One of the sessions I attended today was on Emerging Technologies, and during the session I saw a live demo of SYNC with MyFord Touch.
In case you have never heard of Sync, here is how Ford describe it:
SYNC is an easy-to-use in-car connectivity system that allows you to make hands-free calls and control your music and other functions with simple voice commands.
SYNC features allow you to:
- Access your phone, compatible mp3 player or USB drive with voice activated commands
- Be connected directly to a 911 operator after an accident in which an airbag deploys
- Generate Vehicle Health Reports that provide vehicle diagnostics, maintenance and recall information
- Receive audible text messages
- And, much more
I had the chance to sit in one of Fords cars that had Sync integrated, and I was shown a demo.
I was very impressed at just how well it worked.
Take a look at the demo video below:
