Ford SYNC technology allows you to stay connected and entertained while driving – without taking your eyes off the road. Through the power of voice command alone, you can do a variety of things – including making and answering calls and streaming your favourite music. It’s also smart enough to read out your text messages.
SYNC 3 is the latest generation system, and it’s more intelligent than ever before. Now the touchscreen adds simple pinch and swipe gestures, improved voice commands and enhanced functionality for your convenience. The all-new interface also features bigger buttons for faster and easier access to the information you need.
Along with AppLink, Ford SYNC 3 also connects with Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto – making it easier than ever to stream music on the move. Ford SYNC pairs with your smart device via Bluetooth connectivity. Once you’ve hooked it up to your vehicle, you’ll be able to access your phone book and assign voice commands to individual contacts.
This system also has an important safety feature, Emergency Assistance, with life-saving potential – that’s because it will automatically contact the emergency services if you’re involved in an accident that deploys the airbags or deactivates the fuel pump. Operating in over 30 European countries, SYNC transmits critical information (such as GPS coordinates) so you can be found as quickly as possible. The technology has been recognised by industry professionals, attracting a highly-rated Advanced award from the Euro NCAP safety body.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance is available in a range of Ford models, including C-MAX, Focus ST, Fiesta and Kuga.
