Thanks for your feedback. I have a 2011 F350 on order and my experience from listening briefly to the Navigation Audio system in a 2011 at the dealer was that is was no where near the quality of sound from my 2008 Audiophile Navigation system. My 2008 is by far more crisp, clearer, well defined sound and actually best factory sound I've ever had in a vehicle.
Heck, we don't buy these trucks for a Navigation Sound System, but by darn, Ford charges $1850 list for the Navigation Sound System and by golly for that price, I expect it to match the quality of the 2008 and to get what is paid for.
Waiting for my delivery, I have downloaded all of the 2011 manuals to read up on everything. The Navigation Suppliment Guide is 208 pages long, almost as big as the truck manual. Most of it deals with all of the Synch stuff that I could really do without. I just expect high quality sound and a decent navigation system with some improvements to the 2008.
I also do not like the loss of the 6 disc CD changer. Yes, you can load the CDs into the Juke Box, but only by reading the data from the CD and not from connecting a USB cable from another source to copy the files in within a traditional file management system. If my understanding is correct, via the USB connection you can only read and play, but not copy, MP3s from another file source.
