Do You Think Ford Technology Is User Friendly?
AUG
14

People either love or hate technology, but even if you’re in the latter camp, you know you’re going to have to live with it, because it’s not going anywhere. And truthfully, we’re on to you: You might have fought the idea of a smartphone, but we know you finally broke down and got one “just for emergencies,” which has since been downgraded to texts that read, “Running late, be there in five, lol.”

When it comes to technology in Ford vehicles, we recognize the two different camps. While some customers will expect their vehicle to keep up with all the various devices they own, we know utilizing advanced technology will be a brand-new experience for others. Yet both types of customers want the process to be intuitive and simple. “We want people to say, ‘Oh, I’ve used that on my phone.’ Or, ‘That’s just like my camera,’” explained Jennifer Brace, Ford User Interface Engineer.

Jennifer’s job is to anticipate how customers are going to interact with the vehicle controls and displays; she’s involved in everything from figuring out where to place a button on a screen to working with voice-recognition engineers. “We follow the consumer electronics world closely because it moves quickly. We look at devices that people are using so that we have an idea of what interfaces are familiar to them. People also expect the technology in their car to keep up with their new devices. We make sure our system is updateable to be able to interact with the next hot new thing,” Jennifer said.

She is a member of the Ford engineering team that develops the design, display logic and graphics of the MyFord Touch™ and MyLincoln Touch™ driver connect technology, with Jennifer working in constant conjunction with the Ford design studio, ergonomic and SYNC® teams to ensure that driver technology is pleasing to the eye and provides maximum function. “SYNC with MyFord Touch has 10,000 voice commands, so people can tell the vehicle what they want in a more natural way. If you can talk to your vehicle and it understands, it makes things pretty easy.”

Jennifer helps create products that will redefine the driver experience for Ford customers. “People want to understand the technology, and they want to learn about the system and its capabilities. We have websites, a helpline and online videos. Those things, along with training for dealership personnel, give customers a lot of different opportunities to learn more about the systems if they’d like to.”

And continually improving the product is part of this, which includes talking to the people who use it. The technology must keep people connected to their gadgets while they’re driving, but allowing them to keep their eyes on the road. “We found that people like the design, voice control and having so many features available,” Jennifer said. “We didn’t want the experience to intimidate anyone, but to invite curiosity.”

Rod Morris have just purchased a 2013 Ford F150 King Ranch...always had Dodge trucks...I like the truck very much, however, the nav system is not user friendly at all...I thought the Dodge nav system was bad but this one is really bad...try entering a destination without a zip code, it is obsessed with wanting a zip code, I don't know the zip code, I know the city,street,state and street number...well sorry no zip then your out of luck...why don't you use Garmin like everyone else, don't try to re-invent the wheel yourself, Garmin already invented it...

Augie O While I was very happy to see the improvements in the My Touch interface on my 2012 Focus. I am disappointed that the interface still is not very intuitive, inconsistent and can actually be a bit distracting to the driver. The functionality present in the vehicle is great, you have a Microsoft based system whose functionality has been proven over time. There's just to much information on the screen etc. I've now been considering possible implementation options for about a year for a more intuitive and simplified design that would solve most all the complaints I've read and heard about regarding the system, it retains all function present today. Unfortunately there really seems to be no place or way to really share any of the details regarding this with Ford.

Jonathan Petersen I had the opportunity of getting to know the MyFord Touch system very well when I was training the sales staff of a Ford dealership. It is a very comprehensive and detailed system with a lot of depth but I think there is too much overlap, to a certain extent. Having voice commands, the 5 way controls, and the touchscreen be able to control the same function may add versatility and choice for the customer's preferred way of interacting but it also makes it confusing and difficult to explain. Also, the screen tends to be a little slow.

Tyler Baugh I Love the idea of MyFord Touch and i luv Ford but the interface is very slow to react, and sometimes it freezes which is very frustrating while driving and eliminate some of the useless page cycles lik when in AC controls. Just fix these little problems and the system would be great! I iuuuuv ford and keep up the great work :)

Barrett Ward Off topic, keep the manual transmissions around with higher trim levels. I guess my next focus will have to be an SE not a titanium since I actually enjoy driving involvement. No flappy paddles for me- just three pedals please-

Barrett Ward It is all in the expectations. My wife and I understand that there are specific commands and know when you hear the sync dong, say what you should and it works. The inlaws press the sync command button and just start having a full conversation with it as though it was a person and wonder why "it doesn't work". Take a little time (like at least 5 min) and maybe use one of fords complimentary education sessions and you will love it. I call my wife with the kids in the edge and never take my hands off the wheel or eyes off the road. Never had a problem in three years of having sync. (except when my sister in law is in the back seat shouting random words at sync just to mess with me...)

Carl Warmington One issue Ford has missed with all the buzz about the new tech is allowing the customer the choice (when selecting top trim variants) to not check the option box for features such as MyFordTouch. IMO this is a major mistake making MyFordTouch mandatory if one chooses top trim level.

Geeshik A Borgenhagen Personally, I am probably one of the few 30 year olds that is not for technology in cars. Don't get me wrong, I like a radio, and for the general population, airbags and ABS are wonderful, but I would cut it off there. I would like to buy a car and not an entertainment center, and I like to drive rather than be driven. I just hope they continue to keep a stripped-down less expensive option on vehicles. Oh, and I could also do without fancy wheels with huge tires. Someday I'll have to buy new tires or a wheel, and I don't want to take out a loan for that. Luxury for me is a dark blue leather interior with power windows/locks and A/C.

S. J. Walljasper Getting rid of our 1998 Ford Expedition and we rented a 2011 Ford Explorer last weekend for our Family Reunion (& to test drive it for $50 upgrade). While we got it to synch with our DROID X & iPad2 via bluetooth and play music and make calls, the rest of the interface didn't make sense (hard to switch between the two). It never seemed like there was a home page and we were always searching. We have an Apple PC and use TIVO and were expecting a more intuitive user interface. Love technology, just couldn't figure out the SYNCH system in a weekend.

Christian Sync is the best thing to happen to cars since the motor and is very user friendly, the user just has to be technology friendly and unfortunately lots of Ford customers are not. Even for people that are there is a lot of information to absorb at one time and most people are not very patient and get frustrated. It takes a few days to a week for the average person to get proficient with the system. Ford needs to do a better job with communicating what SYNC actually is or does to the masses. Commercials need to show the benefits of 911 assist, VHR and SYNC Services from a safety, convenience and cost for the customer. I am willing to bet I have effectively demonstrated SYNC in my fiesta to more people than all the ford commercials I have seen. People camp out infront of stores to buy new technology, why should SYNC be any different , it's awesome and exclusive, just marketed poorly. Sync support needs a little work too. Asking a question through SMR will get you an email response in a day or so, too much time especially if the don't answer your question the first time and you need to ask again, it takes at least another day. There is a chat option and they were friendly and knowledgeable but could not answer my question either, and became frustrated and just kept giving me the same solution even after I had told them I already had done that. I ended up finding the answer myself but can imagine that there would be people that can't and wouldnt feel very reassured. All in all SYNC enhances my driving experience and I love that I can get in and drive without taking my keys or my phone out of my pockets and make a phone call and stream music off my phone, it's awesome.

Nina Moen Well, beside being hard of hearing and having a bad attitude; Nancy Navigator isn't so bad. (We have a Cobra with Sync). My favorite moment was when after driving on the wrong side of Interstate 90 for about 100 miles (construction routed us onto the westbound) she started screaming we were on the wrong road... I don't like to think about what might have happened if we were on the wrong side of the interstate for real...... If I may make a suggestion, make the navigator a little faster to react, and make the maps better.

Brian Hooten on my 2011 Edge - the LHS of the dash is great! UI is perfect. The RHS could use a little work - I don't like having to press > four times just to get to the current radio preset choices! Perhaps pushing > the FIRST time will take you right to the current preset choices - and then > anymore, will allow you to cycle thru the various bands/aux inputs/etc. Otherwise, it was a little overwhelming at first - one definitely needs a little "driveway time" to absorb it all and learn the button sequences, but after the learning curve is done....its actually rather easy to control. Am shocked the voice recognition is so spot on! Very rarely do I have to repeat myself. Voice recog certainly has improved since the last time I used it!

Ray Lambert I must be in the minority because my Ford Synch has not worked since I got my vehicle. I can't even tell you what features it has because the system isn't active long enough to see what it can do. It is a chronic arrays of system freezes, restarts ("performing scheduled system maintenance" anyone?) and resets (only when I restart the car, mind you.) Sync is plagued with so many errors that if I had a choice, I would give back this Ford in a heartbeat! You would think they would test these vehicle before the ship them out. This was first time buying a Ford and I'm sure it will be my last.

William Vaccaro I am a technology freak, but Sync needs a lot of work. The weather, sports, horoscopes, etc, are all irrelevant if the mapping part of it is not accurate. There are so many times when Sync says, "you have left the planned route - You have returned to the planned route", and I never left the "planned" route. Now imagine hearing that on a 10 hour trip. I just gotta turn it off. Years ago I bought a vehicle with Onstar. It was so bad that the next time I went to buy a car, I refused to buy it if it had Onstar. The next time I buy a Ford, I will get it with a screen navigation with the back-up camera. And while I am giving my opinion, I don't see why Ford sells the horsepower of an F-150 and then governs down the engine. Please don't try to control my lead foot. I like the size of a truck along with the speed of a mustang.

Kevin Hart Every piece of technology whether it be a phone or something integrated into your car has a learning curve.

Jason Little SYNC isn't very user friendly at all. My Ford Touch is even worse. I tried My Ford Touch at the autoshow and it was slow and not intuitive at all. I'm all for technology, but when technology is in the way of me turning on the air conditioning, that's not good technology. SYNC in my Fiesta works well when using my iPhone via USB however when I enable bluetooth to use my phone, the only way to switch back to using USB for music is to un-plug the cable and plug it back in. I would expect to be able to say "USB" to switch back and resume playing after using my phone. I am still disappointed that after having been on the market for almost 5 years, the SYNC services in the US are not offered in Canada. No news reports, traffic, directions...nothing. Don't get me started on the "4 simple steps" to update your software which, upon actually looking at the instructions are actually about 35 steps. Very poor implementation IMO, yes I am an Apple fanboy but Ford could learn a lot by understanding that Apple devices are so simple to use. I can play any music on any device with no problems, the technology isn't in the way, it just works. Can't say the same about SYNC and MFT.

Chelsey Hansen I've had my 2011 explorer for about a month now, and I'm overall happy with the mytouch system, though they could make it a little easier to pair devices, but that was mostly my phone. I am a little disappointed that my NAV system going haywire caused the whole sync system to do the same. once i took the SD card out it was fine though. I traded my 2010 F-150 for the explorer because the airbag sensors couldn't stay working. I say there is a bit too much technology available, BUT, i am a technophile and love anything that is new and geeky, so I love my car. The backup cam has been a life saver more than once already. I think that there could be a bit more user friendly for non technophiles, but if they aren't good with tech, then they should try to get models that aren't so techy (if they are still offered, didn't look cauz i wanted techy!)

I'm waiting to see when ford increases the whole screen where its a wide 9 inches, by 14 inches tall where A/C controls are also incorporated. I can see how that half A/C button collection at the bottom can confuse on whats happening on MFT. Either you put it all, or nothing, but not break it up. Nothing wrong with one good volume knob either. And the hazzard/SRS warning lights on the bottom lip of the screen seem as an after thought and not appealing.
