I am in love with the Ford Sync system that the company uses in its 2010 and 2011 vehicles. Ford keeps adding new features to the system free of charge for users that are already using the Traffic, Directions, and Information (TDI) software.

The latest feature for Sync users with TDI, which is all 2010 and 2011 Sync equipped vehicles, is Send to Sync for Google Maps. Using the feature the user can look up Google Maps driving directions on their handset and then send them to Sync in their car.

The Sync system will then read the directions back to the user as they drive turning them into turn-by-turn driving directions. The feature is accessed by using the Services command and then confirms the download from the phone.
