Good news if you’ve got a ’10-’17 Ford ve­hi­cle with­out a mo­dem—the FordPass SmartLink al­lows you to up­grade con­nec­tiv­ity to fea­ture a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot and to use a smart­phone to gain se­cu­rity alerts and more fea­tures through the key fob. It’s sim­ple to take ad­van­tage of this mod­ern tech—you sim­ply plug the de­vice into a ve­hi­cle’s OBD II port. Ac­cord­ing to a Blue Oval spokesper­son, “FordPass SmartLink cus­tomers pay $16.99 a month, plus in­stal­la­tion, for 24 months to pur­chase the de­vice and re­ceive telem­at­ics ser­vices that en­able re­mote key fob, lo­ca­tion, and ve­hi­cle-health fea­tures. Also in­cluded is a com­pli­men­tary trial of a Ver­i­zon 4G LTE WiFi hotspot with 1 gi­ga­byte or 30 days of data—which­ever comes first.”
