When it comes time to get a new vehicle, there are some features you just can’t ignore. For example, many of the new Ford vehicles that are on the market today come with quite a few fun features and advanced technology that make it easy to handle and fun to drive. One of our favorite features is Ford SYNC, which is Ford’s elite infotainment system that can do everything from place phone calls to play music. Not only is this system a great way to stay connected at all times, but it is also a great way to stay safe and alert while driving. Ford just came out with SYNC 3, which is an updated version of the already high-functioning SYNC and uses voice-activated technology. All of these advanced features, however, beg the question, is Ford SYNC safe for new drivers? As with all technology and added features, it is critical to use as the manufacturer advises. That means, for example, don’t talk on your when you are traveling on a busy road or with a lot of traffic, or pull over if you are trying to get directions or sync your phone.
However, that doesn’t mean that all of these features are bad and should not be used! They are actually meant to be used to enhance safety and reliability, and when used correctly, can definitely help new drivers maintain a high level of safety. For example, the rearview backup camera allows drivers to see what is directly behind them as well as down by the vehicles’ tires. Voice-activated technology lets the driver maintain focus on the road rather than fidgeting with buttons. Navigation allows the driver to get to their destination safely and quickly. The advanced calling features allow the driver to talk on the phone hands-free and SYNC 911-assist will automatically call 911 if the vehicle is in a crash. Overall this system is extremely helpful and can be used in a variety of ways. See how much having SYNC in your current vehicle will help new drivers remain safe! Or maybe you just want SYNC for yourself! (We wouldn’t blame you!) Give us a call today to see what SYNC can do for you at 888-850-1962.
