Ford SYNC 4 Steers Drivers to Cheaper Parking, Fuel, Charging

Index

As people around the world start driving more again, Ford and INRIX will soon help them find cheaper options for fuel prices and that elusive open parking spot.

INRIX, Inc., a leading provider of connected car services and transportation analytics, announced Aug. 20 its parking and fuel services will be soon available in Ford vehicles around the world.

 

Available in the all-new SYNC 4 connected vehicle system with navigation, drivers will be able to easily find, compare and navigate to available parking spaces, as well as search for the lowest fuel prices and drive to stations nearby.

 

Starting with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E, Bronco two- and four-door models and all-new F-150, new SYNC 4 real-time connectivity ensures drivers have the latest available traffic, incident, parking, charging and fuel information.

 

SYNC 4 technology also combines conversational voice recognition with internet search, so drivers and passengers always have access to the latest information---from the closest parking spot to the cheapest gas station nearby.

 

“Customers want connected vehicle technologies to work more like smartphones with real-time, personalized services---and that is exactly what SYNC 4 offers, including INRIX’s parking and fuel price innovations,” said Gary Jablonski, manager, Ford Connected Vehicle Infotainment Systems. “For example, many F-150 customers drive from job to job in new areas where we can help guide them to gas stations and parking spots closest to them, or perhaps a bit further if they are looking for cheaper options.”

 

INRIX launched the industry’s first dynamic off-street parking service in 2013, followed by the first integrated on-street parking solution in June 2015. SYNC 4 will soon provide users with routes to the closest street and garage spot, including rates, restrictions and real-time occupancy. INRIX Parking offers access to the world’s most comprehensive and accurate parking database in 150 countries.
