The popular infotainment system for Ford vehicles, SYNC®, has been updated for new models. SYNC® 3 is the latest version, which has been completely redesigned to appeal to buyers. Select 2016 Ford models will feature this edition.
Changes To SYNC®
The goal with SYNC® 3 was to make improvements that would enhance the use of the infotainment system and satisfy the needs of customers. One of the biggest changes is that the new version better recognizes conversational descriptions instead of relying on specific words to provide accurate results.
For example, you can say “Kelowna airport” rather than “Kelowna International Airport”, and the system will understand your meaning. This is a major benefit for those times when you may not know the exact name of a place.
Commands are followed faster on SYNC® 3 to reduce your wait time when you need information. The touchscreen is also more user-friendly and feels more like a smartphone. AppLink has been integrated into this version with software updates completed automatically.
