Modern cars are becoming more advanced with how they communicate with our smartphones and other tech. We now have news that in Europe the Ford Focus 2012 will become a moving Wi-Fi hotspot.

SellCar-UK.com is reporting that the feature will be available for the first time in the Continent on the Focus model. The SYNC with MyFord Touch system will turn the car into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. There will be password protection for up to five devices which can be tablets, mobiles, or laptops that are used within the car.

The system will make use of users current data agreements they may have on their smartphones or USB sticks, which will mean no extra contracts will be needed. This feature will also be future proofed as SYNC can easily be updated as new products become available.
It is thought that the feature could find its way to several different models once it first arrives on the Focus.

A spokesman from Ford Christof Kellerwessel said “We’re finding that Ford customers are tech savvy and – while travelling as passengers in cars – they want to be able to use their Wi-Fi enabled devices.

This will be a welcome feature for many people as it finds its way to more vehicles over the coming years and months. What do you think of having a Wi-Fi hotspot in your car?
