    Take a look at this thread, it may help you.

    http://www.expeditionforum.com/threads/forscan-tweaks-2015.32082/page-58

    Look at the spreadsheet that is listed in post #576

    Also - if you put what vehicle you have/are driving in your signature, it will help others when you ask questions for assistance. Thanks.

    I’m posting this in the 4th gen forscan thread. Should be pretty clear what I’m asking about.

    He said you only lose the 911. The traffic info, is that actual traffic on the map (for instance, red color on road for heavy traffic) or somehing different all together?

    Yes, I know where you posted this, but it goes beyond just year.

    Like Max, Platinum, etc...those little bits of info are important since across the platform there are a lot of differences.

    Anyone in the Philly South Jersey area that could help a gun shy '18 owner do some of the MODs?

    Can we use forscan to reduce the number of radio sources. I have 3 am sources, 3 fm, and 3 sirius. I don't need 3 of each. It takes too long to switch from one source to another when I have to scroll through other unused sources.

    Bumping this up to keep it active. Still wondering about how to keep that hotspot on after exiting the vehicle. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Certainly the electronics that make all of this work shouldn't suck the battery down over several hours. We tow a travel trailer and most RV campground WiFi hotspots are a joke at best and nearly all are insecure. The advertised 50' range that Ford touts would be handy for those times you'd like to use the laptop at the picnic table or in the trailer, but the 20 minute timer is a big shortcoming in my opinion. Hopefully someone will figure out a way to extend the time to something useful.

    I agree about the electronics. I've tried running through the 20-minute timer several times and there is plenty of battery capacity remaining. Still hoping that a Forscan expert will be able to offer some help soon.
