Renault will be the first car brand to offer the Waze application directly integrated into the vehicle’s multimedia system. The integration of Waze into the OpenR Link multimedia system, will run alongside the existing Google integration.
The driver have access to real-time traffic information, favourite routes and saved destinations on the eye-level screen. Other vehicle features and music remain accessible, even if Waze is activated. This new experience with Waze is available in European countries for all Nouvel Austral and Mégane E-Tech electric customers equipped with the OpenR screen and the OpenR Link interface with integrated Google.
Customers can download and install the Waze app for OpenR Link either directly from Google Play via their OpenR Link interface in their vehicle, or from their My Renault mobile app. Customers can then create a Waze account or use an existing Waze account for safe driving, always free of charge.
Google Maps also recently added EV chargepoint locations to its software.
