Ford’s Next Generation SYNC 4 System Unveiled
Ford has announced the next generation of its SYNC infotainment system that is easier to use and faster than ever, with new features to help drivers stay safe and connected. Some highlighted new features of SYNC 4 include cloud-based navigation with traffic information, digital owners manuals and wireless compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
In addition to new features and capabilities, SYNC 4 includes an updated design and interface, with the ability to change depending on the vehicle, the screen size and what the driver wants to see. Ford has said multi-tasking will be easier than ever, with information available to be viewed quickly without having to swap between multiple screens.
Screen sizes for cars equipped with SYNC 4 range from 8 inches to 15.5 inches, and there are different ways information is displayed depending on the screen size. These new displays are combined with optional FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality to make driving while staying connected even easier.
SYNC 4 also features improved voice-recognition technology, with the ability to understand more natural requests and provide accurate suggestions. Machine learning capabilities also allow for SYNC 4 to make suggestions based on your previous behavior and frequently contacted people.
An all-digital owner’s manual makes finding the information you need easier, with a searchable database, streamable how-to videos for common features and more in-depth information for certain items.
