Ford Adds Waze Navigation to SYNC AppLink
Ford and Waze are teaming up to bring the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app to Ford SYNC. If your Ford car, truck or SUV is equipped with SYNC 3, you can use Ford SYNC AppLink to project the app directly onto the touchscreen from a plugged-in iPhone.
Waze gives real-time traffic and navigation information, helping drivers avoid traffic jams and warning of potential hazards on the road ahead. Using SYNC AppLink, drivers can easily find efficient routes, locate cheaper fuel prices and report traffic accidents using the touch screen or by 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.”
To access Waze in your Ford vehicle, you’ll need to have SYNC 3 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 connected, please contact us at Sam Pack’s Five Star Ford of North Richland Hills and we can help you out.
