Ford F-150, Fusion among vehicles to get Sync AppLink

Syncapplink
AppLink, the software that lets Ford owners with the Sync system stream the Pandora Radio application while driving, is coming to more 2012 models.

Ford says the 2012 Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Fiesta, F-150, F-150 SVT Raptor, Super Duty, Expedition, E-Series and Shelby GT 500 will offer the system, along with the 2012 Mustang.

Currently, the Sync-enabled apps are Pandora, Stitcher and OpenBreak, but as we've reported, Ford is looking at other uses for the phone/car interface.

Ford also announced that it is working with Nuance Communications to help Sync better understand the intent and meaning of what a driver is asking. 

The idea is that users won't have to speak with stilted syntax to get the information they want from Sync. 

That’ll be important when the day comes that the system that's giving you the pollen count is also telling you your sports scores.
