This summer, the European tech lovers will get as many surprises as they want. Ford is coming up with one surprise for sure. That is this Motor Company is launching its new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system in Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Europe. The company is allowing drivers or more specifically car holders to control their connected smartphones, audio, navigation, and climate functions with more conversational voice commands.
The Sync 3 connected car is also going to launch in the US as well. The voice-activated 8-inch infotainment center can easily find establishments for you. You just need to press a button and say ‘I need a coffee’ or ‘I need petrol.’ As the automaker put both Android Auto and Apple Car Play support into the system, you can pair it with either an iPhone or an Android device.
Did you think this car could even understand many languages as well? I am sure you did not. But Ford has added five additional European languages to Sync 3’s knowledge bank in preparation for its debut. It has also installed localized versions of Emergency Assistance. Now drivers and passengers can initiate emergency calls in the country’s own language. Initially, Sync 3 will be available in Europe aboard the Mondeo, the S‑MAX, the Galaxy and eventually to the Kuga SUV.
So the MWC is bringing some good amount of tech devices this month. The unique feature of the car is blending the match for both iPhone and Android together. I think Ford is the first company making an attempt like this.
