How Can It Help Drivers?
When you’re connected to FordPass Connect, you’ll always know if your vehicle is ready for the journey ahead with the Vehicle Status feature, which allows you to check your vehicle’s fuel level, tyre pressure and mileage before you get behind the wheel.
Keep up-to-date with the road ahead using Live Traffic, which enhances your SYNC 3 Navigation system with added real-time traffic updates that refresh every 30 seconds. You won’t be late if there is a queue as the system will automatically find you the fastest route to keep you on time.
If you’re worried that you may not have locked your car, it’s ok, as the FordPass app has remote locking and unlocking so you can ensure it is locked from where you are. And you’ll never forget where you parked as the FordPass app shows your car’s parking location.
On vehicles with automatic transmission, you can start your engine from your phone wherever you are so if you want to get your car warmed up before you head home or to the office, you can do it from inside. When using this feature, the doors will automatically lock when the engine is on and will require your key before it can be driven so your car will be safe.
