Here's how Ford's breadcrumbs feature works in SYNC 3
Ford's vehicles are becoming increasing more off-road capable with the introduction of new Ranger, F-150, Super Duty, and Expedition, and the announcement of a partnership with ARB. The automaker's "breadcrumb" feature in its SYNC 3 system can help make drivers more confident during their off-road adventuring.
Every journey starts with a first step, or, in some cases, the first rotation of a wheel. Drivers who go off-roading can use their SYNC 3 navigation system to leave "breadcrumbs" that will document their path of travel. Here's how it works.
Drivers must enable the Breadcrumb feature in SYNC 3 enabled vehicles' navigation settings. Then they need to start their journey. Once they get going, the system "drops" virtual pins every second, creating a log of every inch the vehicle travels using satellite technology.
Adventurers can then look back at their trail to navigate their return journey to the paved road.
Satnav Breadcrumbs is included with the Ford Ranger's navigation system, which is available on XLT and Lariat truck models. Any other Ford truck models with SYNC 3 with navigation have access to the feature.
