2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Accurate Voice Activation
July 04, 2011
Ford has taken some serious flack lately for its in-cabin technology, and part of it is the inevitable backlash that has followed the automaker's phenomenal success with Sync. Say what you want about MyFord Touch and whether or not Ford is starting to slip on the car tech front, but for my money the voice activation portion of Sync is still one of the best available in an automobile.
Case in point: I synced my iPhone with the system one night last week while heading to a music gig in West Hollywood and needed to call my Israeli friend Uzi. I don't even know the proper way to pronounce his last name, and I'm sure I mangled it when I pushed the Mustang's steering-wheel button.
But still the Sync system asked me if I wanted to call Uzi at work, at home or on his cell. And it worked the first time.
