How to install SYNC® 3 system updates with a USB

You’ll get a charge out of this.

Tablets have become as much a part of our travels as games like Eye Spy and Counting Cars were not so long ago. So, it’s nice to know you can keep all of your devices fully charged with USB smart chargers in the lower storage compartment of your Ford vehicle’s center stack.

It seems simple, but what exactly makes them “smart” compared with other onboard USB chargers? Well, unlike traditional USB chargers, smart chargers can:

  • Provide approximately 2 Amps of power and know just the right amount of power to deliver. This minimizes the chances of overcharging and damaging a device.
  • If you have two devices plugged in and each requires a different voltage, the smart charger will know how much juice to send to each.
