Opening up Waze ahead

Ford owners will be able to take advantage of the Waze navigation and traffic app very soon.


Waze helps 100 million drivers around the world to beat traffic congestion as they cooperate to find routes around obstacles such as traffic snarl-ups.


Following the announcement at the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, from April Apple iPhone owners will be able to show Waze on both their phone and the touchscreen in their car. Mobile navigation is already available to Ford drivers via app Sygic on the AppLink platform and through the SYNC 3 Navigation System’s FordPass Live Traffic.


Ford drivers on their regular will also be able to use the mobile app from audio-on-demand podcast app Acast which enables offline downloads and suggests podcasts that will best fit commute times.
