  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Ford Adding Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, More to Sync 3 Infotainment

Recommended Posts

SYNC 3 and Android Auto

-

Ford has announced that its Sync 3 infotainment system will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone-mirroring from the factory starting with 2017-model-year vehicles. And owners of 2016-model Fords will be able to update their Sync 3 system to work with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well. It’s all part of a Sync 3 update that Ford announced in conjunction with the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Besides the Apple and Android news, the Sync Connect app unveiled last fall at the debut of the 2017 Escape will be available throughout the 2017 lineup. The app allows you to monitor and control aspects of your vehicle—such as location, fuel level, and remote locking and unlocking—with a smartphone, via a 4G LTE connection. A five-year subscription is included.

With Sync 3 now able to share a vehicle’s location with various programs, other location-based apps are now available, including one from AAA/CAA that can provide navigation with traffic info as well as local fuel prices; a Concur business-expense-reporting app that can log business trips; and Eventseeker and Cityseeker, which look for local restaurants and entertainment.

The 2017 Ford Escape, which already made its debut at the L.A. auto show last November, will be the first factory model out with CarPlay and Android Auto. As to the ability of 2016 models to add the features, Ford says that will come “later in the year.”
