Ford has revealed its next generation of In car entertainment, the Sync 3. This is more fast, sleek and sturdy as well as quite improved from the previous Sync 2. It’s more interactive and is more pleasing in view as well as supports a far superior integration with smartphone apps.
The most prominent feature in this latest Sync 3 is that it is powered by QNX instead of the Microsoft Auto which powered its previous generation, the Sync 2.
This is the third installment of infotainment released by Ford and offers quite easily the best experience as compared to its predecessors.
The recent endeavor which was called MyFord Touch variation housed a touch screen interface coupled with smartphone capabilities. It was such a horrible piece of junk that consumer reports suggested others to not to buy Ford or a Lincoln just because of this MyFord Touch.
So after plummeting in sales and lagging behind others, Ford decided to completely overhaul its MyFord Touch and Sync.
Ford claimed that it took almost 18 months to develop this infotainment system and the previous version is completely put in the dark.
The new Sync 3 platform is crispy and quite responsive as well. It’s targeted to provide its users a tablet like experience which includes pinch-to-zoom, smooth scrolling and most noticeably, a persistent menu bar located at the bottom of the screen.
On the low side Sync 3 is not compatible with Sync 2 hardware. This system would be rolling out sometime during next year
