Waze app is already quite popular for navigating through a congested city. Unlike traditional navigation services, Waze app lets users find quick traffic route, as well as provides real-time traffic updates direct from its users worldwide.
Now, users around the world with a Sync 3 equipped Ford vehicle can now project the app’s real-time navigation service onto their car’s infotainment screen. All you need to do just plug your phone into your car’s USB port, then access the app via AppLink software. The best part is, you can now control the app via the vehicle’s voice command and get the traffic updates and navigation through the car’s speakers.
“We’re excited drivers of Ford SYNC 3-enabled vehicles will now be able to use Waze for iOS right from their dashboard, getting access to features like planned drives, alternative routes, talk to Waze voice commands and more,” Jens Baron, product lead, in-car applications, Waze said. “They’ll also benefit from the best routes and most accurate ETAs, thanks to our global community of drivers on the go who update the map in real-time – helping our mission to one day eliminate traffic.”
However, the bad news is, only iPhone users with iOS 11.3 or later running on their devices can use this service. Although Ford is working on an Android version, the users have to access Waze through Android Auto for now.
