Crowdsourced navigation from Waze is coming to 2018 Ford cars

According to Waze, "For all our Wazers out there who drive a Ford vehicle with SYNC 3, you'll see a mirror image of your Waze app live on you car's screen, and hear your favorite voice leading the way through your car's sound system (hey there, Boy Band)".

Ford had several announcements at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but this Waze integration is probably the one that is now relevant to drivers.

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.

Pakistan recall Shehzad for New Zealand T20s
He regains his spot from Azhar Ali, while the only other change from the ODI squad sees Umar Amin take the place of Imam-ul-Haq. Pakistan have lost their first two ODIs already and another loss would mean a series loss at the hands of the clinical hosts.

While integration with CarPlay would be much more ideal for Waze users, Apple doesn't allow third-party navigation apps on CarPlay, including Waze and Google Maps. Waze reckons this type of mapping and data sharing will help speed up commutes, thus reducing fuel consumption. If you have a 2018-model Ford, it will automatically connect.

The Waze integration will be available in the coming weeks on any 2018 Ford equipped with SYNC 3 version 3.0 or greater. Nevertheless, it shows that driver-orientated connected auto tech is growing, despite driverless cars supposedly being just round the corner.

After you plug it into any of the vehicle's USB ports, the app will appear on the Sync 3 touchscreen, letting you control it from there or use voice commands. The integrated experience even includes access to more recently implemented features such as high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) routing for carpoolers as well as the "Talk to Waze" capability. Otherwise, vehicles with SYNC 3 will be able to gain access to the capability through either a manual USB update or an over-the-air update.
