pioneer AVIC units (which is what this nav system is) will allow this info to be displayed on the screen




There are a few pages of menu items. Who has an explanation of what they do?
For example - what is bound box display flag?

Nevermind I got off my A** and did it. It works!!!! I felt like I was casting a spell on my navigation system :hump !!! I was hitting non existant buttons on a grey screen and it worked. Some little asian dude probably invented that think and thought he was the smart one hahaha.

Its awsome!

So now when I turn on my Nav I will have to do this?

Access POI's while the vehicle is in motion

Offshore1 - Great info. Thanks.

I "second" the question by Rene G. Is there anyway to do this mod on the newer nav units, 2009+?

Also, is there any easy way to be certain (besides the vehicle year) of which nav unit is installed?

2009+ Nav System - Video in Rear View Mirror

Everything I've read says the 09 and newer units are going to need a Lockpick, from Coastaletech.
Nice! Simple but powerful. Good tip.

I also have a small video monitor in the rear view mirror that I would like to enable. I believe this is common for trucks that had a backup camera but not an in-dash NAV system. I have the in-dash unit, but would ALSO like to enable the monitor in the mirror and have it echo the in-dash display. Any ideas?

I wonder if anyone knows more about the other features when you enter this menu?
Also there is another diagnostic mode when you hold buttons 3 and 6 together

I know it only works on the '07 & '08 Navi units.
