Waze is Coming to Ford SYNC 3

Ford Philippines has confirmed that local units equipped with the SYNC 3 infotainment system will have Waze integration in the near future.

First unveiled to the world at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Waze will fully integrate with Ford SYNC AppLink giving drivers access to Waze’s real-time traffic data and navigation information through the SYNC 3 touchscreen. It will also allow drivers access to different Waze services via voice commands.

By plugging in their Waze-equipped smartphone into the USB port, Waze will project onto the vehicle’s touchscreen. After that, drivers may access all of Waze’s features conveniently on a larger display and with their vehicle’s own sound system.

To deliver optimal driving directions and traffic updates, Waze uses crowd-sourcing to gather information about road conditions from all of its users. People simply type in their destination and drive with the app open to contribute data to Waze’s community of users. At the same time, people can take a more active role by sharing reports from the road, including notifying the community of previously unknown accidents, hazards or route changes.

In the coming weeks, Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC 3 version 3.0 will be able to run Waze on their touchscreen. Other SYNC 3-enabled Ford vehicles will receive an over-the-air (OTA) update or update via USB to enable Waze functionality.
