Will there be extra costs for using FordPass Connect™ features when I travel abroad?
In order to use FordPass Connect* or the FordPass/FordPass Pro smartphone apps, you need to have an internet connection on your smartphone. If using cellular please check with your service provider for your data roaming costs.
- There are no costs for using your FordPass Connect Remote Features (for example Remote Start***, Remote Lock and Unlock) for the first 10 years from the first registration, either at home or abroad.
- Our automatic emergency call feature, eCall, will never incur extra costs. This feature is free for the lifetime of the vehicle. eCall automatically dials the emergency services after a serious accident. It will send the vehicle location to the emergency services, it enables them to contact the vehicle and check if the driver is conscious or not. This is triggered when the airbag is deployed or the fuel pump switch is deactivated. eCall will work without the need to connect a smartphone to the car. An eCall can also be initiated manually by pressing the SOS button in the overhead console. eCall is available in all EU markets but selected model lines only - please speak to your local Ford Dealer to find out more.
