Ford has officially unveiled their latest in-car technology solution called Sync 3 today. It’s a much faster, sleeker, and much more user-friendly than previous versions. The key part of this announcement was that BlackBerry’s QNX is powering this system instead of Microsoft Auto.
This is the first big update to sync for a few years now, and it was so very needed. Sync 3 is a lot less cluttered, more efficient, and visually more appealing than previous iterations. Ford’s third attempt at this infotainment system now has BlackBerry’s QNX backing it up, so we can pretty much say goodbye to the old days of lag, and slow interfaces.
According to TechCrunch, there was such a notable amount of lag, that Consumer Reports advised readers not to buy a new Ford or Lincoln because of MyFord Touch. It was that bad. Well, Ford, it looks like you made the right call.
