Ford drivers with the latest Sync 3 infotainment system will now be able to control the Waze app via their touchscreen and voice controls. The integration with Sync 3 makes it easier for Waze users to be able to find faster traffic routes, locate cheaper fuel prices and report traffic accidents.
The Waze/ Sync integration is only available for iPhone users. To use it drivers simply connect their Waze-equipped iPhone to the USB port of their Ford vehicle and view the service as it is projected onto the vehicle touch screen.
“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, executive director, connected vehicle platform and product, 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.”
