Ford’s SYNC Destinations helps folks navigate around North America

Ford has released its first mobile application called SYNC Destinations providing SYNC Traffic, Directions and Information (TDI) users with access to search for and save destinations to their cloud-based SYNC Services account for easy access when back in the car.

In addition, the application also includes Predictive Traffic, powered by INRIX which also happen to have its own mobile application. As a result, users will be provided with recommended departure time, travel time and ETA based on current and expected traffic conditions along their route. There are also traffic maps included with real-time speed, accident and incident information for all highways, interstates, arterials and city streets in 126 metropolitan areas across North America

Of course a compatible vehicle is required, meaning 2010 and 2011 SYNC-equipped, TDI-capable Ford, Lincoln and Mercury cars. If that’s on place, hop over to Apple’s AppStore or Android Market to grab the application. It’s a free download, requiring you to use your login credentials to unlock the app. BlackBerry version is in development as we speak…
