Same here. Waze is awesome!Waze - tells you hazards on the roads, red light cameras, cops, and takes you away from traffic way better and before google maps could.
It also will use you’re contacts if you have their addresses in the contact info in you’re phone.
As far as calendar appointments I don’t remember as I don’t usually go many places I don’t know or when I usually will use navigation I’m not tied to a schedule and it’s spur of the moment
I still use Waze even if I know where I’m going just for the reasons mentioned in the first paragraph
No. You’ll need Waze for thatI’m trying out Google maps on CarPlay. So far I still prefer Apple Maps. I like the way it interacts with Siri and my AW. The satellite view on Google Maps looks great at times. Does Google Maps display the posted speed limits? I don’t see any option for that.
System settings on your Carplay head unit. Set it for Left hand drive car. I guess they forgot about right hand drive cars when they developed the app.

I can’t seem to see it anywhere?
Google owns Waze and they both run from the same NAV and traffic data. Waze and Google Maps have identical rerouting.Waze - takes you away from traffic way better and before google maps could.
No, it’s not. The core navigation and turn by turn of Google Maps and Waze are the same. The difference is the crowdsourced features which are dubious at best, often sending users on some very obscure backroads to save a minute.This is incorrect.
I’ve never seen an advert whilst using Waze with CarPlay? I’ve not used it on my phone so don’t know if they show ads on there but I would be very surprised if Apple allowed adverts on a CarPlay screen.No, it’s not.

Waze has ads which are a dealbreaker.
I have no reason to hate Waze. I've used it and simply prefer Google Maps. Doesn't change the fact that Waze and Google Maps use identical sets of GPS and traffic data with Waze adding crowdsourced information atop this. And, in my experience, Waze will send me and my family members into bad neighborhoods, service roads, and backroads to save me sixty seconds and its just not worth the risk.Obviously just a hater who hasn’t actually used Waze much.
