Ford today announced an update to its Sync 3 in-car infotainment system, to support Apple CarPlay and Google's Android Auto. All 2017 Ford models with Sync 3 will support CarPlay and Android Auto, and an update will be offered for 2016 models with Sync 3. Ford has previously supported Apple's Siri Eyes-Free for integrated Siri voice control with iPhones. The new support brings a car-oriented visual interface to the dash display, powered by the phone. The update to Sync 3 also brings LTE connectivity, allowing owners to remotely start and unlock their car from their smartphone. Ford joins Audi, Volkswagen, Kia, GM, Hyundai, Nissan, Volvo, Subaru, and Honda in supporting both CarPlay and Android Auto.

AT&T LTE not ready for primetime

This announcement is good news for some people but not all. AT&T still has HUGE gaps in their LTE coverage around the country, rendering that part of the service useless in many areas. It is sad that it can't be used on Verizon, who has FAR broader LTE coverage. Even T-Mobile is about to out-do AT&T in some areas of the country. As is, those advanced functions of streaming video, gaming, etc won't work on any cross-country trip in the US, no matter what Interstate you take.
