2012 Ford Mustang will be offered for the first time with the SYNC AppLink integrated with Ford’s optional Voice-Activated Navigation System with an 8-inch touch screen for control, as a factory-installed feature. This system will also enable Mustang owners with hands-free voice control of their smartphone apps.
SYNC AppLink for Mustang will first be demonstrated at the Pepcom Digital Experience, held in Las Vegas tonight, the day before the start of the 2011 International CES.
“Mustang is an exciting next addition to the AppLink portfolio, giving Ford the ability to offer more of our customers a smarter solution to using apps while in the car,” said Doug VanDagens, director of Ford Connected Services. “We continue to move quickly and migrate smart technologies across our vehicle portfolio that deliver solutions customers are demanding.”
“Our Voice-Activated Navigation System integration allows us to enrich the AppLink experience even further, giving customers an industry-first combination of voice control and touch-screen access to the apps stored on their mobile phones,” said Julius Marchwicki, Ford SYNC product manager.
