Ford and Telenav Offer Navigation without Cell Service
As handy as the GPS navigation on our phones is, there is not always cell service to keep the information flowing when you are far-off the beaten path. To help drivers get where they need to go when adventuring outside cell service areas, Ford and Telenav are offering a navigation solution for SYNC 4, which is available in the new F-150 and Bronco.
The hybrid navigation system works smoothly whether you have cell service or not and can continue to give maps and directions thanks to maps stored in the system’s memory. And when you have a cellular data connection, you also get all the benefits of real-time services like traffic data, giving you the best of both worlds.
This navigation system also can give specialized routing options for customers who are towing a trailer or going off-roading. For those towing a trailer, the system will give the best route based on the dimensions of the trailer and avoid sharp turns, narrow bridges, and low overpasses. The 4×4 trail maps give off-road enthusiasts more information than you would typically get in a standard navigation app.
In everyday driving, the navigation system can give all kinds of time and money-saving information. It will help you find cheap and available parking, highly rated restaurants in your area, low gas prices and much more. Plus, all of these capabilities can be easily accessed via voice commands with SYNC 4’s digital voice assistant.
