We wanted to know what you thought about Ford SYNC, so we asked.
And you answered!
SYNC fans tweeted their favorite features of the system for a chance to win an Xbox, a Microsoft keyboard or an Arc Touch Mouse. The overwhelming favorite was the ability to control SYNC with your voice. Many of you loved the Audible text messaging feature, and told us that going hands- and eyes-free makes you drive safer.

In addition to improving safety, you liked that SYNC’s voice commands are easy and fun to use.

One of our contest winners, Jordan Dennis, told us that he uses the voice feature to impress his friends.
Best part of sync? The look on your friends faces when you show off the voice commands and bluetooth features for the first time!

Bluetooth audio integration was also one of your favorite features. We were amped to hear how much you love playing music and podcasts from your phone or MP3 player via SYNC.

Navigation was a key feature for you as well. SYNC’s turn by turn directions make users feel much more confident about where they are going.
