MyFord WP7 App Running on Samsung Focus (Video)June 28, 2011 No Comments
Ford announced an app called MyFord Mobile app back at CES 2011. Ford has created the app in an effort to make owning an electric car easier. Check out the pretty cool app in action on a Samsung Focus.
Ford has developed the all-new MyFord Mobile app for North America, allowing Focus Electric drivers to remain engaged and in control even when away from the vehicle. Itâ€™s part of a strategic approach to make Ford electric car ownership simpler and easier
MyFord Mobile works via a smartphone app or secure website to give owners the ability to monitor and control selected vehicle functions anywhere they and the car have connectivity
The new app dedicated to Ford plug-in vehicle owners helps remotely monitor and control vehicle charge levels, plan single- or multiple-stop journeys, locate charging stations, pre-heat or cool the car and perform other convenient electric vehicle-specific tasks
A value charging feature, powered by Microsoft, allows Ford customers to reduce their electricity costs by taking advantage of off-peak or reduced rates from their utility without a complicated set-up process
MyFord Mobile will help Focus Electric owners make smart-trip planning decisions with features powered by MapQuestÂ®, which will maintain the largest database of charging stations
