If you’re looking to have virtual fun, we recommend the Angry Birds application. If you’re looking to have fun in real life, we recommend grabbing a 2013 Ford Mustang that features the new Track Apps telemetry suite. Today’s Feature Flick, from Ford, shows you how it works.
We’ve known for some time that Ford was working to bring some new telemetry to the 2013 Mustang, and it’s here in the form of Track Apps. Mustangs equipped with the feature gather data from the IP and an on-board accelerometer to determine things like 0-60 and ¼ mile times, braking performance, and lateral acceleration. The apps are controlled through the multi-function indicator mounted between the tachometer and the speedometer.
Track Apps are optional extras on base 2013 Ford Mustang V6 and GT models, but are standard on Premium Package V6 and GT models, as well as the Boss 302 and Shelby GT500. Ford does insist that track apps are only for use on the track, although unlike JDM-spec Nissan GT-Rs, the car doesn’t know when you’re on or off the track. What you do with that information is up to you.
Check out the video below for the full low-down on the 2013 Mustang’s Track Apps.
