My Escape doesn’t have a built-in Nav System, but I was very pleased to learn Sync works with Android Auto, which enables Google Maps usability (my preferred navigation software).
Overall I’m pleased with the Sync / Android Auto integration for navigation, however; the USB port doesn’t supply enough power to the phone to keep it charged while using AA / Google Maps. Trips over a few hours and my phone goes completely dead – often before I arrive at my destination!
Unless there’s a ‘work-a-round’ out there, it appears I’m going to have to avoid using the Sync Screen for navigation purposes – which is a real bummer.
Anyone else experience this problem? And, has anyone identified a solution?
