As a baby boomer, I headed out to my Ford Flex, with manual in hand and powered up my SYNC system and browsed the phone features:
Voice-activated, hands-free calling - The only downside to the SYNC phone system, is not all phones support the system. To find out if your phone does, visit Ford's phone compatibility web page. Once you turn on the ignition and the radio, the SYNC screen guides you through 7 easy steps to pair your phone with SYNC. Up to twelve phones can be paired with the model 301A. Step 7 even downloaded my entire cell phone's contact/phone book with one touch, including call history. Making a voice activated call is easy by pressing the PHONE button which takes you to the main menu. From there you are prompted to say "Phone," and then, "call..." or dial the contact you wish to reach from your phone book. Press the PHONE button to end the call.
Advanced Calling Features - Features here include caller ID, call waiting, and conference calling all located on the radio/navigation display screen.
Audible Text Messages - This allows your bluetooth phone to convert text messages from your phone to audio. It also reads them out loud and you can reply from 20 predefined responses.
Multilingual Intelligence - the SYNC system is fluent in English, French, and Spanish.
