Ford and Waze offer on-screen integration
Waze users can now project the traffic and navigation app onto the touch screen in Ford vehicles via SYNC AppLink.
In a statement issued on Thursday (17 May), Ford said: “Customers 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. With Ford SYNC AppLink, users can now conveniently access the app’s features on a larger display and have voice guidance through their own vehicle speakers and microphone system.”
Jens Baron, product lead, in-car applications, Waze, added: “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.
“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.”
