Get to know the Lincoln Continental's Sync 3 infotainment system

Cars
[MUSIC] I'm in a 2017 Lincoln Continental for a quick infotainment system walk-through. A Continental uses a SYNC 3 system with an eight inch central touchscreen that features Lincoln specific graphics. And this is the home screen which provides a snapshot of your location, radio and phone statuses. Our lower bar provides quick access to your audio, climate, phone and navigation menus but all feature large clear enabled screen icons for adjustments. The audio screen is easy to work through. Changing sources can be done not only through the touch screen but the hard buttons on the center console or using [UNKNOWN] very good voice command System. [SOUND] Please say a command. Sirius 34. [SOUND] Tuning to channel 34. A climate screen let's you change major things, like the thermostat and fan speeds. But again, there's also standard buttons to control all of that. What I really appreciate about this car is that Lincoln didn't try to cram all the controls for the heated and cold seats and the heated steering wheel into the center touchscreen screen. Instead, they stuck with traditional buttons. My Android phone easily paired with Sync, which does feature really good sound quality for calls. Speaking of smart phones, Sync 3 is capable of running both Apple Car Play and Android Auto if you prefer one of those interfaces instead. With Navigation, entering addresses is easy using the touch screen, while there are shortcuts available for things like finding fuel, food and hotels. And that's the SYNC 3 system in the Lincoln Continental. Learning it shouldn't take newbies very and I happen to think it amounts to one of the better infotainment interfaces out there on the market today. [MUSIC]
