How to Pair Your Phone with SYNC 3

Ford Sync 3

What is SYNC 3?

Advances in technology these days are gaining ground so quickly, it's hard to tell if the next big thing is already here. As mobile smart devices take the wheel and steer the new world of technology to a brighter future, advances are taking place on the automotive front to bring you the newest in multimedia integration for improved roadside safety. In addition, these changes discourage the need to use your actual handset while driving, since everything is displayed and controlled on the dashboard screen.

In particular, SYNC 3 is the talk of the week, bringing near-seamless integration with mobile devices to keep both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road ahead as you control everything from music, phone calls and texting to climate control, radio and even third-party apps. By connecting your smartphone with Bluetooth®, you'll never need to divert your eyes from the area in front of you. If that doesn't sound like enough, the ability to use Accuweather, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Sirius and more on your dashboard makes your center console feel less like a knock-off operating environment and more of a well-designed complement to your phone's multimedia horsepower.

How to Connect SYNC 3 With Your Mobile Device

Getting your mobile device hooked up to SYNC 3 is easy. The following illustrates how to integrate your handset with your dashboard console and get synchronized with your Ford vehicle. Bear in mind that the exact instructions may vary slightly by vehicle model, but they stick to the same basic idea.

       
  1. On the home screen of your center console, touch the Phone option at the bottom.
  2.    
  3. Locate System Settings and select OK, then find Add Bluetooth® Device. Press OK again.
  4.    
  5. The console will begin searching for your handset and populate a list of nearby devices that have been found. Make sure that your phone's Bluetooth® in enabled and that it's in discoverable mode so the console can locate it.
  6.    
  7. On your phone, you may have to verify the connection if this is your first time hooking it up. Once confirmed, your device is now set up with SYNC 3 as its copilot.

From this point on, as long as you leave the Bluetooth® enabled on your phone when you turn the car on, SYNC 3 should find your device and automatically connect to it. However, if you're looking to switch the connected device or encounter any issues with getting it hooked up a second time, you can simply retrace the above steps to manually connect your phone once more.

The idea with SYNC 3 is integration. Before this software came along, it was unfortunately common to find that every vehicle had a different system in place, which made it frustratingly difficult to synchronize with your smartphone. By streamlining the process and making it simple, all users can now hook up their phone regardless of manufacturer or model.
