Get a lift with SYNC

Posted By Chris Elliott
Senior Marketing Communications Manager

Microsoft and Ford want to chauffeur you, a friend and gdgt co-founder Peter Rojas in the all-new 2013 Ford Edge to gdgt live in New York on Monday, June 25! Along the way, you and your guest will experience the latest version of Ford SYNC with MyFord Touch and see firsthand why SYNC, powered by Microsoft, is one of the leading in-car infotainment systems in the industry.

What’s better than being chauffeured through the streets of Manhattan in a brand-new Ford crossover while getting one-on-one time with gdgt co-founder Peter Rojas to chat about the latest tech gadgets (some of which you might even find in the car)? Plus, once you’re at the event, you’ll be able to participate in the VIP hour, where you can get to know some of the hottest names in consumer electronics, getting your hands on the latest gadgets and hot tech before any of your other friends.

Here’s what you need to do:

Just leave a comment on this post to tell us “What is your favorite Ford SYNC feature?” Need some suggestions? Check out some of the commands that are possible with SYNC now.

That’s it. We’ll pick a comment at random and arrange to pick up the winner and give them a ride to the event.
