The Ford SYNC navigation system enables you to find the optimal route for your journey by using the simple touchscreen options or voice command. This article explains how to navigate with Ford SYNC 3.
Begin by pressing the Navigation icon in the Feature bar on the touchscreen. This is located at the bottom of the screen. Then press the Destination icon, which enables you to enter a postcode or search for the place you want to go. Alternatively, press the Voice Command button on your steering wheel to tell SYNC your destination.
Press the Search icon to type in your desired location to the search bar. This can be an address, point of interest, or intersection. Then press Search to view the results.
When you’ve chosen your destination, press Start Route to begin navigation.
You can also choose a destination on Map mode by tapping and holding the interactive touchscreen map until a viewfinder appears. Position your destination under the viewfinder using swiping, zooming, and pinching gestures, then press the Start button to confirm your desired location. A new screen will appear, enabling you to press Set as New Destination.
Map mode allows you to see your route either as a standard 2D map or view 3D landmarks or city models where available.
For faster navigation, you can set Home, Work or other destinations that you use regularly. You can do this by selecting the Destination icon. When the Set a Destination screen appears, press Home/Setup or Work/Setup to set your chosen address as a destination. An Add a Favourite message will appear – simply select Yes to continue.
You can then search for your desired destination in the normal way, and once SYNC finds it, a map and address will be displayed. Click Save to save it or edit the information by using the Arrow icon in the top left corner of the screen.
