Waze In-Car Mapping Will Be Coming To Ford Cars With SYNC 3

Kristine Garrett | 12 January, 2018, 21:43

This week at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Ford made the announcement that Waze will now be accessible through its Sync 3 infotainment system.

In 2016, Ford wisely chose to offer Apple's CarPlay and Android Auto on all its Sync 3 infotainment system-equipped 2017 vehicles, and owners are seeing more benefits from that at CES 2018.

It was only halfway through last year that popular Global Positioning System navigation app Waze appeared on Android Auto, four years after Google introduced the platform to improve the connected experience for Android device owners.

If you own a Ford vehicle that has a SYNC 3 infotainment system built-in we have good news for you. Waze reckons this type of mapping and data sharing will help speed up commutes, thus reducing fuel consumption.

"Our goal is to bring a human-centered approach to technology in the vehicle, making it as easy as possible for people to integrate the tools that matter most to them", said Don Butler, Ford executive director at its Connected Vehicle and Services division.

The Waze integration will be available in the coming weeks on any 2018 Ford equipped with SYNC 3 version 3.0 or greater.

Depending on the carmaker and the infotainment unit you have chosen (or comes bundled) with your auto, sometimes the mapping software on it might not necessarily be the most responsive, user-friendly, or updated, and sometimes using our phones with apps like Waze might actually be a better idea.

The Waze integration into Sync 3 is pretty much the opposite of the high-end vehicle tech and machines being showcased at CES 2018.

All you have to do to enjoy this mirroring feature is to plug your smartphone to the USB port of your Ford.
