Navigation Question

Newbie here. Just got my F-350 PS yesterday! Its has the Ford sync with all the goodies and 8" display screen. It does not have Navigation but I was told that buried inside the thing is Navigation and it just needs to be unlocked and an SD card installed. Anyone know anything about this, how to do it etc?

Just thinking off of the top of my head here... but, if what you were told is true, but needs 'unlocking'... then that's something that will have to be programmed by the dealer.

I talked to a guy at the dealer. He said it is true but the dealer can't do it either. Its a closely guarded secret from the factory and can only be unlocked by them. Apparently its cheaper to mass produce these things by only having to make one version, then all they have to do is program it to have Navigation or not. That's also why the option is 'only' $795 and not $2000 like most other manufacturers. Everything is already there but the programming. Seems like a good hacker could get in there and unlock it but so far ...........!

Does it have an SD slot in the compartment on top of the dash? Mine is on the left side by the A/V inputs
