Waze for SmartDeviceLink

Aside from Android Auto, Waze also supports SmartDeviceLink (SDL) for Ford & Lincoln supported vehicles.

With SmartDeviceLink you can mirror your phone's screen to your in-car display and use Waze just like you use in on your mobile device (Waze should work optimally on all supported vehicles manufactured after 2018).

To use Waze with SmartDeviceLink, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Make sure that you are using Waze version 4.36 and above and also SYNC® 3.
  2. Connect your device to the car's head unit using a compatible USB cable.
  3. Open the Waze app app icon on your phone or tablet.
  4. On your in-car display, select Mobile apps > Waze and wait until your phone's screen to turns black and the Waze icon appears.

Please note that once Waze is connected with SmartDeviceLink, you will not be able to change any settings. To change Waze's settings, please disconnect your device and re-connect once done.

For any question or issue with SYNC® 3, please contact your local car dealership or Ford's dedicated Support page.

Waze for SmartDeviceLink is currently available on iOS only.
