Staying Organized with the Help of SYNC® 3 Apple CarPlay™ Compatibility

November 30 2017, Bartow Ford

Technology exists to make our lives easier. Thanks to Ford’s SYNC 3 and Apple CarPlay combined, we can all become more organized than ever before. Because Bartow Ford is your preferred Winter Haven Ford dealership, our experts want to explain the three creative ways your CarPlay compatible SYNC 3 system can help you maintain a more organized life, including tips for staying safe on the road.

Scheduling Help

One of the most exceptional features of an iPhone is that it allows us to keep track of everything we do through the Reminders app. By connecting your device to your SYNC 3-enabled Ford through the USB hub, you’ll be able to take advantage of these features when you are in your vehicle. That means you’ll be able to set reminders that trigger right when you hop inside your compatible Ford car or truck. You can, for example, remind yourself to stop for coffee along the way to work, pick up groceries on the way home, or get your oil changed. Get creative and, more importantly, get productive!

Navigation

Over the past few years, Apple developed their map navigation system to include a variety of features, including search functions. With your phone connected and Apple CarPlay activated, you can use Siri voice commands or press the maps button to begin navigation to the destination of your choice. You don’t necessarily need to know the exact address of where you want to go, as you can use the smart assistant capabilities of Siri to ask for directions to the nearest location.

Safe Messaging and Phone Calls

Now that your phone is connected to your Ford, you’ll be able to message and place phone calls through the SYNC 3 system as all of your contacts are synced. Using voice, you can dictate a message and have Siri read it back to you to ensure it is correct. Using these features while driving allows you to be more productive and maintain organization all while being safer than using your phone directly, allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
