When Microsoft and Ford first debuted the Sync platform three years ago, it was quite rudimentary. About 100 commands were supported which only allowed the user to navigate the menu structure of the system. In other words, it was cool but almost hopelessly basic.
Not anymore. The US carmaker on Thursday released an update that increases the available commands to over 10,000. Ford’s intention here is to make the whole system easier to use. This would allow somebody who may not be familiar with voice recognition to learn to use the system much easier.
