Starting with the 2021 model year, you can enjoy the exceptional navigation skills of TomTom in select Ford vehicles. Ford Motor Company and TomTom recently signed a multi-year contract that will allow the former to add the latter’s next-gen navigation in upcoming models.
The first Ford vehicles to showcase the new partnership will be the 2021 Mustang Mach-E and the 2021 F-150. These models will feature the new SYNC® 4, the next generation of infotainment from Ford. By using TomTom through SYNC® 4, drivers will be able to adjust their navigation routes based on traffic to help avoid delays due to congestion.
The next-generation SYNC® 4 is said to offer two times the computing power of previous generations. This new system paired with TomTom navigation will keep up with real-time traffic and construction updates to provide the fastest routes on the fly. Drivers will also be able to use SYNC® 4 for help with parking, as the navigation shows information on parking spots and prices.
TomTom navigation and other SYNC® 4 features can be controlled with natural voice recognition. By using an easy, conversational tone, drivers can pull up directions, find restaurants, or send text messages, all while keeping their hands on the wheel.
