Ford is saying goodbye to Microsoft, as the carmaker welcomes Blackberry to replace Microsoft in developing the Sync 3.
The Blackberry QNX will run the future Sync 3, and Microsoft will still do the Sync 3’s updates. Further updates will be developed by Blackberry, but it will still be dine at Microsoft’s Azure Cloud servers before being transmitted to the Sync 3 system.
Besides that, Microsoft is the one responsible of allowing the Sync 3 to get WiFi connectivity. Sync 3 is already in its last stage of development, and is estimated to be released next year.
The entire MyFord Touch system is said to be replaced by the new infotainment system that will make its debut at the 2016 Lincoln and Ford vehicles.
