FordPass 2.0 and FordPass Connect

Available on a selection of the latest Ford cars, FordPass Connect is an innovative technology that, when teamed with the FordPass 2.0 app, enables you to interact with your car in a unique way. Offering a simple way to stay connected on every journey, it truly transforms your driving experience.

How FordPass Connect works

FordPass Connect is an onboard modem with SIM that connects your vehicle to the internet. Through it, automatic software updates and connected vehicle features can be downloaded and used. In combination with the FordPass app, it enables you to access certain functions of your car remotely.

Traffic Information

Real-time traffic updates are delivered every 30 seconds to your Ford’s SYNC 3 system to help you find the fastest route to your destination. Live Traffic is complementary with FordPass Connect for the first two years.

Wi-Fi Hotspot

A built-in wi-fi hotspot offers impressive connection speeds, meaning you can save your smartphone data for use elsewhere. It can connect up to 10 devices, enabling you to stream music, access apps and more. The first 3GB or three months’ worth of data is complementary, with bundles being available thereafter.


Making its debut on the all-new Ford Focus, the eCall function is designed to reduce the wait time for emergency assistance. Should you be involved in an accident, FordPass Connect can call the emergency services on your behalf and provide the location of your vehicle. There’s also an SOS button that enables you to contact the emergency services should you witness a collision.

Vehicle Status

The FordPass app’s Vehicle Status feature lets you remotely check that you have enough fuel or oil for a journey and tells you when your next service is due.

Vehicle Health Alerts

Similarly, you can get Vehicle Health Alerts sent directly to your smartphone. These tell you if there’s an issue and recommend a course of action.

Remote Locking and Unlocking

Unsure if you locked the car? Don’t worry – with the FordPass app and FordPass Connect, you can lock and unlock your vehicle remotely, so you can always make sure it’s secure.

Remote Engine Start

Available on automatic vehicles, this feature enables you to start the car while you’re still indoors – prefect on those frosty mornings. Simply ignite the engine with your phone, at which point the doors will automatically lock and your vehicle will stay put until you insert the key.

Vehicle Locator

You’ll never need to search for your vehicle in a full carpark again thanks to this clever feature, which provides a map showing you car’s location.
