Technology Spotlight: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

This spring brought a new feature to Ford and Lincoln models never offered before: a greater level of synchronization between your vehicle and your smartphone using Apple CarPlay. Ford and Lincoln vehicles equipped with SYNC3 with Apple CarPlay support can access a number of their iPhone’s apps.​ 

The convenience of being able to access your phone’s map-based navigation, text messages, contact list, audio library, and more will revolutionize your time behind the wheel. Using the center console touchscreen, steering wheel-mounted controls, or voice-activated Siri interface, you’re able to get directions or send a message without taking your eyes from the road.​ 

Dozens of apps are available to use with Apple CarPlay, many specifically crafted by automakers for optimal use in vehicles.

Currently, Apple CarPlay functionality is available on 2017 Ford and Lincoln models, with certain compatible 2016 models with SYNC 3 requiring a software upgrade. For more information on making your vehicle more connected with Apple CarPlay, contact us as Shults Ford Lincoln - Wexford.​
