We have to hand it to Ford, every year the advancement of their Ford SYNC technology continues to amaze even us! The onboard technology you’ll find in most new Ford vehicles is among some of the most advanced software you can find in a vehicle. One of the best parts of it is being able to enhance and customize your connected experience to have an even more entertaining ride.
SYNC® infotainment system is fully equipped to work with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to enhance it even further but today we’re excited to show you some of the best features and functions of SYNC AppLink, Ford’s in-house app suite which can help you power up even more.

Our Favourite Ford SYNC Apps
Completely free to download and use these apps are fully capable of being installed onto most new Ford Vehicles and the infotainment system that comes installed. Combine the power of voice activated navigation, music and more you’ll fully be able to be that much more comfortable when you are on the open road.
One of our favourite things to do with Ford SYNC is to spin up some podcasts and listen to it as we cruise the highways!
In no particular order, here are our favourite Ford SYNC Apps you can install on your Ford vehicle.
Ford + Alexa
One of our favourite apps (coming soon to Canada)…integration with the Amazon Echo technology and Ford SYNC is amazing. With this app, you will get the same features you enjoy inside your home. Imagine being able to manage your smart home from your vehicle? Asking your vehicle to turn on and off your lights, unlock your doors as very impressive and one of our favourite features with Ford and Amazon technology. Very impressive!
Waze Navigation & Live Traffic
You may never have the need for the Waze app to be installed into your Ford SYNC system as SYNC comes equipped with maps as well as the ability to connect to Google and Apple Maps. The thing is about WAZE if you haven’t tried it is all the additional features it provides! If you enjoy the speed of one of our ROUSH Ford Mustangs you may just want to know about photo radar or users who have pin dropped police radar. Regardless of being able to integrate Waze into your vehicle will add a whole new dimension to your Ford SYNC.
The award-winning weather app comes to Ford SYNC and provides you with timely weather changes and updates while you’re on the road. With AccuWeather, you can better plan your trips and be prepared for changing conditions while on the road. As we all know this can be incredibly important for life in Canada to avoid the next blizzard and stay safe while driving.
Perhaps our favourite app on this list. Save the charge on your cell phone and integrate the Stitcher app right into your Ford Sync system. Stitcher provides the ability to stream or download some of your favourite podcasts featuring news, sports, comedy, true crime and others. Favourites like Joe Rogan, The Daily, True Crime and Spittin Chiclets all give you the ability to stream and connect straight from the Stitcher app.
