Ford F-150 builds on more than 10 years of SYNC innovation with SYNC 4 which helps minimise distractions with hands-free voice control as well, as core features such as making phone calls and selecting music.
And the soundtrack to every adventure is provided by a new eight-speaker B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen starting on F-150 XLT, or the optional 18-speaker B&O Unleashed system with speakers in the headliner and front headrests, which is standard on F-150 Lariat, Platinum and Limited.
A clean, simple design, similar to SYNC 3, and with three selectable zones, F-150 owners can operate the standard 8inch, or available 12-inch, SYNC 4 touchscreen with ease. The bottom menu is always accessible no matter what is showing on the screen, while the upper bar provides status information; such as the time, temperature and informational messages.
With twice the computing power of the previous-generation system, the standard across all trims all-new SYNC 4 can wirelessly connect smartphones without the USB cord for seamless integration of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility as well as SYNC AppLink apps, and includes more natural voice control and customisable information on demand.
Customers can operate certain smartphone controls such as navigation, reading email messages or playing music once Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are enabled. Pressing the Push-to-Talk (PTT) button on the steering wheel can be used when a compatible smartphone with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay is connected to the vehicle.
SYNC 4 technology offers an easy to search Digital Owner’s Manual, which users will be able to navigate from a table of contents, search by keyword and create bookmarks.
Lastly, in addition to Arabic and English, there are multiple languages to choose from, available with content displaying both left to right and right to left, though with safety in mind, the Digital Owner’s Manual is not accessible when the vehicle is in motion.-- TradeArabia News Service
