Swindon car retailer offers free travel and navigation app in latest line-up of cars

Waylands Volvo Swindon says it is helping drivers navigate a quicker and safer journey with the addition of a popular navigation app, free of charge.

Waylands Volvo Swindon, on Great Western Way, is expanding its models’ app library for Swindon drivers with the introduction of Waze in cars with Google built-in.

The Waze app aims to make journeys safer and easier, with instant notifications of traffic and police hazards, and rapid rerouting to avoid congestion. Alongside live traffic data, drivers can also benefit from identifying local fuel stations, restaurants and other services.

Waylands Volvo says the in-car system will offer the full functions of the mobile version of the Waze app without the hassle and distraction of using a phone, meaning drivers don’t need to compromise their safety when using the popular navigation app.

A spokesperson for the car retailer said: "Seamlessly displayed on Volvo’s latest infotainment system, the in-car Waze app uses more of the centre screen in the familiar Volvo interface, making navigation easier on the eye thanks to a bigger and bolder eye-level display area."

Eddie Musselwhite, General Sales Manager at Waylands Volvo Swindon, added: “We’re delighted that Swindon drivers are now able to benefit from the fantastic Waze app in their Volvos. Having Waze’s real-time navigation, routing and alerts seamlessly displayed in the car without needing to connect a phone makes for a simplified and seamless driving experience.

“We’d like to invite Swindon drivers to come along to Waylands Volvo Swindon and speak to our team of experts to navigate the growing range of infotainment apps – including Waze – available in our latest range of Volvo cars.”
