Ford’s SYNC Technology, Heading To Europe
Ford has revealed today its plans to bring the SYNC Technology, which is an infotainment and connectivity system, to the European models, starting with the new Focus. The Blue Oval said that it wants to have 2 million SYNC-equipped vehicles on European roads by the year 2015.
This voice-control technology is going to be available in 19 languages, as follows: United States, United Kingdom and Australian English; European & Canadian French; European and United States Spanish; European and Brazilian Portuguese; Italian, German, Dutch, Turkish and Russian. Other languages (outside of Europe) compatible with Ford’s SYNC system are Japanese, Korean and Arabic.
This system is able to recognize 10,000 commands in each of the aforementioned 19 languages which can give Ford drivers the possibility to control just about all of the car’s functions using their voice.
SYNC is able to connect to mobile phones via a Bluetooth connection and playback media is acquired thanks to the USB ports and can even act as a mobile WiFi hotspot for the vehicle’s passengers.
