2009 Ford Flex Limited: Even Syncier

August 03, 2009

Driving the Ford Flex this weekend gave me an opportunity to compare Sync systems back-to-back with the Focus.

Not surprisingly, the display in the Ford Flex is much more sophisticated than in the Focus. The navigation screen in the Flex has a modern, easy-on-the eyes white display. It's viewable even in direct sunlight. You can use the voice controls or you can touch the screen to make most selections.

Unlike the Focus, the Flex doesn't have a special iPod cable in the car. I had to use the USB cable that came with my iPod. Easy enough. It tucks away into the center storage compartment and stays connected. Once I selected 'all songs,' the music started to play in alphabetical order even though my iPod was set to shuffle. I'm sure I could adjust this, but I was already moving and had no time for fiddling.

I give it a thumbs up.
