Google Finally Brings Waze Crowdsourced Navigation App To Android Auto

The Android Auto iteration of Waze is basically a simplified version of the smartphone app.

Waze has announced that it is now available on Android Auto. This is quite convenient considering that most head units never get an update during their life time, but thanks to Android Auto, it can always stay up to date.

Waze is also a good alternative for those who want to use a navigation app other than Google Maps in their auto.

You'll be able to navigate to any pre-programmed destinations in your Waze app like home or work with a single tap. Starting today, provided that you have a compatible vehicle, you can download and use the Google-owned navigation app right on your infotainment screen.

The phone version was the only place you could use Waze up until now, which put a lot of drivers in a tough spot. Now they can view Waze on their vehicle's much bigger display.

That's right-you can now navigate with Waze via your vehicle's in-car display, touch screens, steering wheel buttons, and other console-mounted controls. Behind the simple, fun graphics, Waze is a data powerhouse, enabling the app to collect, process, and share valuable information that can inform where you drive and, notably, reroute you when conditions warrant.

It's been a long wait: beta invites for Waze for Android Auto were sent out all the way back in April, and it wasn't until early June that beta testers received the actual rollout. The integration succeeds in bringing the Waze experience to the car's dashboard for the most part, although there are some bumps along the road that might throw drivers off course.
