Ford Reveals MyTouch Mobile On Windows Phone 7


Ford have just announced a car in the Consumer Electronics Show ! ! ! Its the first time, a company unveiling a new car at this show. The new car is called Ford Focus Electric. The new car will feature MyFord Touch, an 8-inch display touchscreen in the Centre of the car and it’s going to be the first car to offer MyFord Mobile. MyFord Mobile has following features,

• Ford has developed the all-new MyFord Mobile app for North America, allowing Focus Electric drivers to remain engaged and in control even when away from the vehicle. It’s part of a strategic approach to make Ford electric car ownership simpler and easier
• MyFord Mobile works via a smartphone app or secure website to give owners the ability to monitor and control selected vehicle functions anywhere they and the car have connectivity
• The new app dedicated to Ford plug-in vehicle owners helps remotely monitor and control vehicle charge levels, plan single- or multiple-stop journeys, locate charging stations, pre-heat or cool the car and perform other convenient electric vehicle-specific tasks
• A value charging feature, powered by Microsoft, allows Ford customers to reduce their electricity costs by taking advantage of off-peak or reduced rates from their utility without a complicated set-up process
• MyFord Mobile will help Focus Electric owners make smart-trip planning decisions with features powered by MapQuest®, which will maintain the largest database of charging stations.

Even though the video demos and images show the app running on a Samsung Focus, it wont be available on Windows Phone 7 platform initially as per announcement. The app officially only coming to BlackBerry, Android, and iPhone, along with an HTML-5 interface for other devices. But I’m sure Windows Phone 7 will have this application when this car hits the road in 2013. Yes, Its 2013.  Head over here to see loads of MyTouch Mobile Application screenshots.
