One of the coolest and most useful options that can be had on most Ford vehicles is Sync. The Sync system offers hands free integration with mobile phones and other controls of the car like the entertainment systems and the AC system among others using Bluetooth and the driver's voice.
With states all across the country seeking to pass bans on texting and driving and many states already having bans in effect Ford is adding new features to Sync to give drivers alternatives to texting. The new features include a Do Not Disturb button, Bluetooth MAP support, and improved Blackberry support.
Ford have been gradually squeezing more functionality into their SYNC in-car computing platform, and now they've joined up the dots between the Nuance speech-recognition system added earlier this year and the smartphones Ford drivers are carrying. The new Ford SYNC AppLink - which will be first available on the 2011 model year Fiesta - will hook up to Android and BlackBerry handsets and allow for voice-control of applications updated for compliance with the company's new APIs. Initially, that will include Pandora, a Twitter app and a streaming radio app.
The more recent Ford cars and trucks have some very cool tech inside called Sync that lets the driver make hands free phone calls and control various functions of the audio system with their voice. Ford and Nuance have announced that they are teaming up to make the voice control with Sync even more robust.
It used to be that if you wanted the latest in electronics inside your car you would be looking to the aftermarket for things like Bluetooth, iTunes tagging, and MP3 playback. Today many of the new vehicles cruising the streets have a myriad of electronics built right in. Ford has announced today that it has become the first automotive maker to offer HD Radio in its lineup with iTunes tagging.
One of the coolest features on many Ford cars and trucks is the SYNC system. SYNC lets drivers find music and make and receive phone calls hands free. The SYNC system is basically big, fancy hands free Bluetooth car kit.
