advances in technology not only reach our mobilestablets or laptops, but also to our vehicles. Proof of this is the new Android Auto interface that, together with our Xiaomi mobile, is capable of giving us all the necessary information at a glance on the screen of our car.
Thanks to Android Auto, we can have some of the applications of our Xiaomi mobile playing on the car screen, such as Spotify or even WhatsApp (although the latter is only capable of reading messages and answering by voice). Mind you, most of us Google Maps with Android Auto, but there is an alternative: Waze.
Get the most out of your journeys with Waze
Waze is an application like Google Maps, a browser that we can take advantage of very well with Xiaomi and Android Autosince it has several functions that we do not have in Google Maps and that sometimes they even improve the maps application by excellence.
Getting the most out of the application will take us through very curious functions, and others that are much more common. Some of them are:
- Routes: Waze is, after all, just another browser (although a very good one). You can tell him an address and will take you on the route you choosewith voice directions, just like you usually do with Google Maps or your preferred browser.
- Visualization of traffic and incidents: one of the strengths of Waze is its interface, full of small avatars (users) moving around the map indicating their path possible accidents, retentions, and even any danger what’s on the road. These notifications appear on the screen while driving, and you have the possibility to confirm them or warn that they are no longer in place.
- Gas stations: You can also locate gas stations, and unlike Google Maps, in the Waze mobile application yes the prices appearwhile in Android Auto the app shows the distance, you must select one to see its prices.
As you can see, Waze is capable of doing many things through your Xiaomi mobile from Android Auto, but there is one thing that is surpassed by the giant Google: full screen. We still can’t make it occupy the entire screen of our car, but we assume that in a while, and with an update, Waze will give us a choice.
