Ford has launched a service app, available on Apple iOS and Android   devices, which provides the user with local information and tips, including the ability to locate a fuel station or dealer.

Safety provisions are also built into the app. Using GPS, the app can identify the location of an accident anywhere in Europe and can connect to the emergency services through a dedicated helpline. The app also provides first aid hints and tips.

The service app enables users to:

  • Connect to the Ford Assistance Helpline in an emergency, using GPS to provide a location anywhere in Europe.
  • Locate the nearest Ford dealer within the UK, providing an address, contact number and option to book a vehicle service.
  • Identify international traffic signs and rules when driving abroad, and the function of vehicle warning lamps on the instrument panel. It also includes a Ford Technology guide with videos explaining Ford vehicle technologies.
  • Browse Ford’s range of vehicle accessories.
  • Find out more about Ford’s BlueService package, including Motorcraft 4+.
  • Create a road trip or holiday checklist of what is required while travelling, including a ‘Park Me’ feature, which logs the location of where a vehicle is parked, and tracks the time elapsed since a parking ticket was issued.
  • Create a ‘damage report’, which can generate a PDF report at the scene of an accident.
