I was hoping this was the case! I was impressed by what I saw from the screen and SYNC in the Mach-E debut event last night.

Unless I didn't catch it, they didn't say if it's SYNC 5 or some other SYNC spinoff version maybe? Anyone know?

When they announced Sync 4, wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto was included. Actually, that was our first hint at was coming in the Mach-e.

@WildfireOne, cool tip for attempting wireless Android Auto for otherwise unsupported phones. I may have to try that once the Mach-E becomes available.

Here's the (rather short) list of phones where wireless Android Auto is officially supported:
