On my last road trip I tried to use the Ford navigation to do the whole route and it just didn't work. What I learned what that when you enter a destination, the 3 route options the navigation provides are BEFORE any EV charges are added. Then once you select your route it adds the chargers at that point, which is definitely not the way to do it. For example we were going from Chattanooga to Bloomington, IN I selected the route that made the most sense and it said 7 hours. After it added the EV chargers the time went from 7 hours to 14 hours because it selected a couple of Level 2 chargers which clearly added a ton of time the overall trip. So instead I selected the 3 EA charges on the route and navigated to each one and the total trip took a little over 8 hours to complete. Clearly the chargers should be selected by the navigation as part of the route planning not afterwards. I sent this feedback to Ford because if they really want the navigation to work they need to get this fixed.
