FordPass Connectivity

Your key to a more connected world

The new FordPass Connect modem makes your journeys easier. Discover a range of features in your vehicle, and on your smartphone, that work together to keep you effortlessly connected on every journey.

Key Features include:

Local Hazard Information

FordPass Connect can alertTooltip you to local driving hazards, such as road works, objects in the road or even a broken-down vehicle up ahead. Your Ford receives information from any nearby connected vehicles, as well as other local sources, such as the public incident database. If your vehicle is informed of an approaching hazard, a warning will be displayed in the digital display telling you the type of hazard and its distance from you. This enables you to be better prepared and, if necessary, find an alternative route.

Up-to-date traffic information

Live TrafficFordPass with Live Traffic enhances your SYNC 3 Navigation system by delivering up to date traffic updates. This is our most accurate and up to date navigation system ever, and includes traffic information for all roads, rather than just the major roads. The technology then adjusts your recommended route based on the traffic conditions, helping you to arrive more relaxed and on time.

Added peace of mind

Launching on the All-New Ford Focus, eCallFordPass eCall is a potentially life-saving feature that’s designed to reduce the time between a serious accident occurring and assistance being provided by the emergency services. In the unlikely event of an accident, FordPass Connect can automatically place an eCall to the emergency services and provide them with your vehicle’s location. You can also press an SOS button in your car to contact the emergency services directly if you witness an accident or require emergency assistance.

Effortless connectivity

With an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot offering speeds of up to 4G LTEWi-Fi hotspot, you don’t need to use your smartphone’s valuable data allowance to stay online. You can effortlessly connect a maximum of ten devices to the hotspot, load your favourite streaming services, and make those long journeys feel a lot shorter for any passengers or children travelling in your car. FordPass Connect comes with 3 months or 3GB of complementary data. Afterwards you can buy data bundles for a day, a month, or even a year from Vodafone. See their website for details. Check your vehicle's compatibility.

Connect to a range of remote features with the FordPass app

FordPass Connect becomes even more powerful when it’s paired with your smartphone via the FordPass app. Once connected, you can take advantage of a host of innovative new features.

Fuel Report

Fuel Report is a FordPass feature helping you to monitor driving efficiency with a monthly breakdown of your fuel usage. The report analyses data from your vehicle’s FordPass Connect modem, to show you such things as your estimated total cost of fuel for that month. After you have received several fuel reports, you can start comparing month to month data through a chart displayed within the app.

My Journeys

My Journeys is a FordPass feature that can record your trips and deliver tailored insights on how you can optimise your driving technique.

Each journey is tracked and stored, allowing you to compare by distance, duration, and more. You can log your journeys under personal or business categories and export the data.

The app can also provide useful feedback on how to drive more efficiently, by showing you such things as where you’ve braked too suddenly, accelerated too fast, or cornered too harshly.

Ford Kuga Plug-in Hybrid

If you own a New Ford Kuga Plug-in Hybrid, FordPass Connect delivers a range of useful vehicle features though your smartphone.

Using our dedicated PHEV functionality within the FordPass app, you can view your current vehicle status, including battery charge level and driving range. You can also set preferences for EV related notifications.

Trip & Charge Log lets you monitor your driving trends and power usage patterns. You can also locate the nearest public charging stations through the app, set your preferred home charging times, and even prepare your cabin temperature for specific departure times.

Start your engine from anywhere

Now, with the All-new Focus (with automatic transmission), you can use your phone to start your car’s engine from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere else. This helps you make sure your car is de-iced, warm and ready to go when you are. This feature automatically locks the doors while the engine is on too, and the vehicle still requires your key before it can be driven.

Remote locking and unlocking

Using the FordPass app, you can now lock and unlock your vehicle remotely. This simple feature means there’s no need to rush back to your vehicle when you can’t remember if you locked the doors. And if you want to let a friend or family member access your vehicle, but you can’t meet them in person, then you can unlock the doors with a tap of the app.

Never forget where you parked again

Find your way back to your car when you park in an unfamiliar place, or if you simply can’t remember where you left it. A map in the FordPass app shows your car’s exact location.

Remote Vehicle Monitoring

Make sure your car is ready for the road ahead

With the Vehicle Status feature you can check your car’s fuel level, tyre pressure and mileage before you actually get behind the wheel. Simply check the FordPass app to give you the confidence that your car’s ready for its next journey.

Amongst a range of useful notifications, the app can tell you when to change your oil, when a lightbulb’s failed, or whether your engine’s overheating. The alert will tell you the exact issue and even give you a recommended course of action. Additionally, you can call Roadside Assistance or schedule an online appointment with your preferred Ford Dealer, all within the app.
