Mapping and activity solutions leaders Garmin will work with Ford to integrate its navigation technology in the new electric Mustang due to arrive late in 2020.
Garmin announced at CES in Las Vegas this week that it had entered a strategic relationship with Ford to integrate its tech with Ford’s next-generation SYNC communications and entertainment system.
The navigation features include cloud-based mapping and routing, electric vehicle (EV) routing, range management details, and connected services to facilitate an optimal driving experience in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Later this year, next-generation SYNC users will be able to enjoy access to Garmin’s industry-leading navigation features including cloud-based mapping and routing, electric vehicle (EV) routing, range management details, and the latest connected services to facilitate an optimal driving experience.
“We are delighted to embark on our first collaboration with Ford Motor Company and look forward to expanding our offerings across multiple vehicle platforms in the future,” said Matt Munn, Garmin automotive OEM managing director. “The introduction of Garmin’s innovative navigation features to the SYNC platform in the Mach-E will help ensure that Ford’s all-electric customer base stays connected at all times.”
The joint effort between Garmin and Ford helps next-generation SYNC distinguish itself from traditional embedded navigation systems, thanks to connected maps and EV-specific features. The platform also allows drivers to travel with confidence by retaining on-board maps and routing that ensure navigation is available through dead zones.
