As if Ford’s SYNC technology doesn’t already come with enough features, the Blue Oval is now adding a host of other features to the handsfree system’s overall portfolio.

With the new features, owners of of any 2010 and 2011 Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles will now be able to access more than just the usual traffic report. Now, they can check out movie listings, sports, news, stock quotes, and of course, the ever-so popular horoscopes, with just a tap of a few buttons and a few voice commands.

According to Doug VanDagens, director for the Ford Connected Services Organization, the new features of SYNC will give car owners a plateful of personal and convenient information without hassle or worry. "SYNC is helping us move at a faster pace and deliver the level of connectivity and access that consumers want,” he said.

So in the event that you own a any of the aforementioned models of cars, checking something like the score of an NBA play-off game or the movie schedules at your local cinema will be as easy as asking SYNC to look it up for you. The technology is kind of like the BlueAnt S4, but instead of being available for all vehicles with the use of your cell phone, it’s only available for limited models.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Yes, very much agree. However, its a good thing that ford tries to put some high technology in their car. And I think SYNC is just one of its great features.

Wow! Feels like having a newspaper in other modern form. Well, I think this is very useful for businessmen. However, for an ordinary person that just want to experience the fun driving in Ford car, I don’t think that its necessary to have one.

Hmm not bad, cars are expected to be tech integrated today since most features can be done remotely.
