Using a simple device that plugs into the OBD II port below the steering wheel, Ford SmartLink will give Ford customers who own 2010 – 2016 model year Ford and Lincoln vehicles that are not equipped with a modem access to:
- Smartphone-based remote start, lock and unlock.
- 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capable of accepting up to eight devices.
- Vehicle health and security alerts.
- Vehicle location assistance.
SmartLink can be obtained at Ford and Lincoln dealerships starting this summer.
With more than two years of research and development invested, the Ford SmartLink team of engineers, in collaboration with Delphi Automotive and Verizon Telematics, have ensured the technology will work seamlessly with Ford and Lincoln vehicles.
