The most intriguing part of Ford Sync is its Emergency Assistance feature. In case an accident occurs where the airbag is deployed, or the fuel pump is deactivated the Emergency Assistance technology uses a Bluetooth connection to automatically call emergency services, supplying vital information such as your coordinates if you are unable to contact them yourself.
