Using Navigation voice commands with SYNC 3


SYNC® 3 gives you voice control over your vehicle’s navigation system (if equipped). Controlling the system with your voice helps you reach your destination safely, while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. 27

Simple, real-world voice commands


  • A simple, one-shot destination command lets you tell SYNC an address in a single sentence, without responding to multiple prompts for street, city, and state. (Saying the state is optional for one-shot searches.)
  • The system supports natural number commands, so you can say “Eleven Twenty-Five” instead of “One-One-Two-Five.”
  • SYNC also lets you search for a destination or point of interest with general information. Just say the informal name of the place you wish to go, and the Navigation screen quickly routes you. For example, you can say, “<City> Airport,” instead of “<City> Metropolitan Airport.”
