You can even set Gates as your preferred Ford Dealer, and book servicing and repairs straight from the app.
FordPass Pro can also take control of automatic vehicles, starting the engine remotely on cold mornings. And so that you can rest assured that your vehicle is secure, you can even lock your vehicle from the app.
