Ford and Microsoft have teamed up to create the SYNC system. The application connects the driver’s Bluetooth to the Ford Service Delivery Network, and gives the driver access to directions, traffic information, directory assistance, news, weather, and sports via voice commands.
SYNC allows the driver to keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road while making phone calls, receiving text messages, and using an audio player. Ford even went a step further beyond expectations, employing two Bluetooth interfaces so that your phone and your audio device can be connected at the same time
There’s talk that the SYNC system may soon get streaming internet radio capabilities through a partnership with Pandora, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
The application will come pre-installed on most 2010 models. Buyers of early 2010 models can download the system at no cost from syncmyride.com.
