Sync Connect is a new app and service, launched by American automaker Ford, that gives users the ability to remotely control and monitor certain features of their car.
The app connects to vehicle's built-in modems. It can be used to check the vehicle's location (perfect when you're trying to find it in a large parking lot), lock and unlock doors and start the engine remotely to pre-warm it on cold days. You can also use it to check fuel, oil, battery and tire pressure, so you don't have to worry about unforeseen and unwanted surprises when you're out on the road.
Ultimately, the Sync Connect app is part of Ford's stated goal to deliver "the next level in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience and big data." Indeed this app lives up to those lofty buzzwords and is truly taking advantage of the latest and greatest technologies to enhance auto owners' experience.
