Use Waze on Android Auto

Android Auto brings Waze to your car display and primarily focuses on navigation.

To get more information about your car’s compatibility with Android Auto on your car display, contact your vehicle manufacturer.

Note: We are aware that some Android Auto apps are not yet compatible with touchpad inputs. We understand that this is a priority for our users and are working to provide support for touchpads in the near future.
