Route Guidance Support with SYNC Traffic, Directions and Information Services With SYNC Destinations, access contacts, conduct real time business searches, enter new destinations and save them directly to your SYNC Traffic, Directions and Information Services account.

New destinations that you create and enter from the app can be saved directly to your SYNC account as one of up to 25 Saved Points.

Predictive Traffic: Don`t be late or miss important events! SYNC Destinations allows you to look into the future to see how travel times are expected to change over the twelve hours. SYNC Destinations analyzes current traffic conditions and other key variables like, day of the week, holidays, sporting events, accidents and road construction to accurately predict traffic in 15 minute increments.
Traffic Incidents: Access specific details for accidents, construction and other incidents that explain the “why” of traffic.
This app holds such promise to us Ford/Lincoln owners with the Sync systems. It leverages the functionality and accessibility of a smart phone with the in-car system to make both better and work together in a more seamless manner.
But all of the work that went and continues to go into this app seems like as waste with the silly, ridiculous feature that disables the app when the car is in motion. It is a mind-boggling shot in the foot (or head) for an otherwise well designed app.
Love this app!!!
If you have Ford Sync in your car, you need this app
Good, but could easily be improved
As I often do, I`m creating this rating to point out a flaw that is very annoying but could easily be fixed. The sign in screen has a little radio button that says "Remember me". If they could simply make that actually work, it would reduce the frustration i have with this app down to a "4 star" rating. I have to enter my username & password each time I go to use the app. Not cool.
