Ford Traffic Direction and Information System or TDI has a lot to offer over competitors.
•Current owners of early-launched 2010 vehicles equipped with Ford SYNC now can visit and download and install the latest application – Traffic, Directions and Information (TDI) – at home for no additional cost
•SYNC TDI connects a customer’s Bluetooth-enabled cell phone to Ford’s Service Delivery Network voice portal delivering turn-by-turn driving directions, real-time traffic, business searches and favorite news, sports and weather – all through simple voice commands
•Eligible customers can download this latest SYNC application similar to the way they would download a song from an online media store such as Apple’s iTunes
•TDI will be available on all 2010 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles equipped with SYNC, including the all-new Ford Taurus, which arrives in dealerships this summer
•SYNC, when available as an option, retains its retail price of $395, and includes a GPS receiver new for the 2010 model year; TDI services come with no monthly subscription fees for the first three years of vehicle ownership

The 2010 Nissan Versa offers a $980 Premium Package on the SL Hatchback and a $650 Convience Package on SL Sedan, which includes among other features, Bluetooth and an Intellegent Key system. A navigation system, which is packaged with SIRIUS and a USB port the retails for $610 and is offered is offered on SL. The Push Button ignition (start and stop engine with the push of a button). It’s nothing ground breaking, but it’s certainly unique in an affordable car. The system also allows you to lock or unlock the doors and open the trunk, all with the push of a button on the door or trunk. Note: You have to have the “intelligent key” on you (in your pocket for example) for all of this to work. At first I thought it was just plain cool, and I still think that, but over time I’ve realized it’s as much about convenience as it is about being unique. I never have to fumble with anything I’m carrying while I find my keys.
