Waze to be integrated into Ford's infotaiment system

Waze to be integrated into Ford's infotaiment system”

Well, it's good news if you use Waze as your go-to navigation system.

Using Ford's Sync 3 AppLink, auto owners will be able to project the Waze navigation app onto their infotainment display and access its services via voice commands.

Thanks to our partnership with Ford and SmartDeviceLink (SDL), by the end of this quarter, you'll be able to access the full Waze app experience from your car's screen with your iOS device-marking our first official in-vehicle integration for iOS users.

Ford had several announcements at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but this Waze integration is probably the one that is now relevant to drivers.

Depending on the carmaker and the infotainment unit you have chosen (or comes bundled) with your vehicle, sometimes the mapping software on it might not necessarily be the most responsive, user-friendly, or updated, and sometimes using our phones with apps like Waze might actually be a better idea. Rather than use the popular app through their phone, Waze users will now be able to use the app via the SYNC 3 touchscreen.

The Waze integration will be available in the coming weeks on any 2018 Ford equipped with SYNC 3 version 3.0 or greater. If you have a 2018-model Ford, it will automatically connect.

All you have to do to enjoy this mirroring feature is to plug your smartphone to the USB port of your Ford. The integrated experience even includes access to more recently implemented features such as high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) routing for carpoolers as well as the "Talk to Waze" capability.

Waze, owned by Google, gathers traffic information from you and shares it, telling others if there's a traffic jam along your route, for instance.
