Borgman Ford has some good news for West Michigan Waze users – any 2018 Ford vehicle with SYNC 3 version 3.0 or greater will now be able to run Waze on its touchscreen!
For those that are unfamiliar, Waze is an incredible smartphone app for maps and navigation. What makes it unique is that it’s community-based, so drivers can leave warnings and notifications for other drivers, get the best gas prices, and much more.
On Ford SYNC 3, these functions of the Waze app are now accessible through the power of your voice. This latest article on the Ford Media Center tells more – here are some excerpts.
Look, No Hands: Project Waze Onto Your Car’s Screen And Control It With Your Voice
Waze users around the world can now project the app’s real-time traffic and navigation service onto the touch screen in Ford vehicles via SYNC® AppLink® and control it through voice command. For owners of Ford SYNC 3-equipped vehicles, this allows easier access to features including finding efficient traffic routes, locating cheaper fuel prices and reporting traffic accidents.
To use, 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.
In addition to the ability to report on heavy traffic, accidents and fuel prices, Ford’s integration of Waze includes recent app updates such as talk to Waze, which lets you control the app via voice command. Features also include route support for high-occupancy vehicle lanes (carpool lanes), providing additional navigation options and more accurate arrival times.
