Ford SYNC 911 Assist improved with GPS Location Awareness
Ford is announcing new capability for the SYNC 911 Assist application: the communication of a vehicle's location using GPS coordinates provided to emergency responders. Ford SYNC emergency response app, 911 Assist, can now provide operators with the ability to receive a vehicle's exact GPS coordinates in the event of an accident.

Ford 911 Assist with GPS location remains a subscription-free, no-additional-cost feature to customers for the life of their vehicle; launches on all 2011 MyFord and MyLincoln Touch-equipped vehicles and select SYNC-equipped models. Available with certain 2011 model year vehicles, the GPS coordinates are generated by the vehicle's onboard GPS receiver for additional accuracy.

911 Assist with GPS will be available on most SYNC-equipped 2011 vehicles, including the Ford Taurus, Focus, Flex, Fusion, Escape and F-150; as well as the Lincoln MKS, MKZ and MKT.

Ford will have a presence at the National Emergency Number Association (NENA) 2010 conference in Indianapolis June 5-10, and continues to work with NENA and the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International as it develops future enhancements for 911 Assist.
