Remember the days of hammering the rewind button on your cassette player to replay your favorite song? You probably had a paper map sitting at your side, too. Well, those days are long gone. Now nearly every vehicle has an infotainment system. As the name implies, an infotainment system is a collection of hardware and software in a vehicle, used to provide occupants with both entertainment and information. While there are many infotainment systems on the Market, few can compete with the Ford SYNC 3.
Ford SYNC – The Beginning
When Microsoft and Ford get together, you know something great is in the works. That’s what happened in 2007, when then Ford CEO Alan Mulally and the great Bill Gates got together to create the Ford SYNC infotainment system. Right out of the gate, the SYNC system offered all kinds of advanced features including hands-free telephone calls, audio control, web surfing and navigation.
Introducing Ford SYNC 3
Ford SYNC is still as popular as ever and is available on many Ford Models. There are currently three tiers of SYNC technology: SYNC with MyFord, SYNC with MyFord Touch and SYNC 3. SYNC with MyFord includes all the staple infotainment features including voice control for calls, music and apps. Upgrade to SYNC with MyFord Touch and you get additional voice controls, an enhanced display screen and satellite radio.
The cream of the crop, the SYNC 3, nets you all the features found in the lower-level SYNC systems, plus much more. SYNC 3 offers a new interface, new features and the latest in voice control.
The best SYNC 3 Features
There’s a lot to love about the new SYNC 3. The following are some of our favorite features.
Advanced Audio System Voice Control
Feel like listening to Beyoncé? Just say her name and/or the name of the song, and SYNC 3 will have “Single Ladies” blaring out of your speakers. You can also search the traditional radio and satellite radio using voice commands.
Capacitive Touch Screen
This isn’t some clumsy old touch screen with capabilities from 2010. The SYNC 3 has a capacitive touch screen that allows for swiping and pinch-to-zoom functionality. The touch screen is extremely responsive and fast – in fact, it may just put your smart phone to shame.
Enhanced Voice Recognition
No one likes having a nonsensical voice recognition system that converts “dimples” to “nipples”. Thankfully, the Ford SYNC 3 system has enhanced voice recognition that actually understands what you say.
Apple Car Play and Android Auto
With Ford SYNC 3, you can seamlessly integrate your phone and vehicle – regardless of whether you play for team Apple or team Android. You can call upon Siri to do your bidding or pull up Google maps to get you to the nearest pizza parlor.
Synch Connect provides you with a vehicle connection system called Ford Pass. With Pass, you can track your vehicle’s location, start it remotely, track fuel mileage and more.
Built in Navigation
Google Maps is great, but SYNC 3 offers built in navigation in the form of SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link. You know, just in case you leave your phone at home, or get tired to listening to that robotic Google Maps navigation voice.
No need to visit the dealership to get the latest software update for your infotainment system. With the SYNC 3, updates are done over the air via a Wi-Fi connection.
