Intuitive technology for effortless connectivity
The new 2022 Navigator is the first Lincoln vehicle to offer ActiveGlide. An evolution of Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition, Lincoln ActiveGlide* adds a new level of convenience for drivers.
Signature blue light cues appear on the digital cluster and head-up display to indicate when the system’s advanced camera and radar are activated, enabling drivers to operate Navigator hands-free on prequalified sections of divided highways. Hands-Free Blue Zones include more than 130,000 miles of dedicated highways across North America in the Lincoln GPS mapping system.
A driver-facing camera in the instrument cluster monitors eye gaze and head position to help ensure a driver’s eyes stay on the road.
The Navigator SYNC® 4** system, enabled by cloud connectivity, is now more intuitive than ever, with twice the computing power and the ability to wirelessly connect smartphones for seamless integration of Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and SYNC AppLink® apps.
