When you access SYNC Services, a phone call is placed to an automated system. Once connected, follow the prompts and speak your selections. You don’t need to press the Voice button every time before speaking (there are a few exceptions—see the section on SYNC Services voice commands in Exploring Information by voice.)

Subscribing to SYNC Services

Most SYNC-equipped vehicles may be eligible for a limited, complimentary subscription to SYNC Services. Your active SYNC Services subscription includes 20 complimentary Operator Assist calls per year.

Before using SYNC Services for the first time, you will need to sign in to your account and activate your subscription. You'll then be ready to use SYNC Services in your vehicle.

For the best results, ensure that you have successfully paired your Bluetooth-enabled phone with SYNC and disabled the phone's caller ID blocking feature. Then, access SYNC Services by pressing the Voice button and saying, "Services." SYNC will guide you through the voice commands necessary to use all of the SYNC Services features or you can familiarize yourself with the available voice commands beforehand.

Renewing your SYNC Services subscription

Each year, we will ask you if you would like to renew your SYNC Services enrollment. Your renewal lets us know that you plan to continue using the service and provides us with an opportunity to keep our customer service records accurate. If you are at the end of your limited, complimentary subscription, there may be a charge to renew SYNC Services.

You can renew your subscription in-vehicle – the system will prompt you when it’s time to renew – or you can renew online by logging in to your Ford Owner account.

Once your subscription has expired, you can log in to your Ford Owner account to purchase an additional 1-year subscription for $60.00. Each year includes 20 free Operator Assist sessions.
