Full list of Sync voice commands?

Just got my 2011 XLT - am loving it! The sync / touch is awesome and I really like the Nav. I'm getting used to the voice commands, but I'd really like to find some sort of comprehensive list, or at least some of the more unusual voice "shortcuts". I've checked syncmyride already, plus the built-in list when you say "what can I say".

I've also come across lists like this pdf:
http://www.sterlingrun.com/temp/synccommands.pdf

But I know there are other cool ways to do things, like by saying:
- "I'm cold"
- "I'm hungry"
- "Find nearby gas"

Does anyone know of a really good list of commands, including stuff that is not mentioned in the manual?

thanks!

Also at syncmyride.com, you can enter favorite destinations online, and will be sent to your vehicle. So traffic or directions can be said as "directions to Washington Mall" for example.

That sounds great! I haven't gotten around to logging in to syncmyride yet, I want to see if there are software updates avail.

I would think that you'd have to pay for the travel link though? Unfortunately we can't get that in Canada yet.

Hi all,

This is Seni with Ford Customer Service. I see that some of you have questions about your SYNC with MyFord Touch systems. Here are a few websites that may help resolve those questions and even offer some user tips.

WiFi hotspot

Hi Semi, you mentioned in the forum a link to help me with some questions about my Ford Sync system, (http://media.ford.com/mini_sites/10031/MyFord/).
In this article it is mentioned that Sync can provide a hotspot within the vehicle so you can use other WiFi devices while on the go.
When I called my local Ford dealer they said no such thing is possible.
Can you elaborate on this issue.
Thanks,
Hugo

Hugo,

First, Seni has moved over to the “Twitter-verse” (@FordCustService).

Second, Rebecca on the In-Vehicle Technology team (FordIVTteam) answers the SYNC/MFT questions on the board now. I’m sure she can look into your inquiry.

Cory

This thread should be moved to the IVT section.
