Ford Sync’s 911 Assist will now include an emergency response app that will send a vehicle’s exact GPS coordinates to first responders if the car is involved in an accident.

The system requires a Bluetooth-equipped cell phone to send those coordinates to emergency vehicles. The 911 Assist feature comes in all Ford models with Sync and the upcoming 2011 models equipped with MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch.

The service does not require drivers to subscribe to OnStar or pay any other kind of ongoing fee, and the service will last for as long as the vehicle does.
