What can you do with FordPass SmartLink?
There are three incredible benefits that FordPass SmartLink brings to the table, and we’ll cover them in greater detail below:
Remote Vehicle Controls
With the FordPass SmartLink app installed, you can control your vehicle right from your mobile device! It allows you to lock and unlock your Ford model, start its engine remotely, and even honk the horn.
Vehicle Location Assistance
FordPass SmartLink also offers geofencing and speed alerts, allowing you to locate your vehicle if, say, you forgot where you parked. You’re also able to keep tabs on other vehicles with this tech installed, whether they be members of your family or drivers in your fleet business.
Alerts and Notifications
As its name suggests, FordPass SmartLink is also highly intelligent. It will give you a notification if someone gets too close to your model, and can show you health alerts and diagnostics so you can always keep tabs on how well your Ford is running!
We should also mention that if your model has the relevant technology included, FordPass SmartLink can help you connect for mobile 4G WiFi! This comes with a complimentary data trial so that you can check it out for yourself!
