Microsoft Pri0 | CES: Ford introduces new Sync Microsoft features | Seattle Times Newspaper

Interesting times

The new My Ford Touch system incorporates touchscreens and 5-way navigation buttons to the steering wheel, dashboard display and center console, incorporating voice and touchscreen technology.

Drivers can control the car's heating and cooling systems, entertainment, directions and phone from the steering wheel by voice and the center console by touch. The main display in the center console is customizable so drivers can either feature a child's photo or a combination of music, climate and traffic information. All the lights can also be adjusted from the console. Media can be fed into the car via USB and SD card slots.

In December, Ford announced it would bring Wi-Fi connectivity to Sync, creating a hotspot in the car for up to 5 users.
