Good news, Ford drivers! If you’ve got a vehicle with SYNC technology, your driving experience is about to be taken to the next level. Ford just rolled out a new software update for Apple Siri Eyes-Free, the multitasking technology that enables drivers to get a helping hand from Siri using steering-wheel-mounted controls and the sound of their voice. Millions of drivers with SYNC systems can now get this capability free of charge with the update!

Siri Eyes-Free has already been a great aid to Ford fans who’ve had access to it, helping them make phone calls to their address-book contacts, look up contact info for local points of interest and restaurants, send and receive text messages and more, all through vocal commands. Now, Ford has added that extra convenience to all vehicles that were built from 2011 until now and are equipped with second-generation SYNC tech (known as MyFord Touch in North America). That means more than five million vehicles will soon be rolling around with the latest and greatest in hands-free tech, in addition to the brand-new models that are being assembled as we speak!

It will soon become even easier to do things like get navigational assistance, select and play tunes, set reminders and more. The update is easy to start and available now over at http://owner.ford.com/. You can also learn more about the functionality of the software on that website. Make sure you take advantage of the driver-assistive features of Siri Eyes-Free as you tackle your shopping list this holiday!
