Imagine a situation where you are on the road and your friend just texts you the location you need to drive down to. Find it difficult to read the directions from your mobile? Ford has introduced a new ‘Send to SYNC‘ feature that can pull location information from bluetooth-enabled mobile phones to provide voice-activated location directions from Google Maps on your in-car sat-nav system. This is an extension of Ford SYNC.
Doug VanDagens, the director at Ford Connected Services Solutions Organizationsays,
“With Send to SYNC, you can map a destination at home, at work – wherever you have connectivity – and when you get to your car, it already knows where you want to go. It’s convenient and it eliminates the waste and distraction of paper maps, conserving resources while helping drivers keep their eyes on the road.”
The Ford ‘Send to SYNC’ functionality is expected to launch later this month and is the only such application available for free.
