Ford adds self parking to app

Ford has added the ability for a car to park itself to the latest version of its FordPass Connect app.

The website electrek has spotted that if an update to its app comes to fruition, the F-150 Lightning will soon be able to park itself via remote control using phone apps.

It’s reported that the FordPass Connect app was last updated on January 31 and carries some new images inside that indicate that a remote parking feature is planned for the app.

It says some of these images are labeled “freeDrive” but that it is uncertain if this is the name of the feature or just the associated imagery for the F-150 Lightning.

Electrek adds that the images can be found in numerous places in the app and seem to indicate that a user with their iPhone (and, it adds, we have to assume that Android users will have the same capabilities) can “drive” their vehicle forward or backward into a parking spot.
