Summer is just around the corner, and with the easing of restrictions, many of us are looking forward to hitting the road for vacation. Waze, the smartphone application that provides real-time navigation, is a must-have for every traveler. It guides you through the best routes, shortcuts, traffic incidents, speed limits, and fixed radar controls, all while using satellite data to ensure precise information. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to install and configure Waze on your Renault vehicle.
First things first, let’s check which version of Android your phone has. Go to the settings icon on your phone and navigate to the phone information section. Here, you will find the Android version you are currently using. If you have an older version than Android 10, which is the latest version, you will need to download an intermediate application called Android Auto.
To download Android Auto, go to the Play Store on your phone, search for Android Auto, and install the application. Once installed, you can proceed to configure Waze on your phone. Open the Waze application and click on the gear icon in the top left corner to access the settings. In the settings, you can choose your preferred language, measurement units, and map display options. It is recommended to keep the map orientation with the north at the top to avoid confusion.
Another important setting is to display your vehicle on the map. You can choose from different options, but it’s advisable to select a neutral icon, like an arrow, to avoid distractions. Additionally, you can enable the display of your speedometer on the map, which can be helpful for monitoring your speed. You can also set up speed limit alerts to ensure you stay within the legal limits.
Now, let’s configure the voice guidance. Waze offers different voices, and you can choose the one that suits you best. You can also adjust the volume of the voice prompts according to your preference. Once you have configured all the essential settings, you are ready to use Waze safely on your phone.
To connect Waze to your Renault vehicle, locate the USB port in your car and connect your phone using a USB cable. Once connected, your phone’s screen will be mirrored on the car’s display. Now, you can program a new destination using voice commands. Simply say the address or name of the place you want to go, and Waze will provide you with the best route.
While driving, Waze will guide you with voice prompts, indicating when to turn and which lane to take. It will also provide real-time updates on traffic conditions, accidents, and road works. If you encounter any roadblocks or obstacles, you can confirm their presence in the app, ensuring accurate information for other users.
With Waze installed and properly configured on your phone and connected to your Renault vehicle, you can enjoy a safe and hassle-free journey. Waze is not only useful for long trips but also for navigating unfamiliar areas in the city, especially during bad weather conditions.
Remember, nothing beats the charm of old-fashioned maps and the thrill of exploring new routes. However, Waze and GPS applications have become indispensable tools for modern-day travel. Stay safe on the road and enjoy your adventures with Waze as your trusted companion.
