Ford SYNC TDI app out

For on Friday announced it has made its SYNC 3.0 updates, including the Traffic, Direction and Information (TDI) application, now available for download via the Ford SYNC website. The automaker's 2010 models equipped with the SYNC entertainment system will ship with the update already installed, though owners of some early-launch 2010 models will need to perform the update themselves.

SYNC TDI pairs with drivers' Bluetooth handsets to connect to Ford's Service Delivery Network to bring them turn-by-turn driving directions, real-time traffic information, business searches and new, sports and weather updates. Users can call up these features with voice guidance through their handsets.

The SYNC system is available as an option on select Ford, Mercury and Lincoln vehicles for $395, and includes a GPS receiver for the 2010 model year. The TDI services will be offered at no monthly cost for the first three years of vehicle ownership.
