Introduction

The "Sync with MyFord Touch" operating system in Ford vehicles lets you pair a smartphone via Bluetooth, and even gives you control over some of your phone's features using voice commands. If you have your phone contacts loaded to your vehicle's Sync operating system, you can go even further and initiate a phone call to a specific person by saying "Call" and then the name of your contact. You can pair a phone with your Ford vehicle's Sync system, and load your phone's contacts to the system through Sync's Settings menu.

The Sync with MyFord Touch system was introduced in 2010.
