You all are familiar with smartphones that pack cell phone, Internet, navigation and other must-have data services. But many of them don’t offer in-vehicle integration and control of navigation facilities. Ford has now joined hands with Chevy to bring out a new navigation app that links to its connected car platform. TeleNav’s new Scout for Sync AppLink can revolutionize the in-vehicle mapping system.
You don’t have to install expensive onboard navigation system and pay monthly expensive bills anymore. You can get the navigation app installed in your vehicle from Ford for cheap.
Ford drivers can get turn-by-turn navigation through its Sync AppLink platform. The Sync AppLink platform provides traffic updates and voice prompts. The AppLink screen also displays alternative route instructions.
You can calculate routes and find out how long your trip will take. With the help of Sync’s voice command system, you can get directions for all the preset routes in your phone. The app’s data connection helps you to search for addresses and particular destination points. You can add these destination points as SYNC Services Saved Points.
You can also ask for fast food, gas stations or other similar destinations. It is for the first time that Ford has included on-board navigation directly with a smartphone. Chevrolet also is about to introduce a new smartphone nav app to its MyLink connected car platform. It will create a better in-vehicle experience to the new Spark and Sonic models.
