How Alexa Works With Ford SYNC
In today’s fast-paced world, there’s a clear demand for more efficient, cutting-edge technology inside our vehicles to enhance convenience and comfort. Ford understands and meets these needs with access to Amazon Alexa by way of their innovative Ford + Alexa technology through Ford SYNC. Since its original debut in 2016, Ford has rolled out a fleet of capable vehicles equipped with this industry-first, in-car Alexa application, but how exactly does it work? Allow our Aztec area Ford dealer to explain!
Compatible on all Ford vehicles with SYNC 3 version 2.2 or higher, it’s easier than ever to access all the capabilities of Amazon Alexa on your drive around Aztec and the surrounding areas. First, download the current version of the Ford + Alexa app on your smartphone and sign in using your Amazon account information. You can then connect your phone to the SYNC 3’s AppLink™ and just say “Alexa,” followed by the question or command you have to activate it. It’s that simple!
Traverse The Aztec Area Easier With Amazon Alexa
The Ford + Alexa technology makes it easy to stay connected and offers drivers similar conveniences for their car that Amazon Echo users have come to expect. While on the go, you can ask Alexa for directions or recommendations based on your actual location via GPS, pick up where you left off listening to your audiobook, and even utilize your Alexa smart home device to control lighting, security systems, and more from the comfort of your vehicle. It’s not necessary to have an Amazon Prime account to take advantage of this technology, but if you are a Prime member, you can also ask Alexa to order or re-order what you need the minute it occurs to you.
In addition to this, the Ford + Alexa SYNC technology can connect you to your car through the use of Alexa devices such as the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap. By speaking through one of these devices, drivers can start or stop their vehicle’s engine, lock or unlock doors, check electric range and charge status, as well as learn fuel levels so you’re never caught unprepared on the road.
