Let passengers use Sync Display while vehicle is in motion
I love the new Sync in my 2013 Explorer Limited but it's more frustrating than helpful when driving. We bought this car for our family road trips up to Tahoe and other regional jaunts. The touch system disables half of the settings and functionality when the car is moving which is ridiculous when the car already knows a passenger is sitting in the front with the driver (the airbag light goes on and off when a passenger is there).
Come out with update utilizing the passenger seat airbag sensor. If a passenger is there, allow the front screen to be used unhindered by your safety controls. The fact that you can't even set a GPS destination while moving is horrible. We have to use our iPhones instead or pull over even though there is a competent passenger in the seat that could be controlling the settings. It's great to think about safety but it's nearly unusable to the point that drivers are then not using your system and are still using cell phones for the same functions.
