While at the dealers today, was talking to the salesman about
FordPass and was informed that Ford will STOP supporting
FordPass for Android phones.

Those that already have FordPass on there Android will still
be able to use FordPass, but will not receive any updates if
there are any..

Just passing the word...

I hope that's not true. It would make sync connect pointless for me.

I could not find any supporting source for this. They just released version 1.4.0 on Oct 12th for the Android. It would make no since to discontinue it for Android as app development for Apple and Android are easily done in parallel. FordPass has 100k to 500k downloads on Android.

Ford does have two other remote apps. So who know what the salesperson was told.

Ford Remote Access for the old add on modem. (I think this is discontinued.)

and

MyFord Mobile for the Energi models.

On a side note, remote control with the current version of FordPass and my new Sport work 100% of the time. I love it!

TimS,
Did you ever find out more info on what the salesperson was referring too? I see version 3.2 was updated on my phone 10/31.
PS FordPASS still works great and has never failed me.

No I did not find out anything definite, but talked to the sales manager and
was told that it is not something set in stone, but there is talk going on about
it.

This all came about because of the Samsung problems...

My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge gives me problems with FordPass and Sync 3. It's clearly not compatible...
