MyFord Mobile evolves
MyFord Mobile has evolved since it was introduced, and now features a charging station finder powered by PlugShare.com, which provides the most comprehensive information available about access to charging stations. In addition to the more than 20,000 public charge stations in the United States and Canada, PlugShare provides data about private stations, too.
Trip & Charge Log is another recent addition to MyFord Mobile, providing instant information about trips, including energy use and average fuel economy, along with an instant score based on driving habits, such as effective use of brakes.
Other features of MyFord Mobile include:
- Trip Planner: Confirms planned destinations are within the battery’s current range, based on previous driving history; provides tips specific to driving habits to ensure route feasibility; defaults route to a charge station as the final destination
- My GO Times: Schedules a vehicle to charge and power up at specific times as determined by the owner so the cabin will be most comfortable when ready to go
- Value Charge Profiles: Charges battery based on electricity rates; provides a list of electrical plans from local utility company to maximize charging needs affordably
Registering for MyFord Mobile can be done at here. However, if you don’t have an electric Ford then you can play around with the website to your hearts content by entering the site as a ‘guest’.
Ford’s site says,
“Guest Mode is a special version of MyFord® Mobile that allows you to experience all of the features available to electric vehicle drivers without actually being tied to a vehicle. Every time you log in to Guest Mode, you start a new session as a San Francisco resident named Dylan. You can make no mistakes in Guest Mode, so make sure to try everything out and have fun exploring!”
