Last week, 001 and 00k were caught up in the insanity of American Idol finals during the 2009 Ford Escape Press Event.
Ford has been a sponsor of the show since the beginning so they were able to wrangle us and other members of the press some tickets to the finals.
It was definitely exciting even though my guy didn't win (David A.) but the real excitement was seeing the first hand demo of the new navigation system that fully integrates the Microsoft SYNC technology.
Being a tech guy I normally don't get blown away by demoes, unless of course Steve is giving one, but this one was VERY impressive.
To say that this new system schools BMW, Lexus, Acura, Mercedes, Audi, etc., etc., etc., would be a HUGE understatement.
NOTHING on the market today even comes close to what capabilities are offered on this new Escape.
At ANY price.
And this system will be making its way into every new Ford/Lincoln/Mercury from this point forward.
Don't take my word for it.
Just watch our EXCLUSIVE video demo yourself and you WILL be blown away and envious!
Because it's not in YOUR car.
And you WILL want it!
I especially loved how it can instantly survey where you're at and find the cheapest gas prices and routes you to that station.
And the messaging functionality is a Godsend.
