2017 Ford F-150 walk-through of the Sync3 systemWe like Sync3 for its integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
[music] Welcome to the tech deep drive in the 2017 Ford F150. This has got the Sync 3 system which is super easy to use and it has got really fast inputs. It all starts here on the home page with three separate tiles. One for navigation, one for audio and one for my phone Now what I really like in the audio is that I can set an alert for any song that I might like. So Tom Petty Free Fallin'? Any time that plays over all of Sirius Radio, I'll get a notification and I can choose to tune to that and listen to that song. I can also use voice commands to tune my satellite radio. Please say a command. Sirius 1st Wave. [SOUND] Tuning to 1st Wave. Awesome. Now when I move along to navigation and press destination, I've got one box entry for any kind of addresses or points of interest. So, let's see. I wanna go to Peet's coffee after we film today. [MUSIC] There you go Peet's Coffee and Tea. And I will search for that and find a whatever is nearby. I can also search for some predetermined points of interest like Food, Fuel, Hotels, and ATM. And I can set up my home and work addresses so they're right there on the navigation screen. [MUSIC] I can also use my voice control to input navigation. [SOUND] [SOUND] Please say a command. [SOUND] Find an address. [SOUND] In California, please say the street address including the city. To search in another state, say change state. [SOUND] 235 2nd Street, San Francisco, California. [MUSIC] [SOUND] When ready- Yay. [UNKNOWN] destination. Sync three also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, so I'm just going to plug in my phone and the menu should show up right here. I've got access to a lot of my apps that I use including podcasts, Apple Maps as well as Pandora and Slacker Radio. The F-150 has got adaptive cruise control, which keeps the truck following the car in front of you at a predetermined distance. If that car slows down, you slow down as well. But if that car stops, well you are going to have to apply the brakes. Because the system disengages at about 12 miles an hour. Now if you could be patient, the 2018 F-150 should have stop and go functionality. Lane keeping assist reads the lane and knows when you are drifting out of that lane without signalling. It will apply a gentle tug to the steering wheel to get you back in line, but it's easily overridden by any kind of steering input. These and other driver's aids are all configured in the dash so you could turn them on and off whenever you like. Well, that's our deep dive into the tech of 2017 [UNKNOWN] F150, make sure you view our full review right here on theroadshow.com. [MUSIC]
