CES 2011: Ford Gives 2011 Fiesta Owners First Crack at Sync AppLink

You don’t have to look hard around the site here to figure out I am a big car fan. I own a Mustang with the Ford Sync system in it and love it. Sync is one of my favorite parts of the car. I also spent some time with the Ford Fiesta last summer and found it to be a nice little economy car for people looking for style and to save some money too.

Ford has announced today that they will be showing off the newest update for Sync at CES 2011 and Ford Fiesta owners can give the app a go right now. The update adds a new feature called AppLink to sync. Installing AppLink to your Fiesta is done just like applying any update. You log into Syncmyride, download the file with the update to a flash drive and then plug the flash drive into your car's USB port.

Once the update is done, you can hit the voice button, say "Mobile applications", and then tell sync what app to launch. The AppLink update will work with the iPhone, Android devices, and Blackberry smartphones. No apps for the iPhone are offered right now, but there will be support in early 2011 according to Ford. The first apps for the iPhone and the other two devices are Pandora, Stitcher, and OpenBeak for Blackberry devices only.

With Pandora, the driver will be able to launch the app with their voice, tune to specific stations using their voice and rate songs using their voice and more. This is a really cool new feature and Ford will be rolling the app out to other Sync cars in 2011. I hope it will work with 2010 models.
