At Johnsons Ford we want to help ensure you’re getting as much out of your Ford as possible, and for this reason we’ve put together this handy guide that will help you understand more about your Ford SYNC system and how to get as much out of it as possible.
Firstly, let us help you understand more about the Bluetooth® system complete with voice control. This allows you to easily make and receive hands-free calls, select music, adjust the temperature and even find directions (dependent on your model). This technology is easy to use and has been designed to ensure you’re able to use your phone safely while on the move.
Ford SYNC 1.0
Now let’s move on to the SYNC systems. At the beginning of the list is Ford SYNC 1.0 – this allows you to easily play your music, make and receive calls on your smartphone and have your incoming text messages read aloud to you, simply by ushering a few voice commands.
This therefore ensures your focus remains firmly on the road at all times. Also, if you’re unfortunate to be in an accident, this system can also assist you in calling the emergency services.
Ford SYNC 1.1
Next system in the list is Ford SYNC 1.1 with AppLink. By
offering intuitive voice controls it enables you to access and use the latest
entertainment, social news and information apps while you’re out and about, all
through the state-of-the-art technology that seamlessly connects your smartphone
to your vehicle.
Ford SYNC 2
Meet the Ford SYNC 2 with touchscreen and voice commands.
This is an upgraded system based on the earlier Ford SYNC 1.0 setup and comes
with a number of extra features that have been designed to enhance your in-car
experience. The colour touchscreen and simple voice commands allow you to
navigate its operation with ease.
Ford SYNC 3
Finally, the latest addition to this connectivity line-up is Ford SYNC 3 with AppLink. This carries all of the benefits of its predecessors but also carries a number of other advanced features that further improve your user experience. Pinch-and-swipe gestures combine with ultra-fast performance to make it even easier to use. Further to this, its compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it the most sophisticated system to date!
