What is SYNC 3?
SYNC 3 is the current version of Ford’s in-dash infotainment system, which allows drivers to connect their compatible smartphone and access their personal phonebook, their phone’s music library, internet, news, maps, and more. With a smartphone-like interface that pays homage to the blackberry, critics are calling it the most intuitive, easy-to-navigate interface in infotainment today.
How Does it Improve Upon the Original SYNC?
Whereas the original SYNC’s interface was your standard in-dash infotainment touchscreen, the new SYNC 3 interface has gotten a refreshed layout modeled after smartphones. In the older version, you used to have to click through a number of folders and frequently scroll to find the media you wanted. SYNC3’s smartphone layout has been organizationally optimized to cut out as much of that work as possible. This makes access more intuitive and driving safer. The new system also adds access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allows them to access select apps, stream music, and even make phone calls using the voice command technology and their compatible smartphone.
Convenience doesn’t stop with the user interface, however. SYNC 3 also features updates over Wi-Fi that will allow the system to download the latest software patches, apps, security features, and firmware upgrades without drivers having to take it into the dealership. Drivers simply connect their Ford vehicle to their home network and allow the system to do the rest.
