Waze widget now available in R&Go

A true extension of the dashboard, the R&Go app connected to the vehicle’s Radio Connect R&Go system can be used to display extensive driving information on your smartphone and to access navigation via a specific widget. The use of this app has been made even more practical through a new partnership with Waze.

In today's digital era, we use our smartphones all the time, even in our cars. They can replace built-in multimedia systems, as with the R&Go app combined with the Radio Connect R&Go system available on Twingo, Clio, Captur, Kangoo, Master and Trafic. With this system, you can place your smartphone close to the driver’s station to display driving-related information (real-time fuel consumption, rev counter, etc.), read text messages received as voice mail, and access a broad range of compatible apps for navigation and listening to music.

Among the most popular of these last, Waze has now been integrated in R&Go in widget form thanks to a special partnership. With Waze fully integrated in the R&Go interface, you can enjoy your drive and take advantage of key driving information while following your set route. Benefiting from Waze while sticking to your route is now a cinch.
