FORD will be making it easier than ever for listeners to scan for their favorite radio stations, with an update to their MICROSOFT-powered SYNC in-car entertainment and connectivity platform.
While the updated SYNC in the 2014 FORD FIESTA will feature a new 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen display, the big news is a smarter voice recognition system with improved accuracy. FORD promises a more natural manner of engaging with it courtesy of a flattened audio command structure is on the way.
Drivers will be able to just say "play FM 101.9," instead of having to previously inform the system as to whether you would want to tune in to regular radio or satellite radio. Users will also be able to speak "play," in order to request a specific artist, song, album or genre.
