How SYNC keeps you connected
SYNC uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to pass information between your vehicle and your phone. You can use voice commands and other simple controls—such as steering wheel buttons—to make and receive calls or listen to music.48
Like a universal remote control, SYNC controls other systems besides your phone. SYNC connects you to:
Music, stored on USB or Bluetooth Audio devices
Information such as turn-by-turn directions, weather, traffic, news, sports scores, and more through SYNC Services129
SYNC is customized in each vehicle, so the design can vary from model to model, but the basics are the same.
Getting the most out of SYNC
To get the most out of SYNC, you’ll need:
- A Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone (check our list of compatible phones)
- A media player that connects through USB
Start by connecting your Bluetooth phone to SYNC through a process called "pairing." Once paired, your phone connects with SYNC each time you enter your vehicle, and calls are automatically transferred between your phone and your vehicle without hanging up.
After pairing your phone, use SYNC voice commands to make calls, play music, and much more.
Be sure to use a phone that’s compatible with the SYNC features you want, keep your phone’s firmware up-to-date, and learn as much as you can about your phone’s capabilities.
