    SyncMyRide.com

    I just noticed that the title topic should be SyncMyRide.com and not SyncMyRide.co, so I corrected it.
  2. What is VOYO? The World’s Most Advanced Connected Car Technology We have developed the world's most advanced, aftermarket connected car system. At the core of the VOYO platform is the ability to acquire and utilize the large amounts of complex data produced by modern cars. The VOYO controller is based on a specialized, high speed data logger that is typically used by auto companies in their development work. VOYO connects to the OBD-II port of your car, generally located underneath the dash. Any car built since 1996 has one, and most of VOYO’s Standard Features will be supported in a wide number of cars. For certain models/years of GM, Ford and Toyota, you will have the option to add our remote controlled Relays that increase VOYO's fuel savings and add unique security features. Additional makes/models are planned post Kickstarter. Depending on the vehicle, you may also have the option to upgrade to our Premium Pack services. See below for more details on VOYO hardware, Standard Features, Premium Pack services and supported vehicles. By the time your VOYO ships, you will be able to download the free VOYO phone App. It will provide you with a whole new digital experience and allow you to collect a wealth of information about your car as well as control its systems. The App will also guide you through the set up process and confirm that VOYO is correctly installed. The whole system is plug and play and is connected in under 2 minutes. No tools or automotive experience are required. Click here for VOYO's Kickstarter page.

    Trac Phones

    Not sure which model you're wanting to know about. My Samsung is powered by Trac Phone (Straight Talk) and it works great.

    Introduction

    Welcome! I wasn't aware that the Ford Fusion was available in the M.E.
  8. I put a USB thumb drive into my 2011 Fiesta and it disabled SYNC until I turned the car off when I got to work. After leaving work (with the USB drive out), the SYNC worked fine again. Dunno.
