Ford Motor Company is set to release a new update for 2016 model-year vehicles equipped with Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system, unlocking Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities that had previously been absent.
Customers can also get the update via the traditional means of visiting their dealer or using a USB drive, Ford said. This should pretty exciting news for Ford owners who now won't need to buy a brand new auto to get a major infotainment upgrade. CarPlay and Android Auto are huge upgrades vs. most in-car software, offering navigation and entertainment options that follow you from your phone to your vehicle. They can also use a Wi-Fi connection and install the upgrade directly to their auto. With a simplified interface, large touch targets, Google voice search and easy-to-use voice controls, Android Auto is created to minimize distraction while on the road. Like with Android Auto, CarPlay allows integration with the in-car infotainment system, enabling app projection on the SYNC 3 screen, and voice control via Apple's Siri system. SYNC 3 will periodically connect to a designated Wi-Fi network to check for updates and new features, and automatically download them in the background if they're available.
