MyFORD SMARTPHONE APP ROLLED OUT

Rumors of slow Ford Focus Electric car sales aren’t delaying the introduction of MyFord Mobile, a smartphone application that enables owners to keep close tabs on their EV. It works via an embedded AT&T wireless module that communicates with the Focus Electric’s onboard systems. In the above illustration, ‘Dylan’s EV’ is parked at home with the battery pack at 51 percent State-of-Charge (SoC). As long as you’re inside the AT&T national network, you can remotely monitor more than just the battery. The four tabs at the bottom of the display allow you to interact with the car in numerous ways.

For example, the ‘plug’ tab helps you find the nearest charging stations (the default vehicle location in ‘Guest mode’ being San Francisco, California, at the corner of Beach Street and Embarcadero).

Mapquest pinpoints available chargers, which are also provided in list format.
