Nuts & Bolts

 
 

The navigation in the forthcoming versions of the F-150 and Bronco employs a combination of Telennav and Ford technology.

You May, but your Ford F-150 or Bronco will not get lost on the trail. That's thanks to the automaker's partnership with Telenav, which powers the navigation technologies inside the new versions of the two iconic vehicles.

The SYNC 4 system that will be in the two vehicles will include the Telenav system, which includes specialized route suggestions for towing and off-roading. The two systems, working in tandem, will store maps and continue routing even when drivers go outside of cell coverage.

"Customers want connected vehicle technologies to work more like smartphones with real-time, personalized services – and that is exactly what we are offering with Ford SYNC 4 innovations such as Telenav's navigation system," said Gary Jablonski, manager, Ford Connected Vehicle Infotainment Systems. "F-150 and Bronco drivers now can get richer, quicker location search results, tow more confidently with custom routes and keep following off-road trail maps where other navigation systems go dark when cell coverage ends."

The routing system also has specialized options for customers that are towing anything from a boat to a 4x4 to a camper and beyond. When determining a route for navigation, the system guides users to routes best suited for the dimensions of their trailer to help avoid sharp turns, narrow bridges and low overpasses. Off-road enthusiasts can navigate to and on many 4X4 trails across North America, with additional trail maps to be added over time.

During traditional vehicle usage, the mapping system will give F-150 and Bronco owners the latest maps for reliable, time-saving navigation and be capable of providing location information such as finding cheap and available parking or a well-reviewed restaurant to eat at along the way.

SYNC 4 doesn't rely on strictly touch screen inputs. Ford's digital voice assistance may be used for many of its features.

Additionally, SYNC 4 offers users the ability to see landmarks and their descriptions and user ratings from Yelp.
