Platinum edtn is good but the inbuilt navigation has issue

for 1.5 TDCi Platinum Edition BSIV

Platinum edtn is good but the inbuilt navigation has issue

I recently purchased Ford Ecosport Platinum edition (1.5 diesel). The car is great to drive around. The tyres are bigger (205/55 R17) and look great with the new alloys. It has cruise control (although haven't tested it yet) and the usual top-end features like rain sensing wipers, auto-headlamps.Like the previous reviews by others the space at the rear cabin is a bit less as compared to other cars in the same segment but then for me it's not much of a concern. This is my first diesel car and to be honest I am totally loving the experience. Especially when the RPM hits 1500. Now the new infotainment system is a good addition to the car. The audio quality is great. But then I discovered a bug in the system. If you set the time correctly as soon as you start the car the time jumps by an hour and a half. It will stay there until you switch to the navigation menu. Only then will the time autocorrect itself. Another issue is that if the car is stationary and you are not using the route option then the GPS dot representing the car keeps moving around the map and shows a speed of 0-7km/h. (weird) My dealer has acknowledged that this issue is present on all the cars this unit is coming installed with which includes the Titanium version as well and the matter has been escalated to Ford India for further testing. So waiting to hear from Ford. Also the dialpad on the centre console doesn't work with the phone option of the infotainment system if it's a concern for some. So all in all the car is awesome..the infotainment system minus the few quirks I mentioned above is good.

      The time jump issue has been resolved for me with a software patch Ford sent to my dealer.
