      Hey everyone,

      Is waze supposed to be in this update? I really, REALLY want the waze app but I can't get it to work. I downloaded 3.0 via USB and have an iPhone X. I tried crawling through google but I can't seem to find any info other than "its supposed to work."

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      Can't help you with your question. I don't have a Smartphone.:) I'm sure someone will be along to help out. Waze will be available in 3.0!!!

      Waze hasn't released their app that works with SYNC3 yet.

      Waze didn't work on the previous version of Sync did it? I was able to use it with Android Auto but never thought it would be compatible with Sync.

      Waze has worked with Android Auto for awhile now. It has not worked with Apple Car Play. The new version of Waze when it comes out will act like an APP and Ford Sync 3 Ver 3 will be able to use it from an iPhone. I have not heard anything about it being used as an APP from an Android into Sync. I use it in AA all the time when I travel so Waze is my go to Nav, I use Iheart radio also, and the two work very well on a long trip though AA.

      Every time I see app updates for my iPhone, I'm anxiously checking to see if Waze has been updated for this....not yet, but Waze says it's coming this month.

      It is working on the F150's now. You have to disable carplay then hook up phone. Select Waze on phone then look for new Apps on sync. When my wife gets home I will try her phone and see. Some folks are reporting it might take ten minutes before it shows up.

      I saw there was an update to Waze in the app store yesterday, but it was bug related. They didn't say anything about compatibility with Ford or anything like that.

      That is great if it is now supported. I have to wait until the better half gets home this evening before I can try it out. Thanks for the heads up.

      Well, I tried it and still no Waze. I'm about to give up. IMHO, it's a pissing contest being Google and Apple.

      I checked with Waze and they said "It is rolling out throughout the month" - it sounds like not all owners may see it enabled at the same time.

      After trying everything the last two days to duplicate others' success, I finally found the magic step.

      I had to disable CarPlay for BOTH phones that had been added, not just mine which was always disabled. My wife uses CarPlay in the vehicle, but I was only trying to get Waze to show up via my iPhone X.

      The other important step was to restart both the Waze app and AND the vehicle after disabling CarPlay on the other device(s). It didn't show up until I did that: turn off engine, open door, close door, start car. Then going to into AppLink Apps, the Waze icon was finally there.

      Hope all this was worth it. I did notice that I'll have to re-learn Nav voice prompts all over again.

      Waze showed up for me today on my Sync 3 upgrade. I had to go to Mobile Apps > Update Apps while my phone was connected with a good internet connection. After connecting my phone a few more times it showed up.

      YES!!! It's now working!!! My phone and my wife's phone was already disabled for carplay. I'm not sure why it's working now and it wasn't yesterday.
      I tried to take a picture of it, but you can't because while waze is running, you can't do anything else on your phone or else the waze display goes away on the Sync display lol

      well, I don't know what happened overnight, but Waze is now functional on my Sync 3. Appears I don't have voice so I'll have to figure that one out later..

      Does this work if the phone is connected via bluetooth or only by the cable?

      For iPhone, it has to be connected via USB
