With 2014 version of Fiesta, Ford has not only made changes to its design, but have also added an important feature on the inside. This is in the form of SYNC with AppLink. The SYNC feature includes caller ID, call waiting, conference calling and caller log besides contact list, signal strength icon and phone battery charge icon. SYNC will also read SMS messages while one can also reply to these messages via selection of response from one of the 15 pre set messages using voice command.
Ford AppLink allows the driver to use certain cell phone applications with voice commands. These can be done by connecting the smartphone with the system via Bluetooth or USB thereby offering a better and safer driving experience. As on date, Ford AppLink has only three smartphone applications to include Explore by MapMyIndia, ESPN Cricinfo and Glympse. Updates on food destinations, latest cricket scores, etc are available through this app. All you have to do, is speak the command, and the app will carry out the said functions.
While Ford AppLink TM is being offered in India on board the 2014 Ford Fiesta, it will also be available from 2015 onwards in Taiwan, New Zealand and Thailand. New Ford Figo hatchback and sedan, which are scheduled to be launched in first half of 2015, will also come with this feature.
