The Ford Edge has always been a great combination of unique flair in a very practical package. While many crossovers are growing constantly and missing the point, the 2015 Edge has kept its, well for lack of a better word, edge over the competition. You see, this cool urban utility vehicle has stuck to its same formula of having small car-like driving characteristics with a large and practical passenger and cargo area. Read More

Car Features You’ve Heard Of, But Have No Idea What They Do…
New cars keep getting more and more advanced with every model year. Power options used to be unheard of years ago, but now these features that were only available on high end cars in the 60s are now features on base model compact cars! So we all have become accustom to hearing these features now, but what about things like SYNC, and Cross Traffic Alert? What about Adaptive Steering? How about Torque Vectoring Control? Have we lost you yet? Ok… let’s explain what all this new Ford tech is.
Quick guide on how to perform a MyFord Touch Master Reset
If you are experiencing problems with your SYNC and MyFord Touch system, you may perform a master reset yourself to solve many issues. This reset erases all saved data in your MyFord Touch system such as saved radio stations, call history, text messages, and previously paired phones and restores it to factory settings.
FORD SYNC VOICE COMMANDS
Now that your phone is paired with your Ford Sync or MyFord Touch (How to Pair an Android Phone, How to Pair and Iphone), we’d like to show you the basics, and some advanced features with the Ford Sync Voice Commands. Ford Sync is much like a universal remote control. Not only does Sync allow you to control almost every aspect of your phone, it also allows you to control your entertainment, climate, information, and navigation. Before we jump into each category, we must learn the very basics of how to active voice commands. Locate the Voice Command button on your steering wheel.
Earlier this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Ford announced that the popular music app Spotify will be the next addition to their Sync AppLink feature. Sync AppLink allows Ford owners to access popular mobile apps using hands-free voice-recognition, creating a safe and convenient experience. Spotify will be making its AppLink debut within the next couple of weeks and boasts all the features of the mobile app. Using only their voice, Ford owners will be able to control all the obvious music commands such as playing and pausing music, turning the “shuffle” feature on and off, or choosing between different playlists. Other, more interesting features include the Sync’s ability to determine similar music you might like depending on what you’re listening to. Spotify’s social media features from the mobile app will also be integrated into the AppLink app as well. Friends can send songs, playlists, albums, and artists to the driver’s inbox, and Ford Sync AppLink will alert the driver, and ask if they would like to play the included songs. This is the first time Spotify has worked directly with an automotive manufacturer.
