SYNC 3 is More Than Just Navigation and Hands-Free Calls

Ford Interior Tech 1

The SYNC infotainment and connectivity system comes in several flavors, the newest of which is SYNC 3. (You 2016 Mustang owners are familiar with it.)

Of course, it enables you to answer phone calls with the push of a button and the sound of your voice, and navigate your way to a destination. It offers so much more functionality than that, though.

According to Ford, “iPhone® users can activate Apple CarPlay,™ giving iPhone users access to Maps, Messages, Phone and Music through Siri® voice control or touchscreen. Android™ users can activate Android Auto,™ enabling easier access to Google voice search, Google Maps,™ Google Play Music™ and more via steering-wheel mounted controls and touchscreen.”

With SYNC Connect and FordPass, you can start, lock, unlock, and check the gas, oil, tire pressure, and battery levels on your vehicle from your smartphone. SYNC’s AppLink feature gives you the ability to control the apps on your phone with voice commands. Those supported by SYNC include Concur, through which you can log business-related mileage, and Eventseeker, which alerts you to events and concerts that fit your interests that are also near your vehicle’s location.
