Here’s how you order pizza with your car

Ordering takeout may be one of the most eminently practical uses of a car infotainment system, so its a little surprising we havent seen it happen before now. Ford Sync, however, will soon be at least opening the door, as a partnership with Dominos Pizza will let you order one carefully-chosen meal by issuing stentorian commands to your speaker system. The problem with this hands-free system is that its voice controls currently dont take you further than yes and no — you pre-designate one favorite meal on Dominos site or mobile app and then essentially tell your car to order the regular. Youd get a lot more options by just putting your local pizza place on speed dial, even if theres a certain appeal to cutting out the human factor, as well as the convenience of Ford Sync reading out your order status.
