DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford Sync users now can speak an astrological sign to hear their daily horoscope, as the Dearborn automaker on Thursday beefed up the goodies offered on the popular in-car service.

The new Ford Sync services include the ability to receive real-time stock quotes by saying a company name. Users can also request to be directly connected to 150 airlines, the 50 largest hotel chains and the 11 largest rental car agencies in the U.S. They can also get lists of new movie releases and receive rating information.

Ford says the new Sync services are available to customers driving Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles equipped with the Sync app Traffic, Directions & Information, or TDI. Traffic, Directions & Information is available on the 2010-11 Ford Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Taurus, Mustang, Escape, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, Expedition and F-Series. It is also available on the 2010-11 Mercury Milan, Mariner and Mountaineer, as well as the 2010-11 Lincoln MKS, MKZ, MKX, MKT and Navigator.

Customers do not need to "inquire, purchase or upgrade anything to get this whole new set of services," said Ford in a statement. "All that is needed is an active owner account on Sync My Ride."
