SYNC® AppLink® Overview | Ford How-To | Ford


[MUSIC] Your vehicle SYNC system maybe equipped
with a feature that allows you to control certain SYNC compatible apps you
downloaded on your smartphone. As a matter of fact, it can also send vehicle health
alerts directly to your smartphone. Let me explain. In addition to giving you
voice control over your CD and radio, you also have AppLink
which lets you access and control certain apps that you’ve downloaded to
your smartphone using voice commands, your audio system control, your steering
wheel controls or your SYNC hard controls. Keep in mind, before you can use AppLink,
any apps you wish to access must be downloaded first and your
smartphone must be paired and connected. Once it is, make sure Bluetooth is on,
then open the app and have it running on your phone. If you’re an iPhone user, you’ll have to
connect using an Apple provided USB cable. [MUSIC] Then you can use your voice or
the function and scroll buttons under the screen. Using the buttons,
scroll to the main Menu, SYNC-Apps, Mobile Apps, then Find New Apps. You’ll see a screen that lists all of
the apps that are currently running on your phone. Select the one you want, like Pandora. When you do, you’ll get a screen that asks
if you want to enable mobile apps on SYNC and let’s you choose if you
want to accept the data usage. Once you accept, your app will start. With your app streaming,
you can use voice commands to control the application by using
the function buttons on the screen. List gives you a spoken
list of available stations. There’s also a thumbs up and
thumbs down feature. More gives you additional options
like bookmarking stations, creating a station or quitting apps. One more thing, for
information on how to use specific apps, check out the online SYNC AppLink
catalog at Owner.Ford.com. New ones are added all the time,
so make sure to check back often. Any questions? Go to Owner.Ford.com. [MUSIC]
