Today’s world moves so quickly that it’s important you stay connected while on the go. While talking on the phone or accessing your smartphone’s apps can be dangerous behind the wheel, Apple has innovated a new way to make mobile connection safer.
New Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC3 can be integrated with Apple CarPlay. This hi-tech feature allows drivers to access their iPhones without being distracted from the road. Using the center console touchscreen, steering wheel-mounted controls, or voice-activated Siri interface, you’re able to access dozens of apps on your iPhone, most of them developed by automakers for use through CarPlay.
Now, you’ll be able to obtain step-by-step navigation instructions, send text messages, browse your audio library, and listen to a podcast. Apple CarPlay functionality is currently available on 2017 Ford models, with certain compatible 2016 models requiring a software upgrade to use it.
