Waze’s real-time navigation is displayed in the car without needing to connect your phone.

The Waze navigation app has become available to all Volvo vehicles that have an in-car Google suite around the globe. 

The best of Waze’s real-time routing, navigation and alerts are accessible directly through the car’s infotainment system with a one-time set-up after downloading in Google Play.

Volvo and Polestar drivers can access Waze’s real-time routing, navigation, alerts, settings, preferences and saved places right at eye level — without having to use their phones.

Volvo Car Group was the first carmaker to introduce cars with an infotainment system powered by Android Automotive OS with built-in Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play. 

“We’re continuing to expand our in-car app offer to bring more options and benefits to our customers, allowing them to personalise their car,” says Erik Severinson, our global head of new car programmes & operations strategy. 

Aron di Castro, director of marketing and partnerships at Waze, says: “Having Waze’s real-time navigation, routing and alerts seamlessly displayed in the car, without needing to connect your phone to the car, makes for a simplified and seamless driving experience.”
