Waze, the platform bringing together communities on and off the road, today announced its integration with Apple CarPlay to further its mission of decreasing traffic on the road, and making driving safer and more convenient for everyone. As one of the first navigation apps on the CarPlay platform, the Waze integration will bring millions of CarPlay users the opportunity to seamlessly use Waze features directly from their in-car display.

Users driving cars equipped with CarPlay will be able to download the Waze app and navigate to their favorite places seamlessly. Simply by connecting their iPhone to a CarPlay supported system using a USB cable or wireless connection (if available), drivers can search destinations, select a preferred route, report traffic issues and more.

“We’re excited to bring the power of the Waze community right into drivers’ car consoles with Apple CarPlay,” said Jens Baron, Waze Platform Strategy. “This enables us to bring to life one of our users’ most requested integrations, giving them the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the Waze app on the larger Apple CarPlay display.”

Malaysia is home to 5.9 million monthly active users, most of whom have been using the Waze app on their smartphones. By offering the option to use Waze on Apple CarPlay, Apple fans and CarPlay users in Malaysia can now more conveniently use their favourite and most-trusted navigation companion. The integration ensures that Waze’s features are specially tailored to the operating system and user interface of CarPlay.

With Waze for CarPlay, drivers can easily navigate to the full Waze experience, including:

  1. Home and Work Favorites: Easily navigate in one tap to destinations pre-programmed into the Waze app.
  2. Organizes everything drivers need in one comprehensive viewing screen before they head out, including the ability to easily check alternate routes and adjust sound settings.
  3. Reporting: It’s easier than ever to help others on the road with a visual reporting menu.
  4. Alerts: Receive visual and audio alerts to stay informed and keep both hands on the wheel.

Waze for Apple CarPlay will begin rolling out 26 September 2018.
