Google Maps adds 'Send to SYNC' button
Starting Friday, you'll be able to send directions from a Web browser to your Ford Sync-equipped car using the new "Send to Sync" button on Google Maps.
Starting Monday, you'll be able to send directions from a Web browser to your SYNC-equipped Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury vehicle using the newbutton on Google Maps.
If you use Ford's SYNC TDI (traffic, directions, and information) application, you can send directions directly from your computer or smartphone to Ford's cloud-based application. Once in your car, you can ask SYNC to retrieve the map, which it will download from the cloud; it will then calculate turn-by-turn directions using the latest traffic information and incorporating the driving preferences you set up in the app.
It's not yet clear whether you can send multiple destinations to the app at a time, but it will undoubtedly cut down on paper printouts, which--if you are anything like me--inevitably get forgotten anyway.
