The integration of Waze into the OpenR Link multimedia system, which also has Google integration, offers drivers greater comfort and safety.
Without using a smartphone, the driver has 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 without a smartphone or USB cable.
It is available in European countries for all new Austral SUV and Megane E-Tech electric vehicles equipped with the OpenR screen and the OpenR Link interface with integrated Google.
“Renault is the first car brand to offer Waze directly on the vehicle's multimedia screen, without activating the smartphone,” said Jerome Seror, Renault’s director of digital customer experience.
“We are convinced that the large number of Waze users will appreciate this new feature when they drive the new Austral or the Megane E-Tech electric. This is clearly in line with our strategy to offer our customers an intuitive, immersive and connected driving experience.“
