The new Ford Focus owners will be the first in the UK to benefit from SYNC’s class-leading connectivity, which will be rolled out to several other Ford vehicles following its debut on the new global C-segment model.
By using an owners’ existing USB modem or Smartphone, the SYNC-equipped new Ford Focus will be able to deliver a secure wireless connection that can be broadcast throughout the vehicle.
Passengers with any WiFi-enabled device can then easily connect and access the internet. All this allows for simple, easy to use WiFi connectivity on the move for up to five devices.
Using SYNC’s far reaching connectivity potential, Ford will offer individuals and families a level of in-car internet access that was until recently only available to the owners of considerably more expensive vehicles.
The increasing availability and popularity of WiFi compatible devices means that, as long as there is a data connection brought into the car, Ford passengers will be able to stay in contact with friends, keep abreast of the news and even play the latest games on the move and at all times.
Chief Engineer for electronic and electrical systems Christof Kellerwessel said: “Ford is an automaker that is quickly becoming a personal technology company as well. We are finding that Ford customers are tech savvy and – while travelling as passengers in cars – they want to be able to use their WiFi enabled devices while on the move.
“A reliable in-car internet connectionis therefore extremely important to them, and that’s exactly what SYNC will offer when it makes its UK debut on the Ford Focus in 2012. SYNCwith MyFord Touch will offer rolling connectivity to Ford customers and everyone in a SYNC-equipped car can benefit at no additional expense.”
