Ford Sync Destinations imageFord’s MyFord Touch infotainment system has become a popular feature among car buyers, especially as it becomes available on more Ford vehicles. Expanding upon this popular system is Ford’s all-new mobile app called SYNC Destinations. SYNC Destinations is a free app available on the Apple iPhone, Apple iPad and Android-based devices, with BlackBerry availability coming soon.

According to Ford Dealer MN, SYNC Destinations gives customers with the SYNC TDI (Traffic, Directions and Information) service access to a host of navigation and traffic information specifically designed to make any trip easier.

“With SYNC Destinations, you can be standing in line for a coffee, making impromptu plans with a friend or sitting at the ballgame, and conveniently add a new address to your Saved Points – without ever stopping to log into your account at a personal computer,” said Dave Gersabeck, SYNC TDI product manager.

Other key benefits to the SYNC Destinations app include:

  • Traffic maps with real-time speed, accident and incident information for all highways, interstates, arterials and city streets in 126 metropolitan areas across North America.
  • Reliable traffic forecasts that predict how travel times are expected to change over time.
  • Fastest routes based on current and expected traffic conditions as well as recommended departure times.
  • Easy look-up of addresses for new destinations through local business search and address book integration

Ford will host demos of this new app during the International CES consumer technology trade show in Las Vegas next month. Additional screenshots can be viewed below.
