What Can Ford SmartLink Do and How to Get It?
In most cases, drivers must trade-in and trade-up in order to continue enjoying the latest automotive technologies. But, Ford has found a way that drivers of vehicles from the 2010 – 2016 model year can enjoy some of these tech convenience features without buying a new vehicle. It’s called SmartLink. What can Ford SmartLink do and how do you get it? That’s what we will take a look at here.
What Features Come With Ford SmartLink?
If you decide to equip your vehicle with Ford SmartLink rather than upgrading to a new Ford, you’ll be able to enjoy quite a few significant tech features. These include the following:
- 4G Wi-Fi hotspot
- Vehicle health and security alerts
- Vehicle location assistance
- Smartphone remote start, lock and unlock capability
These are features usually only found on the newest Ford vehicle, but thanks to Ford ingenuity, a few of those high tech features are made available for drivers of older model year vehicles. It’s just one more way you can enjoy your Ford.
How Do You Get Ford SmartLink?
Like we said, those drivers with 2010 – 2016 model year vehicles may be eligible. So, if your vehicle is eligible, how do you get it? Well, you visit your Ford dealer, like Sanders Ford, of course.
The SmartLink technology will be made available sometime in the summer of 2017. It is simply a device that drivers will need to plug-in to the OBD II port located below the steering wheel. Doing so will give you access to the above capabilities.
