SYNC Services. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t, but everyone’s wondering- what are these thingies? Let me break it down.
In a nutshell, what are SYNC Services?
SYNC Services is a complimentary 3-year service that provides drivers with weather forecasts, the latest sports scores, turn-by-turn navigation, traffic reports, and more! These services are registered online and accessed through a paired phone in the vehicle.
How do I know if I am eligible for the SYNC Services?
SYNC Services are complimentary for three years when you purchase a vehicle with the MyFordTouch or MyLincolnTouch System. When purchasing a used vehicle with the MFT system, it will only be complimentary if the previous owner did not already register the VIN number.
