Ford Introduces Tool To Let Drivers Share Location

Have you ever wanted to give your friend directions to a meeting point while you are driving? It’s not a good idea to text while driving and Siri doesn’t always get it right.

Thankfully, the Ford Motor Company has introduced a new app that lets drivers share the location of their car while they are driving.

The tool is powered by a company called Glympse. Detroit Free Press has more about how it works: “To use Glympse, drivers must download the app onto their smartphone so the car will recognize it when the phone is connected to the vehicle by Bluetooth or USB. Drivers can press the Sync button on the steering wheel and say, ‘Send Glympse’ via e-mail, text or to Facebook and Twitter. The person who receives the Glympse can use their phone or computer to monitor the vehicle’s progress to know when the sender will reach their destination, at which point the tracking ends.”
