Ford Motor Company stays up to date and connected with the SYNC®3 AppLink®with the new Ford+Alexa integration in the 2018 Ford Expedition. If Alexa is convenient at home it can be miraculous in your car.  

Set up the Alexa app on your phone, inputting your favorites or linking to your calendar. Since Ford+Alexa can read your actual location via GPS, recommendations and directions are highly accurate. Here are some of the best Alexa applications to use while driving.

Alexa can find nearby restaurants or even find the best Mexican or Thai food in a given area.

On the way home you can task Alexa with turning on the furnace to warm your house before you get there or turn the porch light on.

Amazon Prime members automatically get access to millions of songs or tens of millions with a subscription to Amazon Unlimited music. Alexa can also find you a specific genre. And Alexa can order what you need from Amazon Prime and it will be delivered.

You can also add customized series of actions triggered with a particular phrase. So, you could get in the car and say "All right, Alexa, let's go" to lock the front door, get a traffic update and start your commuting playlist.

Canby Ford would like to remind you to not drive distracted or while using handheld devices. Use voice controls. Also that Certain Alexa functionality is dependent on smartphone and home technology. Stop in today and check out the Alexa integration.
