As mentioned before, the Ford SYNC® AppLink™system is looking to enhance the in-vehicle app experience. Even more important, Ford wants to help drivers keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Some of the new functions that Mustang drivers can expect are:
- Easier in-vehicle menus and controls which will allow drivers to launch apps on their mobile device more quickly by pressing the SYNC button on the steering wheel and saying the name of the app (and not "Mobile applications" first).
- Apps can retrieve access to a selection of real-time vehicle data such as acceleration, speed, odometer, and location that can be used to customize the user experience. For instance, access to the in-vehicle GPS signal can make for more precise and accurate location-based services.
- A more consistent user experience thanks to voice pass-through capability. This allows developers to use the on-device or cloud-based voice recognition system to evaluate commands given by the driver. Drivers are able to use the same set of voice commands to control the app when connected to the vehicle as they would when they are not connected.
- Notifications will be read aloud to drivers as they come in. Alerts are available anytime a mobile device is connected to Ford SYNC® AppLink™, even if the app is not active at that time or if the driver is listening to the radio.
The 2015 is already the most technologically advanced version of its kind and the fact that it will be the first to launch Ford SYNC® AppLink™ is just another notch on the belt.
