What is FordPass Connect?

FordPass Connect is an integrated modem which connects your vehicle to the internet. This means that the the vehicle will always be up-to-date with the latest software via regular updates. This cutting edge feature also allows you to access new features such as Live Traffic and WiFi Hotspot.

FordPass Connect is currently available in the following models: All-New Focus, New Edge & New Transit Connect.

Key FordPass Connect features:

WiFi Hotspot

The vehicle's built-in modem allows up to 10 devices to connect to the 4G network. You'll even be able to access the hotspot 15 metres away from the vehicle...and when it's turned off. So you can keep the family entertained on those long journeys, meaning more games and videos and less 'Are we there yet"? Every customer who buys a vehicle with FordPass Connect modem can enjoy 3GB or 3 months data absolutely free (whichever comes first) then you can top up whenever you please from Vodafone.

Live Traffic

Enjoy real time traffic updates on all roads, letting you know when to divert your journey or re-arrange that important meeting. The best part is, this feature is absolutely free for 2 years.

Map Updates via WiFi

How often has your Sat Nav sent you down the wrong road or led you to a dead end and you're left asking yourself how to update the maps? Even if that hasn't happened to you could... but not with FordPass Connect. Your maps can be updated at home or at work using your WiFi connection on the FordsPass app so that you never take the wrong road again.


Your car puts your safety first. eCall will automatically contact the emergency services in the event of a serious accident and sends your location to them. There's also a manual eCall button available to support the vehicle occupants in the event of an incident.

Remote Features

Use the FordPass app on your smartphone to remotely lock and unlock your vehicle. If you've parked your car in a multi storey car park and can't remember if you locked it, there's no need to panic; just login to the app and lock your vehicle from almost anywhere.

If you have an automatic transmission vehicle, you can also start the engine remotely - whether you want to de-ice the windscreen or cool the vehicle down that's been sitting in the sun all day, your car can be comfortably ready for your arrival. Don't worry, the vehicle cannot be driven unless the key is inside the car - so your car and its contents are perfectly safe.

Vehicle Locator

Car parks can be a nightmare - particularly when you park in a large car park that you aren't familiar with. FordPass Connect takes that worry away. Simply open the FordPass app as it already automatically saved your the location when you parked the car and turned the vehicle off.

Vehicle Health Alerts

There's no longer any need to contact your mechanic friend or call into your dealer to decipher what the warning light on your dashboard means - the FordPass app is here to help. It'll also let you know when it's time for an oil change, when to check your brakes and fluid levels and when it's time to bring it back to Peoples Ford for some TLC.

Vehicle Status

The FordPass app is connected to your onboard computer, so you can easily check your fuel level, tyre pressure, oil level and distance to service.
