Features and Functions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been developed with the ultimate goal of keeping you connected, controlled and safe on the road. By pairing your compatible iPhone or Android phone to their respective interfaces, you can access maps, hands-free calling and texting, media playing and more from your Ford model’s SYNC infotainment screen. This way, your vehicle turns into an extension of your phone’s apps, eliminating the need to look down at it whenever you need to accomplish something.
