How to navigate the Ford SYNC 3 system
- Ford SYNC 3 with AppLink uses one shot destination entry, which means that address details can be entered into one field, instead of multiple fields.
- Swipe and pinch-to-zoom gestures can be used to change the map view.
- In full screen map view, the controls at the bottom of the screen are hidden after 10 seconds to provide a larger map area.
- The optional Navigation system provides a full 3D experience with a rotating, elevated map view, enhanced graphics and Points of Interest (POI) building images.
- The Ford SYNC 3 with AppLink engine uses 'fuzzy logic' to correct spelling mistakes and other errors when inputting a destination.
