|You should see the other gu...oh wait, you can...nevermind.|
Ok, now that I've gone though the back story let's get to the actual point of this blog. Turns out that this car comes equipped with Ford Sync by Microsoft. Here's something I learned real fast about it: in the beginning I didn't even really care. Honestly, this weekend was the first time I really took some time to mess with it. So far there's only one feature that I've come to use on a regular basis. That's using my cellular phone as a Bluetooth audio source. Originally I had a Monster FM Transmitter that I could plug my audio sources into and tune into it using the onboard radio. Sync makes that obsolete. It's a welcome change for me as sometimes there's too much interference in the radio signal. I also managed to sync my phonebook with the car. Not really sure how that's going to pan out.
What I'm noticing though is I STILL really don't care. I get in the car so I can get from A to B. Sync is going to take time and fiddling and I don't really fancy sitting in the car for extended periods of time just to mess with Sync. So I'll be learning all this system can do in bits and pieces. For now, the music is enough.
