Ford SYNC

What is Ford SYNC? Ford SYNC

SYNC provides a hands-free option for drivers to enjoy their mobile devices and in-car entertainment.  SYNC allows you to do all this safely, without taking your eyes off the road, using simple voice commands. SYNC is available on most 2010 Ford models.

Mobile Phones

mobile phoneSYNC works with most bluetooth-enabled phones. Using just your voice you can make calls, answer calls, browse your phone book, and put calls on hold. It’s as simple as pushing a button and saying the person’s name. You hear his/her voice through your car’s speakers and you simply talk back. SYNC will even read your text messages aloud for you. SYNC makes many of your phone’s services available via its display including caller ID, call waiting, conference calling, caller log, and signal strength. SYNC will even play your ringtones including custom ringtones you’ve set for specific individuals. If multiple people in your family use your car, SYNC can link up to 12 different mobile phones.

Music

audio deviceUsing the USB port you can play music, audiobooks, or podcasts from your MP3 player or USB drive.  Or you can use your Bluetooth-enabled device to wirelessly stream music. The USB port in your vehicle will even charge your device.  Voice commands are as simple as “Play [Artist].” You can tell SYNC to play by artist, genre, or song title. SYNC also has the ability to create virtual “smart” playlists based off the style of music you are playing at that moment.

Sync Services

Traffic and directions are two of the most important and useful features of SYNC. Push a button and tell SYNC where you want to go and it will give you Turn-By-Turn directions via your car’s speakers. You can say a specific street address, a location saved to your account, or use Sync’s Business Search feature. If you say “Traffic” SYNC will give you useful traffic and on-road information via your car’s speakers.

Driver Assistance

SYNC manIf you are in an accident and the airbag deploys, SYNC can use your linked mobile phone to connect your directly to a 911 operator. In the event that you are unable to speak, the system sends out an urgent message to the emergency operator. SYNC can also give you information about your vehicle. Just say “Vehicle Health” and a personalized online report will be created for your vehicle. The report will give you vehicle diagnostics, scheduled maintenance information, recall information, and you can even schedule service online. Never be left wondering about the “health” of your Ford.
