Waze Navigation App Comes to Ford Vehicles with SYNC 3
The world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app, Waze, is now available in Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC 3. The popular navigation service uses Ford SYNC AppLink to project the app directly onto the touchscreen from a USB-connected iPhone.
Waze provides real-time traffic and navigation information and can help drivers avoid traffic jams and potential hazards on the road ahead. SYNC AppLink allows drivers to easily find efficient routes, locate cheaper fuel prices and report traffic accidents using the touch screen or with voice commands.
“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for people to access the smartphone features, apps and services they care about most in the car, without having to pick up their device,” said Don Butler of Ford Motor Company. “With Waze, our customers get the benefits they’re accustomed to with the added luxury of experiencing them on a bigger screen.”
In order to use Waze in your Ford vehicle, you’ll need to have SYNC 3 with software version 3.0 or greater, and have iOS 11.3 installed on your iPhone along with the Waze app. If you have any questions about how to get set up with Waze, please contact us at Sam Pack’s Five Star Ford of Plano and we can help get you connected.
