FLUSHING, Mich.- You're probably familiar with Ford's in-car infotainment system, and the automaker has just announced a fun update to the SYNC system at the largest consumer electronics fair! Reinforcing the fact that driving is just not what it used to be, the latest Ford SYNC AppLink update incorporates TomTom and Hotels.com!
While the Ford SYNC system allows Ford drivers to keep their hands on the wheel by utilizing voice commands, the new AppLink update now enables users to voice-control specific apps like TomTom navigation and Hotels.com among others! The update is different than other in that it does not use Apple's Siri or Samsung's S Voice solution, instead Ford has developed their own voice-control system.
Unlike other systems, with the AppLink update there is no need to lean forward or tap on your phone's screen to utilize the TomTom navigation app or Hotels.com app through Ford SYNC. To navigate with the TomTom app, all you have to do is use your voice to command the app to direct you to an address that you have saved. And once you arrive, you can search for the nearest hotels relative to your position, check out the best options, and then confirm your booking over the phone. It's as simple as that!
Since Ford Motor Company has developed their own proprietary voice-control system, app developers have to specifically engineer their app to operate with SYNC, which is why there is currently only a limited number of compatible apps. We can only imagine that Ford will continue to develop the system which will lead to an increase in compatible apps.
