General Information

SYNC is an in-vehicle communications system that works with your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone and portable media player.

This allows you to:

  • Make and receive calls
  • Access and play music from your media player
  • Use Emergency Assistance and applications, via SYNC Applink *
  • Access phonebook contacts and music using voice commands
  • Stream music from your connected cell phone
  • Select pre-defined text messages (if your device supports this)
  • Use the advanced voice recognition system
  • Charge your USB device (if your device supports this)

*These features are not available in all markets and may require activation.

Available AppLink enabled apps vary by market.

Make sure that you review your device's manual before using it with SYNC.


For further support, see an authorized dealer. For more information, visit the regional Ford website.

Safety Information


Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, crash and injury. We strongly recommend that you use extreme caution when using any device that may take your focus off the road. Your primary responsibility is the safe operation of your vehicle. We recommend against the use of any hand-held device while driving and encourage the use of voice-operated systems when possible.

Make sure you are aware of all applicable local laws that may affect the use of electronic devices while driving.

When using SYNC:

  • Do not operate playing devices if the power cords or cables are broken, split or damaged. Carefully place cords and cables where you cannot step on them or they do not interfere with the operation of pedals, seats, compartments or safe driving abilities.
  • Do not leave playing devices in your vehicle during extreme conditions as it could cause them damage. Refer to your device's manual for further information.
  • Do not attempt to service or repair the system. See an authorized dealer.

Privacy Information

When a cell phone is connected to SYNC, the system creates a profile that is linked to that cell phone. The system creates the profile to offer you more mobile features and to operate more efficiently. Among other things, this profile may contain data about your phonebook, text messages (read and unread) and call history. This will include the history of calls when your cell phone was not connected to the system. If you connect a media player, the system creates and retains an index of supported media content. The system also records a short development log of approximately 10 minutes of all recent system activity. The log profile and other system data may be used to improve the system and help diagnose any problems that may occur.

The cell phone profile, media player index and development log will remain in the system unless deleted. They are generally accessible in your vehicle only when you connect your cell phone or media player.

If you no longer plan to use the system or your vehicle, we recommend you complete a master reset to erase all stored information. See Information Displays.

Special equipment is required to access system data. Access to your vehicle's SYNC module is also required. We will not access the system data for any purpose other than as described without consent.

Examples where system data can be accessed are for a court order, where required by law enforcement, other government authorities or other third parties acting with lawful authority. Other parties may seek to access the information independently of us. Further privacy information is available. See SYNC Applications and Services
