Ford Breadcrumbs Help Off-roaders Get Home
A novel feature in Ford’s SYMC 3 navigation system uses “Breadcrumbs” to help off-roaders in vehicles like the Ranger retrace their route.
Ford is making off-road adventures less stressful by giving drivers a “breadcrumb” path to find their way back to the pavement.
When enabled in the SYNC 3 navigation settings, the Breadcrumbs feature works in the background to drop a virtual pin every second while out on the trail.
When drivers need to return to the road, the feature provides them with a guide to get back to their starting point – without the stress of relocating landmarks.
Based on satellite technology, the Satnav Breadcrumbs feature is included in Ranger’s navigation system and is available on XLT and Lariat series trucks.
Breadcrumbs is also available on other Built Ford Tough trucks equipped with SYNC 3 and navigation technology.
For even more off-road capability, Ford Ranger can also be equipped with an FX4 Off-Road Package, including an electronic locking rear differential and Terrain Management System with Trail Control for situation-specific traction.
Off-road accessories like a winch-capable front bumper and leveling kit are also available for improved ground clearance and rugged styling.
