Ford’s SYNC infotainment system is popular for a number of reasons, but one of them is because of how capable it is. In fact, we will sometimes see people who pick a Ford vehicle over another brand just because they enjoy SYNC more than what is offered in something else. Unfortunately we’ve noticed that some Ford drivers have a hard time figuring on which version of SYNC that they do have. If you’re not sure what infotainment system is in your Ford, take a look below!
How do I know what version of Ford SYNC I have?
So there are some different ways you can check which version of Ford SYNC is in your vehicle, but we’re going to go through some basic ways that you can narrow it down. There are four main version of Ford’s SYNC system:
SYNC and SYNC with MyFord
Ford’s basic SYNC system can usually be easily identified since the screen is smaller than its newer counterparts. It will show info for caller ID, song titles, a digital clock, temperature and others.
SYNC with Voice Activated Navigation
SYNC with Navigation is another one that can be easily identified since it will have a larger, color screen compared to the regular SYNC system. The navigation screen will aldo display 3D maps along with landmark icons.
SYNC with MyFord Touch
SYNC with MyFord Touch was the first touch-screen system that worked with SYNC, and you’ll usually find it paired with a 6.5-inch to 8-inch color touchscreen on your Ford’s center console.
Ford’s newest version of SYNC 3 is its most powerful and intuitive infotainment system yet. It will use either a 6.5-inch or 8-inch color touchscreen that has easy-to-read information presented on it. Like MyFord Touch, SYNC 3 also has the ability to use steering wheel controls or voice commands to control it while driving. Its cleaner presentation also means that more apps can be used when you connect your phone with SYNC 3.
