To use Glympse, drivers need the Glympse app installed on an iOS or Android device and the SYNC 3-equipped car automatically recognizes the app when the phone is Bluetooth®-paired or USB-connected through Ford's AppLink technology. AppLink is a standard feature of SYNC 3 that projects the smartphone app's information onto the dashboard display and provides a choice of voice recognition, touch screen or steering wheel buttons for control of the app.
In addition to using voice controls to activate a Glympse, the new touch-screen controls on SYNC 3 allow drivers to easily view their active Glympse, or re-send using their recent history. As with the previous SYNC AppLink version of the app, users have one touch access to their top four favorites or can easily send to a recent recipient.
Recipients of the Glympse can then monitor the vehicle's progress and ETA via a real-time dynamic map, on either a smartphone or desktop. After the user-defined time limit expires, the location is no longer updated.
