Ford announces it plans to add a Google Maps 'Send to SYNC' service to beam driving directions into SYNC enabled cars for free. When users visit Google Maps on web to find locations, they'll have option to send a selected destination to their Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicle via a "send" menu on site. An optimal route is then calculated using latest traffic information and is then downloaded to car for navigation to begin.

'Send to SYNC' is a new capability added to Ford Service Delivery Network, company's cloud-based architecture, which provides a suite of voice-activated services accessible through a users mobile phone. "Printing paper directions from a website is a relic in our digital age," said Doug VanDagens. "With Send to SYNC, you can map a destination at home, at work – wherever you've connectivity."
