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.
