If there’s one automaker that’s gone nuts for gadgets, it’s Ford. The company that brought us the world’s best in-car infotainment system with Sync is now the first car company to offer iTunes song tagging.
The system makes it a snap to keep up with new music by allowing you to tag a song you hear on the radio and then download the song or album from the iTunes store. The feature will be available in 2010 models with the optional HD radio.
Ford’s packing its cars with gadgets. It recently announced it was adding Internet access to Sync, and its 911 assist system is going head-to-head with General Motors’ OnStar. It’s also working with students to bring cloud computing to Sync, and it made the Fiesta the focus of an aggressive social media marketing campaign.
