I have mentioned on several occasions that I have a serious infatuation with Ford’s Microsoft Sync technology. Every time I look around Ford is adding cool new features to Sync and giving them to customers at no charge. Ford has announced that it has added a new function for Google Maps called Send to Sync.
The Send to Sync feature allows the driver to find destinations using Google Maps and then send those destinations directly to their Sync equipped vehicle through the cloud-based Sync Traffic, Directions, and Information (TDI) app. The directions are downloaded on their Bluetooth equipped phone and then processed as turn by turn driving directions while driving.
Using this feature you won’t need to print out directions again and bring them in the car, which is very slick. Ford will launch Send to Sync later this month and it will work on all 2010 and 2011 Sync equipped vehicles with TDI with no updates or extra software needed.
