Anyone who’s got a new Ford car, truck or SUV that’s equipped with the SYNC 3 infotainment system knows just how helpful it is while you’re out on the road. And just when you thought the SYNC 3 infotainment system couldn’t get any more functional and convenient, Ford went and announced that the Waze Community-Based Traffic and Navigation App will soon be coming to SYNC 3-equipped Ford models thanks to new integration capabilities through Ford SYNC AppLink. Now, some of you may be unfamiliar with this app, which is why we’re going to take this time to tell you all about the features of the Waze Community-Based Traffic and Navigation App.

The navigation features of the Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system are already quite impressive, but they’re made even more helpful with the Waze Community-Based Traffic and Navigation App. That’s because the Waze Community-Based Traffic and Navigation App offers real-time traffic and navigation updates, which will now be able to be projected on the SYNC 3 touch screen. What’s even better is that you’ll be able to control these features using your voice – meaning you’ll be able to keep both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road the entire time.
“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. With the flexibility of our SYNC 3 software and AppLink, customers can easily use Waze to get all the traffic and navigation help they need – on a big screen and without having to fiddle around with their phones while driving.” – Don Butler, Ford Executive Director, Connected Vehicle and Services
