We’ll be able to link you to your Internet in the car. If you brought an iPhone into the vehicle, you could interact with that through voice.
You could then read your email by voice,” said Joe Berry, Ford business and product development director for Sync, referring to a future version of Sync.
The company is currently working with Pandora and is also targeting other Web applications.
“Pandora is sort of dipping our feet in the water … We’ll be doing that with a lot more applications,” Berry said.
The updated Sync uses Inrix traffic data and TellMe voice technology as well as Airbiquity and TeleNav technology. Best Buy is slated to provide technical support to Sync customers who have trouble pairing their phones with the new Sync. The Sync was developed with Microsoft.
