Ford is counted among some of the first car manufacturer’s to bring-in full infotainment systems in regular vehicles. However, the first sync system could not attain much appreciation from buyers. There were complaints later on, for its confusing menus, counterintuitive controls, and lagging touchscreen. The American car maker took lessons from this mistake and has now come up with a completely new Blackberry based system which is called as Ford Sync 3. The company seems have taken its previous criticisms too seriously and has addressed all issues that lacked in previous system.

The new system features a more balanced division between voice controls and center-stacked touchscreen. Everything else also seems streamlined. For e.g., the home screen is split equally between three parts: the phone information, audio, and navigation. The navigation part is half a inch closer to the driver and allows a good view of maps and routes ahead. These areas can also be expanded for a full screen view in a single touch and the system also comes with menus for climate, apps, and navigation. The system highly relies on voice controls and its auditory sensitivity seems to have increased considerably in the new avatar.

Along with, the newer car infotainment system offers plethora of new options to the buyer which includes climate control, audio, navigation, as well as other phone functions. These apps can be easily synced with Spotify, Pandora, and iHeartRadio. To use the AppLink you will need to pair up the phone with Sync3. Once the phone is synced you can access all other features of this sync system easily. For music, it is advised to go for Bluetooth streaming of audio or simply putting the phone aide and listening to radio. The Ford Sync3 also features the Siri Eyes Free voice recognition that adds an Apple-specific functionality to this system. A plus point for iPhone users.
