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:

I can use android auto on my 2017 Kuga (Escape) but with USB. However if I want to use and connect to my Ford pass app through sync 3 I have to disable android auto. Anyone know whether both systems will be able to run at the same time in the MME

The audio sounds pretty decent in Robert's video, being recorded with a smartphone and all... Just realized though the main thing I don't hear is lots of road or engine noise. Truly "whisper" mode, haha! I can't wait for the occasionally peaceful drive.

BTW the song is a cover of Billy Idol's Rebel Yell.
