New Ford Technology Allows You to Sync Your Ride
We’ve been talking a lot lately about how
the auto industry’s is going green, but getting lost in that is how
high-tech your next fleet vehicle might be as well.
You may be aware of Ford’s SYNC system, that
allows you to play music and make phone calls with the touch of a
button or through voice command, but like most great tech gadgets, new
applications just keep coming.
The system works with most media players and with
Bluetooth enabled phones and now has applications that you can download
which will call local 911 in the event of an accident and will speak to
the operator if the driver is unable to speak.
was launched in 2008, will be factory installed with updated features
into all Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles, beginning with recent 2010
The updated system is also offering personalized
traffic reports featuring text-message traffic alerts, turn-by-turn
driving directions and voice activated searches for the latest business
information, news, sports and weather up dates.
Perhaps the most useful feature to fleet managers
is the VHR report that allows you to monitor diagnostic system’s
statuses and alerts owners of any dealer recalls.
If you have Ford vehicles in your Fleet that
feature SYNC, but don’t have 911 Assist or Vehicle Health Reports, your
dealer can provide software installation.
