      How Do you Download Waze?

      How do you do this? Want to use it as a GPS instead of the car unit. And will it show up on the main screen? Using the phone is a PIA. I am using a MOTO phone, not an Apple.

      I believe you open Android Auto, and Waze should be accessible on the car's screen from there.

      Sorry. Not tech savvy like most here. I'm old school. Just got rid of my flip phone 4 months ago. I'm getting there.

      1) Download Waze application on your Moto phone.
      2) Connect your phone to your car using your charging cable. Make sure to insert the other end of the cable inside your center console with the bigger (marked) USB port.
      3) Swipe right and click on Android Auto on your Volvo Sensus touchscreen if the Android auto app does not launch itself.
      4) Select the Waze app from your mirrored phone screen on the Sensus display and you should be good to go.

      Yes, I guess my response was NOT helpful. What I'm saying is that you can google this and a youtube video will pop up and show you every step of the way. Good luck, hope you get it working, if not PM i'll walk you through it over the phone

      It does not understand why is a limited Android Auto in Volvo at the half of the screen, why not on full screen ?

      More advice, use the apps on your phone with Android Auto instead of those on the Volvo. e.g. Spotify for podcasts and music. Much better performance and way better "Ok Google" voice control, along with sending text messages etc etc.

      Well gentlemen, it works! It took 2 tries to get it working. But, it works great. Even did a voice input. And used the phone while it was hooked up. Many thanks to all of you. This old fart learned a new trick.
