The New FordPass Connect* modem and FordPass app enables you to interact with your car like never before. That’s because a range of connected services in your vehicle, and on your smartphone, work together to keep you effortlessly connected on every journey.
FordPass - is Fords free mobile application for all Ford customers. You can use this to access your vehicle information (on SYNC 3® equipped vehicles) on your mobile, plan journeys, or use a number of other useful features. For example, you can use the app to make an online service booking or to hire a van if they need a larger vehicle.
FordPass Connect - is an integrated modem with SIM that connects the car to the Internet. The model will stay updated with automatic software updates and customers can access new connected vehicle features such as Live Traffic or Wi-Fi Hotspot.
FordPass + FordPass Connect is the combination to use the full potential of both the FordPass app and the integrated modem, giving customers access to features like remote lock / unlock, remote start (Focus automatic vehicles only*) and vehicle locator.

In vehicles with an automatic transmission, you can now use your phone to start your car’s engine from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere else. This helps you make sure your car is de-iced, warm and ready to go when you are. This feature automatically locks the doors while the engine is on, and the vehicle still requires your key before it can be driven. So don’t worry – your car will stay safe.
Using the FordPass app, you can now lock and unlock your vehicle remotely. This simple feature means there’s no need to rush back to your vehicle when you can’t remember if you locked the doors. And if you want to let a friend or family member access your vehicle, but you can’t meet them in person, then you can unlock the doors with a tap of the app.
Find your way back to your car when you park in an unfamiliar place, or if you simply can’t remember where you left it. A map in the FordPass app shows your car’s exact location.
With the Vehicle Status feature you can check your car’s fuel level, tyre pressure and mileage before you actually get behind the wheel. Simply check the FordPass app to give you the confidence that your car’s ready for its next journey.
Receive Vehicle Health Alerts directly to your smartphone. Amongst a range of useful notifications, the app can tell you when to change your oil, when a lightbulb’s failed, or whether your engine’s overheating. The alert will tell you the exact issue and even give you a recommended course of action. Additionally, you can call Roadside Assistance or schedule an online appointment with your preferred Ford Dealer, all within the app.
Live Traffic†† enhances your SYNC 3 Navigation system by delivering real-time traffic updates every 30 seconds. This is our most accurate and up-to-date navigation system ever, and includes traffic information for all roads, rather than just the major roads. The technology then adjusts your recommended route based on the traffic conditions, helping you to arrive more relaxed and on time. Live Traffic is complementary with FordPass Connect for the first two years.
Launching on the All-New Ford Focus, eCall** is a potentially life-saving feature that’s designed to reduce the time between a serious accident occurring and assistance being provided by the emergency services. In the unlikely event of an accident, FordPass Connect can automatically place an eCall to the emergency services and provide them with your vehicle’s location. You can also press an SOS button in your car to contact the emergency services directly if you witness an accident or require emergency assistance.
With an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot offering speeds of up to 4G LTE‡‡, you don’t need to use your smartphone’s valuable data allowance to stay online. You can effortlessly connect a maximum of ten devices to the hotspot, load your favourite streaming services, and make those long journeys feel a lot shorter for any passengers or children travelling in your car. FordPass Connect comes with 3 months or 3GB of complementary data. Afterwards you can buy data bundles for a day, a week, or even a year from Vodafone. See their website for details.
