    For those who are considering Smart Link

    Quick FYI for you fellow members who are thinking about adding smartlink. Last friday (3/15), ford issued a stop sale and return of all Unused smartlink modules back to ford, they did not give us a specific reason for the stop sale. So as of now there is no more smart link for sale

    my guess is lack of interest + piss poor marketing. Plus when you can get it from the factory for only $275 or so, its not worth it to pay the 600 or so to add it plus the subscription fee

    the dealer where i work, we did not opt in to the program at all

    Or maybe it was flawed and people were walking out to find their trucks missing in the morning?

    It's a module you can purchase that plugs into the obd2 port that gives your Ford pass app the ability to start the truck, track the truck, lock the truck, see fuel level, etc. Something like $450 iirc.

    I remember before Smartlink was a thing, there were modules we could add and a different subscription service/different app that essentially did the same thing. Is this still possible?

    Stupid question.....

    My Ford Pass app does all that and I didn't purchase anything or plug anything into my odb port. So do I have something "built in"?

    I also have the AT&T Sim built into some portion of the onboard electronics of the truck. I haven't ever subscribed to a data plan though because it would be incredibly redundant. I carry 2 or 3 various methods of getting cellular bandwidth with me at all times.
