Many of you have already experienced how amazing it is to talk to your car – and have it listen – with the Ford SYNC and MyFord Touch systems powered by Nuance’s voice technologies. In fact, a recent customer survey from Ford found that new owners identify SYNC’s voice-recognition capability as a key feature, and 77 percent report using voice commands regularly.
With Ford SYNC MyFord Touch’s intuitive voice user interface, people can make calls, set navigation and hear turn-by-turn directions, say something as simple as “I’m hungry” and find the nearest place to grab some grub, and of course, quickly and easily find that favorite song buried in the thousands stored on your mobile device. And with SYNC AppLink in select Ford vehicles, people can access cool apps like Pandora and NPR – all with just the sound of your voice.
And now it’s even better than before! Ford announced a SYNC MyFord Touch performance upgrade last week boasting great features such as an enhanced touch-screen and voice recognition, faster start-up time, and tablet compatibility. What’s more is that the upgrade is conveniently available through a USB drive that’s mailed directly to current MyFord Touch customers. A downloadable in-car experience? Very cool!
In fact, we’re here in beautiful Portland, Oregon this week to further showcase the voice capabilities in SYNC MyFord Touch in the 2013 Ford Flex and Taurus vehicles, and AppLink in the 2013 new Ford Mustang vehicles – all coming to a dealer near you this year.
