I find it interesting that once an app successfully connects via Bluetooth, I can close the sync app and the other app will keep running. Sounds like Ford could have just scrapped the app, at least for Android users and added direct functionality. It's hit or miss on if the app ever let's other apps be read. And it's usually miss. In 2016, I'd expect Bluetooth access to be baseline, not the faulty "product" of some inconsistent application
Unlike sync, Google Maps works Sync maps does not know there is a business in Las Vegas, NV called Harrah's. It asks for a business name but it doesn't actually seem to have any businesses in its database. Skip Sync, use Google Maps. Ford would do far better if they would just set up Sync to mirror the phone screen.
Mediocre at Best This would be a decent app to use with Applink if users weren't required to pay $60 just to access features If you want to require your users to pay a yearly subscription cost, then atleast let me use Google Maps instead via applink as an alternative. Be nice if they would open up the sync coding so that someone out there could make apps that people could truly use rather than only what Ford says you can use with applink. Stupid to drop $60 for a year
Not very useful I tried loading an address via the application to my car. Over half the time the download to the car fails. I tried using the email address in the application for support and the answer back was to point to a website to get the phone number to call for support. What the heck is the point of the email address if they are just going to send you on a roundabout way to a phone number? Bottom line, you would be better off getting one of the old AAA TripTiiks.
Great plan. Needs better implementation. The concept of the app is good, but there is a lot of room for improvement from a technology standpoint. One of the most glaring oversights is the fact that you cannot copy and paste into the address where you are trying to go. You will have to manually type it in each time. If the developers spend some more time improving this app I could rate it higher.
It worked great until a week ago. Now it says I don't have an account even though I can log in in a computer. I removed the app 3x and even set it up under new emails but still won't "sync". My friends say "typical ford"... I'm really bummed because I really liked it.
