The FordPass Connect Modem and FordPass app enable your Ford to interact with a range of services on your smartphone to keep you connected on every journey.
Get live updates on traffic on all roads – not just major roads – to enable you satellite navigation to automatically alter your recommended route to ensure you arrive at your destination on time. These updates are delivered to your navigation system every 30 seconds. Live Traffic is complementary with FordPass Connect for the first 2 years.
With an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot you can stay online without worrying about your phones data allowance. You can connect up to 10 devices to the hotspot and receive speeds equivalent of up to 4G LTE. FordPass Connect comes with an initial 3 months or 3GB of data and can be topped up with day month or year bundles from Vodafone.
eCall automatically alerts the emergency services in the event of an accident and provides them with your location. This can reduce the time between an accident occurring and receiving assistance, which could prove to be crucial. There is also a manual SOS button in car in case you witness an accident or otherwise require emergency assistance.
Pair the FordPass Connect Modem with the Ford Pass App to unlock even more benefits with remote access.
If you have an automatic transmission, you can start your engine from your phone to make sure the car is de-iced and warmed up ready for you. This feature automatically locks the doors and the car still requires the key before being driven to make sure your car is safe even with the engine running.
You can also lock and unlock your Ford remotely from your phone. So, if someone needs access to something in your car but you can’t meet them, you can still let them in. You’ll never need to worry about whether you locked your car, as you can easily double check in the app and lock them without going back out.
With the Vehicle Status feature you can check your cars fuel level tyre pressures and current mileage all from the FordPass App. You can even get Vehicle Health Alerts through the app to be notified when it’s time to change the oil or if a bulb has faded. The notifications will tell you the exact issue and allow you to call roadside assistance easily from within the app.
Don’t worry about forgetting where you've parked and easily find your way back to your car in an unfamiliar city as the FordPass App will show you a map to the exact location.
