Android Auto gets community-based navigation with Waze integration


Owners of Android Auto (AA) compatible vehicles can now navigate with Waze via vehicle’s in-car display, touch screens, steering wheel buttons, and other console-mounted controls-as noted by Daniel Holle, a product manager of Android Auto in an official Google/Waze blog.

Some of the Waze features are:-

  • Navigate to  frequented destinations as pre-programmed in  Waze app in one tap that includes home, work, and your Waze favorites.
  • Start any drive using the voice command “OK Google” to tell Waze where you want to go, keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
  • Receive visual and audio alerts to keep you informed of what’s ahead and find the fastest routes on a larger map with bigger views of alerts, hazards, and more.
  • Access your personalized Waze experience from your phone on your car’s bigger screen.
  • Easily view your ETA Panel, which organizes everything you need in one place so you can seamlessly check alternate routes and adjust your sound settings.
  • Help other Wazers on the road by sharing accidents, road hazards or traffic jams through a visual reporting menu.

Waze for Android Auto is available in all countries where Android Auto is available.
