FordPass Connect Upgrade/Downgrade
If the vehicle is equipped with a FordPass Connect modem, the customer has the opportunity to downgrade or upgrade FordPass Connect (deactivate or reactivate all added value services) except for eCall*.
The added value services include Live Traffic, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Command and Control, Vehicle Locator, Status and Health Alerts. Downgrade/ deactivate means the vehicle will be “offline” and not sending or receiving data in case of a downgrade. In case of an upgrade the vehicle will be “online” again to send and receive data. The eCall functionality will always be available in case of an accident.
