Waze is the most loved navigation app in France and recently got even better with the addition of three regional accents (Toulouse, Provençal and ch’ti)! To offer an even more seamless driving experience to users, Waze has partnered with French automaker Renault to launch a dedicated version of the app for cars. Starting with the Austral Hybrid and Megane E-Tech EV, Renault drivers can now install the app directly to the infotainment system and use it without a smartphone.
Android Auto users can now access Waze directly from their Renault infotainment system – no need to install it from their smartphone! This gives a more streamlined experience for drivers wishing to use the app. “When you drive, you can experience safer and more convenient journeys while eliminating the hassle of using a smartphone,” Waze wrote on its blog. “With this new experience, Renault drivers will have all Waze real-time routing, navigation and alerts, plus settings, preferences and saved places, built into their car display.”
Renault has just released their latest multimedia system that has a range of exciting features. You don’t even need to connect your phone to access Google Maps, Spotify and other pre-installed apps. Plus, you can install Waze from the infotainment system’s Play store or through Renault’s special app.
Waze appears set to expand to other vehicles and brands, saying it’s “looking forward to bringing this excellent driving experience to more users across the globe in 2023.” So if you prefer Waze to Google Maps and have a car that supports Android Auto, you may be able to switch soon.
