The days of fussing with the music are over. Today Ford offers a brand new solution to the entertainment system that once existed. It does not cost anything extra once installed, unlike Sirius Satellite, and is the perfect solution for today's active lifestyle. It brings the combination of the modern App into the new Ford vehicles. And it does all of this without having to touch anything. All it takes is a mood and voice to speak with.


Ford is going all out now for the customized driving experience. GraceNote has combined with Ford to make a mood-based music system called HABU that is voice activated. It operates through an app that is similar to the iTunes music system. It replaces everything that used to be a hazard in the car and replaces it with a simple and fun music system. While it can't really tell your mood, it is based on mood themes for music. It is simple to operate and comes ready to use on the following Ford vehicles:

Ford Mustang

Ford Fusion

Ford Fiesta

Ford Explorer

Ford Edge

Ford Transit Connect

Ford Expedition

Ford Flex

Ford Taurus

Ford F-150


The goal of this music system is to improve safety while drivers enjoy a personalized music experience. It includes the SYNC technology so drivers can talk to the system and get what they want for his or her music enjoyment. It works like any mobile phone technology allowing the music to be customized to the various mood choices. Like iTunes, the HABU music system can be personalized to enjoy for each individual. Here are some of the suggestions:

Party Tunes

Rock and Rowdy Tunes

Sultry Tunes

Angry Tunes

Hip Tunes

Easy and Relaxed Tunes

Love Tunes

Dance Tunes

Dark Tunes

Inspirational Tunes


The best part is that the whole music system is that its voice activated. It groups music into 25 available mood slots and allows the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road. Statistics show that this helps prevent road distraction, which is a common cause of accidents. Now all of that is a thing of the past. Drivers can say what mood they are in and a song will be played that matches that mood perfectly. It can be adjusted to suit any Ford driver. The voice system works well too; the days of poor voice recognition are finally gone with this release. It works well with anyone that can speak in a normal tone of voice and it even handles accents. recognition is getting close to perfection now.


The technology comes from the enormous database Gracenote to organize it all easily. Julius Marchwicki, the product manager of Ford SYNC AppLink, explains it all as the first time that any automaker has had access to such abilities through the APP LINK platform. It is a dream comes true for everyone that loves music. It offers a car that can actually work with voice commands.
